The AR15 and The Liberal assault on the Second Amendment continues. The Progressives seize every heartbreaking incident to turn it into a political opportunity. This time it is the terrible and senseless Orlando night club shooting.
The Liberal mantra is the end justifies the means which is exemplified by this famous quote attributed to Rahm Emanuel "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before".
The Liberals have always despised the Second Amendment and have over the decades never ceased their relentless attacks to regulate, modify, register, and eliminate the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Part of the Democrat fight has been to demonize particular firearms such as the AR15.
I was a late comer to the AR and had no interest in it until I watched a documentary about AR Stoner the engineer who designed the AR15. I was so impressed after watching that hour long program that I went to my local gun shop to see it. As luck would have it they were running a sale so I bought one. I found through experience that the AR15 is an excellent firearm. It is easy to take apart, easy to clean, and surprisingly very accurate. It is customizable with various stocks, grips, optics, and it is easy to change caliber. Compared to other rifles the ammunition is relatively inexpensive. The AR15 is just a great weapon. I like it so much that I think it should be adopted as the national weapon. Now that would cause the Liberals to go ballistic. The problems we have in America today are not firearms but the Progressive Liberals who want to fundamentally transform America. If you don't like America as the founding fathers envisioned then go to a Marxist, Socialist, Communist country that is more suited to your ideology.
Here is a video that counters the Liberal political assault on the Second Amendment and specifically the AR15. It is produced by the NRA and features a veteran of the Navy SEALS.
