The liberal gun grabbers need to be imprisoned. No question they are Human Rights violaters.

But Gun Fags need to be executed. Every single one of you fags putting carbon fiber stocks on your $1000 tactical rifel then claiming "Oh i-i-it's not an Assault Weapon!" needs to have your hands broken with a hammer. In public. While screaming "It's not assault weapon! IT'S NOT AN ASSAULT WEAPON!"

The fact that conservatives support you liars has been one of the main weaknesses of the entire conservative movement.
well when your right your right.....

Guns were sacred and the 2A was sacred. Gun fags turned it into Legos.
So let me see if I have this right- because people are out using their guns, talking about their guns on instagram, and wearing t-shirts that talk about how great their guns are, it's drawing unnecessary attention to their use?
You're recommending more of a don't ask don't tell approach?

Does it mean I have to like it? I like buying from people that support what I'm interested in. Colt doesn't. So F-em.

And to address your rant, the current craze I'd very likely due to the 10 year ban on semi-autos. Suddenly something fun was legal again, and the media spend every hour is every day taking about how we need to ban them again. I bought my first AR15 for only one reason, Obama wanted to ban them. The political climate for guns is much better now than in 1994. But, you know, keep yelling at that cloud.

So true.... the "base" of the gun is the lower receiver; which is basically a generic part now days, that is made by many manufacturers.

Besides, everything else attached to the lower receiver is gun bling...

Can y'all just ignore the fucking troll? If no one would engage him he'd eventually get bored and move on.

Army recruiting is in the toilet, police are leaving in droves. The CEOs statement does not make sense. I would have expected the civilian market to dwarf military/leon market anyway. I wonder what the real truth is?

it's not about owning the right guns.


its about thinking that banning certain types of guns is fine because you don't own that kind and it won't affect you.

This. The OP posted up "fake news".

GUN FAGGOTS RUINED GUNS FOR EVERYONE.

Every single one of you gun faggots needs to be taken out in the public square and whipped across your bare, flabby white asscheeks you fucking faggots should die first when the Day of the Rope arrives.


You are a piece of shit faggot troll. Why donít you stick an AR-15 up your ass, pull the trigger while you drink bleach, and fuck a blender!
