Next thing, they will limit or deny the purchase of Lego blocks. Would not surprise me in this day and age. May someday have to submit plans and get Lego designs approved and then later inspected before our kids can play with them.

The united nations treaties in place, and several waiting in the wings, do not allow military arms to be owned by the citizens.

That is ultimately what this current gun grab is all about.

Well DC, I did not grow up saluting the flag of the united nations, and at 56, it is a bit late to start now. DC, how about you roll up that UN flag on the poll and stick it up your A%%!

My heritage in this country did not fight and die fir every square inch of this land, for you buffoons in DC to turn it all over to the David Rockerfilar types and turn me into a subject of a world power outside my US Constituition.

How about you guys in DC announce a date to come get all our ARs and darrangers, and shotguns, and 22's, and axe handles and we will have them ready for you! !!!!

Yeah that's really what it is. Once they take the guns on Cali, the Chinese will invade and set up bases there. I hope all the best for you guys in Cali. But you gotta get the heck out of dodge. Diane-gun grabber nut-Feinstein is going to grown horns and try to take them. W won't let that happen to any other state. IMHO, California WILL ban them soon.

Is David Rockefeller a Bilderburger, an Illuminati, a Jew, or a free Mason???? ( or all of the above?) I keep forgetting.

And here I thought he was just a banker! Silly me!

Most of the AR series sporting rifles have short barrels, adjustable stocks and minimal recoil. They are easier to control than a pistol and easier to train on. With proper loads it is probably one of the best home defense weapons available. Being adjustable it will fit almost any stature and the low recoil makes easy on recoil sensitive people. The 55 grain standard military load actually has less penetration through walls than a 9mm at close range. My wife has a S&W 15-22 and loves it. It has exactly the same ergonomics and functions as an AR. She can pick up the AR and be proficient with it. It would just be heavier with a little more recoil and she can handle it. She has less chance of missing with the AR even though she does pretty well with her 9mm.

I have AR platform weapons for several reasons.
(1) Because I can!
(2) It's a great hunting rifle for varmints/feral hogs/deer.
(3) They are simple to build/take down/clean.
(4) You can shoot multiple calibers with the same platform-just swap uppers/magazine's with certain calibers.
Those are my fun reasons to own an AR15/AR10 platform rifle.

The real reason I have these weapons and high capacity magazines-
So I can defend myself,my property,my family,my friends from a government that is trying to rule what I do or have the ability to do as a law abiding adult citizen of the United States of America.
If these asshat's in D.C. think they can take my rights away from what the original Bill of Rights/Constitution give every law abiding citizen,then they are declaring war on me,and I will fight everyone that tries to take those rights.
