    He does. That's why he and his brain-brothers want this to be a CULTURAL thing: gunz as (un)acceptable as smoking is now.

    Change the culture to be acceptable to whiny, SJW sows - but universally - and their Marxist march can proceed unimpeded.

    They'll never stop until they are composting in a grave. Be sure to have the means to assist them in getting there.

    Is there any variety of firearm that wasn't first developed as a military and/or police weapon?

    The deadliest feature of any weapon including a gun is the person behind it.

    I think....though I may be wrong, that there was a point in time when certain firearms were designed and built for the 'gentlemen' of the time.

    Yes: most of them.

    Private/civilian firearms development has always preceded military adoption, until recent laws made certain firearms impractical for ordinary people to buy.

    Time for the SC to straighten them out on the civilian use thing.

    Dick is more trusting of tyranny than the Founding Fathers.

    I suddenly feel the urge to go get that 1911 I've been drooling over for a while now.

    That surprises me. I can see that new types usually reached the civilian market first, but I always put that down to the slowness of military procurement. I thought most of the major firearm types were either developed explicitly for somebody's army, or were developed partly in hopes of selling to somebody's army. (By 'type' I mean the general action or design: SA revolver, DA revolver, lever-action, bolt-action, etc.)

    Could you really be considered a collector without one?

    Semi-automatics have been around for over a century. Where were the problems decades ago? Oh that's right there weren't any. The problem is poor parenting, indoctrination into the blame everyone else society and take no responsibility for ones actions etc.

    If the founding fathers had thought that gay marriage would have been accepted, they would have placed a ban in the constitution. Ditto for abortion. We can play "if the founding fathers thought...." long ago. The founding fathers also thought slavery was OK.

    Those of us with a bit more mileage remember when it was "we aren't going after your rifles, its handguns we want to ban" - and the Brady group or its ancestor was named the "National coalition to ban handguns".

    Good thing they didn't know about the puckle gun and had no idea that there would ever be any advances in firearms and other things too.;)

    Few people have ever been so deserving of Ball Cancer. Maybe some rectal cancer to go with it.

    Be nice. Ball cancer is something you can die from.

    Painful non-life-threatening ass cancer. That's what I usually wish on people. ;)
