Thanks DaBears and Rookie, I can see you took my original post for what it was and didn't read between the lines!
Hats off to you guys and others.
My post was not intended to offend anyone (and I am having a hard time apologizing for anything here, but will anyways), and if you go back and read my response to the first responder, you will see I didn't take a side and respected his position/opinion on the issue. I clearly stated they all speak out of both sides of mouths on these issues! We all know they do!
I didn't make an attack on anyone, I just have concerns about what is to come for us hunters based on what had almost happened here in Illinois, or more specifically cook county earlier this year. Who supported that boys?
I hoped we could have some decent opinions on what everyone thought might be in the future for those of us that like to hunt with semi-auto shotguns or rifles!
I hate to think I will no longer be able to use my 742 that was passed down to me. It means plenty to me!
I too think that Tubes and others hit many great points on the issue and things were going fine. I was interested in how others felt about the issue "gun control and its effects on hunters".
I'm going to be very blunt now, however I will not be specific, all of you over sensitive individuals who can't discuss anything like a man, who usually don't post here anyway, who don't care what you hunt with and might not even hunt, might want to go back to your fishing forums, have some cheese with your whine, stop stirring things up here, and we will all laugh at you when you too can't hunt with your Grandpa’s semi-auto or at all, and start to cry then too!
It is you folks that turn things around and change the direction of posts on this site! This is what causes threads to deteriorate and be locked. If the original post was out of line, it wouldn't be 3 pages before it was locked! What a bunch of BS!
It was the right choice Ed, considering the direction some caused it to go!
Kudos to ya there.
Maybe it would be best to lock this now too as the personal attacks from the over sensitive are certainly not needed.
