I am a conservative also and believe that most of our Constitution is under assault. 2A is our last line of defense. And we
continue to allow the chipping away of that right because it sounds reasonable in application. A few more reasonable changes and there wont be a second amendment. For that matter it's the same with the first amendment now and the forth is all but gone. NO a Ruger 10/22 is not an assault weapon of any kind..
