I don't remember what it was, but I'm pretty sure you're argument is invalid.

One of the primary focuses of my study of modern small arms has been that of their terminal effectiveness, i.e. their “lethality” or “wounding”, although neither of these latter terms are exactly correct. Over the past several years, I have read a good deal of scientific and medical documents, first hand accounts, and treatises by experts, to […]

One day after a truck was used to murder over 80 people in France, Kate Brown and other liberal hacks held an anti-gun press conference that had more cops than reporters.
As always, surrounded by armed guards, Governor Brown called for a ban on standard capacity magazines, an end to the safeguard that allows Oregonians to transfer firearms when the Oregon State Police don’t do their jobs and an expansion of attacks on people who are accused of domestic violence but never actually charged or convicted of anything.
Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici lied and said it was legal to go to another state and buy a gun with no background check, and demanded that Congress disallow persons on the “no fly” list from buying guns. In a moment of irony no rights hater could ever grasp, Bonamici quoted Congressman John Lewis, who was of course, on the “no fly” list.
Governor Brown said:

In a world full of AR15s and AK variants, few companies dare to be different. This list deals with a few offerings on the market that we wish would make more range appearances but tend to sit on the shelves or in distributor warehouses. Criteria for this list requires the guns to be listed by […]

This photo was posted recently but subsequently removed. It was posted by James Yeager of Tactical Response on his Instagram page. Now this photo is taken out of context but I fail to see how standing on a battle buddy’s torso is beneficial. Maybe they are training to shoot on an unstable platform? What happens […]
