Is it just me, or does there seem to be a lot more media coverage of mass shootings involving the civilian AR-15 and its knock offs? We see the Sandy hook shootings were supposed to have been carried out with an AR! The most recent shooting in San Berdino........AR! The Kid in Portland at the high school.......AR! And many, many others that the media is all to quick to cover on our behalf! Why this "trend" I can see two possible answers to this............. First,Lets just call this what it is, FALSE FLAG! There have been mass shootings for almost a hundred years in the U.S. But we now have a very specific need/goal for demonizing the AR and its like! GUN CONTROL! And it all stared with the advent of the self loading rifles and pistols! Why did the government enact the first firearms ban? To keep us from getting our grubby hands on Mil spec weapons! They have chosen the most popular and prolific "assault rifle" in 'Merica and have made it the modern iteration of the old Tommy Gun we all fear! Why? What does the semi auto only AR do that cannot be done by any other weapon? Can any one honestly and with intelligence explain exactly what makes a rifle an "assault Weapon" No, they cannot, because it doesn't exist! A rock in my hand is an assault weapon if I hit you in the head with it! An old Ford truck is an Assault weapon if I run you over with it! Assault as an act committed by someone, not a type of device or object! Ever heard of an "Assault Base Ball Bat" probably not, but I can commit an assault with one! Has any one been thinking this? Why in the heck would any self respecting mass shooter care enough to procure (usually illegally) a high cost AR-15 semi auto only rifle? Why not go whole hawg and get a full auto of some kind? Why would you choose any thing less then one of the full autos that are so easy to get on the black market? Makes one wonder doesn't it? Think about this; A mass shooter(s) wishing to cause as much hurt and death as possible right........why not a full auto? why choose an AR? I can name many other rifles that meet the most demanding needs of the mass shooter and the AR is not on that list. Why not one of the AK variants like we saw used in the California bank robbery that we all saw live and in color? The second thing; I think what we might see here is the re Arming or up arming of 'Merica!!! Think about this; the biggest Sales of fire arms and ammo ever on record happen after one of these so called mass shootings! Think Fear! Also, what does the U.S. military issue our troops? The AR (M-16) type rifle! You see, the Second adm. states all persons shall be equipped with arms and munitions obtained by individuals ether on their own or issued by state armories for the defense of the nation in times of war and unrest! Putting the AR in the spot light sure makes a statement to the people, and the media drive the message home! We should all be obtaining our own AR rifles for the defense of this nation in times of war and strife! Is it just me thinking all this? The ammo manufactures have no problems keeping up with the very high demand! The gun manufactures have no problems producing arms faster then you and I can purchase them! The government knows this, yet they don't try and stop it at it's source? Simple answer, they do not have the man power to take our guns, and they only have records of who owns what going back to the late 80's when back ground checks first started. A national mandatory collection would be pointless, they have no idea how many arms exist here! Think about how many .22 rifles exist! The Jap's had a very real fear of launching an invasion of the united states because they knew that "behind every blade of grass was an american with a rifle" Makes you wonder what our Government thinks about the millions of firearms behind every blade of grass! The Government fears you and I because they know that We The People have the right and the ability to stand up to them, and all we lack is the motivation to act on this very real and immediate threat to our rights and freedoms that were bought and payed for in american blood!!! Please share your thoughts! WE REAP WHAT WE SOW, AND THE TIME OF THE HARVEST HAS COME! WILL YOU EAT OF THE HARVEST? OR WILL YOU FEEL THE PAIN OF HUNGER?
