Who ever said the AR was not accurate has never trained or fired one. I never really liked the AR or AK for that matter but both have their devoted
followers for many reasons. I know guys who can clover leaf 3 rounds at 100 yards with an AR in several different calibers. If you go to any of the
gun matches and look at who is using what, the majority of what I have seen have been ARs. It really is America's grown up tinker toy with regards to
making comfortable and utilitarian for just about anyone of either sex. But guns are evil so outlaw or make them as cumbersome, limited, and stupid as
you can. My grand Daddy has a bolt action single shot; great gun unless you needed a second shot when the large mean critter charged with intent of
turning you into critter poo.....Unless one lives in Alaska those occurrences are rare in the lower 48 as long as you don't count black bears or
cougars and even then how many city folks have ever been chased by either, much less seen one.....
From another thread that I posted so sorry if you have already read it.
Think about this. You are a violent, homicidal idiot, looking to make a statement, hoping to go from disaffected loser to the most famous person in
your town. One obvious way to accomplish your goal is to kill a whole bunch of people who just piss you off...Didn't give you the respect you
deserved or picked on you etc etc. So where’s the best place to go shoot, bomb, kill all these people?
It is someplace where nobody can shoot back or protect themselves.
Time after time when the stats have been published the crime has gone down if the population is armed. Chicago and Detroit with their no guns allowed
policy have about 1.2 people killed everyday by a gun; a little over 500 each a year. Those tough laws work great on the law abiders but as usual fail
miserably because a certain segment of the population has no respect for laws, you, your life, certainly not your property. The crystal rubbing
Utopian believers are one mugging away from meeting the harsh reality of self reliance and being able to defend themselves. Over the last fifty years,
with only one single exception (Gabby Giffords), every single mass shooting event, with more than four casualties, has happened where guns were
supposedly not allowed...think about it!!!!!
My 100 pound wife is tough but I would hate to see here attacked by a 225 pound man who wanted to hurt or rob her..She is a sneaky little bugger but I
would rather she not be tested.
Colt along with Smith and Wesson figured out that problem along time ago to the point they used to be referred to as "the great equalizers or Peace
Makers". Times have changed; now for the uninformed masses if they see a gun it is time to "Run Away" unless carried by the government enforcers.
With some of the nut jobs carrying illegal weapons that might be a good option for those who can not defend themselves. Unable to run, well sorry
about that maybe you should have been able to defend yourself.
80% of the ones I classify as "nut jobs" are on some form of psychotropic drug and have been for many years. They have been on Zoloft or some
serotonin inhibitor through their formative years, and their decision making process is often flawed. They are usually disaffected, have been bullied,
pushed around, and have a lot of classifiable emotional problems; delusional. They see themselves as victims, and they are usually striking back at
their peer group or society in general. There are even those who start something wanting the cops to shoot them, thus Suicide by cop is now in the
There are no easy answers regardless of TPTB making feel good, "See we are doing something" statements and trying to pass laws that have already
been proven to be ineffectual. I sometimes really do believe there is something in the water that helps brain wash people.
