"I treated myself this Christmas"

said someone I work with. He told me he bought himself an assault rifle. He felt a little guilty about it but decided he would keep it because he had been in the military and knew how to use it appropriately.

I give up.

3. It is ok to surrender

 

We need to preserve our constitution, and not sure why he felt guilty,......think he spent too much on himself in these tough times?


I want to add, I hope he doesn't feel guilty everytime he buys a car or a new set of carving knifes.

5. Hmm, I don't see that listed

 

I am not aganst the right to life, but it is down on the pecking order, because first you have to be willing to die to have that right, and have that right preserved.

6. What a selfish individual.

 

Just like all the other people who buy themselves their own presents.

7. ARs have been the most popular rifle for some time for many reasons

including that it has been the standard light rifle in the US military for over a generation
