Fear mongering. Misinformation. I never wanted or needed a centerfire semi auto rifle where I live. I don't currently hunt and the ranges here are all like 100 yards. But I ended up purchasing a semi-auto centerfire rifle when I realized they were likely going to ban them at some point.
I also bought a fair amount of ammo because getting cheaper online ammo is also likely going to disappear.
I now say to whomever is a democrat, no matter what state you live in, choose wisely in this election. Think about the STUPID laws in California and then think about if they were FEDERAL laws. Don't laugh too hard because the whole country suffered under the last Cilnton ban for a long, long time. This time the restrictions will probably be just as bad as California, or even worse.
