    why not? I have a dozen AKs-mostly SAIGA (Russian) built but none with the giggle switch. what makes a semi auto Barrett so bad at 4 dollars a shot and the fact that most ranges cannot accommodate them. A Barrett for most people is like buying a Ferarri when you can only drive 70MPH

    and shooting them is for fun.

    Would it bother you if you had to store them at the range that you shot them at? Maybe it's because I personally don't own guns, but I don't see the point in owning anything other than for hunting or maybe protection.

    Protection from what? Protection from the government may require some additional arms.

    yeah, criminals won't why should I.


    I don't believe in being forced to do silly things that have no basis in the constitutional powers delegated to the government or have no rational reasons to do

    I really don't care what you see as legitimate reasons for owning guns. That is between you and your gun dealer. But one of the reasons why I own weapons is because there are people who want to impose their beliefs as to guns on honest law abiding citizens such as me

    or from control freaks who want to impose idiotic restrictions on the rest of us

    I have noted many times that if the government starts jailing and killing people for merely refusing to surrender once lawfully purchased or acquired arms, the FIRST people patriots should start killing are those who pushed for such laws-rather than the cops forced to engage in such fascism

    So we shouldn't be able to defend ourselves from government forces? Well that is one theory I suppose, yet it is the right and duty of the People to overthrow government should that government err to grievously for too long against our rights and liberties. As such, the People need to be allowed access to the tools to do just that.

    Perhaps, but the cops are one of the militant arms of the government to use against the People. They make a choice to enforce those rules and cannot be considered separately from the government itself.
