Actually, Ole Joe made this same comment back in January when he admitted that the AWB would have little if any impact on crime.

They are pushing forward with the AWB for 2 reasons

1. "We're doing something", always popular with politicians. Nevermind if they are doing any good.
2. It's a great distraction from real problems that need solving that are not easily addressed.

See, that's without even getting overly cynical or conspiratorial. It's also typical Obama. Faced with the great financial challenge to ever face this nation, he worries about gun control during a time when violent crime is at its lowest.

Kind of like how he pushed Obamacare at a time when people wanted to know where all the jobs are.

Exactly Correct Tack! That is my stand!

And we do have a culture problem in America. We have the true Americans who live in America and then we have the Socialist /Communists that are here in America! Plain and simple!

Dust! That is a great poster but there are some pictures missing!

I'm not familiar with the M134D?

Light Infantry Arsenal durring my tenure consisted of:

M9 Pistol
M16A2 Rifle
M203 40 MM
M249 SAW
M60 LMG
LAW
AT4
Dragon

...and I think our Delta Companies had Mark 19's on there Hummers but I never got to fire one.

M134D is a Dillon minigun. 7.62x51, I think 4K rnds/min. They go for around $215,000 for civilian purchase.

Somewhat out of my price range. Also, can't find ammo for it.

We can only dream right! Even without the NFA BS they are around $25,000 to manufacture I think.

Must be what Gov. Ventura was swinging around in the first Predator movie... huh?

Nope, never got to play with anything that cool.

Exactly! They'll send their version of the Brown Shirts and the SS to do it, that probably being BATF and/or DHS.
