Those are the ones who will side with the anti's on most issues, and especially issues related to "assault rifles"

Think these people have any idea of what an "assault rifle" actually is?

It doesn't matter if they know the truth.
They know what the media tells them

They just know they are "scary, evil, weapons of war"

Pretty much what Snyder said. Sadly, most folks will believe whatever the box with flashy lights tells them.

Fact checking is too bothersome for most. So most get brainwashed into believing whatever the MSM and anti' spew.

It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled

I have a friend that "can't tell the difference, or see any difference" between these 2 rifles.




(pics (c) Wogpotter 2010, 2012)

Now here's the interesting thing, he's far from stupid & is mechanically inclined. He'll debate the differences between an M2 & an M3 Leica for hours! He just has this "black hole" for any kind of firearms information.

I think its pointless discussing technical firearms info of any kind with people with that mental attitude, it just isn't something they see a need to understand.

Ah, yes. Another of the "Eez gon ... eez danjerooz" crowd. That's all they know, that's all they need to know, and that's all they want to know.

Well one of em is clearly on a chair and the other is on a stump...

What's scarier than the attempted ammo ban, is what the actually got accomplished here in WA...

The attempt was shelved, and we're drifting off topic.

If legislation comes up to revive it, we can discuss that in another thread.
