    other people are just tools of the gun control movement and are best used as examples
    While there have been setbacks, the historical trend favors greater restrictions. That would indicate that a change in tactics is called for.

    Actually the courts have come around to our side and CCW permits-once rare 30 years ago, are now the rule in most states. The scholarship is on our side as is the empirical evidence. The biggest obstacle we face is dishonest media and politicians who lie

    I would admit that the last 20 years has gone well for you. However, both long-term history and recent sympathies suggest that may be an aberration

    well maybe the final showdown will involve those who have guns dealing with those who want others with guns to disarm the former

    I kind of think I know who will win that argument

    1) Your hands help keep the gun tight. Not an accessory. I take it you don't use long arms?

    2) That is a ridiculous comment. 1 handed shooting is not efficient. It doesn't matter what grip you have. Life ain't a video game son. You try shoot 1 handed if you like, I and the rest of knowledgable shooters will select our grip based on comfort.

    3) And so you want to base legislation against pistol grips because of a select few scenarios where a shooter is already wounded and essentially out of the fight? Dude get real.

    This is a busted argument. Give up before you even further educate us on your lack of knowledge.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    IN all fairness, Sangha has been rather careful not to actually come out and support bans based on these features
