    PLEASE NOTE: I AM PRO AR-15 AND PRO GUN. I want some reasons, good, why we need AR-15's. I can think of a few with the LA riots and the Korean merchants. I wanted to get a thread here and see your thoughts on why we need them.

    :D True! Today I was speaking with someone and they think that automatics are legal. Now I am going to put this out there: should we be able to own automatic weapons? I think no unless there are EXTREME background and physiological checks. I see nothing wrong at all with semi-autos.

    That does get me thinking that we actually need them to match our military. I can see your point. I have never fired a full auto so I can not really put input in but I have seen them fired and they look very nice!

    I like using mine for coyote control, and plinking. But it best purpose is to help defend this country from emenies, both domestic and foreign.

    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    Plinking is very fun. Especially with a ruger 10/22. The thing I don't understand is what is wrong with people. All of our fore fathers that wrote the constitution have said that if the government takes the guns, it will get ugly fast. Do the sheeple not realize this? Why do they continue to ignore the facts. Hitler took the guns, Stalin took the guns and Mao took the guns. CNN just dumbs down all the idiots who watch it and turns them into government loving, brainless watermelons.

    Short answer: Why not?

    Less short answer: Because my M1a cannot get All the attention!

    Why should I own a lot of things? Why must I justify anything that doesn't infringe on others rights?

    It maybe a surprise but my ar-15 has never gone on a rampage. It lives in a stable and loving household.

    To anyone that expects you to justify owning one, most arguments will fall flat because they are OK with government intrusion in their lives.

    WE SHOULD SAY: "Your claim that 'they're only for killing people' is imprecise. A gas chamber or electric chair is designed for killing people, and these devices obviously serve different functions than guns. To be precise, a high capacity military-type rifle or handgun is designed for CONFLICT. When I need to protect myself and my freedom, I want the most reliable, most durable, highest capacity weapon possible. The only thing hunting and target shooting have to do with freedom is that they're good practice."
    Check out John Ross "give it to them straight" This guy could talk the pope into carrying.

    We don't need one, I choose to have 5 of them.

    A little something called the Second Amendment.

    December 15, 1791

    A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    The pope resigned so he could move to Texas.

    Very good points Muzzy! It's none of your business why I own what I own. This society is sick. Why do you have more than 2 pairs of shoes?

    I hate all these CNN people that say "So your solution is to arm everyone in America with an AR-15?"

    Well it's not that we need them, it's that we can buy them if we want. Like you said, you CHOOSE to have them. Have you ever done anything illegal with them? Probably not. So why don't they leave us the hell alone...

    I have no use for Full Auto. If you want one I think you should be able to own one. But semi is fine for me. As for why...take a look at SYria. Those people are having a tough time and they have semi auto as well as auto. Our idiot Vice President thinks all we need is a double barrel shotgun. Imagine if 50years from now our children were in a situation like Syria. How would that be if they had to go up against full auto fire with a two shot shotgun? The second amendment is not about hunting. It is not about self defense either. It is about have to defend ourselves from a dictatorship! That is not the job of a side by side 12 gauge!
