Disarming America


#61

Yes indeed, and not offered on others.


#62

Not true, there’s a host of military application weaponry that aren’t covered in your 2nd amendment right.


#63

I know…snicker.


#64

Whose they??? The GOP owns both houses of congress and the White House, let’s see some common sense legislation…


#65

I do, and I want you to know too.

Designed FOR THE BATTLEFIELD!!!

In 1959, ArmaLite sold its rights to the AR-10 and AR-15 to Colt due to financial difficulties.[5] After modifications (most notably, the charging handle was re-located from under the carrying handle like AR-10 to the rear of the receiver),[6] Colt rebranded it the Colt ArmaLite AR-15. Colt marketed the redesigned AR-15 rifle various military services around the world and it was subsequently adopted by the United States military as the M16 Rifle, which went into production in March 1964.[4][7] Colt continued to use the AR-15 trademark for its line of semi-automatic-only rifles marketed to civilian and law-enforcement customers, known as Colt AR-15. The Armalite AR-15 is the parent of a variety of Colt AR-15 & M16 rifle variants.

The senate comprised of 49% democrats prevents gas being passed in a timely manor.


#67

Well considering that the GOP controls everything, it’s up to them to pass common sense legislation that you want passed, and it’s common sense that the democrats will support, so it would be bipartisan. Let’s see if the do nothing congress can lead???

Yes, but not this one!

The AR-15’s journey into the hands of gun enthusiasts and mass murderers alike started in the jungles of Vietnam. It was the 1960s, and the landscape of warfare had changed. In Vietnam, rather than clear-cut enemy lines, combatants were fighting in close combat in city streets and dense forests. Viet Cong guerillas and North Vietnamese soldiers carried AK-47s. The US Army needed its own answer.

Enter the AR-15, developed for military use by Armalite, an arms company from which the gun takes its name (“AR” stands for “Armalite Rifle”).

The rifle combined rapid fire with a lighter weight. It replaced higher-caliber bullets with lighter ammunition that made up in speed what it lacked in size.

Rather than relying on marksmanship, the AR-15 used rapid fire. The lightweight rifle maximized its kill rate by raking enemy soldiers with high-velocity rounds. As the original designers explained, the speed of the impact causes the bullet to tumble after it penetrates tissue, creating catastrophic injuries.

The discussion should be on the failure to not act when people or law enforcement agencies fail to act when informed of serious mental disorders or failing to put someone on a data base when they’re dishonorably discharged for physically assaulting his wife.
This is far more serious than preventing lawabiding people from owning a legal weapon of Their Choice.


#70

That’s certainly where some of the attention needs to be. But there’s far more that can be done.

Last year Oregon passed, with republcan support SB0719… A ‘sensible’ gun control measure that no one should object to. Protection orders became law and Oregon was quick to take off on its collection routes. Of course to all of those who objected to this slippery slope measure, the retort was… ‘We aren’t coming after your guns’…

We now have this bill in hot pursuit:

As the lying anti gun hysterical types try to tell us “Nobody is coming to take your guns away,” they file a ballot measure petition in Oregon that would do just that. The “Promote Public Safety for All Through the Reduction of Assault Weapons and Large Capacity Magazines” initiative has been filed with the Oregon Secretary of State’s office, and will require over 88,000 signatures in order to make it to the 2018 general election ballot. The chief petitioners are Walter John Knutson (aka WJ Mark Knutson), Michael Z. Cahana, and Alcena E. Boozer.

Nah… they aren’t after your guns.


#72

Give the government a finger and they’ll take the arm. Oregon law abiding gun owners give them the finger, but buy KY and be prepared.


#73

Did Trump hurt your butt again?
