It makes me angry that in 'Merica, a business can't advertise cigarettes and yet

businesses selling WMD are advertised quite frequently on our interstates.




There is a new one not more than 5 miles from my home. So very angry.

She was always yappin' 'bout not keepin' loaded guns on the coffee table an' stupid shit like that. Plus - she never had the damn dinner on the table on time. Can't find no good woman, figured maybe I can grow one. (Huh huh.)

is the one they choose to drop from their "message". Sports, food and guns, why am I not surprised?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weapon_of_mass_destruction

Semiautomatic rifles are not WMD's, the term is quite specific.

As for "mass kill" weapons, I've never seen the term. What are they?

37. PGR and grenades are both *DESIGNED* as kill/maim offensive force multiplier devices ...

... I would like PGRs to be mass kill weapon but its not designed to be/send explosives or poison gas.

Whatever, both devices were DESIGNED to do the same thing; kill a bunch of humans in a short time.

Neither grenade nor PGR need to be in the hands of the unregistered for use.

43. Why does a pistol grip matter? Is a Mini-14 with such a grip deadlier than one with a more

traditional stock? They fire the same round at the same velocity with the same accuracy at the same rate of fire.

Isnít it interesting that accusations of trolling are frequently made by those without sound arguments?
