Real talk though... I don't like the idea of anyone "banning" anything. And for the same reason that I don't like the idea of anyone "mandating" anything either. I think it's a bad idea to do that shit to anyone under 18 who can't be an "adult" and legally make decisions for themselves, but who the hell am I to tell someone else they CAN'T do something if they are absolutely determined to do it and have thought it through to their own satisfaction. I don't like the idea of the government shoving the parents aside from having any say so in the matter. But if the parents and the kid and the doctors all agree that it's not a horrible idea, then what business is it of anyone else to step in front of them and go, "NO! YOU CAN'T!"

Nobody is gonna tell me "No you can't." I'm an American, God dammit.

Of course I don't like it either out of principle. No one should. But it's combative against a movement that's gaining momentum that I'm wholeheartedly against.

But ya, if you're not a minor do whatever.

Yeah... Key word is children, and it's on the state level. Much different than something being banned on the federal level to people of all ages.

Juan Williams' job is to give the best argument the left has, but when there's little to no argument he has the toughest job on MSM:


https://youtu.be/Ld1qxVc1_g4

Sorry to blow everyone up with faux, the first one is just a clip of Biden with no opinion haha. And the 2nd is actually a decent segment.

Jen "Circle Back" Psaki's job is harder. She has to defend an obvious disaster constantly. That may change though if they stop allowing people like Doocy to ask questions. Juan usually defenda the left but sometimes kinda takes to the aidelines if it's too radical or indefensible.

Edit: that clip almost changed my mind LOL


https://youtu.be/01Hry1rJn7w

Arkansas governor vetoed the gender reassignment bill. Cites "limited government" as reasoning, and Tucker presses him. It certainly does seem like permanently altering your physical and mental development in a way that is still largely experimental is a bit more serious than drinking a beer.

Apparently the prosecution's own expert witness stated that Chauvin had the authority TAZE Floyd and chose a lesser form of restraint. Defense hasn't even had their witnesses yet....


https://youtu.be/Dvd6OO_YnXY

Prosecution changes claim from "knee on neck" to "knee on neck AND BACK" after new photos emerge.

Wow.

Banning pistol braces and reducing magazine capacity is step 1 to ban pistols. They're far more effective for shooting up a hallway and most places indoors. Mentally ill shooters choose an AR because it gives them 10x the attention and media coverage.

Banning pistol braces acknowledges that semi-auto 9mm is as deadly as .223. All the brace does is make it more scary. It'll likely snowball into more handgun restrictions.

Pretty sure it only applies to AR and AK variant pistols and that a glock with a brace is ok. I might be wrong though. Not sure what they say about Mac-11's or Tec-9's (that often come with braces) either as those guns have never really interested me (they fire pistol rounds like 380acp and 9mm, are used in inner city crime fairly often, and the auto versions shoot more rapidly than fully auto m16's and AK's (I'm referring to the semi-auto versions of these guns.... Probably treated just like glocks tbh).. But regardless, what they are doing is just really illogical.

SBR (short barrelled rifle).... NFA item (heavily restricted like silencers)
AR pistol with brace.... Soon to be NFA item.
AR pistol without brace.... Non-NFA item, just as legal as a glock, easiest AR to conceal by far, used in crime more than all other variants because of this.

I don't agree with any of the restrictions, but it would make more sense to say:
1. Barrels must be 14" or more
2. All semi-auto rifles MUST have a brace.

This would make AR's harder to conceal without drastically reducing their effectiveness for home defense. But all they care about is making changes that won't stir the pot TOO badly. They want to prohibit law abiding citizens from having the #1 weapon for home defense. Not only is it the most popular but also the easiest to aim and shoot, which makes it the best option for putting women on an even playing field against multiple male assailants. It's about demoralization... Furthering the acceptance of tyranny. "Man, we are so far outgunned, what's the use? Better to just fall in line" is the narrative they slowly want patriots to adopt. It just makes the citizenry more malleable in general.

Yeah, a fully auto Tec9 will empty a mag as fast or faster than a mac10, which is a stupid high rate of fire for something so small. Without a forward grip, they're hard to keep a tight group with at distance. Mine was full auto, but I modded it to be semi to keep it more legal and easier to use. I never use it anymore though. The big long mag is cool and the idea of having to reload less is great, but I find it easier to hit shit with a regular semi auto like my Walther ppk 38.

There's really no need to shoot as fast as it does full auto. And if you use it like that, you gotta make sure you use the expensive top quality ammo or else it's gonna jam a lot. I'm serious, it'll zip through a full 32rd clip in 3 seconds. That shit is too expensive to do these days.
