This is how liberty is lost: one bedwetting do-gooder law at a time.
[There’s a common saying, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions,” and whoever said that was right on the money.
As usual this is a bed wetting politician who has gone into PSH over the fact that people can shoot targets that go boom! I think his real problem is that while he may be NRA – A rated, he’s upset because reactive targets are loved by new shooters.
Senator Merritt, while this video I created was originally directed and Joan Peterson of Brady fame over pumpkins, I find that it could be easily directed at you. Yes, we packed every one of those pumpkins full of explosives. Yes we shot them. Yes they exploded in a shower of pumpkin guts. So I guess Senator you’re a perfect replacement for Joan in this video as well.
I suggest you stop being a puritan and just accept the fact that yes, there are people in this world who want to have fun by blowing stuff up. No one is forcing you to do it and despite what you think, the majority of the public is quite safe with it. -B ]
