But they won't take money from titty bars.

My mother would call that a sin.
 
2013-03-12 09:15:16 PM
I don't see any problem either. Of course, I recognize that it's just a rifle, and that it's the user and not the machine that dictates the behavior.
 
2013-03-12 09:17:53 PM
Assault rifles are fully-automatic weapons, you retard.  This is not an assault rifle.
 
2013-03-12 09:25:06 PM
Everybody knows that you are far past "assault" once you start shooting.

So long as they dont let some FPS gamer nerd get his hands on it.

When did we become a nation of pants-wetting sissy's who are scared of anything black and/or gun-shaped?

So this means and illegal immigrant is automatically president, and Obama is forced rob our houses to pay for every minority's college, right?

Came here to say this. Most military style firearms have killed thousands if not more in wars and people don't point that out every time one of them changes hands. If they outlawed sensationalism, the media would have to actually work to get viewers.

Unless you're a collector, every rifle is going to be "similar" to every other rifle ever.
 
2013-03-12 09:28:17 PM
They're going to make a killing.
 
2013-03-12 09:29:00 PM
They also pee with the same organ Glenn Beck used to rape and murder a hooker in vegas.
 
2013-03-12 09:29:13 PM
Yes, sublibtard, very similar to  the rifle used at Sandy Hook. Except that it isn't being wielded illegally by someone farked in the head.
 
2013-03-12 09:29:13 PM
Not an assault rifle. Nor was the firearm used at Sandy Hook. Less than 2% of all murders in the US are committed with rifles (and far from all of those with AR-15's). There is basically no better choice for home defense than an AR-15. If the kids benefit and nobody is harmed, then what is the problem exactly?

Also, interesting related recent development, the Department of Homeland Security just ordered 7000 AR-15s with 30 round magazines and they very specifically referred to them as Personal Defense Weapons. So one of the few departments of the federal government actually qualified to talk about firearms considers them appropriate for personal defense.

It's cool. Gun enthusiasts usually shoot their families anyway.

They could raffle off a ticket on a cruise liner very similar to the Titanic that killed 1500 people in the North Atlantic

2013-03-12 09:34:42 PM
o.k. subby.... the "problem" is that it looks sorta, kinda, maybe like a gun that was used in a crime somewhere else?

Why, exactly is this a problem for another group of people in another place and time? We don't demonize every bartender in town every time someone gets a DUI? Why should every gun owner be demonized for the actions of one lunatic?

The more liberals persist in acting like gun owners are trafficking in kiddie pr0n and ought to be ashamed of themselves and go hide in the basement; the sillier and less relevant you become.

"Charidy Butcher"?
 
2013-03-12 09:35:50 PM
Worse, the rifle fires ammunition loaded with a propellant exactly like the propellant in the ammunition used to kill twenty children at Sandy Hook.

/Rumour is that the ammunition that it fires may be made using the same type of metal, too.

It is equally cool, that gunophobes tend to die before they breed also, having a genetic disposition that turns mates away.

I guess that is why the population stays fairly balanced on the issue.

You pants-shiatting anti-gun tards have built a hell of a soapbox on those 26 graves.

Local church raffles off the exact same model car that was involved in a multiple fatality drunk driving accident.  Queue outrage.
 
2013-03-12 09:40:36 PM
The real horror here is that the money that they raise will be used to train children how to effectively hit things with blunt objects.

TEACHING CHILDREN TO HIT THINGS WITH BLUNT OBJECTS.

You know, things similar to hammers, clubs, and baseball bats.

Blunt objects were used to murder 496 people in 2011 - including children - that's 1.5 times as many people as were murdered with ALL rifles combined - including "Assault Rifles".

That's right, for every 10 people murdered with rifles, 15 were murdered with blunt objects similar to baseball bats.

Worse still, these "Assault Bats" can be bought at virtually any variety or sporting goods store, with NO background check, NO waiting period, and NO age restriction - if a child is old enough to lay money on the counter, he or she can walk out with one of these killing machines - no questions asked.

Isn't it time we had a rational discussion about Little League?

Stop the madness.

Write your Congressmen, people.

President Merkin Muffley: arentol: There is basically no better choice for home defense than an AR-15.

Of course there are better choices, depending on the home in question and other factors. But it's no one's business if you want to own one to defend your home or just because you like the way the light bounces off the muzzle at dawn.

(I live in a subdivision so I wouldn't dream of needing one to "defend the home" but down on the farm they are an ideal tool.)

Let me sum up this entire thread.

People who hate guns, bait people that like guns. The word penis will be flung to both sides, and everyone is a racist, facist, ect, ect.

The problem is you are taking what is supposed to be the scapegoat for all of our nations suffering and casting it in a positive light.
That ruins the rest of the narrative.

Tell me more about this great and wonderful agency!

Wait, I thought they came out and said the "assault rifle" was in the trunk of the car and he just used pistols for all the killing.

If the little league team raffled off baseball bats there are survivors of those victems too.

We're all just feeding the attention whores.

Oh good, another gun thread. Haven't had one of those for almost 12 hours.

I'm more concerned about unregulated raffles. The commissioner's brother-in-law will probably win it.

Meh, I am from an area where it is popular to 'buy a truck get a gun' dealership promotions and where we have derbies where we shoot rockchucks and they raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for rural schools (the folks that shoot the largest ones win rifles).

/Pretty much SOP here

Gods, I hope you're trolling. Many of the gun owners I know are liberals. I don't understand this whole "libs hate guns WHARGARBLE!!!" BS going on with some people. Hell, the libbiest lib I know has a gun collection that would make the Army Rangers jealous.

The problem isn't the weapon or the political affiliation of the person wielding it or any related bad or not very useful ideas about the weapon. It is the outright refusal of many to take simple, common sense steps to ensure that complete idiots and crazy people do not have easy access to any kind of weapon. Classes and testing should be required before being permitted to possess ANY firearm, along with anyone who owns a weapon being held legally responsible for its use, even if they were not the one using it (so keep your firearms secured at all times and no loaning out your firearms to unlicensed people, just like you wouldn't loan out your car to someone who wouldn't/couldn't pass the tests for a licenses). I've seen people at the range that shouldn't even be allowed to look at a gun, they're so stupidly careless.

I'd not be surprised if there was at least one firearms related death per day due to the user's stupidity or irresponsibility. The mass shootings just wind up the extremists on both sides when the real problem is nothing to do with those isolated incidents. It's to do with the extreme stupidity of both entirely too many gun owners and entirely too many are flat out anti-gun. When both sides have drawn their battle lines and refuse to compromise, nothing gets done and we all lose in the end.

Gods, I hate politics. Sniffing glue while tripping on acid and siphoning gasoline from a car while chain smoking would make more sense than a lot of political bullshiat does.

Four handguns were used in the shootings, right?
