    Can anyone tell me if the shoot scheduled for this Saturday is a registered shoot or not? Can anyone attend or is it just for DFL candidates running for office? What time does it start? Rain or Shine?

    Thanks,
    Dale

    I'm disappointed the club would allow Democratic candidates
    to use the facility. If the opportunity arises, they would
    vote to control any and all guns. As a club member, I won't
    attend. This should be voted on by the membership before it's
    held again.

    Much like Bill Clinton and his famous duck hunt, Democrats often will get media exposure of them with gun related activities hoping not to lose as many votes to the casual gun owners. Mr. Clinton was not exactly known as a pro gun president once he took office, now was he? Democrats only want to ban "bad" guns like AK-47s & AR15s plus handguns of all types. Oh yeah, they might have to get your Remington 1100 & Browning A5 since nobody really needs a deadly, evil, & murdering semi auto.

    To be a DFL supporter, you have to accept that it’s party line is anti gun. Hopefully the group has so much fun at Buffalo that they can change the DFL party’s platform nationwide, but I will not be taking that bet.

    I think I have come to understand that "sportsmen/sportswomen type" "ATA type" and "NRA type" gun owners might be three different schools of thought on what type of gun a person should be able to own, let alone defend one's self or carry.

    I think your a terrific lady. The problem is, I don't believe
    in what the Democratic party believes in. Especially since
    Obama became president. He has this country in a down-hill slide from
    which we probably will never recover. The liberal politicians attending are the same one's who voted against concealed carry and are trying to halt private sales at gun shows. If it was in their power, the only gun you would own would be a single barrel and you would be required to keep it locked at the gun club. Before this event is held again,it should be voted on by all members.By all members, I mean a mailing should go to all asking for approval. My guess is that 80% plus of the members would vote against it. Speaking for myself, if it's
    held again, I will not renew my membership. Incidently, have you
    noticed the bumper sticker on my car? It say's "ARE YOU SORRY YOU VOTED FOR
    OBAMA YET?" Pretty much say's it all.....

    I for one do not believe you are "running a shoot for people
    interested in shooting" This event is all about promoting
    the liberal Democratic agenda. I'm sure the politicians
    attending are hoping to "win the hearts and minds' of attendies.

    I am not going to be there because I do not believe I could
    act civilly in their presence and I don't want to embarrass
    the club.

    While I might differ with Sally on this political outing, it would be foolish of me to think she is anything but a selfless goodwill ambassador to the sport of trapshooting.

    Now your getting my blood pressure up! The $2,000 is not
    as important as defeating the liberal Democratic agenda.
    This event is not about trap shooting- it's only about
    politics! I have no patience for people trying to transform
    America into a Socialist country. In every conversation we
    have at the club concerning politics, you express an anti-
    Democrtic Party position but you allow this to happen. I don't
    feel the club should cancel the event at this late date but
    the full membership should be entitled to vote on this issue next year.
    It's no secret that John Farrel and Sally are committed Democrats
    but they should not be allowed to muscle this event without the
    full membership having their input. I am also disappointed that
    other club members haven't stood up on this forum and taken
    a position on this issue.

    Those of us that were smart enough to get the hell out of the Buffalo Gun Club a few years ago can only sit back and laugh our ass off now. You all deserve each other!!!

    As a board member of BGC I'm very disappointed in the coments above, every body has there right to believe in what they feel is right and wrong ( I believe this is our constuitional right)

    I thought we could have our own opinions and still go out have a great round of trap together, I tried to get this across in a differet venue but there are just to many emotions involved for every body to make a sound decision.

    I would like to ask how many of you are Catholics and how many are lutherns, they do not see eye to eye but we all have agreat time on the trap range together

    It saddens me that all these feelings are coming out against 2 people that support this sport more than anybody else I know.

    I also do not agree with the DFL party, but I will stand next to Sally and John any day of the week. These people are great friends and I will not let any difference of opinions come between us.

    Gentlemen,

    After consulting with my husband I have decided not to play this ts.com game anymore. No good will come of it and I have deleted my posts. My husband, friends and, regrettably, youth I coach have already started being penalized today because I have the audacity to be a Democrat. Apparently working my tail off to be a better shooter, hunter, coach and supporter of all things trapshooting will never be taken into consideration.

    Lew Boyko stated to several tonight the following quote, "Democrats should not be able to shoot at my club." Singular or plural. Why am I the only one who thinks there's something wrong with this?

    Over and out.

    Just might be a good thing to have some nice photos of DFLers shooting trap. If they choose to take an anti-gun stand in the future, the photos might serve as a reminder for them and the world that they themselves participate on occasion. Much like the photo of one of Buffalo's attackers accepting the Gun Club of the Year award on benalf of Buffalo Gun Club. Remember that one Bob? Rich, have you ever had a democrat as a client in your practice? Of course; but that's different right? My wife wasn't very pro-gun until she tried it either. She's now approaching 100,000 registered targets. My Dad is a democrat but what the hell, I love him anyway. This could be a teaching opportunity folks; if you look forward rather than backward.

