Some people are going to be reading this because came @me in a forum, or Facebook or on Twitter. If you want to refute what I have to say, link me your blog post in the comments. If you can’t be bothered putting this much effort into this discussion, please stop talking to me. Seriously. I’m done. I don’t want to hear you.
If you’re here because I posted this link to you, then go get your pen and calculator, because we’re going Grade 6 math here.
Some folks are going to be here because Google or some other mechanism brought you here. Please read with an open mind. I’ve done my research and writing.
I’m done watching kids and women die because of men who think guns are “required”. I’m mad at people who argue with me that they “need” guns, more than everyone else needs safety.
What does the “2A” actually say? You probably don’t know, if you’re an American “2A” enthusiast, so let me quote it to you:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
No where there does it say you have to personally carry AR15s firing 5.56×45mm NATO. No where there does it say that NATO 7.62 is an excellent personal urban carry bullet.
Who the hell am I and what do I know, you ask? I’ve trained with, fired, or been to war with everything from .22LR through NATO 5.56 & 7.62. up to 76mm and Harpoon anti-ship missiles.
