    i can

    evidently, this is finally the year in which only 49% of the population will pay taxes to support the other 51% which will receive assistance therefrom. however, the average government assistance payout is only $26,000 annually. that's obviously not an income which will subsidize a serious recreational shooting regime with any regularity. how can we expect our sport to grow as government continues to under fund government assistance payouts? good luck with it

    45 Percent of the people in America pays taxes, the other 55% are either illegal draing the social security system or conning the Government and are on Welfare, or high paid Politicians ... This is some of the Changes Obama was talking about, "Yes" he can ... Talk about a Political PUKE, he is it in Spades, (no pun intended) ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    quartering get with the program. You need to move to Illinois and set a goal of becoming beyond average. Here our welfare system provides for health care, link welfare debit cards meant for food but easy to trade for booze and drugs (maybe even shells with the right clerk at the checkout), along with regular U.S.D.A. food stamps.

    If you are lucky enough have a daughter she needs to be convinced to have as many children as possible. Then you have her declared incompetent by the state to raise the children. You step in as the grandparent and provide foster care for her children all on the state dime. You do not have to be a U.S citizen to get these benefits. Plus we provide free cel phones and 60 free minutes monthly service for our welfare participants.

    You could shoot a lot of trap if you did not have to pay for health care or health insurance, food, and your cel phone.

    How do you expect a sport to grow when the government is trying to ban its components?

    Lead is a prime example, wad's are a petroleum product(Watch for them to go up).

    What gulls me is there are still firearm owners who STILL vote democrat!!

    The party that "Actively" tries to take firearms away from you, let alone take our freedoms away!!

    Lead is an NON issue, but watch, there will be firearm owners who will swallow "hook, line and sinker" the weird science that is behind it!

    I'll say it again, you have to go back to the beginning. When steel shot was being debated, the argument used to force the industry and sportsman to it, was FLAWED! It wasn't even about weird science!

    The Federal government was even against it at the very beginning!!

    But guess what, WE lost!

    it is to me. i'm paying taxes to support the other, able bodied 51% who prefer to live on $26k government assistance, scratch that out: my assistance, as to get out and get a job. then we bemoan declining participation in the shooting sports. 25% of my income is a lot of my money which i would much prefer to dispose of by my shooting it up as opposed to it being redistributed by the government to reward the indolence of others. good luck with it

    It's quite possible no one but the very elite will be shooting, (clay targets that is} in the very near future.

    $40 shot and $5 gas. I may not be "elite", but I've been called "special"!

    Obama has the numbers and the Dems are counting the votes. We're screwed. Four more years! All we can do to protect ourselves is to get as many fiscally responsible municipal, county, state and US reps and senators in against this Communist/socialist/racist machine of Obama's
