Referring to your column of Feb. 3, “That rifle looks bad,” excuse me, Mike, but you are just now “getting the impression” that people are trying to ban guns because of the way they look?
You need to wake up and smell the gun smoke. This has been going on for decades.
You seem OK with limiting magazines to 10 rounds. How many .22 semi-auto rifles with tube magazines under the barrel would now be banned?
I guess if most traffic accidents involved cars with eight-cylinder engines then banning cars with more than four cylinders would be OK too. Follows the same line of logic.
We need to enforce the current gun laws, not make more ill-conceived new laws.
The current rash of gun law proposals stem from the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. This is just being used by gun grabbing politicians to further a political agenda and gain them more votes.
Never let a tragedy go to waste. How shameful.
Outdoor Editor’s note: You may be confusing analysis with advocacy.

We feel pretty lucky on this side of the Potomac to have a nice shooting range to utilize for free and within decent driving distance.
