  1. One of the problems is that equality of opportunity has been turned into equality of outcomes, which is in no way just.
  2. I don;t think it's an argument, I think we have the exact same view point with different ways of articulating it. I think the pressing matter is how do we fix it? The Constitutional solution is a repeal of the NFA of 34, GCA of 68, and the passage of an amendment reinforcing the Second and Tenth Amendments with a Supremacy clause. I hate federal supremacy clauses but given how draconian some states firearms laws are in this instance I feel it's almost a necessity. The odds of this happening in our lifetimes? I'm not counting on it. If anything I feel that the growing socialist population on the left are emboldened enough to completely chuck the frogs in a pot method, capitalize on a crisis, and go full tilt boogie, damn the consequences.
  3. If the dems get enough to pass some major gun control like that it would be with a supermajority again and with a sitting dem president the results will be a LOT worse than just 4473s being turned into a registration database. Think mandatory registration on all arms, a ban on homemade firearms and kits, no online sales and background checks to buy ammo, and a list of banned (as in must turn in for destruction) firearms that makes the AWB of 94 list look weak by comparison, and felonies for failure to comply. And they'll wait (or some would even suggest stage) a huge crisis to help the sheeple swallow that poison pill.
  4. To the Leftistas anything right of Marx is fascist.
  5. No, and yes. This is where "never let a good crisis go to waste "started.
  6. Megatron I'm going to recommend a book for ya: The Hologram of Liberty by Ken Royce (aka Boston T. Party): https://www.amazon.com/Hologram-Liberty-Constitutions-Shocking-Government-ebook/dp/B00NRJEAN4 It's worth the read, and passing around. By and far among everything I have in my shelf that one stays loaned out the most.
  7. At this point in history is reconciliation between all of these opposing factions even possible? We've had an entire generation plus the majority of whom have been indoctrinated to believe socialism is the greatest thing on the planet, and are keenly unaware of it's massive failures and genocides. Plus frankly the majority of the people from any given faction are sleeping sheeple, happy with their breads and circuses as long as their iPhones work.
  8. I'm not referring to singular political ideologies. I am referring to how the majority of people in states think. How much does the average Georgian have in common with the average Southern Californian? A Texan with A New Yorker? It's not as simple as Pubs vs. Dems. It's asymmetric and when it gets down to it. Attached is what is referred to as the CW2 cube developed by Matt Bracken. If you care to read the article it can be found here: https://westernrifleshooters.blogspot.com/2010/07/bracken-cw2-cube-mapping-meta-terrain.html It's not going to be us vs. them. It's going to be us/those guys, these guys etc. vs. them/those guys, those other guys, etc.
  9. I would argue that the Confederacy did not totally lose the Civil War, at least not in the long game sense. It's 150 some odd years later and where winning a war could not prevail, history has. The current factions as they are now cannot coexist because they are headed in different directions, whether ethnic, cultural, religious, racial, or political. Leftists now realize they cannot coexist with us, and we cannot have one leader for both factions. It's a rebuke of the basest kind to the northern ideology of a big centralized government. I love the republic, but as a realist I hold little hope for its restoration in any way we truly want. As the days go by things become more and more balkanized.
  10. You guys know proceed 4473s get destroyed by the FFL after 20 years and nogo ones get destroyed after 5 right? Likewise in many stats of you have a CHL there's no NICS interaction involved. The turn over mandate is if you go out of business, then you are required to turn in anything younger
  11. I've read that, it's a good synopsis, but it is a CGSC Thesis and not comprehensive. For those that want it for free: https://fas.org/man/eprint/marques.pdf
  12. 1-2 MOA with surplus is acceptable. Yeah when they were running $500 without the optic that was a helluva deal, I snagged one and picked up a POSP scope from Kalinka and was still well under a grand. Market demand has driven the prices up on them, no doubt about it. Same thing with the WASR-10Bs (the RPK clones). I snagged a couple when they were $399 and turned one into a Tabuk clone. Now if you find one they are way more than that. In the next few years we're gong to see some of the newer rounds gain bigger market shares, especially with the AR crowd. With SOCOM adopting 6.5 and the folks warming up to 224 along with the rifles starting to be produced by the budget companies I think those calibers are going to become much more mainstream.
  13. For collectibility: Cool. Practicality? No thank you. I'm willing to bet this thing hits the market at around $1400, that's a lot of money to build a really decent rifle in a more capable caliber.
