When Progressives Exploit School Shootings

Well if I were a anti gun person that hated American firearm owner nothing is wrong with that .
Consider this our Constitution limits what federal troops can do on American soil .
If a congress decided to do an Australia buy back in America the armed forces may or may not go along with a order to confiscate the weapons .
If we had UN forces stationed in America to monitor the transfers of conventional weapons problem solved !

The U.S. should never be subservient to the U.N. or any other Subversive Organization.

AR 15 is designed for the battlefield???

What battlefield were you on where there were AR 15’s??


#85

It’s called cooperation. The UN is a body comprised of its member states. They all cooperate as it benefits each. No loss of sovereignty. That’s just mythical.


#86

But that’s not how it was carried out in Australia.


#87

Australia is surrounded by water.

Not anti gun, just opposed to weapons that were created for the battlefield being sold to the civilian population even with the dropped SF feature.

The ArmaLite AR-15 was a select-fire, air-cooled, gas-operated, magazine-fed assault rifle manufactured in the United States between 1959 and 1964. Designed by American gun manufacturer ArmaLite in 1956, it was based on its AR-10 rifle. The ArmaLite AR-15 was designed to be a lightweight assault rifle and to fire a new high-velocity, lightweight, small-caliber cartridge to allow the infantrymen to carry more ammunition.[4] The rifle was not available for civilian use.

The AR in AR 15 Stands for ArmaLite

Before we dive into the history of the modern AR 15 Rifle, we need to look the “AR” part. AR does not stand for Assault Rifle. Or Automatic Rearming. Or even Apoplectic Ruin. It is a product naming convention from the company that invented it, ArmaLite. In fact, there were a number of rifles with “AR” names, like the AR-1, AR-5, AR-7, AR-10, AR-16 and AR-17.

Armalite AR 15 is like saying armalite armalite 15 which is certainly repetitive and incorrect.

1959
ArmaLite licenses both the AR-10 and AR 15 designs to Colt Firearms.

Colt Firearms sells the first AR 15 rifles to the Federation of Malaya, later to become known as Malaysia. No war here.

1961
Eugene Stoner leaves ArmaLite to serve as a consultant to Colt Firearms. At this point, ArmaLite was out of the AR-15 business – for the time being. The United States Air Force tests the AR 15 Rifle and purchases 8,500 rifles.

1963
The Air Force standardizes the AR 15 and designates the rifle M-16.
85,000 rifles are purchased by the Air Force. Also this year, the US Army purchases 85,000 more M-16 rifles.

1965
By this time, the M-16 had become the military’s primary service rifle, with over 300,000 purchased from Colt, now known as Colt’s Inc., Firearms Division.

1988
Colt loses the government contract to supply M-16 rifles to the military.

1989
Jim Glazier and Karl Lewis of Lewis Machine and Tool Company (LMT), operating a new entity called Eagle Arms, begin producing complete AR-15 rifles for the consumer market. By this time, many of the earlier AR 15 Rifle related patents had expired, thereby opening up the market for complete AR-15 type rifles.

1963 is the pivotal year where the AR15 is renamed the M16.

Some additional information:
While hard to differentiate by sight, t he AR-15 and M16 platform are vastly different as semi-automatic vs. fully automatic. Incompatible internal components, so that the parts would not be interchangeable and allow civilians to convert their AR-15 rifles to fully automatic weapons, were installed at the behest of the US Dept of Tobacco, Alcohol and Firearms.

The AR15 produced today isn’t the same rifle as the original fully automatic AR15 renamed the M16 built by Colt. The parts are not interchangeable.

As a point of interest Armalite licensed the AR15/M16 to Colt in 1959. Armalite did not leave the AR15/M16 business until 1961.

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.
There are hundreds of companies making the AR15 toady

You are a parrot just repeating dogma !











You are not a shooter you Know less then nothing about what you are talking about !
A picture may where words fail ALL of the pictures are of former military fire arms !
By your standards we would have nothing to defend our self’s or family with .

Well, stated directly or not… isn’t that really the point.

The National Agreement on Firearms all but prohibited automatic and semiautomatic assault rifles, stiffened licensing and ownership rules, and instituted a temporary gun buyback program that took some 650,000 assault weapons (about one-sixth of the national stock) out of public circulation. Among other things, the law also required licensees to demonstrate a “genuine need” for a particular type of gun and take a firearm safety course.

University of Melbourne researchers Wang-Sheng Lee and Sandy Suardi concluded their 2008 report on the matter with the statement, “There is little evidence to suggest that [the Australian mandatory gun-buyback program] had any significant effects on firearm homicides.”

“Although gun buybacks appear to be a logical and sensible policy that helps to placate the public’s fears,” the reported continued, “the evidence so far suggests that in the Australian context, the high expenditure incurred to fund the 1996 gun buyback has not translated into any tangible reductions in terms of firearm deaths.”

The Australian gun-homicide rate had already been quite low and had been steadily falling in the 15 years prior to the Port Arthur massacre. And while the mandatory buyback program did appear to reduce the rate of accidental firearm deaths, Baker and McPhedran found that “the gun buy-back and restrictive legislative changes had no influence on firearm homicide in Australia.”

Gun confiscation is not happening in the United States any time soon. But let’s suppose it did. How would it work? Australia’s program netted, at the low end, 650,000 guns, and at the high end, a million. That was approximately a fifth to a third of Australian firearms. There are about as many guns in America as there are people: 310 million of both in 2009. A fifth to a third would be between 60 and 105 million guns. To achieve in America what was done in Australia, in other words, the government would have to confiscate as many as 105 million firearms.

And an American mandatory gun-confiscation program — in addition to being unconstitutional — would be extraordinarily coercive, and perhaps even violent.

There is no other way around it: The mandatory confiscation of the American citizenry’s guns would involve tens of thousands of heavily armed federal agents going door-to-door to demand of millions of Americans that they surrender their guns.

DNC Fundraises Off Florida Shooting


The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is using Wednesday’s mass shooting that left 17 people dead to ask for campaign donations.

The DNC on Thursday sent out an emotional email, signed by DNC chair Tom Perez, asking supporters to sign a petition telling Congress that “it’s past time to take action to address our country’s gun violence epidemic.”
Anyone who signs the petition, which requires giving the DNC your email address and zip code, is re-directed to a donation page asking for money to “help Democrats take on the gun lobby.”


Perez’s email relies on heavy, emotional language to draw in supporters. “Yesterday afternoon, a 19-year-old with a weapon of war walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and opened fire, killing 17 people and injuring many others,” Perez writes.

“We have seen this happen too many times. This is not normal. This is not acceptable. This is not inevitable. It’s long past time for our leaders to stop pretending we are helpless in the face of such tragedy.”
In his email, Perez claims the NRA is blocking policies that he says would have prevented Wednesday’s shooting — even though it’s unclear what effect, if any, those policies would have had. (The shooter, Nikolaus Cruz, bought his gun legally and passed a background check.) But that attack on the NRA sets up the request for money at the donation page.

“We’re counting on you to help take on the gun lobby and elect Democrats who have the courage to address the epidemic of gun violence,” the page states. “Chip in now.”

You cannot have a civil conversation with him.

He posts garbage then you post facts to clean it up.

And he then reposts the same garbage.
