    It's the "old guard".
    These old self centered elitists that think hunting should only be done with overly priced hunting specific bolt actions and that all others are not hunting rifles. It does demonstrate how they will write all about the 2nd amendment, but like others, their version of that amendment only fits their version of the sport. (I added my 2 cents to his blog too)

    Holy smokes. I read about 80 responses to the blog and I couldn't keep up with all the responses. Sounded like he just dug himself a large grave!

    That's the impression that I got from the people that posted about Petzal, but upon reading the entry that was linked above, I tend to agree with what he said. Society likes to see anyone brought down, and the amount of knee jerk rabid responses paint a lovely picture of 'gun nuts' that isn't any more accurate than the other portrayals we get.

    If I'm reading the wrong link, disregard.

    Aha.. found the article in question. Now it makes sense.

    Here is the excerpt I found most telling about Petzal:

    Ah, the hunting elitists strike again, demonstrating their usual lack of comprehension of the firearms debate and what the Second Amendment really means.

    The author of those blog posts has a point - the looney bin opened up and ruthlessly descended on Zumbo. I never could fully load the page on Zumbo's original post - too many freaking comments - and was noticing that many of them were angry, destructive rants.

    Funny that the hunting elitists think that society is strong enough to maintain order at all times. 'Guess they ignored the brief collapse of civilization after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans...

    Petzal's not going anywhere, and for the most part I think he's right.

    I love how the hunters use the "it's designed solely to kill people" argument. How many of the rounds that a hunter uses were designed with the "killing people" goal in mind? They need to be careful using that argument because if they want to get rid of all guns that shoot something that was originialy designed to kill people then they'll soon find themselves with a very small choice of ammunition.

    They need to outlaw slingshots too! Those were very deadly weapons back in the sticks and stone days!

    What's next? Are they going to outlaw hunting too? Are they going to require lethal injection to cows instead of getting the current execution process?

    It's funny to see everyone referring to "elitist hunters" when anyone who hunts is referred to as a "Fudd" by the AR15 crew in the comment section. :hsugh:

    sounds like they care not at all for the spirit of the second amendment and for some reason think it should only apply to hunting. our forefathers are probably rolling in their graves.

    It's just like the Ford versus Chevy guys.

    I don't hunt (hopefully will change soon) but I do a lot of sport shooting. I will also be getting into trap shooting as well. They are opposite ends of the spectrum. In order to make any forward progress the hunters need to protect the sport shooters, just as the sport shooters need to protect the hunters. You either support guns or you don't.

    I wonder what they did when they saw the Patriot Act. :noes: I bet the future zombie invasion will be our ancestors coming back from the dead to slap us back into reality. :eek3:

    No good can come from any of this, now you're just going to have a bunch of gun owners painted as lunatics who swarm on anyone with a dissenting opinion. :coolugh:

    I agree, there was a guy that actually posted that he's now going to vote for an bill outlawing lead hunting ammunition because of this :ugh: I'm sure after they outlaw lead for hunting they would go after it on outdoor ranges too :hsugh:
