    "You don't buy an AR to hand it over. You buy it to shoot people who want you to hand it over."

    I started a thread in General Discussion about derogatory name calling, and had a couple of gentlemen point out that my signature line seemed to mean one thing, and my viewpoint another.

    The original quote came from a member of Northeastshooters.com, and it meant one thing to me, and something else to a few others.

    What does it mean to you?

    If it seems to be giving the wrong impression to most (or even a significant minority) of the readers, I am going to have to paraphrase xtry51, the OP.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    I dont think anyone bought or buys an AR with the intent of shooting anyone with it. If they did then they probably should not have any firearms.

    An AR platform rifle is bought for the same reason any other firearm is: Sport, Hunting, Competition, Pleasure, Home/Self defense.

    Of course, but that does not mean it was purchased with the sole purpose of shooting someone.

    Yeah, I read it in the original thread, too bad that (some) people take one small sentence out of many paragraphs and fixate on only the one sentence, ignoring all else. It was probably a good thing you removed it.

    And now he has changed his signature. But to defend oneself from someone by buying an AR-15, has an implied use.