    Let them see shooting in a positive light. They / we might learn something. There is currently an effort to get a shooting complex built with state funds. Surely having a few DFLers that have had a positive shooting experience cannot hurt that cause.

    We want to grow the sport, don't we? So let's exclude democrats. Roughly 50% of the population. Some hate shooting with women, another 50% of the population that partially overlaps the democratic part of the population. Some don't like shooting with minorities, another substantial part of the population. We could throw in a few religions. Some of us hate skinny folks and people with hair. We end up with us and us isn't growing the sport. Think outside the box a little folks. Thinking outside the box is what makes Buffalo such a great and successful club. It also pisses off a few. Sally and Wally, I applaude your efforts!!!

    When I take to the line, I like to do so with folks that enjoy the sport. EVERYTHING ELSE is a NON-FACTOR.

    I don't have a problem with shooting trap with Democrats. I do
    have a problem with the Buffalo Gun Club (or any other gun club)
    using the facility to raise money for the Democratic Party. I believe
    the vast majority of folks who support the shooting sports are
    not Democrats and do not believe in what the Democratic Party espouses.
    As you well know, the Democratic Party believes in growing the government
    in size and power. It believes in more social programs which result
    in higher taxes. It believes in government health care. Being raised in
    Canada, you know how well that works there. They do not support the military
    contrary to what they would have us believe. As a Marine, I do not
    support Gays in the military. And yes, I will shoot trap with Gays. I
    just don't want to shower with them. Maybe the club should pass a
    resolution that says; the facility cannot be used to raise funds for any political party. John Podergois

    The Dems have a loser in gun control. They know that. So it behooves 2nd amendment folks to get as many new Dems locked in as believers as we can. But Dayton showed his stripes when he left town over internet gossip. He may win the top job in MN, but he will take MN further down the road to fiscal destruction... You see... The key here is that the Dems want Obama to keep using "stimulus" funds to bail out the state deficit and placate the union membership a bit longer.

    If any of you want some sanity back in government, vote in a congress that sees that 2 or 300 million* stimulus left as necessary to be NOT used.

    I am anything but anti-union, but using my money to pad their pensions rather than adjusting as the rest of us are doing, is just criminal. Shame on the Dems for stealing my money to give it to greedy unions.

    *Billion was what I meant. MN is 5 Billion in the red.

    Hey MIA, how are you doing.

    I stopped by the Buffalo Gun Club around 11:00 A.M. Looked like a nice turn
    out of shotgun toten Democrats. I saw MTA Secratary Sally Stevens outside of the club house. Sally asked me not to be disrespectfull. I told Sally I just
    stopped in the see how it was going. Sally again said, I could stay but not
    to be disrespectfull. I asked Sally how taunting a Minnesota Viet Nam Vertram on Trapshooters.com about seeing black helecopters in the air, was also not disrespectfull. I then stopped by the club house and found BGC
    BOD, John Ferrell handling the shooters sign ups.

    I extended my hand to John Ferrell for a good morning handshake, John really
    did not want to shake hands, it was like shaking hands with a "wet dish rag"
    as my mother used to say.

    John Ferrell said that I "Lew D.Boyko" stepped over the line when I put
    "ABOUT THE DFL SHOOT@ BUFFALO GUN CLUB" on Trapshootes.com. I told John it
    was not me but someone called AR15 or Dale and I have no idea who that even
    is. Trapshooters.com was how I first heard that the Buffalo Gun Club
    was allowing this DFL trap shoot to take place.

    Parking lot was pertty full, roughy 35 cars. I did not see any
    DFL candidate, but will have to swing by BGC later and have a look see.

    Weather was cloudy, damp but the sun is to be out later today.

    QUESTION: John Ferrell is mad that someone put "ABOUT THE DFL SHOOT@ BUFFALO GUN CLUB" on Trapshooters.com. Well, how about Freedom of Speech, are we going
    to be denied that also.

    I believe the profits go to the candidates or the Minnesota
    DFL party.

    I just got back from the Oakdale Gun Club and the "Gun Club Exchange" meeting hosted there. It was a very valuable exposition of the Range Protection Act and the various things gun clubs can do to fulfill one of their responsibilities, namely, to survive into the future.

    One of the main topics was politics and how to secure and use the political power the 50,000 (or so) gun club members have by virtue of their numbers. Gun clubs have invited various politicians - from township on up - to their facilities and the outcomes have been very positive.

    I cannot understand how anyone can oppose exposing politicians to trapshooting in a positive atmosphere. We would be better off if every gun club did it. Buffalo is doing the right thing - it's a proven route to the seats of power.
