Government officials fear 100 million snipers.
It is not the handgun, it is that rifle that can reach out and touch them at will, they fear.

And don't tell me that you need a sniper rifle for hunting. You can get all the food you need to sustain life these days at your local grocer or restaurant.



Pretty much any hunting rifle is a "sniper rifle" by definition.

The only thing different is the intended target.

Which gun show loophole allows me to buy a machine gun?

Like Clive Bundy on Oregon. Like David Koresh in Waco. The media makes these folks out to be nut jobs, just like they've done to Mr Trump.



Maybe we should all read George Orwell's "1984" with an eye to today's main stream media propaganda.

Don't forget the group in Idaho.

As usual, you show your complete ignorance on the topic of firearms.


So, please explain this ^^^
What makes a "sniper rifle" ? You've also stated before, an AR15 isn't a hunting rifle. So Please, do tell, what can be used to hunt with ? What is Travis T approved for hunting ?

What's a "gun show loophole" ?!?!? Am I missing out on something ? I think we have a gun show coming up locally, tell me this loophole so I can maybe benefit there.

I have a girl friend who uses the AR-15 for hunting wild turkey. She hits them in the head.

It also means abiding by rules and regulations. I'll go with that. Besides, the majority of Americans are for gun reform. Militia is not the public, btw. It may be a segment of the public, like our military isn't all of us, but a segment of the population.

You can google what gun show loopholes are about.

I'm sure it's not much of a head when she's done. I don't know why anyone needs so much fire power for wildlife. A friend of mine had her spouse murdered by an AR-15. She was unidentifiable.
