Proposing that bill was a no-brainer, and could only help Kerry in the race. And he blew it.

Well, the popular "conspiracy theory of the week" is that Carville was a plant by Hillary to ensure Kerry doesnt get elected, so she can have a nice, wide open field to run roughshod over the Dems and get the nomination in '08.

Are you seriously getting your news from Geto Boys records?
"AK-47 is the tool/Don't make me act the motherf*ckin' fool"
That's an exact lyric quote from Ice Cube, from NWA's "Straight Outta Compton." If you don't think gangs in South Central and other crooks elsewhere weren't armed with AK-47s, you're delusional.

Uh...re-read this thread and look for the cops vs. bank robbers in LA incident. But the average citizen, despite the Second Amendment, doesn't have the right to that level of protection, just because YOU'RE not comfortable with it? Gimme a break.
Originally posted by PalpatineWIn case you don't know, this is an AR15.
That gun is LEGAL under the assault weapons ban. The ban which half of you seem to think is the only thing standing between us and Armageddon.
This AR15 is a legal post-ban weapon. It has only a detachable magazine and a pistol grip and is therefore legal. This particular rifle is a highly customized and finely tuned target rifle. It has the "flattop" modification that removes the military carry handle and has special target sights installed. The device on the muzzle is a muzzle weight and adds weight to the barrel so that the shooter can reduce recoil and achieve a good balance. To complete it, the rifle has a longer than normal barrel and a special hooked stock (but not a collapsible one).
Not all AR-15s look like that. I've seen 'em on sale at gun stores around here, where they look and feel exactly like military-spec M16A2 rifles. Same weird military sights, same carry handle, same stock. But the last selector switch position is "burst," not "auto"...hence the legality.
Just sayin' is all.
