You miss-interpreted my deer hunting comment.
I see where you're coming from but I don't think cigarettes and firearms make for a very good comparison. Firearms have the ability so save a life as much as they do to commit evil.
When I was referring to you supporting government I was talking about police and military being able to have them but not the ordinary citizen. Someone else posted on here about non military government agencies that are stockpiling arms and weapons. That is incredibly threatening to us and if we allow them to disarm us there will be even less for us to do about it than there already is.
I am a very responsible gun owner so don't tell me what I should and shouldn't do. I have a semi automatic rifle with high capacity magazines. It is pretty old however and doesn't look as threatening so you can't find it on any of the government lists! In addition to it being awesome to shoot, I hunt around the border a lot and I always like to have it in the blind with me. I've never needed to use it and hopefully I don't ever have to but if it ever comes down to me and a coyote or drug runners I wanna be as prepared as possible.
This one is on sale, & comes with free S&H
It pisses me off when people think it stands for Assault Rifle!

You've been Seneca hunting?, are you a racist?
That is not very Aggie like to use language like that.
Thats a hell of a deal. Im gonna jump on that deal now. Better use my American Express, I could use the points.
hell of a deal. . . . you should pick one up Sherm, let me know how it is.
It says it is waterproof to 66 feet. Why in the world would my AR ever be 66 below water. Cool but very unneeded
I never brought up politics until someone else did... Plus I like guns... What's your point?
From IH-35 to IH-10... what then?
Now there you go being like Gary.....
He may want to go shark hunting....
Proverbs 10:4 (NIV)
Lazy hands make for poverty,
but diligent hands bring wealth.
So you were interpreting his polite request as, "if you like guns, but want to bash ARS, let's do that!"?
Remind me again that you're not dumb?
Aimpoint is considered better by some. Just preference, I guess.
I think aimpoint is a more robust design. . . . but more expensive I believe.
Only 66 feet. . . . . I was gonna get it. . . . .
This isn't for your AR. . . . . maybe for a SEALs m16
I expect the wait time on the PredaOBR to be ~18 months. I just joined the queue. I have backup plans in the event my demand for a battle rifle increases between now and then.
GaryRizz apparently works as an administrative director at a 200-bed hospital. I will bet this institution is not for-profit, and relies on Medicare (government) reimbursement to make its payroll and keep the lights on. Gary has in fact chosen to rely on the government to make his living. His views expressed in relation to owning an AR make sense in light of his choice. It would very courageous (perhaps a bridge too far) for Gary to confront a scenario in which the government was not there for him and his family, perhaps even, to the extent where government agents sought to confiscate his guns and/or to pack his family off to a special camp in the name of 'public safety.'
To address his point about 'not seeing a situation in which an AR is needed,' I will use a hunting analogy. To bring down big game, you need a high powered rifle. In an anarchy situation, you must be prepared to kill people efficiently. The AR fits this bill, takes down deer and hog out to 400 meters, and is portable if you and your family have to move fast and hard (BTW, this would be a last resort for my family, I'm turning my house into Fort Apache). Also, Gary, why does the DHS require 1.6 billion rounds of battle rifle ammunition? What threat are they preparing to confront? Doesn't this non-military domestic-focused government agency weapons and ammo stockpile bother you given your expressed drive for everyone to focus on life and being productive?
I would urge all Americans, including Gary to become less reliant on government for necessities; our Federal government is certainly pursuing a reckless and unsustainable fiscal and monetary policy. Better to struggle in freedom than serve in slavery. I feel it is appropriate to plan for a scenario where currency is worthless, barter is common, buying food at a grocery store is impossible, and electricity is no longer readily available.
So what if the cumulative 5-year probability of this scenario is 0.0025? The consequences of this potential outcome are so dramatic that every responsible American family should consider some contingency planning.

Keep wondering where this idea that I am a government man, where did this come from?
Gary, your salary gets paid by an organization (hospital) that is reliant on the government for funding.
Every action in that hospital is heavily influenced by government-issued best practices.
Without Medicare, Gary, you have no job.
Doesn't mean I actually agree or disagree with the current government stage

For fuck's sake people, does every gun thread need to turn into this?
If everyone does, then I guess the answer is yes. Enjoy!
And thanks for instigating that.
Seriously, if you own guns and respect others' rights to own guns, why bitch at someone for owning a different gun than what you own? You just sound like an asshole trying to start shit.
Thanks, just picked up two. I figure I can rig the other one up to my 44, if not I'll save it for my future son's bb gun
