Richard and Kathy Scheidel are gun enthusiasts originally from Connecticut, who now live in Ohio because the Connecticut gun laws are so strict. They enjoy shooting, attending gun shows, machine gun shoots and exercising their Second Amendment rights.
We’re all experiencing a tough time now in the shooting sports. Idiots like Bloomberg, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer and others are trying to eliminate our shooting sport at all costs.
Some states are improving the sports and unfortunately, others are becoming nanny-states where the State controls everything… especially firearms.

More people are just sitting on their collective rears and sucking on the government tit… and why not? Watch TV all day, collect a check and food stamps and let someone else pay for it. The taxes in Connecticut are incredible now. Everything is more expensive from gas to bread and milk. It’s so bad
