Wikileaks Party Making Questionable Deals In Attempt To Win Senate Seat

Broken scope Hunters and Fishers (162 comments)

Can someone explain what is so Objectionable about the Hunters and Fishers party that it needed to be grouped with an obviously racist white nationalist organization? I'm not really finding any thing all that objectionable about the hunters and fishers.

Your example was fucking stupid and is a common suggestion put forth by people who have never handled firearms.

Broken scope Re:Boom (814 comments)

That "Anti-Gun Propaganda" was being spewed by a gun owner and a CWL holder. Nothing about that video was anti gun. That video was anti POS "lockable storage containers" which are passed off a "safes". And the lock on that 92FS could be quickly and easily removed without much effort. That could be picked easily or removed with bolt cutters.

Brilliant way to waste money. Just take it to a gun shop which will give you a bill of sale and when they sell it they have to run a background check.

Attempting to shoot someone in the foot is stupid and dangerous. Extremities are very small and difficult to hit and shooting at possibly hard ground can cause a ricochet which would put others in danger. If you are shooting at a person, you shoot for center of mass. If the situation doesn't require lethal force, you shouldn't bring a weapon into the situation.

New Smart Gun Company Hopes To Begin Production This Summer

Broken scope Re:I won't be buying one... (632 comments)

No, the AK is preferred around the world is because it's stupidly cheap and if you can't find some of the millions in existence, you make one mostly out of sheet metal and rivets. On top of that

3D-Printed Gun May Be Unveiled Soon

Broken scope Re:Barrel and slide/bolt too? (625 comments)

There are people across the spectrum that believe in private firearm ownership, however the overwhelming majority are found on the right. I'd say 80 to 90% of gun owners are right leaning.

Then he doesn't understand the law at all. You can make your own original design and build it so long as you aren't selling it.

3D-Printed Gun May Be Unveiled Soon

Broken scope Re:Barrel and slide/bolt too? (625 comments)

Not quite, I have a full auto(M-16) carrier in my rifle, even though my trigger group, safety, and receiver are not capable of supporting automatic fire.

Broken scope Re:Barrel and slide/bolt too? (625 comments)

Are you fucking kidding me? Half the gun nuts I know are fast approaching the fringe right and love the police state so long as the police state applies to everyone else. Most of them are moderates but they are single issue voters when it comes to firearms, the rest either libertarians or left leaning.

Build a Secret Compartment, Go To Jail

Broken scope Re:co-conspirator (1111 comments)

I don't think an NICS denial is grounds for prosecution considering the frequency of false positives and people not having any idea why they are being denied. The real prosecutions result from straw purchases and lying on the form 4473.

'Download This Gun' — 3-D Printed Gun Reliable Up To 600 Rounds

Broken scope Re:Time to shift focus? (582 comments)

.223 isn't a military cartridge. 5.56x45mm NATO is a military cartridge. .308 isn't a military cartridge, 7.62x51mm NATO is a military cartridge. The whole idea is fucking stupid anyways, since god only knows how many popular, common cartridges have been used by the military at some point. On top of that, the politically motivated could just direct military procurement to outlaw every new replacement round. What? The military made a spec for a rifle cambered in .247, gave it a designation, and had a single unit produced, and kept for special purposes? Fuck you for not having 1000.00 laying around to start reloading.
