Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Pregnant Woman Turns Weapon of War on Home Invaders

 

ConstitutionWhy do you need an AR-style rifle?

  1. None of your [Constitutionally protected NSFW language] business.
  2. To stop an invasion…of our homes. God made men but Colt made an eight-months pregnant woman equal to two men armed with pistols.

“They came in heavily hooded and masked. As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” [Jeromy King] said….

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see not all Democrats have lost their minds after Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet begs 2020 candidates not to campaign on expanding the Supreme Court. They also hammer Beto O’Rourke and other liberals for using the New Zealand mosque massacre to push a ban on the AR-15. And they defend Chelsea Clinton after progressives accuse her of facilitating the New Zealand massacre with her critique of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

(Note: This was originally meant to be a comment on @frontseatcat ‘s post http://ricochet.com/499018/try-everything-president-trump/ but it grew out of control. I’ve been thinking we needed the multilayered defense against the current push to ban/limit certain weapons laid out fully anyways, so here it is — or at least the first couple layers.) This first part […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America blast congressional Republicans over their embrace of scrapping the adoption tax credit and for considering an end to the property tax deduction. They also slam the TSA for failing miserably yet again in the latest test designed to see if our blue-shirted friends can actually stop guns, knives and bombs from getting through checkpoints. And they get a kick out of USA Today suggesting you could add a chainsaw bayonet to an AR-15 rifle.

shutterstock_108509453Every time a criminal murders innocents with an AR-style rifle, people ask what other purpose such firearms serve. As I’ll illustrate below, if you have a particular purpose — or even an aesthetic preference — you’ll find what you need in the AR.

In fact, one of the primary reasons the AR is so popular is the immense amount of customization available in sights, barrel lengths, optics, grips, flashlights, lasers, disco balls, magazine capacity, colors, stocks, and caliber. Indeed, it’s important to understand that there is no single manufacturer of the AR rifle, and that nearly everyone — from a local gunsmith who creates custom rifles to mass-market behemoths like Smith and Wesson — offers some version of it these days.

From Hillary Clinton’s speech following the Orlando shootings: Now, I know some will say that assault weapons and background checks are totally separate issues having nothing to do with terrorism. Well, in Orlando and San Bernardino terrorists used assault weapons, the AR-15. And they used it to kill Americans. That was the same assault weapon […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Should We Be Worried About the AR-15 Ammunition Ban?

 

Conservatives who defend the Second Amendment right to bear arms (among whom I count myself) are raising the alarm that the Obama Administration is trying to threaten the AR-15 by banning its ammunition. Apparently, the ATF has announced its intention to prohibit what a news article describes as “inexpensive 5.56 M855 ammo, commonly called lightgreen tips” because it can pierce the armor commonly worn by local police.

I ask the Ricochet community to explain what this ammunition is. It is only with that knowledge that can we judge whether this is a true threat to Second Amendment rights.
