Rozinante: Therion: Considering that those are non-reuseable empty plastic tubes that used to sell in surplus stores for under $100, getting $200 from morans who think they are dangerous weapons is a great deal.They are reusable. Some of your more budget-minded armies around the world reload M-72s once or twice before scrapping them. It's not like you can just go out and buy a case of rounds though.
El Freak: Launch Code: [i1253.photobucket.com image 300x193]If a thug/tard/jilted lover bashes in someone's skull with a baseball bat, that makes the bat an assault weapon. I blame Americas favorite pastime. All bats should be wiffel, lets get the teachers out there protesting MLB.Guns are built specifically to kill things. That's all they're for. Cars and baseball bats aren't.I'm honestly on the fence about this issue, but this "HURR DURR OTHER THINGS KILL PEOPLE TOO!! LET'S BAN THEM HURR" talking point is unbelievably retarded.
Giltric: So someone turned in a LAW or AT4 tube?Thats almost as scary as a 3 foot section of PVC pipe with a bayonet lug.
mbillips: M-14 is misclassified as an assault rifle. It's a select-fire battle rifle, because of the conventional stock and the full-size cartridge.I don't know anyone who ever fired an M-14 on full-auto. Considering how much it kicks normally, I'd hate to try it.
bigwf2007: Doesn't any media outlet in the nation have anyone on staff who served in the military or who even attends gun shows? It would save them from embarrassing themselves like this.
TheOther: Therion: Considering that those are non-reuseable empty plastic tubes that used to sell in surplus stores for under $100, getting $200 from morans who think they are dangerous weapons is a great deal.Free Market in action.

chasd00: You know, I'm no fan of gun control at all (own several, including an omgscary AR-15) but if folks were really serious about it they'd ban ammunition sales to anyone except people licensed to purchase ammunition. Then make the license impossibly expensive and complicated to get./justsaying
MythDragon: so I can go buy a cheap hi point .380, for $130, make a stock out of scrap wood and bailing wire, and trade it in as an 'assault weapon' for $70 profit?
durbnpoisn: I thought it was pretty well established in the thread a couple of days ago that a rocket launcher pretty munch consists of a tube with a trigger. It's not the slightest bit dangerous without an actual rocket propelled grenade to fire from it. And I haven't seen that anyone turned in one of those.
piratetech: Notice they never show you a good picture of the front and back of the "rocket launcher". Maybe because then you would see that there is no rocket in them and what you have is the discarded metal tube that is not reusable to fire rockets out of and NOT a live ready to fire rocket
bump: Like it or not, it is part of our 2nd amendment rights. Don't like it? ... be prepared to re-right the constitution.
