Uh huh, right.

No, the reality is, THEY are over-reacting.
No, the reality is, THE ANTI-gunners are over-reacting.

We have a 2nd amendment. "The RIGHT of the PEOPLE to KEEP and BEAR ARMS shall NOT be INFRINGED".

If you don't like what states, you are free to TRY to amend it. Until THEN....!

"the government is fixing to ban or heavily restrict sales of semi-automatic weapons.."


States like NY have ALREADY done it.

" Please spare me the semantics" Yet, your ENTIRE post is semantics!

"If the AR15 was an assault rifle,"

The U.S. Military NEVER called the AR-15 an "assault rifle"!

And he then will just blow up whatever he will want. Some can go as far as make simplest grenades. The end result would be the same or worse.

And if you would be able to combat that, then they will switch to mass poisoners.

Guns don't kill people. People do.

And no, I don't own any gun Just too lazy, I guess.

it has nothing to do with you calling a mag a clip....any firearm can empty itself in seconds. There is nothing special , nothing supernatural , about an AR15, it is just another semi auto rifle.
