What is it with these ammosexuals?

I mean I like guns. I own many guns. I believe in (reasonable) gun rights. I shoot skeet & trap. I target shoot. I hunt shotgun and rifle. I really really get it.

But why do these ammosexual weirdos have to make it all creepy and rub themselves while fantasizing about guns?!?!?!?  I mean, I like cats too, but I don't watch cat porn and jerk to it!

What the actual FARK ?!?!?!?  You're giving us all a bad name!!!!

There was a thread on twitter discussing this. It ends with Russian Biker gangs showing up. Lemme see if I can find it...

I'm sure the value of the gun exceeds what a congressperson can legally accept.  Let's see if she turns it in.

It's the Rambo fantasy.  Look at what they cosplay, and it is cosplay.  They have AR-15's with scopes that would be overkill on a floated barrel .308 (for those not into guns, like having racing tires on the family sedan).  They have long barrel rifles for use in cities, and carry thousands of rounds of ammunition, or multiple firearms all with different calibers.  It's just a fantasy.

Are we going to see expulsions before she shoots a Democrat on the House floor, or will all that wait until after that happens?

18 USC § 713(e) Whoever, except as directed by the United States Congress, or the Secretary of the Senate and the Clerk of the House of Representatives, acting jointly on its behalf, knowingly uses, manufactures, reproduces, sells or purchases for resale, either separately or appended to any article manufactured or sold, any likeness of the seal of the United States Congress, or any substantial part thereof, except for manufacture or sale of the article for the official use of the Government of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

She can legally buy it, but it probably can't legally be sold to her.

Likely the bozos will get lucky and get no more than a fine. Very likely they will only get a "that's fine".

You could argue a citizens brigade gifting the local FBI field office an M249 with the FBI seal embossed on it for "doing what they're supposed to", right after they raid the biker gang.

And this. Their problem is they assume liberals are going to just stand there, we own guns too, and can  shoot back. We don't advertise it because we don't have small dicks and a huge chip on our shoulders. Plus we won't have the eternal grievance and victimhood ammosexuals do.

In all honestly, this doesn't really trouble me. A group that supports her did something they thought was a nice gesture of appreciation for their Representative. In the process they broke a law (regarding the seal) that i was unaware of so I won't argue the point if they say they weren't aware of it either. She's said that she is not in possession of the gun but that she might purchase it. I'm ok with this too- I get the impression she (as a newly elected congresswoman) might not have been fully aware accepting this as a gift was a rules violation, but once she was aware she acted to comply with those rules. This is right and proper, and is something politicians on both sides of the aisle have done and will do again.

That whole "complicit in sedition" thing, now....

After Everest makes sure the firearm is unloaded, he hands it to the visibly delighted Boebert

Well, at least he cleared it first.  Every weapon in your hand is a loaded weapon until you personally clear it.

I'll note that they don't say that she then also cleared it, which she should have done.

FTFA:  Boebert now says she does not currently have possession of the gun, perhaps because it's a violation of House ethics rules for members to accept gifts worth more than $50.

True enough. I spent 3 1/2 days wheezing in bed last week and would have been happy to wheeze on those mouth-breathing idiots. Thankfully it didn't get bad enough to go to the hospital but now I'm developing Post-COVID Shakes in my hands and arms. Not good for a drafter by profession.

I'm actually gonna say we should give a pass to the bikers here on everything except the illegal gathering itself, which is misdemeanor crap at worst.  The rest of it it's frankly entirely reasonable that they'd be ignorant of, they probably realized the legal issues behind gifting someone a gun and made sure the title paperwork was good and left it at that.

Boebert, however, should be legitimately expected to know all of that was illegal, because it's literally her job.  And she's explicitly required by law to know about the gift thing and keep it in mind at all times.

So... give the bikers a slightly stern talking to for a couple minutes that warns them not to do it again, then eject Boebert from congress, charge her with several felonies, and lock her in prison, is I think the most reasonable set of responses to this.

Did anyone catch this bit?

In the video, Everest begins by telling the crowd, which had gathered in violation of Colorado coronavirus restrictions, "Unfortunately we weren't able to give our congresswoman the big surprise we wanted to," without explaining what that "big surprise" would have been.

I'm going to bet the "big surprise" would be a trial and execution of democratic legislators or some such.

These Austrian guns are quality machines and I don't think any are below $500 MSRP.

Obvious solution is more funding for Pornhub to give people a healthier porn to jerk with. Next stimulus better have a subscription for all Americans to Pornhub and OnlyFans or we are going to riot.

They are actually fine pistols. Reliable, durable, accurate, and easy to maintain. I agree some people buy them for the wrong reason but they are a top seller world wide for a reason.

If the house Fails to do its duty and oust her for sedition, then she is absolutely going to be the "rights aoc" and shes going to keep saying the stupidest things possible, and conservatives are going to love her because she "triggers the libs". Nevermind that AOC is a policy advocate and that the reason the right hates her is because shes a threat. Lauren Dilbert has a real future in conservative derp-hood if we let seditionist go.

Repubs can't actually legislate. They bring nothing new to the table. They depend on rattling empty cans like these women and Gaetz and Jordan to bluster and outrage and hide the fact that they don't do shiat for their constituents.

I mean, Gaetz just went to farking Wyoming to whine about Liz Cheney. How in the fark does that help the people in his district?

It's circuses all the way down.

My next question would be, who does have possession of the gun?  Did the bikers take it back, or did she hand it off to her buddy Gil who's totally good for it and would never... uh-oh, where'd it go?

But aren't we told that ignorance is not an excuse for breaking the law?

Beyond the legalities, I'm not giving them a pass for being gun fetishists rewarding a woman not only based a business off of, but got into Congress on a platform of attention whoring about her guns. Fark 'em.

The gun itself is fine.  Turns out - it just works.  All the time.  The problem with it is, much like the AR, it is a modular platform that allows for so much customization that the rednecks turn it into trash.

I kind of view it as a jeep.  I hate jeeps, but the original Army jeep was damn near indestructible and just continued to work no mater what you threw at it.  Jeep was American made tho, and the glock comes from Austria.  Far be it from me to criticize Austrians when it comes to killing people.
