An AR-15 wasn't USED in the Orlando massacre. It was a Sig Sauer MCX Carbine.

bearingarms.com...

So....here we are.

Question, will Sig Sauer Semi Autos now be added to the list? Or are we asking for ALL "AR" type weapons to be added? I understand they look scary, black and all, but it's a design characteristic....of which literally HUNDREDS of the most popular models all across the gun manufacturing spectrum are sold.

Browse the Colt catalog.... www.colt.com...
Browse the Smith & Wesson catalog....LINK

Here's the Sig Sauer catalog, rifle page www.sigsauer.com...

Here's the Heckler & Koch catalog or rifles, one of the TOP brands...hk-usa.com...

Go ahead, take a look. Now....are we going to ask for a ban on ALL those rifles, all those makers, all those types of rifles? Many of them are just as deadly, just as modular, just as fast, just as capable of killing LOTS of people...so are handguns.

If they are all called "AR" rifles, where do we stop?

I highly suggest that those of you who use the term 'assault rifle' and 'AR-15' at every turn, and have family and friends, that also do...considering you are probably part of a GROUP THINK apparatus....to please share this with them so that you can be EDUCATED on the matter.

Thank You

Dude I love guns, I have an AR and an AK, a handful of 33 rounders for my Glocks and I think my gun total is 15 right now.

This is a stupid argument. Would you honestly have identified that gun as something other than an AR-15 if you saw a picture of it last week? I wouldn't have. I would have said it looked like an AR15 with fancy furniture.

I don't know what to call my AK-47. I know it's not an AK-47, is it an AK-74? Beats me.

Why own such stupid toys? What realistic reason do you have for needing to possess them.

You collect that # and then some maniac steals it from you then what?

Sorry.

Time to destroy your idiotic killing machines. This is not Beirut. You morons have perverted the constitution to allow this carry-on for way too long. Whoop-de-feckin-do for you and your stupid ass collection of guns. Nothing to be proud of.

Your automatic weapon ownership is a direct threat to my family and our peace of mind. Knowing you have that # keeps me awake at night.

Knee-jerk, short-sighted, small-minded reactions to Orlando. There are about as many people murdered EVERY DAY in the USA by people with NON-AR15 guns, as were murdered in Orlando.

Did that just happen?

You speak your mind like your free to do so? What realistic reason do you feel the need to do so?

You say something someone doesn't like and they can shut you up by any means necessary?

Sorry.

Time to keep your mouth shut, this is not America! You morons have perverted the constitution to allow this carry-on for way too long. La-di-fricken-da for you and your stupid free thoughts and speech. Nothing to be proud of.

You having those thoughts and speaking on it, is a threat to my family and piece of mind. Knowing you think keeps me up at night.

See how ridiculous I sound?

Bet your neighbor has a sign in front:
This property protected by Smith and Wesson. Go next door . The liberal that lives there does not believe in self defense.

Constitution says you are wrong. we live by the exact wording of the second. id dont have restrictions on what we can have. it dont mention how we are to carry them either. So sorry if you are kept up at night due to us owning weapons. Thats your problem not mine.

The "AR" in all ArmaLite pattern firearms simply stands for "ArmaLite Rifle"

⬆️ Quote from Wikipedia. I had to look it up, because I forgot what the AR stood for. I knew it didn't stand for "assault rifle", that wording has always made me picture someone beating someone over the head with a rifle...🙄

Beirut used to be nicer then most cities in America. Like you said look at it now.

www.city-journal.org...

I mean It looks like Detroit.

The only example I know of why one would need an AK, are the Koreans who protected their store from rioters in la. Hopefully one will never have to use them, but it's better to have and not use, then need and not have. That's just common sense

I saw this coming long ago after Clinton's gun ban ended..... I was raised up in a era where guns looked like something out of a western movie.

Then all of the sudden mid 2000's gun stores started looking like military armories. I was like WTF..... then after seeing the military like youtube vids of civilians modifying their black toys, I knew they will be banned again.

The assault rifle look gives off a war like mentality to these gun nutter idiots.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for the 2nd and think Obama probably took an oath the Qur'an....

But after seeing the mentality of these gun nuts over the years, I say good riddance to their black toys....

Or it could be that the platform allows for customization to make the rifle function in a manner that meets your demands. Or it could be it's ergonomically superior to a traditional rifle stock for shooting sports and still hunting (which is opposite of what it actually is....idk why).

Arms race anyone?
Who has the bigger gun?

My neighbor has a gun, so I need two guns! It's an issue that only gets a quick fix.

true. The M16/AR15 was specially designed in the 60's,not only to use cheaper/smaller ammo,but also to WOUND,not kill the enemy! If a enemy gets shot,wounded,it will take 2 guys to carry him,2 guys to carry his gear,so you effectively put out 5 guys with 1 wound.Thats why in Vietnam,they were referred to as "poodle shooters",as thats about the biggest thing they could easily kill!

Your automatic weapon ownership


It would help if you actually had any idea what you were arguing against.

Go learn about guns, come back after after 3 hours of research and tell me how an AR-15 or variant or similar is this terrible thing. You won't if you read.

Still hunting looks military and causes mental illness? Is there any proof of that?

Weird. Someone just posted that what the US government is doing with their gun control wank is death by a thousand cuts of the 2nd anendment that will eventually lead to complete ban on all guns unless heavily government regulated on an individual level.
