Government changes definition of "assault" weapon - for them

Be you left or right leaning politically, this whole "assault" weapon b/s has got to be the BIGGEST hypocrisy in the history of our nation. To say the government has no agenda means you are a FOOL.

Case in point? The AR-15 -- when YOU own one, it's an "assault" weapon. When the government buys 7,000 of them, they are CLOSE QUARTERS DEFENSIVE WEAPONS.

Why the change??????????????? :mad:

One other question that needs to be asked is, why did the government buy so many hollow point rounds? The Geneva convention banned the use of them in war. Are those meant for us? :shock:

Yup. :shock:

The Geneva Convention also forced us to treat 375,000 German POW's to plenty of fine food, while Americans went hungry.

It wasn't the Geneva convention, it was the Hague convention of 1899 prohibits the use of bullets that flatten easily in the human body. The US governments interpretation of the Hague is that hollow points are legal when used against terrorist operations-- When not involving the engagement of armed forces of another state.
So the short answer is yes they are for us. But can you blame them they know they are going against ar-15's with a 30 round mag stuffed with hollow points. They don't want to be out gunned. :lol:
In close quarters I'd rather use a Saiga 12 with a 10 round clip and some serious home defense ammo. One and done! :)
