I wish it could make a difference, but I'm way behind enemy lines. All they can think of here is the heroism of the firefighters and cops at the WTC. What happened on Flight 93 that went down in Pennsylvania is completely lost upon them, other than Hillary, Schumer, etc. voted to arm pilots for which I called them. I'm sure they did that horrified at the prospect of a commercial airliner being destroyed by a combat air patrol, not as defenders of a right to self defense.
I did make a point with both, concerning the REAL motive behind the "assault weps" law, as well as the damn magazine limit, and especially the idiocy of the criteria, which, as we all know, has little or nothing to do with reality, and believe it or not, neither one of them was actually familiar with the precise tech description of "assault rifle" (the selective fire feature) so, maybe in that respect, I managed to get a little educating in during the phone calls, and explained about the NFA, ownership of NFA firearms regulations, etc.
I sure hope that they remember at least a little of what I went over, most people kind of find the detail tedious and can't make the distinction (select fire v semi auto), and the semantics about "semi auto" (OK, most people call a 1911 or 1911A1 .45 the "45 automatic", and most everyone understands what is actually meant, yet the grabbers seem to vilify "semi-automatic"). The term seems to be a buzzword for unreality (Gee, the pistol was semiautomatic, I guess it can shoot through armor, create huge destructive fireballs, and is only one step removed from a WMD < /sarcasm>.
That being said, I sure as heck wish that it was easier to explain things firearm, since there seems to be just too many hoplophobes out there, using the terms I have used since I have been a kid, and was told that "even a cap pistol is treated like it was loaded, all the time", as a part of the seamless firearms safety education of my childhood, as well as the trust my grandparents and parents placed in me (I was allowed to have a gun case/rack in my room [built by my dad]for my BB gun, first .22 rifle, and any pistol which my grandfather and dad owned that I was shooting at the time), this was at 6-7 years of age, and the lesson was not forgotten!! Now, of course this was in the '50s, but I still appreciate the trust and many learning opportunities which I enjoyed. It's rough getting a lot of the info across, but with God's help, we will get the message to the people who need it, and manage to at least turn back some of the idiocy.
