Put together some more ammo over the holidays to kill time. I think I have 200 more rounds of .308 and a new load development test batch for the .300 WM. I think I still have a box of .308 subs around somewhere but I probably won't make more of those until my Form 4 goes through.

I was talking to a coworker about the gun legislation being proposed. I'm still on the fence about it: I don't think a ban is needed but I've always been a proponent of better controls or registration. She was all in favor of an outright ban. However I pointed out that using recent tragedies as a mover for legislation is a knee-jerk reaction. If, over a period of many years and little gun violence, a majority is still in favor of a ban then so be it. I pointed out to her that a similar knee-jerk reaction put us in Iraq so this whole conservatives-vs-liberals thing is pretty hypocritical. Emotion shouldn't cloud rational judgement, isn't that really why we have checks and balances? Instead it seems like our elected officials use them for BS posturing
