    Re: President Obama takes the stage at VFW convention in Phoenix



    Is this a black man with an assault weapon? So, what's the issue here the weapon or the black man?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    The issue here is the continued demonization of people utilizing their second amendment rights..

    And the continued dysphisimismsmsmsms of firearms by the media.
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    To most people an assault rifle is anything that looks like a combat weapon. It is dull black, pistol grip, magazine, short and easy to handle. Kind of looks like these m16 assault rifles to the untrained eye.



    Get over it.




    So....


    this is not an assault weapon according to your definition?

    Anyone that knows even a little bit about these weapons should already be familiar with this information. It's the difference between, "pre-ban", and, "post-ban", lower receivers. Purdy much common knowledge among firearms enthusiasts.

    Olympic lower. Pre-ban on the left, post ban on the right.



    Here's on you may be able to purchase, if you're interested.

    That's exactly why I pointed out that the dude is black.

    Don't hear none of them accusations, now.

    An assult rifle is anything with a large capacity magazine. Typically, those weapons are designed with a combat'esque look.

    If the point was to provoke fear, no worries. The gunman already did that. Otherwise, reporters are reporters. They're expected to be knowledgeable to a reasonable degree. I think calling a gun that had assault rifle ancestors and offspring an assault rifle is reasonable intelligence. Also, I bet you there's a sizeable amount of people in the US that believes AR-15 stands for Assault Rifle 15. In either case, if the reporter is wrong, he's wrong. It's not like the AR-15's status as a weapon is commonly known.

    If it did, the person doing it could be arrested for disturbing the peace, etc.
    Did that happen?
    Oh really? So I have the right to suppress your rights (2nd Amendment) because I'm scared of them? That's news to stevenb.

    I'm sorry, but needs and purpose aren't required to exercise your constitutionally given rights.

    And, again I'm sorry that you believe that the "fears" or "dislikes" of others of me exercising my rights trump my rights... Maybe we could apply that to the liberals and their precious freedom of speech... and start restricting when they can talk about subjects that make me uncomfortable? Or subjects that I don't like?

    It is not my problem if you're uneasy about seeing a gun in a law abiding citizens hand's.

    So while I respect your right to object to me carrying a rifle, I have to politely tell you to bite my ass while I exercise my rights.

    Is that "hello kitty"? That may be even sillier than your hair splitting. I have fired both of these weapons and when it comes down to it there is no real difference between semi and auto when you have a thirty round mag and a fast trigger finger. You can quickly throw a lot of lead downrange on semi and in the end probably hit your target more accurately than just spraying bullets. After three or four rounds you are no longer aiming, only pointing.

    No, an assault rifle is a rifle that has assault capabilities.

    Merely possessing a large magazine capacity does not make a rifle an assault rifle.

    Hell, by that definition my 10/22 with a 30 round magazine in it is an assault rifle.

    Get informed before you continue to parrot liberal media talking points.

    What's your point?

    There is a very clear line in the sand between the functionality of both.

    One is an assault rifle... because it is select fire.

    The other is a semi-automatic rifle, because that is the only firing mode it has.
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
