A Quiz For My "Assault Weapon" Ban Friends!

After some spirited conversation with a family member tonight I decided to throw this little quiz out. For ones that already know the answer, please feel free to chime in. 

So what is the evil assault rifle that needs to be banned? 

Exhibit A




  








Colt M-4 


Exhibit B










Glenfield Model 75C by Marlin. 

Decades mark the difference between these rifles.  So which one is the "EVBIL ASSAULT RIFLE OMG the children!"  Well guess what. Both fire the .22LR cartridge and both are semi-automatic. So now we are left with the fact that the M-4 has a large capacity clip magazine. Oh, maybe the "shoulder thing that goes up" too.  Really? 10 rounds vs 20? At what point does capacity become "EVIL"?

Last I heard man's capacity for evil goes back to the first of recorded history. Cain committed murder on his brother with a rock if memory serves.

  1. It will also apply to 10-22s which DO have 30 round mags available... Concur with your last statement too!

  2. True enough about Cain, but the control freaks can't be bothered with little realities like the truth of evil being in the heart and not the choice of weapon, when control is on the line. Looking forward to reading more of your blog and learning more about guns and 2nd Amendment topics, thanks.

  4. The answer: Neither. The 'evil' is in the person wielding it.

    My favorite argument by leftists is that, "Well, the Founding Fathers didn't envision the sort of weapons that are available now, just muskets."

    Well, then, I'm sure they didn't envision television, radio or the internet, so I suppose the First Amendment is invalid, too?

  5. Exactly correct Keads.

    We need a new definition for insanity. How about lying and when no one believes it telling the same lie again (in a shocked voice of course) and being surprised when no one buys it the second time?

    All the 'evil gun bits' lies in the world cannot mask the true anti gun agenda. Total ban.

  6. I've hit the 'I can't debate with you about guns because you are too stupid to breathe' level.

  7. Don't remind me of the Cain Story. I was in Bible school and we were hearing that, and it got to the part where Cain was banished and then "knew" his wife and begets so on and so on. And I asked "Wait, Adam and Eve were the only people on earth and Cain and Abel were their two sons. Where did Mrs. Cain come from?" (remember I was about 9). Was it his SISTER?

    I think we broke early that day.
