Fear and Loathing in the US
NOTE: This was an unpublished post that I wrote that I thought was good enough to push out.
One thing that’s will always be sure is there will be those who will use emotion and lack of knowledge to get what they want. These are typically the most dispicable type of people there are. Right now, it’s the anti-2nd admendment and gun control advocates.
One of the things that they are hoping to do is further erode our rights to own firearms. And one way they are trying to do this is by the “Assault Weapons” ban. But, how many people really know what an “Assault Weapon” is?
Unlike in 1994 when the Democrats first passed the “Assault Weapon” ban we now have lots of information available to the public about what is going on. And theres plenty of people using the internet to try and send the information around.
One such article, is this one by a Liberal. He does a fine job at describing what is going on, from a Liberal mind. The point is, “Assault Weapon” is a term fabricated by the gun control crowd. It’s not an actual term that is applied in the gun industry. Let me put it this way: There’s no such thing as an “Assault Weapon”.
What is the “Assault Weapon”? It’s things that make a rifle look evil. It has NOTHING to do with how a gun functions. There’s the barrel shroud, the pistol grip, suppressors, and finally the magazine clip. Banning these do nothing to make a gun safer or make them less likely to be used to kill someone.
