2. The military fields and deploys all kinds

 

Of arms that fit the look of hunting rifles, and sport/self defense pistols.

The OP rationale seems to do little to address the issues of tightening registration or magazine capacity for realistic controls on firearms.

3. Please cut the shit.

Really, every time this is posted, it gets stupider and stupider.

We're talking guns here. Not tanks, not artillery, not explosives. No guided missiles or unguided rockets. No nukes, no grenades.


It's. A. RIFLE.


It shoots unguided copper-jacketed lead bullets... LIKE EVERY OTHER RIFLE.


"Military-grade" is meaningless.

5. CMP

 

The U.S. government will sell me a military surplus magazine-fed semi-automatic rifle through the CMP. Would they do that if the guns were inherently evil? http://www.odcmp.com/sales.htm
