Thank you for your common sense, it will however fall on the deaf ear of those
who believe it is their constitutional right to shoot whatever they want,
whenever they want. You must have done time in the red army to believe
But if I can't shoot exploding or tracer rounds in the dry grasses of late
summer, that just means Obama took another one of my freedoms away.
The press blew the target shooter started fires way out of proportion. Over 600
fires this last summer and 20 started by careless shooters. The only ones we
heard about their origin were the target shooters. The only thing that can cause
fires whie shooting are exploding targets or tracers. Copper and lead don't
spark, in spite of what you see in the movies. Let's keep some perspective.
Common sense?That isn't exactly being put on display up at the
Capitol Building. In fact, many are acting down right hypocritical. They are
taking away cities' right to determine which fireworks to allow. What
happened to local control? Like the federal government, our Utah Legislature
seems bent on being the (only) ones in control.
But it's my right to shoot tracers and exploding shells just like the
National Guard did that time.How can I pretend that I'm
defending the world as I blast away at beer cans if I can't shoot anywhere
and any time I want.It's just another attempt to deprive me of
my Second Amendment rights!

that is what this letter said and what is being discussed? or did you not read
the letter before commenting?
I insist on my 2nd amendment right to keep and bear [and use] my flame-thrower,
napalm, and molotov cocktails anywhere and anytime I like.Dry Utah
desert, summer time or not!Anything else is a socialist Obama agenda
to take over of my Consitutional rights!Hurumpf!This is
America - and I'm free to use my Common Sense to protect others, or not![sarcasm, off!]
