The question says it all. I'm having another no holds barred with a liberal about "assualt weapons". I've told him I don't need a reason. I have a RIGHT to own one and thats all that needs to be said. So brothers & sisters of ARFCOM...... why do you?

I wanted to be the first one on my block to own a evil black rifle but the deputy on the corner beat me to it, I fired his at the range. Very cool indeed.

Just 'cause. And that's good enough.

Fun to shoot.

Because I would look cooler taking out zombies with my black rifle than with any other gun I own.

I used to own an Evil Black Rifle, but I had it Exorcised. It's not evil anymore, and actually plays well with others now.

My EBR's were attracted to me and I gave them a home and loving care.

Right up to the boating accident, in which all perished.

Because I can't afford anything better.

The kind of people you are arguing with like to compare gun ownership to car ownership. These are the easiest to defeat in a debate. Why do they need a minivan, SUV that will carry seven people when they only have four in their family. If they want to carry more they can make multiple trips. this kills the "high capacity " magazine argument.

Why do they need a vehicle that will go 100+ mph when the speed limit in most areas of the country is 70 mph? This kill the semi-auto argument.

Wht don't you have to register guns like cars? Cars driven on PRIVATE PROPERTY don't need to be registered.

How old do you have to be to buy a car? There is not a minimum age as far as I know to buy a car.

Why don't you have to liscense all gun owners like car owners? Cars driven on private property don't have to have a liscensed driver.

I'm sure there are more comparisons that our fellow board members can add.

Cause they say, "Once a Marine, always a Marine".

And their nearest armory is a long way from here.

Or, Boyscouts motto, "Always prepared".

Like the WWII & Korea guys love their Garands and M1 carbines, the AR was my service weapon and I am most comfortable with it.

I love shooting mine (it's fun), it reminds me of my younger days (pre-military and military; I had a Mini-14 first and then an AR BEFORE basic, registered in my mom's name of course), plus I like to educate numbskulls like your buddy that these rifles aren't what the liberal media has made the sheeple think they are. Invite him shooting with you. It's worth 50-100 rounds.

BTW - WTH is an "EBR"?????

Prolly the best reason. DF is one of the largest Domestic Terrorists in our nation currently. She is a danger to our safety and freedom.
