Many are hunters. Guys in the trap & skeet crowd have money, and they have the ears of politicians, particularly on the local level. Most want no restrictions on the 2A whatsoever. We alienate them at our peril.
Just because Pop's shoots a Perazzi at the trap range and doesn't own anything more "tactical" than a Mini-14 doesn't mean that when he goes golfing with our State Rep he doesn't bend his ear about why gun control is bad.
If the above is true, and I believe it is, we're better off than I thought.

For the record, I'd like to correct the following sentence from post 26:
"Hunters don't care about 30 round magazines."

Should read:

Anti-gun politicians claim that hunters don't care about, nor need 30 round magazines.
Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable."
