Blackfork relays to us a video of the Panola County Club Championship for 2008.Â Sounds like this club is lucky enough to have several high masters.Â You will notice which types of rifles seem to be preferred; exactly the type our local congress critters Patrick Murphy and Alyson Schwartz have signed on to ban:
These matches don’t just happen in Texas.Â They happen all over Pennsylvania too.Â My club isn’t lucky enough to have a 600 yard range, but we make due at 200 using reduced targets to approximate distance.Â This language in HR1022 should tell you exactly the kind of underhanded gun banners Schwartz and Murphy really are:
A semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General. In making the determination, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any Federal law enfocement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.
You can forget about your M1 Garand too.Â There are plenty of other semi-auto rifles that have their roots in a military design.Â Note the last part, which says that just because a firearm actually is used in sport doesn’t mean it’s for sporting purposes.Â In fact, it demands the US Attorney General presume as much.
