America's Coming Gun War

I have an AR-15 ( my second and have been shooting them since 1971 ) but really am not impressed with them. The diminutive cartridge ain't exactly a powerhouse round. I should never have sold my L1A1 and now am considering getting the famous FAL replica known as the SA58, sold by DS Arms. Assault rifles that shoot the 7.62 NATO ( close to the .308 Winchester ) are more powerful and can reach out and touch someone at farther distances. Only disadvantage is you can't carry as much ammo around since the cartridge is bigger.
Join Gun Owners of America. I find the NRA a bit soft compared to the GOA and its members. Still an NRA member though. I just give more money to the GOA by far. The GOA has more power than many think too. If that poll would have been given to GOA members, the figures would be more like 98% but I don't know how they'd feel about the NRA school guard thing.
Even if none of this flies, the dems should be to be taken to the wood shed in 2041 mid-terms. Just the thought of this has scared the wits out at least 70 million Americans and even some dems/libs!! I know some dems that have guns because they live in dangerous places. If they thought they lost a lot in 2010, I think we might even win back the senate next mid-term.. Hey, I'm trying to think positively..
To heck with that show, I'm glad so many dealers, distributors, manufacturers and every day patriots took a stand against politically correct stupidity. I'll never go to that show. The 'family' explanation/excuse does not hold much water to me because lots of hunting guns today are based on the AR-15 design. They are made for hunting and target practice and that is as 'family' oriented as any other type of outdoor activity. A stupid mistake by this company to make that decision.

I'm thinking about 'turning in' my old Mossberg .410 shotgun at a buyback cuz I bought it for $25.00 a long time ago and I could get more at an anti-gun buyback. But do you think I'd turn in my Marlin XS7 in .308 Winnie or my Springfield XDM in .45 auto?? And for sure I'm not going to let them buy back my AR!!! Ha ha ha!!

I laugh at gun buyback schemes. There are lots of times that pro-gun people go to gun shows and buy guns for 30 bucks or so and then turn them in at a buyback for a profit!! Then they keep their good guns!! Governments can be so stupid sometimes....LOL
You are incorrect to imply that all those Swiss people KEEP their service weapon after leaving service. The fact is that they can if they want to. Some people opt not to. I know people from Switzerland, so get your facts a little straighter.
Secondarily, it would be for an 'after the fact' scenario to retake the government if a despot did get into power somehow. But hordes of people armed with grandpa's old 10 gauge goose gun style weapon or even your dad's 30.30 deer rifle would hardy intimidate a would-be dictator. Jefferson also cited basic self-defense from crime as a reason for needing the 2nd amendment.
In my opinion, assault rifles and like weapons are precisely what the second amendment would protect more than any other gun type, in this modern day and age. In the days of old, flintlock muskets were enough for the citizens to own for thwarting tyranny but now we would need something more modern and powerful to equal what 'they' would have, whoever 'they' might be. Defense against tyranny is the biggest reason the founders created the 2nd amendment. The primary object of the amendment was to deter a tyrant from taking over in the first place, not so much to regain control after one took over. It's all about prevention and being a threat to give power-hungry types second thoughts.
Bravo!! The best article in here in a while. And in my opinion, assault rifles and like are precisely what the second amendment would protect more than any other gun type, in this day and age. The reason being that defense against tyranny is the biggest reason the founders created the 2nd amendment.
