I do believe in gun control but I can't wait to get out to a range again soon.

That's my contribution to this topic.

Yeah. Me too, It's been too long.
I have a 590A1 but it's a little annoying how quickly it's rusting.
I'm not crazy, one of the voices in my head is a psychiatrist, and he says I'm fine.

Someone that is going to kill someone else is going to do so whether or not guns are legal.

Someone is going to kill someone whether or not murder is legal.

What kind of s***ty argument is that?
^ Hey now that's completely unfair.

The AK is much more reliable than the AR. People just use the AR because it's domestic and pretty much everyone is making them nowadays.
depends. AK's win in the long term since you dont really need to lube them to make then function. AR's however are built with tighter tolerances so things like sand, dirt and mud pose less of a threat in jamming the action.


AK's are typically more reliable in adverse conditions because the tolerances aren't as tight as the AR and therefore they have more room to 'self clean' as they are bring fired. AK's are also typically more reliable with less lube, less cleaning and dirty cheap steel cased ammo.

The SCAR, F2000, HK416 and many other European assault rifles are better than the AR-15.


The AR-15 is not an assault rifle.

It's a cruel irony that electing a Republican actual helps decrease gun sales.


They don't feel like Trump is going to ban them so there's no need to stock-up.

Gun lovers have been stocking up guns and ammo during the Obama administration like crazy. The only reason to buy a new gun now is to get a new model like the Glock 5, which is like an Apple hype.

trump fans(if they havent already ITT) are probably going to say its because the US is more secure now that donald trump is in the WH, and thus the need for guns goes down.

You could argue it has to do with trump, but only because their media isnt telling them over and over again without proof he wants to ban all guns, so people dont see the need to freak out and hoard guns and ammo for the inevitable take over.

Turns out we already got that rhetoric in here.

Lets see:

during obamas term the right wing media went on and on and on about how obama wants to take all of the guns away, the govt was coming for them, etc etc. In addition to school shootings used as a ploy to raise gun sales because after sandy hook et al there would be more gun regulations and people were freaking out buying tons of guns because they were brainwashed into thinking they'd be gone tomorrow(with no proof).

Now that trump is in office, the right wing media isnt painting nearly as bleak of a scene regarding guns. You say its safer now that trump is in office, but perhaps its the fact right wing media isnt pulling scare tactics at the moment getting people to freak out and hoard guns.
