Crazy Youtube Video Showing Civilian Owned Military Weapons On A Gun Range.

I ran into a crazy video on Youtube of a gun range where participants were shooting down RC airplanes for sport. Two guys were even firing a probably 75mm howitzer type cannon. There were machine guns, military guns of all sizes and calibers and 50 caliber machine guns. These guys were just blasting away like they were in a fire fight. I don't know where this place was but it was absolutely nuts. There were sophisticated assault weapons I have never seen before.

4. The Video Was Total Mayhem

I believe there was even a grenade launcher there as well. I am going to have to look for it under "RC model" header.

6. Many weapons not considered hand-held firearms are legal

to own, but are highly regulated. Most is old stuff. I believe Michael Dorn (Warf on Star Trek) owned and flew a Sabre fighter plane (Korean-era).

2. So?

 

The guys that own actual full auto stuff are probably the most responsible gun owners in existence. They spend anywhere from $20,000-50,000 on each gun and are required to undergo a 3-6 month FBI background check before buying each item.

3. There are a lot of these. Some by CT big mouths, some by baggers, others by militia.

And their reason for having all of this is the evil, statist government coming to take their lives, while they are enabling lives to be taken now.

Their enablers are the media, Koch brothers, ALEC, NRA, etc. They don't see the incongruity of what they say they stand for, the fantasy land they have chosen to live in that is killing others.

I finally understood why the police are getting militarized. Honestly, what does one expect?

You see these demonstrations and their mad dog mentality, telling them everyone in government is planning to round them up for Camp FEMA. Are the police supposed to deal such lunacy by blowing bubbles at them?

It's an escalation pushed by those who want a civil war while they stand in high places and watch us slaughter each other and laugh.

And very few people are seeing the game.

5. I think the last murder by a machine gun was in 1992.

There was another murder with a legal machine gun in 88, and in that case a cop was the person who killed the other person.
