I ran across this by accident. From your friends at the New York Times.

But the ad itself is further evidence of the gun culture's continuing insensitivity to public safety.

Quote:
Since semiautomatic hunting rifles are legal, gun lobbyists say, semiautomatic assault weapons should be legal too; both require a trigger pull for each shot. That's disingenuous. Assault rifles are not designed to shoot animals at a distance. Furthermore, they accept large magazines that permit sprays of rapid fire and are thus suited for human combat at close range.

Yes, I do. It's still the most ridiculous article I've ever read.

What amuses me is that you were about 11 when it was published and I was in the police academy...

the author, who has passed, was a minister.

Most likely the perspective he had when writing that article.

Quakers are generally pacifist and nonviolent, so it would be an easy presumption to make.

I don't believe that the author ever mentioned it. In reference to the author's possible perspective in writing the article: while not absolute, being a Quaker and subscribing to the Peace Testimony might be a contributing factor in his bias against rifle designs that are used by military in armed conflicts, and not for hunting. That's all I was alluding to.

Then again, given you know two Quakers who are clearly not anti-gun, it might not be that big a factor.
