The Need for Semi-Automatic "Assault" Weapons

It's ironic (or perhaps not) that they're trying to take our guns away as we approach the time we most need them. We see what is happening in Greece with their financial crisis. Unions are rioting in the street, and Greece has the EU to bail them out. We see what unions did in Wisconsin when they were only being asked to contribute a little more for their health care. What might happen with a full economic crisis where welfare payments are cut in half, public union contracts are terminated, and entitlement programs run out of money? The police could not be counted on, especially when their own families were being threatened. The LA riots would look like a picnic. That's when we need guns at least as effective as the gangs have.

The guys are being mighty tough on your ironic remark. . .you were using irony, right?

By now, we’ve heard the argument about semi-automatic "assault" rifles: nobody needs one. We’ve heard the only reason why someone would obtain this kind of weapon is so they can kill people, which is far from the truth. We’ve also heard the argument from both the Left and the Right that a pistol is how someone protects their home.

"I really don’t know why people need assault weapons. I’m not a hunter but I understand people who want to hunt," Republican Rep. Peter King said on Morning Joe earlier this week. "I understand people who live in rough neighborhoods...
