And that's rifles and handguns...and I'm sure I don't need to explain to anyone here what precious little difference there is between a revolver and a semi handgun...for that matter what precious little difference there is between a semi rifle and say a pump action...

And let's all remember, the national media has now branded a .223 as a "high-powered" rifle.

How's this for concerning?
“There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering,” the group stated in its alert. “You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the state police and avoid prosecution.” - Illinois State Rifle Association.

Not sure where they got that information, it's not clearly referenced in the article.

Hopefully it won't pass there, but man, it's scary that such stuff is actually being advanced for votes now.

And as another member posted, in nearby Iowa an editorial was published that called for violence against NRA and GOP leaders.

There are people on this site who hunt deer with a .223. Do you think they are hunting with a weapon incapable of taking big game; a weapon that is not a high power rifle? What do you consider to be a high power rifle?

Jimsdad, not implying that at all sir, and not trying to offend anyone who carries one. .223 is a fine deer caliber, but it's also at the low end of permitted deer rifles in PA. Can you imagine what the un-informed media and anti-gun activists would think if they knew how much more powerful most deer rifles are?

I think the media's 'high-powered' description belongs in the same place as their 'assault-weapon' description - in the trash.
