If they ever tried this hoopla in my neck of the woods (upper penninsula of Michigan) there would be an uproar and possibly a riot to follow. Politicians would be ousted from office at first available election date and they know it. If they, god forbid, got something like this to pass and release this burden to the public they would find a large number of people moving to other parts of the country thereby decreasing tax revenue they recieve years later. I for one would seriously consider moving to Canada as now with more and more liberals looking to get rid of our guns, maybe its time to question where this country is heading and if I even enjoy the "privelages", not rights anymore.[:@] The day I hunt whitetail with a shotgun instead of my 270 WSM or 243 is the day I quit my job and tell the wife to pack it up. I puke in my mouth a little even thinking about it! Shotguns are for small game, rifles for big game where I come from. Responsibility while wielding the weapon comes first and foremost from hunter's safety, not needless bans that hold no relevence to unproven results!
