That's incredibly idiotic. But, whatever.

patrol rifles

LOL. When a sniveling citizen wants one they're "military-style assault weapons." When cops want them they're "patrol rifles." Bunch of Orwellian horseshiat.

"The new guns will ultimately be paid for by the officers themselves who are taking a deduction in their paychecks to make this happen."

Something smells fishy about that.

/ the reason they need them is all the delusional f*ckwits who rush out to buy them every time they think their precious right to blow the f*ck out of things is threatened

In light of all the horrible arsons last summer, maybe flame throwers in the trunk would be a good call too.

AR-15s put the neighborhood dogs down quickly.  It's what every LEO needs.

A rifle that fires 5.56mm, even in single-shot iterations, with a 30-round clip? No f*cking need in the world that a beat cop needs that sh*t.

I'd like to prohibit them from even being allowed to buy surplus military equipment.

This is ridiculous.

Because that is entirely accurate. The AR-15 is designed to put down human beings in short fashion. That is exactly what it was designed for.

Your point?

We're already well on our way to 3rd world country status.  Why not arm the police like we are and just cut to the chase?
 
2013-01-25 12:42:25 AM

NewportBarGuy: Your point?


I thought so, <b>Frank</b>. There is nothing defensible about the AR-15, AK-47, or any other weapon designed primarily for the killing of human beings. "But, it's only single-shot!" Yeah. Wow. You can get the people who know nothing about guns to scratch their head at that, not those who know the weapon.

Three-shot burst vs. no-three-shot-burst... There is no such thing as a fully automatic M4 that is issued to combat MOS in the armed forces that are not SOCOM.

The argument about "machine gun"... total bullsh*t. It's not a "machine gun". SAWs fill that role.

Just yield and move on.

You don't own an AR-15.

FEAR them? What the f*ck is the matter with you? They are combat rifles. They are designed to kill people. That is a simple fact. Just because you choose to ignore their design purpose, does not make you any less stupid for asserting their noble qualities.

If you need a rifle with a 30 round clip to go hunting, there are two reasons why:

1) You are a sh*t shot.
2) You harbor fantasies of a world collapse, invest in gold, listen to Glenn Beck, and want to overthrow they tyrannical government,

In short, idiotic.

If AR-15s are combat rifles, how come the military uses M-16s and polices use AR-15s?

NewportBarGuy: They are designed to kill people.


Most guns are. I mean, I can't name a gun designed to shoot hugs and kisses at hundreds of feet per second. Can you?

NewportBarGuy: If you need a rifle with a 30 round clip to go hunting, there are two reasons why:

1) You are a sh*t shot.


Well, most people that go hunting don't use an AR-15 with 30 round clip magazine, as it's against the law (varies state by state). Although there are high volume hunts, such as varmint hunting, in which it's legal and useful to use a 30 round clip magazine

NewportBarGuy: 2) You harbor fantasies of a world collapse, invest in gold, listen to Glenn Beck, and want to overthrow they tyrannical government,


Or it's fun to shoot, a good home defense weapon, or any other legal uses

Actually, I can. So can you. Every other rifle not designed with express intent for use in an armed force.

Perhaps you fail to see the distinction.

Every BULLET kills. Every rifle is designed for a purpose.

Keep playing semantics. It's all you have.

The semantics and vernacular of the debate, while pedantic at times, serve to illustrate who can articulate what they want to ban, and why. As they should be well versed on the topic, lest the come off sounding somewhat as stupid as say, ol' legitimate-rape Todd Aiken. Now I know you know what you are talking about regarding guns, and I respect your educated opinions even though I don't share them. But frankly, I'm sick of the ignorance that we see in these debates.

I don't even share my own opinions. I would like to keep my AR-15, but Cletus here is making absurd arguments. I resign myself to the lowest point, and am surprised when they don't come knocking at my door.

I know that I'll be able to keep what I own currently. I remember, and the politicians remember what happened the last time they 'took' guns. This is a ridiculous argument.

All sales, private and public should be run through NICS. If they do just that, I'm happy. Any responsible gun owner should want that,

2013-01-25 01:31:27 AM

fusillade762: The ineffectiveness of the pistol rounds and shotgun pellets in penetrating the robbers' body armor led to a trend in the United States toward arming selected police patrol officers with semi-automatic 5.56 mm AR-15 type rifles.[16] Seven months after the incident, the Department of Defense gave 600 surplus M16s to the LAPD, which were issued to each patrol sergeant;[32] other cities, such as Miami, also moved to supply patrol officers, not just SWAT teams, with heavier firepower.[33]



As I've said. "Selected".... Your point? You had one?
