@whodat6484

LOL ghetto grip! Never heard that but they're nice alot more ergonomic but you know that.

@SmagBoy1

It's semi-auto so's this....


I can fire them both at pretty much the exact same rate. Ever notice the ones that want to dictate guns are the people who have no clue about them?

"I get to decide how to spend my private time and with what tools to spend it. you, nor anyone else, should get to decide whether the gun i choose to recreate with or protect my home with, is appropriate."

EXACTLY! I'm still waiting for nuclear bombs to become available to the public. I'm the one who decides what is appropriate or not, and I think nuclear bombs are appropriate so I have the right to own one.

No, whodat6484, I know exactly what it is, and I know exactly how easily an AR-15 can be "altered" (or, shall we say, "fixed") to make it fully automatic. Which is what they're made to be and what they are save for a small adjustment (I've already posted a link). I'm not nearly as stupid as you assume I am.

I get to decide how to spend my private time and with what tools to spend it. you, nor anyone else, should get to decide whether the gun i choose to recreate with or protect my home with, is appropriate. I am a sane and law abiding citizen and have earned the right to do as i please and with what i please. if we are going to start banning things because we don't like them in the name of the public good then lets start with american idol, maury povich, judge judy, survivor, the view, the talk, according to jim, jersey shore, 18 and pregnant, and a bunch of other crap i don't have space to list. i'm not saying i hate tv, i watch quite alot of it i just hate those shows and shows like them and i think they are making people dumber and dumber with every minute they watch them. So as long as we get to get on our high horses and direct someone elses life....

@SmagBoy1 - You clearly have no idea what a semi-automatic firearm is, do you? The explanation Sealamino gave is 100% correct, you are stupid.

Banning a specific make/model gun because somebody shot at a school is rubbish, it's not gonna do anything. It's like banning a specific make/model CAR because somebody ran over an entire kindergarden on a fieldtrip... People that think that way are just stupid, lifeless objects don't do evil, people do.

I've used an AR-15 effectively as a varmint rifle. Sure, you'd look like a tool trying to take down an elk with one...but you could certainly do it.

I don't understand why the "home defense" argument doesn't stand for itself. I suppose the NRA has to resort to the lesser arguments in order to assuage the rabid anti-gun mob.

Sealamino, the AR-15 is semi-automatic about as much as a bear doesn't poo in the woods. Come one, man, do you honestly think we're that dumb?

I have a rather large asortment of swords and knives, but no guns. I'm cheap and don't want to have to get bullets, or a gun liscence, or a gun.
Fired a bunch though a few years ago.

an AR-15 is semi-automatic. That means one pull of the trigger equals one bullet. Exactly the same as a handgun. You can only shoot it as fast as you can pull the trigger, again same as a handgun.

Yay for 10+ rounds per second weapons


any rifle used for hunting is limited to 5 rounds already...theres no shredding involved.

Funny, the guy that wrote this article doesn't understand guns any better than any other person calling for "assault weapons" bans. They are ALL ignorant.

First, AR-style rifles are extremely smooth, stupid accurate, light, and are made in "deer" caliber chambers, and can be GREAT for hunting.

Second, arguing that we can ban them because they aren't as good as a hand gun in home defence makes no sense... because that means that at close range a hand gun can kill people just as quickly and effectively as an assault rifle. Might as well ban everything but bolt-actions then. This guy says the NRA's stance is ludicrous, but doesn't see the idiocy of his argument that it's the style of gun that makes them deadly.

Third, many non-assault style rifles, like a ranch-stock mini-14 are just as deadly as an AR style gun. Heck, even if you have a bolt action rifle with detachable magazine you could kill one person every second if you were an insa

Yep, I guess if you want your meat pre-shredded to bits, the AR-15 is your gun! Yay for 10+ rounds per second weapons!

Oh, I know, I know they're not fully automatic. My ass. So, whatever.

I'd rather get hit with the .223 caliber (5.56mm) ammo fired by an AR-15 than a .308 Winchester (.30-06 or 7.62mm)fired by most hunting rifles any day of the week.

@McGovern1981 - I love those collapsible stocks, and the ghetto grip. Had them on my M4, came in handy for close quarters.

I'm all for guns but honestly my one question is how do you keep this out of the hands of a lunatic? Being able to mow 20+ people down in seconds is a little much. What's the solution to this problem with mass murders? How do you prevent someone with mental health problems from acquiring weapons?

McGovern, don't expect Fancy to ever agree with anything that has to do with guns. I bet when he was in elementary school, he called the police because all the other kids were using their thumb and pointer finger to shoot each other.
