You keep believing that those kids were "pushed" into doing this.

But they are not going to go away. Even when it's no longer "front page news" & the next inevitable massacre occurs that replaces them, they will still be on social media keeping the movement alive, & making sure the midterms have them going to the polls to vote the NRA backed Congress filth out. :sablier:
Your post indicates, as I suspected, that you are not very old and probably closer to the teenage ranks than adulthood. Come back when you have something to post.
LOL! I wish, but as usual, your "instincts" are completely off kilter, aluannie. You see, i don't rely on any one news source to spoon feed me what I want to hear that validates my fears like you do. I do not have a facebook account, or on instagram, or periscope, or on any other of the various platforms; but common sense is what I posted.

What teenager do you see, EVER, who doesn't have their smart phone attached to the end of their fingertips? How do you think the hundreds of thousands of youth that showed up yesterday, or the nation wide school walkouts get the numbers that they did? Apparently, as I heard on TV yesterday -there will be another national walkout on the anniversary of the Columbine massacre.

Like I said, these kids aren't going away. Better get used to it. :throw-rocks:
These kids don't even know what an assault rifle is. And it seems like most of the adults that encourage this do either. The say "assault style". So, because it looks like an assault weapon it needs to be banned?
17 dead children in less than 7 minutes. Ya, I think they know what it is. 20 dead children & 6 of their reachers dead in less time than that. Ya, I think they knew.

How about Eric Stoner, the designer of that weapon of war; do you think he didn't know? YA, I think he did & so does his family.

The AR-15 is the most talked about gun in America.

But the AR-15’s creator died before the weapon became a popular hit and his family has never spoken out.

Until now.

"Our father, Eugene Stoner, designed the AR-15 and subsequent M-16 as a military weapon to give our soldiers an advantage over the AK-47,” the Stoner family told NBC News late Wednesday. "He died long before any mass shootings occurred. But, we do think he would have been horrified and sickened as anyone, if not more by these events."
[...]
But their comments add unprecedented context to their father’s creation, shedding new light on his intentions and adding firepower to the effort to ban weapons like the AR-15. The comments could also bolster a groundbreaking new lawsuit, which argues that the weapon is a tool of war — never intended for civilians.

Eugene Stoner would have agreed, his family said.

The ex-Marine and "avid sportsman, hunter and skeet shooter" never used his invention for sport. He also never kept it around the house for personal defense. In fact, he never even owned one.

And though he made millions from the design, his family said it was all from military sales.

"After many conversations with him, we feel his intent was that he designed it as a military rifle," his family said, explaining that Stoner was "focused on making the most efficient and superior rifle possible for the military."

He designed the original AR-15 in the late 1950s, working on it in his own garage and later as the chief designer for ArmaLite, a then small company in southern California. He made it light and powerful and he fashioned a new bullet for it — a .223 caliber round capable of piercing a metal helmet at 500 yards.

The Army loved it and renamed it the M16.

But after Stoner’s death in 1997, at the age of 74, a semi-automatic version of the AR-15 became a civilian bestseller, too, spawning dozens of copy-cat weapons. The National Rifle Association has taken to calling it “America’s rifle.”

The bullets that tore through the Pulse nightclub in Orlando were Stoner’s .223 rounds, fired from a AR-15 spin off made by Sig Sauer.

Do you have any more talking points that the NRA wants you to pass along?
I give up. People like you refuse to be educated about the civilian AR15. You call it an "assault style". So you are going by what it looks like. You do realize the AR goes from safe to fire. Not semi auto.
Really? I don't a G__ D___ what they "look like" & the fact those weapons can mow down a multitude of human beings in mere seconds is all the education I need. Or am I wrong that they are NOT capable of doing that? I am tired of people like you defending your right to own something that can take my right to live away because it's "fun" & goes bang-bang.
And I am tired of people like you wanting to take my Constitutional right away because you are afraid of an inanimate object.

It's not about what it looks like. lol The NRA talking points are to call it "cosmetics," but we all know those "cosmetic" items have a function.

Do you think that AR-15 being the overwhelming choice for these shootings is merely a coincidence? No, it's about functionality and efficiency. So maybe we need to take a look at that and address it. Or we can just stick out heads back in the sand and pretend none of it ever happened or will happen again.

Consider that you can do the same with an shotgun. The issue with the AR15 isn't that it's an 'assault' weapon, but that the way it's designed allows 3rd party manufactures to create an unlimited number of modifications, such as the bump stock.

