Most of you do not know what you are talking about. The surplus guns that are affected have not been allowed to be imported for years. It is not really a new thing. How many of you even know what a NFA weapon is? It is a category of weapon such as a machinegun of shot barreled rifle. As an individual I can own these but when the paperwork is sent in I have to include a picture and fingerprints for a background check. If I were to do it with a trust I would not and there is no background check. How does that make sense? The reason so few crimes are committed with NFA firearms is partly due to the background check. With a trust you can have a criminal record and own a machinegun because no check is done. The cop that committed murders in CA used a trust to obtain NFA weapons, he did not even live in a state that allowed NFA weapons. Lots of over reacting to this change.
what part of shall not be infringed do YOU not understand????
As a cop I am sure he had access to what ever he wanted. Any other corporate killers?

In Albuquerque NM they did arrest a man for giving food to the homeless. He just received a settlement from the city for about $40,000.

All you people supporting the guy cutting in line must think that his behavior is fine. Not in my world. It is like stealing when the item is limited. Only a gun person would understand. Sure it was not right for the guy to pull his gun but the other guy is the one who started acting like a low life.
They are both low life losers. One should be banned from the store, the other should be banned, arrested and lose his 2nd amendment rights..
@Puravida- agreed that they are both low life losers and should both be banned from the store- yanking the guys ccw makes sense to me too- but taking away his 2nd amendment rights?? That is a little too far. He may be an idiot, but let him hunt and protect his home...
2nd amendment rights are god given. The government has no right to take them from anyone.
If you read the article it was not known if he even has a ccw. My guess is he does not.
2nd amendment is constitution given, not god given--whatever that means. The right to self survival is human nature, maybe that is what you meant. The ability to reason and use pragmatism is an ability that you can call 'god-given', and this ability may help you survive in situations without using a gun...like 99.99% of conflicts you will experience in life.
for people who said "2nd amendment rights are god given", do you agree then, that mentally disturbed people have also the right to have/carry gun(s)?
Oh yes it is ‘by our Creator’
And I’m guessing you do NOT understand WHY .
But I’m sure someone in the past ,has tried to reason with
you and gave up.
Then can we ‘by your comment’ , declare every person that
has the ‘mental disorder’ of ‘h0mosexuality’ have their rights stripped.?
1. by "..their rights stripped" you mean ALL rights or just gun rights?
2. labeling gay as mental disorder is still debatable
3. you still haven't answer my question: should we allow mentally disorder/crazy/psycho people to walk around with gun(s) as it's god given rights?
1. by “..their rights stripped” you mean ALL rights or just gun rights?
1) That a good question what rights.? If a person is not mentally
capable ,then what right /s should they be able to exercise. ?
2. labeling gay as mental disorder is still debatable.
2) That’s my point. If the society dictates what’s normal or not a mental problem .then it would have to be to what degree of a mental problem. Then a form a measuring . And then WHO would determine that scale.
3. you still haven’t answer my question: should we allow mentally disorder/crazy/psycho people to walk around with gun(s) as it’s god given rights?
3) I realize the reality of putting a firearm in the wrong hands .
But we don’t pre-crime in this country. If we are talking criminal insane . My thought on that is .if they caused that much severe pain and are that bad .they should be put to death .end of story. We use to hang people in this country for stealing a horse . I bet people would start re-thinking their actions and quit playing the crazy-card.
Also, we have a cast system now .The person with the biggest wallet and the most lawyers has a much better day in court . The poor man is crazy ..The rich man is ‘eccentric’ .
Bottom line ..Our system is broke.
Hence the background check. Verify whether the person is mentally stable and has no criminal records. How we determine that? well if you believe in science, mental disorders can be identified using scientific methodology. Will we miss filtering some "crazy" people in the process, yes. but better than nothing. Same with criminal records.
I don't see why background check and even to some extend gun license should not be introduced. we do regulate people driving car (with driving license), why not gun? people should pass background check and safety training to be able to carry one.
No one is supporting the guy who cut in line. You have words with someone who cuts in line, or get a manager of the store. You don't brandish your firearm. His cutting in line is not a direct threat on your life, and it is not stealing.

It ran in NewMexico.

This is not new, nor is it for overseas training. I first heard of this in the late 1980s. Back then they were doing it at night with live ammo for the snipers. Houston was one of the cities back then.
Just a few days ago there was a similar story about Tampa, FL.

The term “PDW” comes from the military. It is a weapon meant for use by support troops, to replace the handgun. Typically these PDWs are shorter and have limited range compared to the standard infantry rifle. Typical examples are the FN P90 and HK MP7. They never really caught on in the military for their intended role because of the additional expense. The ones in this story are most likely very short versions of the M-16 rifle. In this story they are taking the term personal defense a little too literally. They most likely be used in the assaulting role.

Fox is more interested in hiring liberals lately. If you are conservative they are not interested.

She must have been nervous because she made a sizable error. She holds up the AR-15 rifle and points to the vertical grip and says this is the pistol grip everyone is talking about. Not true, the pistol grip that is always referred to is the one behind the trigger.

I don’t see what the fuss is about, I see nothing odd about the pictures.

What a joke, that is not punishment. He should go to jail.

Beck should get his thoughts in order on this. Previously on FEMA he said we don’t need them saying our community will take care of eachother. I agree. On this issue of Secession Glenn said what are these people going to do without FEMA. Glen seems to be speaking before thinking the whole thing through, exactaly what he is saying about the secession people. He also said these people are crazy to put their name on a list but his name is on the top of the subversive list with his radio show.
we've ALL had our proverbial 'cages' rattled - he is afterall a mere 'human' too

More money wasted on stupid projects. We should be using available funds for current needs not some pie in the sky BS. The Military is famous for wasting money on these types of things. Many times the people that buy into these things have no military experience. These Generals that push desks love to spend our money.
This isn't actually a government project as much as I generally agree with your sentiment.
They have put the challenge out there for private businesses to attempt to create this for them, and presumably be rewarded with a lucrative government contract to produce it once they do. Still a useless project in my opinion, but not a government funded one.
