New Guns, Just Because
« on: January 18, 2020, 02:31:27 PM »
No, Chrisstulsa is not hitting the 'roids and pumping out a pair of 22 inch pythons. No, real guns. Yankee made. Really Yankee, like New Hampshire Yankee Yankee.

Looks like General Dynamics has one as well. I guess SOCOM put out a request for designs.

Either way, giggity.

You have to have about that much just to shoot the thing.

Fine piece of equipment.

Here in Ireland after multiple forms for licences, a shotgun or bolt action rifle can be got. Handguns are almost entirely banned, as criminals were using them, and similar pretexts. Thanks to this wise 2008 law criminals stopped using them after they were banned.

Seriously?

Our criminals in the US tend to ignore our gun laws.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Yes, criminals do not tend to give heed to laws, and I was sarcastic, but trying a little bit of a jab at the illogicality of anti-gun campaigners.  ;D
