    Yes, people kill people. It just so happens that people with semi-automatic rifles do so more efficiently.

    Only snowflakes get triggered.

    I fired an AR 15. With ear protection it is quiet,
    and it hardly bumped my shoulder.

    Someone on the news said he fired one and it gave him
    PTSD!,,

    Honestly, people in America!,

    And on this side it is 2 am bye.

    Let's see my military days I've fired a M16. An M-60 (the pig)

    A grenade launcher. (M203 and Law) Also threw a grenade.

    The SAW. (Squad automatic weapon)

    Carried a Desert Eagle.

    And I can attest that none of them had autonomously jumped up and killed anybody.

    Does your penis feels larger after knocking down yet another strawman? I can reassure you about it if you prefer.

    I don't know why we bother so much with drunk drivers. They nearly always get to their destination without causing any damage to anybody.

    Yes. It feels quite large as a matter of fact.

    Manly in fact. The way it should be.

    As if one incident proves anything. But the snowflake right gets jollies out of things that don't matter while ignoring mass killings with such weapons.

    He was asking about the real one, not the mag fed surrogate.

    Also "triggering" refers to panic attacks due to PTSD, something that many war veterans and rape victims suffer from.

    Sounds like the over the top theatrics of those supposedly offended were more motivated by politics and headlines than any real reaction to supposed mental or emotional harm. It would be difficult to imagine lawmakers in charge of passing laws for or against an item honestly going into hysterics over viewing the item.

    I wonder if the innocent young men that were arrested and said to be part of a group called "The Base" will ultimately turn out to be much like the "Viper Militia" arrests, it will be interesting to follow that story to it's end.

    That's right: guns just help them do it.

    The sort of person who would bring an AR-15 to a Council meeting is the sort of person whose judgement is so poor that he shouldn't be allowed access to firearms.

    How exactly is his judgment poor here?

    Nothing happened.

    He exemplified a statement about 2nd amendment rights and exercised it.

    Snowflake socialist Democrats made a big whoop about it.

    Even police officers were there.

    So what exactly happened that was poor judgment?

    You wouldn't think so by the way the socialist Democrats react each time about it.

    When I fired that AR rifle I suddenly began to grow
    a penis! At each savage gun-blast it grew longer!
    It was like Pinoccios nose with one nostril!


    Good thing, I had Hello Kitty stickers on my moped, so
    I was back to normal when I got home.

    I've also noticed that watching the movie The Fault in Our Stars does the same trick too, but it can make people cry so be warned.
