"In celebration of Ebay’s new firearm parts policy we proudly offer the ONLY genuine, fully automatic ASSAULT ROCK!!!! Get yours fast before Ebay decides you can’t-it seems guns have some legal standing in the Constitution of the United States (not on Ebay). Our crack team of right-wing lawyer wantabees are looking for rock protection as you read this-besides it keeps them from esoteric pursuits such as trying to figure out why liberals exist. These incredible tools started out as just lousy old Colorado granite; but have been transformed into works of art worthy of, and able to induce shock and awe!" ...
 

AK47: the open-source weapon that took the world by storm

"Sixty years ago, a former tank sergeant named Mikhail Kalashnikov submitted an assault-rifle design to the Red Army for trials. It was selected as the new personal weapon for most Soviet soldiers, and designated Automat Kalashnikova 1947 – AK47 for short. That designation went out of official use in 1959, but to this day 'AK47' is probably the world's most widely-known gun name. Just as open-source Linux - the 'communist' software, according to Steve Ballmer - has made Linus Torvalds famous, the genuinely communist open-source AK has given Mikhail Kalashnikov a profile at least as high. The AK47 and its successor designs are the most widely-used firearms on the face of the planet." ...

"Before long, champions of the Second Amendment could be learning a bitter truth: You win a battle and lose it at the same time."

"Gun advocates may be within sight of one of their grand objectives – a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that the right to bear arms belongs to you and me, not the government and not the National Guard. But if they do win, some of them may be startled by the next question: What difference does it make?" ...

"OK. Let's say this maverick [individual rights] view of the Second Amendment wins out in the Supreme Court, as well it might."

"Some gun-rights advocates might imagine that such a legal triumph would make existing restrictions on firearms fall like dominoes. ..." ...

"There are those among us who would suggest that the Smith & Wesson Model 40 Centennial revolver is the best all-around hideaway revolver--not only that S&W ever made but that anyone ever made. Although I wouldn't be tempted to lay quite so lavish praise onto this petite, five-shot, double-action-only five-shooter, I must admit that I'd be hard pressed to argue the point either. It certainly is a world-class snubby by any measure. And it is a model that any well-acquitted gun guy should consider to be a mandatory must-have." ...

"Recently, there was a high profile home invasion in Connecticut where a mother and two daughters were killed. The husband survived the vicious attack. It happened in a well- to-do, relatively crime free neighborhood, to a respected medical doctor and his family. ..."

"One national talk show had three experts discussing the case and home invasions in general. After about 20 minutes of conversation that really was quite superficial, I came away with a few steps people can do to help themselves. However, the general consensus seemed that there wasn't too much we can do to stop home invasions. I was taken aback as this simply is not true. There are many positive actions we can take to protect ourselves." ...

"Three cheers and a replacement bottle of fish sauce for Ross Vannarith, the owner of a Methuen liquor store who fought off a would-be robber with the help of his son and a bottle of the salty condiment."

"Vannarith had just returned to the Methuen Package Store ... when he saw a man pointing a gun at his daughter behind the register. Vannarith crept up behind the man and wrestled him to the ground, where he and his son beat him into submission with ... a bottle of fish sauce. ..." ...

"Police have not charged the Vannariths with any crime related to the beating. Nor should they. People have a right to defend their lives and property." ...

Submitter's Note: Since that is their right, how about 'allowing' them to exercise it with the most effective self-defense tool in existence, instead of a bottle of fish sauce?

"In a city where gun violence has become an all too common part of daily life, these shootings were enough to chill even the most hardened residents: Four young friends shot execution-style in a schoolyard just days before they were to head to college." [emphasis added]

"Three were killed after being forced to kneel against a wall [behind an elementary school] and then shot in the head at close range Saturday night, police said. A girl was found slumped near some bleachers 30 feet away, a gunshot wound to the head but still alive." ...

"Too many times businesses are happy to see their competitors close, not in this case. The loss of Blue Lakes Sporting Goods left a large void in our community. Floyd Hazen was remarkable in the aspect of running a business, in many ways I would glean what I could from his management and marketing styles. Floyd was also very outspoken and took full advantage of his very large message sign in front of the building to express his views. In fact during the Clinton/ Lewinsky fiasco, I would make a trip down Blue Lakes Boulevard in Twin Falls just to see what Floyd would have to say for that week. His wife Becky is also a great person diminutive in size but large in opinion and in character." ...

"Because a conviction of possession of a firearm without an identification card can mean two years in jail, the Ethics Commission determined that Inostroza used his role as a police officer to give an 'unwarranted privilege of substantial value' to the councilor's daughter." ...
