Politics: The NSSF still has Bambi in its sights...

...and for some reason this surprises the good folks at Gun Law News. I don't know why it does, however, as this industry is absolutely, completely, overridingly dominated by the hunting crowd.

It wasn't until five or ten years ago that industry trade rags acknowledged that there even was another use for a gun outside the hunting fields, save the occasional passing reference to Camp Perry. Look, folks, the NSSF logo is going to feature Bambi or Daffy getting his just desserts for the next 10 to 30 years, until enough of the Hunting Mafia that has controlled the shooting industry in this country shuffle off their mortal coils, and are replaced by younger folks who got into guns via the other shooting sports, or for self-protection, or as a political statement in the early '90s. Fact. Sad fact, but fact.
