See, I might be some kind of lunatic, but I think my life, or my neighbor's life, or the life of some dude or gal halfway across the state that I've never met, is just as important a life as any cop, or politician, or any other great and wonderful Poohbah. If it's such a good tool for the purpose it was built, then it's just as perfectly built to help me defend myself as it is for anybody else, employment notwithstanding.
Me, I think cops SHOULD have ARs in their arsenals, and you know what... I know a lot of cops that feel the same way about me. Unfortunately, their bosses don't, and when the rubber meets the road, these are the poor saps you guys are going to try to march out and round up all the scary, icky bad ARs. And a few of us won't be so accommodating.
GHARB!! We need better health treatment!! They need doctors!!!
Doctor: Here, you need to take these to help with your mental health issues. Pfizer made this just for you.
Side effects include bleeding from the eyes, restless leg syndrome, compulsive gambling and fits of homicidal rage. Ask you doctor if WhargMahrgLargAMaGhard® is right for you.
This is grandstanding nonsense, who has stated anyone's life is of lesser value? You're entitled to your opinion about what firearms you think are best, no one has stated they will round people up and take their AR's.
James Yeager learned his lesson for acting like a moron.
Prince Andy made his (in)famous speech where he declared "confiscation is an option", and then while 'grandstanding' (to use the parlance of the times) he stated that the NYSafe Act (requiring registration) was "an important first step".You're entitled to your opinion about what firearms you think are best, no one has stated they will round people up and take their AR's.
Insults and intimidation. Now I'm positive you work for the govt. (or possibly Scientology)James Yeager learned his lesson for acting like a moron.
Banning Ars as you have suggested has no real effect on crime. You know it. I know it. The people who wrote the law know it. There's no real decrease in criminal activity with "assault weapons" coming from this new ban, other than to make previously law-abiding citizens into criminals. It's all just a big exploitation of emotionally charged times, and a power-grab. There's only two types on the other side of this one in my book, those who are complicit in the exploitation and their sycophants. You can't have conversation with those who want to get rid of certain "icky" guns, they've already decided that their emotions on the subject trump any real discussion of costs insued and progress gained by any such new laws. All ****ing emotion. That's why they try to ram new laws like this on the heels of tragedy. Rahm Emmanuel said it himself, "never let a tragedy go to waste". Your side is determined to make this some sort of showdown. Try to spare me the faux surprise and indignation when someone actually stands up for what is there's. It might be an odd sight in America these days, but it's due for a revival. You know what? There might not be as many as I suspect, who will stand and say "I will keep what's mine." But there won't be as few as you suspect either.

From your article:
These kids were lucky and the article jumps to a conclusion, no? These kids assume the barrel of a empty rifle made them leave. Assumptions are now conclusions?Nothing was taken and no shots were fired.
The rifle was not loaded at the time of the home invasion, according to Raymond.
Libs love leaving out relevant facts that don't fit their illusionary viewpoint...
also from the article:
On that same night, approximately 5 hours previous, two U of R students faced a similar situation. They we're unarmed. They, consequently, we're robbed.Rochester, N.Y. — Early Tuesday morning, Christopher Boise heard a noise coming from the basement. As he walked toward the source of that noise, the RIT student noticed two men standing in the downstairs portion of his apartment.
"They were waiting for me at the bottom of the stairs," said Boise.
One of them had a handgun trained on Boise.
Within moments, Boise screamed. His cries were heard by his roommate, Raymond.
"It wasn't like a, 'I stepped by stepped on a piece of glass' kind of scream," Raymond said. "So, I instinctively went to my gun bag."
Raymond owns an AR-15 which is a military style rifle.
Raymond estimated that just five seconds passed until the door started to open. It was one of the intruders.
"By the time I had it out and ready, one of the men came at my door, slowly opened it, saw that there was a barrel on the other side and from there backed out," Raymond said.
The two men fled the apartment.

Also - what are your thoughts on the LA riots of the early 90s, when there were neighborhoods the cops had abandoned and shopkeepers were left on their own? A lot of them had assault type weapons.
i love how the ar15 is now targeted by every ignorant gun hater as the one that is the most dangerous of all "assault" variants, meanwhile, there are probably 20 or 30 other rifles that are virtually identical in firepower, capacity, looks etc.
these, you dont hear about. probably because those who want the ar15 banned really dont have a clue about guns in general.
hanguns kill. not ar15s
I have no doubt that given the opportunity Barry and the rest of the gun control loons would do the same on a national scale.
