Default My gun control program.

I propose the following as my gun control platform:

No guns that were not designed by John Browning.

I waive my private parts in the direction of your Glock. Give ma a 1911 or a HI-Power.

You got an AR -15? Whooooooo. I'll take the Browning Automatic Rifle (and a Sherpa to carry it).

My god, your Saiga 12 is ugly. I'll take a combat modified AR 5.

There is no problem involving a firearms situation that John Browning didn't solve.

For some people, gun control is using both hands.

Actually, effective gun control is being able to hit your target
RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES with every shot!

That's not good gun control if you're aiming at their heart.

Bullseye shooters do it one-handed.

Which DA/SA double stack did he put out?
Ultra compact pistol in a serious martial caliber?
Light weight intermediate rifle cartridge for faster mobile combat?
Magnetic field rail gun?
Use of lighter alloys, aluminum, titanium, scandnium, and even polymers.

Browning was genius, and if he had lived today I would be excited to see his solutions to those problems and his utilization of modern manufacturing techniques and materials. I'm sure his contributions would be great. I don't diminish his legacy or his accomplishments, but progress did continue.

But, stick with what you like.

I like my 1911s, but I also like many other pistols that came after. (Sig, Beretta, CZ, and yes, Glock to name a few.)
I'll take a Benelli over an A5.
As far as general issue infantry rifles. The BAR is not really in that class. And as a support weapon, it can't keep up with a belt fed gun with rapid change barrels for portability and sustained firepower like a M240 or M249. Heck, the German MG42 was probably outclassing it in the 1940s, in reality.

It's tempting, but I'm not going there.
