What I wrote: part of that is used solely to redistribute my wealth to others in the form of welfare.

There are legitimate uses of taxation. National Defense is clearly one of the legitimate uses as denoted in the Constitution.

Welfare / Food Stamps, etc., are not appropriate at a Federal Level.

Try trolling someone else, dumbass.

The remainder of that statement is: "The only thing it deprives him of is the ability to enslave others by means of such appropriations."

... which does not make the statement true, as communism does indeed deprive the man of his ability to reap the fruits of his labor.

Therefore, my point remains.

But nuance? It's so European... Why not just reach for your gun?

Reach? It's on my hip at all times dude.

Here's one: "Communism deprives no man of the ability to appropriate the fruits of his labour."

This is provably, and demonstrably, false. The state currently takes 35% of my income, part of that is used solely to redistribute my wealth to others in the form of welfare.

This, however, is a true statement:

Communism deprives all men of the ability to appropriate the fruits of his labor. As a result, the incentive for man to work is negated, and the only thing that communism spreads is abject poverty.

Actually, Brass Fetcher uses 20% gelatin, whereas FBI requires only 10% gelatin for penetration testing. So Brass Fetcher's youtube page is a terrific resource.

I actually started loading Remington Golden Sabers instead of Hornady Critical Max in my Glock based on the ballistics tests on Brass Fetcher's channel.

If stupidity hurt, Stevens would require a morphine drip.

As far as why the AR-15 is so popular... everyone who ones one has their reasons that they like it, so I'll give you mine:

+ Accuracy. The hole in the paper is typically *exactly* where I wanted to put it, and if it isn't, it was my fault.
+ Recoil. The .223 Rem / 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge in an AR-15 has very little recoil. Women and some children can fire this weapon standing up. (Though our idiot VP says "Get a shotgun", I've seen too many women who were unable to handle a 12 gauge... but the AR-15? No problem.)
+ Rail system. The AR platform is very customizable with scopes, lights... some day, I'll trick mine out, but in the mean time I can still shoot a tick off a dog's ass at 100 yards with it with the iron sights. ;)

+ The .223 Rem / 5.56x45mm NATO round. Simply put, against a human target, this round is devastating. For self/home defense, the 30 round magazine allows for you to miss a few times and still put a hurting on the bad guy, and the round itself tumbles and fragments causing intense damage to internal organs despite being a comparably small projectile to even the often maligned 9mm round. This round will also take down smaller animals -- deer, wild hogs -- while some states will not let you hunt with the .223 cartridge, the .223 round WILL drop a deer.

(Not as reliably as that .30-06 rifle I'm hoping to get for my birthday, but it's still effective.)

Consider this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

And compare to my choice of handgun caliber, the mighty .45 ACP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

See the difference? It's breathtaking.


Of course, for pure devastation you need a .50 caliber rifle round: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

So why do the gun grabbers hate it?

1. It's black, and most liberals are secretly racist
2. It's "scary" looking

In summation: accurate, low recoil, customizable, effective cartridge against both human and deer. AR-15's are AWESOME.

Stellar rays prove fibbing never pays. Embezzlement is another matter.
