Winds of revolution?

Has anyone else noticed that not only the rhetoric but general conversation has changed for the worse since the Newtown shooting? There have always been some crazy ideas coming from the extreme left and right but lately I've noticed that insanity seems to be infecting average citizens as well. People every where are talking rebellion, in bars, restaurants, shoping centers, online news sites, chat rooms, fitness clubs, the list could go on forever. From my observations it appears that the people are angry about health care, taxes, the economy, but mostly its gun rights and all the talk of restrictions and confiscation by the elected officals. Could an attack on the second amendment be the catalist that could launch this great nation into an armed rebellion?

Yup,the .222 round will break a budget.

I have a couple of K-Bars in my collection, one from the Korean conflict and one from Nam, since they are both military and designed to inflict maximum damage then by your logic they would be military assault weapons , right?

BTW, just so you will know It was the very first M-16s (a banned weapon)that suffered from bullet yaw and it was a design flaw and over heating that was the cause. It was eliminated in the later models by lining the barrel with chrome and changing them to burst fire instead of full auto. It was also a 5.56 nato round that they fired and not a 223 Rem, although the rounds are very similar , they are different. A weapon that is chambered for 223 will not fire 5.56 properly, however a weapon that is chambered for 5.56 will fire either one just fine.

Virtually all hunting bullets are designed to do as much damage as possible. And as for your tumbling bullet comment, Thanks, that's one of the funniest things I have read in a long time, I must have laughed for ten min. or more. I even passed it around work so my co-workers could have a chuckle too.

That's a dead give away liberal trait. Wanting to suppress opposing views. So you feel a 5.56 is deadlier than a 22 Hornet? I don't think so. They are equally bad news to get hit with. IMO.

Mod , dont you think the feel of the forums is much improved with the defection of the hate crowd ?

Mod , the whole point of the original ban of high capacity mags was at least some could escape while the killer reloads !

Nope , one is designed to cause as much damage as possible by barrel twist and bullet design(the round tumbles on contact) . Where as a normal 22 (40 grain)is lighter and hasnt the muzzle velocity, while the Hornet (is only 30-35 grains) and cant carry its energy very far . No One Needs a Military Assault Weapon !

A Ruger M 77 also comes in 223 and you can also get one in black, I have even seen some adapted to a detachable mag. So is it the semi auto part that bothers you?

A 223 is a 22 cal bullet. Yes a 22 Hornet will work almost as well at 400 but they cost 2 times as much to shoot and when you add in the barrel burnout factor that a 22 Hornet has you can expect it to have around half the round count life of a 223.

When you consider the damage that round can do, and combine a high capacity mag,you can eliminate a threat pronto.

You see theres the difference , ones a hunting rifle and one was made to kill people !

A 22 AR No , not out to 400 yds ! A 223 AR yeah , but that could just as well been a Ruger 77 . Do you see the difference ? I got a real nice Model 77 in 22 hornet that would get it done and it isnt a military assault weapon or one of its varietys !

Not any more, I used to raise Half-Runners for extra cash but I just don't have the time anymore.

You must have a hellava big garden.

I haven't seen any markers in the fertilizer but I did notice the price is a lot higher and I have to sign for it now. I'm not sure how this would deter someone who is determined to break the law but it sure did put a dent in my gardening.
