I'm ashamed to admit, but yes I do have a few liberal friends. A also have a BAD case of BRD, and I am in the process of building my first AR. A couple of times, a few friends, who do not have BRD, saw some of my parts collecting for my first build. Their reaction is "WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH THAT?!?!?!?!" Or, "WHAT IN THE WORLD DO YOU NEED A LASER FOR?!?!?!?!" Etc, Etc, Etc...

I'm not the quick-wittiest person around, but since I have a Yamaha YZF-R6, my response to these questions has been "I don't NEED a 170 mph sport-bike either, but it sure is fun to ride and just look at it and fondle in my garage." The only problem with that line is that I indeed break the law everytime I twist the throttle on my bike. But I certainly don't intend to break the law with my AR.

Their general first thoughts are that you are obviously planning on going postal some time in the near future.

I get a kick out of their reactions, but I was wondering if ya'll had any better comebacks or one-liners to tell your friends when they get shocked out of their minds to see such a hideous weapon?

Lay 'em on me!

When they ask why you need a semi-auto "assault weapon" that shoots fast tell them it is a personal choice and ask them why anyone would need to drive a Cadillac when a Yugo would do just fine.

Also, when they ask why anyone would need to buy ammo by the case and "stockpile" it, tell them that it's the same reason they go to Sams Club or Costco.  To get a good deal and save money you sometimes have to buy in quantity.

I can think or more but I'll let others add their inputs.

Sorry for the double post.  My IE crashed when I hit the submit button and I assumed it didn't go through.

I pretty much say a few things in regards to the "why do you NEED THAT??" statements.

You don't need your <insert car/truck model here>.  A Yugo will get you from point A to point B just fine, won't it?

Because I CAN.  See, we're in America, where we are FREE.  

Ahh, I see you're one of those ignorant fucks who thinks our rights to own what we want to should be determined by someone else's idea of what we NEED.

Crazy Liberals: "What in the world do you need an assault rifle for?"

You: "What in the world do you need freedom of speech for?"

"What in the world do you need freedom of religion for?"

"What in the world do you need trial by jury for?"

Some things are just rights. We can't really explain why we need them, but we know that God has granted those rights to us for a very good reason, and it is entirely outside the authority of the federal, state, or local governments to infringe upon those rights.

"I dont think you should be able to own one of those!  You dont need it!"

"Well, I dont think you need freedom of speech, because I dont like your belief .  I dont think you need a house either, you can live in a public housing apartment.  Or a car for that matter, just ride the bus.  Oh, by the way, FOAD.  I learned to respect other peoples' choice a long time ago.  That is what an adult does - let me know when you grow up and figure it out."

Guns cause crime like pencils cause misspelled words.

Guns cause crime like spoons made Rosie O'Donnell fat.
