Paul Martin, Jean Chretien, Alan Rock., Hoadie, I couldn't agree more. "To conquer a nation, you must first disarm it's citizens". Guess what great politician said that?

Every nation that has disarmed its populace, has used arms against them.

The UK?
 We have been largely disarmed and far from it being done by force of arms, you seldom / never see a policeman armed .

Sadly he's right, they just quietly surrendered.

Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way” is how Roger Waters of Pink Floyd summed up the English character, at least during the period in which he wrote the classic hit, “Time.”

If a derannged person walks into an infants school and kills kids with a 5 iron golf club; the medai will say " Madman attacks children" if he's carrying a gun it's "Gunman attacks children" They seem to forget the fact that you have to be absolutely bonker's to want to kill kids.

Fix the mental health issues, the drug issues, the my Kid's on the X-box all day issues, the education issues and the problem will take care of it's self.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Yep, I've been unsuccessfully banging on about that for years.
Its not that they can't hear, but that they WON'T hear.

Schools are attacked because they are soft targets. Most of them have no security. What security they do have is unarmed. We protect our banks, courts, jewelry stores and yes, even junkyards with armed guards. Our children and teachers are protected with a sign that says "This Is A Gun Free Zone."

Then I got to thinking: Am I to believe that a handful of highschool students organized a huge rally on capitol hill, in such a short time - on their own? And so incredibly well choreographed & prepared?

Maybe I'm strange..but this doesn't seem possible to me. I'm wondering if bigger interests aren't at play here.

(Maybe I shouldn't sit & think so much)

They didn't. The anti-gun groups are prepped and ready in the event there is a school shooting. My kids both teach. The Florida shooting took place on a Wednesday. Thursday morning, the Newtown/Sandyhook group called my son's school asking, actually demanding, time to speak. The superintendent at the school said fine, you can put your presentation on. But we're giving a local NRA affiliate equal time. The Newtown group didn't like that. They don't want both sides to be presented.

The governor of our state made a speech about honoring and protecting our 2nd Amendment rights.
And then he proposed a broad ban of semi-auto firearms that included .22's and weapons licensed under Curio & Relic Firearms licenses.

Then he said "Nobody is trying to take guns away from anybody." Really? Could've' fooled me!

Shamu.
Nowhere in the entire list does it include any centerfire rifle produced by Enfield.
Top to bottom. 50 caliber blackpowder pistol,
36. caliber blackpowder pistol.
38 caliber da pistol,
45 caliber single action pistol.
Top to bottom. .25 caliber pellet rifle,JC Higgins bolt action 20 gauge shotgun, Winchester model 1400 MkII 12 gauge shotgun, Marlin 39A .22 lever action.

Top to bottom. A bunch of bolt action Enfield rifles.
These are all exempted from the list of weapons systems they want to ban.

I need to rephrase that. Nowhere was listed an Enfield bolt action rifle.

I did not realize your No5 had a cheek piece. Do you mount a scope on it or just lines your eye up better to the appature?

Like that Marlin 39A. Wish I had one as I like the Marlin lever guns. Have a .30-30 and .44 and they're fine rifles.
