    Why would you own an assault rifle?

    Recently, A Democrat senator suggested that he has no idea why anyone would need to have an assault rifle. His ignorance is the premise of his decision to limit the 2nd amendment. To me the answer is pretty easy.

    I would own an assault reason for the exact same reason I would own a superfast sports car that is built to exceed legal speed limits. So that if the Chinese drilling off our coast where we are not allowed to ever decided to sneak soldiers and nukes into the gulf instead of oil rig workers and equipment and invaded Florida blitzkrieg style, I'd have a chance of getting out alive.

    Seriously though, would you own an assault rifle? And if so, why?

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    I can if I want-its not worth the money to pay 20K for a rifle that is worth 1000 dollars and the giggle switch is not all that entertaining to me. Of course I have about 10,000 rounds of full auto fire under my belt so maybe its less alluring

    but the hassles of owning them is ridiculous and it allows the ATF clowns basically unlimited right to invade your privacy

    a real assault rifle should be no more expensive or hard to own than a Semi Auto block or AR 15

    When he said assault rifle, I think he had AR 15 types in mind. He said AK 47, but you can get those (non-automatic) cheaper than an AR 15

    So this is about Che all the sudden?

    But Che actually thought people should own arms, to 1)revolution and 2)protect the revolution..

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    I have no reason to use it, therefore why own it? I used to own quite a few guns. I never used them. I got rid of them.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    AR 15s run between 650 for the cheap sportier stuff to a couple grand for the piston driven Noveseke or Lewis Machine or Daniels Defense stuff or the tricked out Fulton Armory National Match stuff

    AKs-the cheap WASRS can be had for around 375 up to the KREBS and the Red Jacket (Son of a Gun tv show-Will Hayden in Louisiana) AK 103s built on real Russian Ishmatz or SAIGA AKs can cost up to 1500 and are really really good

    I have most of the good semi stuff

    original STEYR AUG and the USA made Microtech

    the current best SIG

    Colt, RR, DMPS, armalite and Bushmaster ARs

    Beretta AR 70

    Russian, Hungarian, Polish, Bulgarian (ARSENAL-top of the line) AKs

    Belgian (FN) USA (DSA) South American (Imbel, Springfield Armory) FN FALS

    MIAI super match (springfield armory)

    AR 10 (762 NATO Rock River)

    I have also owned the VALMET the Gallil, the AR-180 (original armalite, and the Japanese HOWA), HK in both 308 and 556 and a Portugese G3 and a few Chinese POLY TECH AKMs and Type 56s.

    I know this stuff inside and out

    and its hard to beat an M4 Colt or Rock River for all round rifle work

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    Already have a Bushmaster M-4
    will be getting a HK-91 soon.

    Since I have a problem with my right wrist, I pretty much have to use either assault style or thumb-through.
