Oslama has done great things for weapon and ammo manufactures

More ammo was sold in the last 4 years than in the last 40 years

223 was a penny each a few years ago and now they are a dollar each

Just a few years ago cheaper than dirt sold 1000 round bricks of 223 for about 90 dollars

Today it is 999 dollars

Better than gold or silver for sure

<quoted text>Speed limits ?
When was the last time you were on I-75 , the speed limit might as well be 100 MPH . Almost no one is going the speed limit.
Now lets get down to brass tacks .
When someone is pulled over for speeding or running someone over while being intoxicated their is no big cry from the liberal camp or our President to restrict everyone's driving privileges and this is not a Constitutional right.
Gun restrictions based on the actions of a very small minority of gun owners is nothing more then collective punishment.
Tell me why , when you purchase a hand gun you have to identify your race and also declare if you are Hispanic/Latino or not.
Is this a symbol of equal rights ?
Gun laws are just like locks ; The only work on honest people.
What outlandish and self-serving drivel! A car is a means of transportation and with millions of them on the road every single day accidents are unavoidable but have been reduced considerable with RULES AND REGULATIONS. What was it again you said about guns?

So you think the 2nd amendment allows for the citizens to own what the military owns???
A mini 14 is easer to convert to full auto than a AR is

No file will convert a AR to fire fully auto

that was suggested years ago by the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY) but to tax gun ammunition but what your suggesting is what Mitt Romney did as Governor of Massachusetts and Newt Gingrich brought during the campaign too.

your basic assumption that sworn LEOs and our legitimate institutions and military are your enemies is pretty insane.
No my assumption is legally there is no difference between a civilian police officer and a civilian. If you can find that law please post it. The police are not going to me happy if their assault rifles and 30 rd mags are outlawed. Military and Civilian matter has already been settled in the courts years ago. As of now Police can not use Military weapons nor can civilians.(Yes,,,, there are a few exceptions to this rule)Police and Civilians can own full auto which could have been Military at one time.
.
NO where did I post anything about enemies.

Wrong again

The AR is far more difficult to convert than a mini 14

A pre ban lower receiver just needs the parts dropped in, about a hour job to do it correctly

A post ban AR will require precision welding, heat tempering and machining

A mini 14 can be converted in about 20 minutes with common hand tools

That is a lie..........

The trigger assembly does not work like that as it was designed to have a safe position, semi auto, 3 round burst, full auto.........

But the mini 14 or mini 30 can be converted as you describe but no spring needed