17 dead children in less than 7 minutes. Ya, I think they know what it is. 20 dead children & 6 of their reachers dead in less time than that. Ya, I think they knew.

How about Eric Stoner, the designer of that weapon of war; do you think he didn't know? YA, I think he did & so does his family.

The AR-15 is the most talked about gun in America.

But the AR-15’s creator died before the weapon became a popular hit and his family has never spoken out.

Until now.

"Our father, Eugene Stoner, designed the AR-15 and subsequent M-16 as a military weapon to give our soldiers an advantage over the AK-47,” the Stoner family told NBC News late Wednesday. "He died long before any mass shootings occurred. But, we do think he would have been horrified and sickened as anyone, if not more by these events."

But their comments add unprecedented context to their father’s creation, shedding new light on his intentions and adding firepower to the effort to ban weapons like the AR-15. The comments could also bolster a groundbreaking new lawsuit, which argues that the weapon is a tool of war — never intended for civilians.

Eugene Stoner would have agreed, his family said.

The ex-Marine and "avid sportsman, hunter and skeet shooter" never used his invention for sport. He also never kept it around the house for personal defense. In fact, he never even owned one.

And though he made millions from the design, his family said it was all from military sales.

"After many conversations with him, we feel his intent was that he designed it as a military rifle," his family said, explaining that Stoner was "focused on making the most efficient and superior rifle possible for the military."

He designed the original AR-15 in the late 1950s, working on it in his own garage and later as the chief designer for ArmaLite, a then small company in southern California. He made it light and powerful and he fashioned a new bullet for it — a .223 caliber round capable of piercing a metal helmet at 500 yards.

The Army loved it and renamed it the M16.

But after Stoner’s death in 1997, at the age of 74, a semi-automatic version of the AR-15 became a civilian bestseller, too, spawning dozens of copy-cat weapons. The National Rifle Association has taken to calling it “America’s rifle.”

The bullets that tore through the Pulse nightclub in Orlando were Stoner’s .223 rounds, fired from a AR-15 spin off made by Sig Sauer.

Do you have any more talking points that the NRA wants you to pass along?
I give up. People like you refuse to be educated about the civilian AR15. You call it an "assault style". So you are going by what it looks like. You do realize the AR goes from safe to fire. Not semi auto.
Really? I don't a G__ D___ what they "look like" & the fact those weapons can mow down a multitude of human beings in mere seconds is all the education I need. Or am I wrong that they are NOT capable of doing that? I am tired of people like you defending your right to own something that can take my right to live away because it's "fun" & goes bang-bang.
Consider that you can do the same with an shotgun. The issue with the AR15 isn't that it's an 'assault' weapon, but that the way it's designed allows 3rd party manufactures to create an unlimited number of modifications, such as the bump stock.
How many shotguns are designed to take quick change multi round magazines?

My favorite trap shotgun does.

Is six rounds its limit? Can it take high capacity mags for its origibal design like an AR15 can? By that I mean 10 or more? How about 30 rounds? How about 100 round drums?

Yes, it can take high capacity mags. And consider that using 00 buckshot means the receiver is being hit with 7+ 30 cal bullets at 40 yards.

You keep believing that those kids were "pushed" into doing this.

But they are not going to go away. Even when it's no longer "front page news" & the next inevitable massacre occurs that replaces them, they will still be on social media keeping the movement alive, & making sure the midterms have them going to the polls to vote the NRA backed Congress filth out. :sablier:
Your post indicates, as I suspected, that you are not very old and probably closer to the teenage ranks than adulthood. Come back when you have something to post.
LOL! I wish, but as usual, your "instincts" are completely off kilter, aluannie. You see, i don't rely on any one news source to spoon feed me what I want to hear that validates my fears like you do. I do not have a facebook account, or on instagram, or periscope, or on any other of the various platforms; but common sense is what I posted.

What teenager do you see, EVER, who doesn't have their smart phone attached to the end of their fingertips? How do you think the hundreds of thousands of youth that showed up yesterday, or the nation wide school walkouts get the numbers that they did? Apparently, as I heard on TV yesterday -there will be another national walkout on the anniversary of the Columbine massacre.

Like I said, these kids aren't going away. Better get used to it. :throw-rocks:

I've watched the NRA's whores in Congress use the same talking points over the last few weeks........


I am so darn proud of these kids.........they will have to change the sewer of gun violence that we have forced them to live in.......I'm not sure they will be successful..........The NRA....and it's whores.....are very powerful.

I was proud to join a rally on Long Island......my sons joined the rally in Midtown Manhattan.
