There are a lot of articles and discussion forum threads on barrel twist rate for AR-15s. So why am I writing one? Well, some of the information on the web is very wrong. Additionally, this closes out comment threads we've had here touching on this topic, EMail exchanges I've had with readers, and personal conversations I've had with shooters and friends about this subject. It's natural to put this down in case anyone else can benefit from the information. Or you may not benefit at [read more]
Besides which, since when is “effectiveness” a measure of Constitutionality? Where is the authority to do this? That’s a question a group of us have been asking for years, and for which we have never received acknowledgement from Exile proponents, let alone a responsive answer. Perhaps it’s time to resurrect and heed the objections and warnings of the Project Exile Condemnation Coalition.
Even without resorting to the demonstrable truism that anyone who can’t be trusted with a gun can’t be trusted without a custodian, there is a variety of ways people who pose no danger to themselves or others are denied the right to keep and bear arms – and often without even the simulated motions of “due process.” That includes gun owners in hopelessly “blue states,” in which all doors for peaceable redress of grievances have been slammed shut by overwhelmingly “anti-gun” legislatures and judges.
I agree with David concerning the issue of custodianship and gun ownership, and I must say that all of this federal involvement in local affairs is off-putting to say the least.
Jeff Sessions is better than some AGs we could get, but frankly, I couldn’t care less about enforcement of federal gun laws, any more than I care about the so-called “war on drugs,” both of which seem like failures to me as well as unconstitutional.
One reason I was happy to see Sessions appointed AG had to do with what I thought would be his prosecution of high level politicians and power brokers associated with, bound up in, implicated in, and leading the wicked and obscene pedogate empire that has taken Washington and other international centers of power.
When is Sessions going to start this prosecution? It’s been long enough. I’ve run out of patience. Drop your focus off of inner city black-on-black crime (which you can do nothing about short of removing the incentive, i.e., welfare and SNAP as payment for out-of-wedlock babies) and focus on the extortionist racket that is CP. Otherwise, you’ll be just another worthless AG I wish I had never known.
