law abiding citizen

this is another trap. Stop worshiping state law. They can define what law abiding is. Don't give them bullets to shoot you.

Just google how Hawaii's medical marijuana laws conflict with gun laws. For example

The principle of the second amendment is that not only do we have a right to overthrow a tyrannical government, but it is our duty to. Self defense has nothing to do with it, though that's a nice benefit.

Leftists don't deserve arguments or discussions.

They deserve concentration camps and firing squads.

Just replace AR-15 in any sentence being thrown around with "fighting chance against a tyrannical government". And the implications really begin to make sense.

I think they would just say the idea of the government being tyrannical is hogwash in an American society. Something something, look how far we have come! Gay rights first then the mentally ill rights like being able to use what ever bathroom you want! blah blah... You get the idea... The fears of our forefathers are a joke to them.

I'd like to point out that although there are plenty of libtards running rampant, we are winning the information war. Look at Hannity and Tucker with better ratings than any other cable news show. We got Trump into the White House. Hillary needed to get fake bots to follow her on FB and Twitter just to give the illusion she was popular. The media is good at making us feel like we are fringe, when it's the SJWs and communists who are the minority.

He said "tyrannical government" not U.S. government. Charging him with sedition would be equivalent to saying they are the same.

I am so sick and tired of having to explain that "AR" does not in fact mean assault rifle - that assault rifle is just a propagandic term for pretty much any rifle the elite deem unfavorable. I wonder when the attack on handguns will start? They shall call them assault handguns or some other stupid made up term... in the future? Pocket knives will be called assault hand weapons, a broad term that will include any type of knife or eating utensil (fork, it'd be easy to harm or kill someone with a fork they should definitely be made illegal!...)

How we went from revolutionaries that went up against one of the biggest empires this world has seen AND WON, to... this? ...

I think you got yourself mixed up there in the furor: the bullshit term they love to wield around is "assault weapon", which is meant to scare people by proximity to the very real "assault rifle". Other than that, have an upvoat.

Except that the term "assault rifle" was invented by Adolf Hitler as a name for his new light weight machine rifle that they were developing at the end of WWII. It didn't help much because the war was basically over any how, but they were very effective for medium range fighting, like inside cities.

This is the STG44

https://imgoat.com/uploads/613985ec49/89459.jpg

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StG_44

In April 1944, Hitler took some interest in the weapon tests and ordered the weapon (with some minor updates) to be re-designated as the MP 44. In July 1944, at a meeting of the various army heads about the Eastern Front, when Hitler asked what they needed, a general exclaimed, "More of these new rifles!". The exclamation caused some confusion (Hitler's response is reputed to have been "What new rifle?"), but once Hitler saw the MP 44 being demonstrated, he was impressed and gave it the title Sturmgewehr. Seeing the possibility of a propaganda gain, the rifle was again renamed as the Sturmgewehr 44 (StG 44), to highlight the new class of weapon it represented. The designation translates to "Storm (Assault) rifle, model 1944", thereby introducing the term "assault rifle".

there is extensive documentation of this

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assault_rifle

must have the following characteristics to be considered an assault rifle:

  • It must be capable of selective fire. (single/burt/fullauto)
  • It must have an intermediate-power cartridge: more power than a pistol but less than a standard rifle or battle rifle, such as the 7.92×33mm Kurz, the 7.62x39mm and the 5.56x45mm NATO.
  • Its ammunition must be supplied from a detachable box magazine.
  • It must have an effective range of at least 300 metres (330 yards).

For semi-automatic firearms restricted by some United States laws, see assault weapon. "Assault Weapon" is a specific term.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assault_weapon

Assault weapon is a term used in the United States to define some types of firearms. The definition varies among regulating jurisdictions, but usually includes semi-automatic firearms with a detachable magazine and a pistol grip, and sometimes other features such as a flash suppressor or barrel shroud

So while there is various branding by various manufacturers using the designation AR, the use of the term "assault rifle" and "assault weapon" are both legit and trace themselves back to proud nazi origins.

Not everyone is happy with this last point, but the facts are the facts

Ummm, NO. The "AR" in Ar-15 stands for Armalite Rifle:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ArmaLite#Products
Every gun they made was an "AR" something.
Colt retained the designation when they bought the rights to the design from them for the military full auto rifle that became the military nomenclature M-16. All of the semi-automatic civilian versions since have been called that as a generic term for that style of rifle.

An assault rifle is classified by the military as a a selective-fire rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine. Civilian AR-15's are not selective fire.

Assault rifle is a specific term, which does not apply to the AR-15 or any other semi auto rifle. Assault rifles (other than a few rare and expensive legal one's that have been grandfathered in and never used in a mass shooting) are already illegal in America. "Assault weapon" is a vague and meaningless term, redefined frequently and arbitrarily for political purposes.

Honestly, the way it's worded that's what I think too. But I also think the majority of Americans aren't ok with that, but instead of weakening the constitution by passing bogus laws they should ratify an amendment instead.

They will use any pretense to disarm you. Arm yourselves, & refuse to be disarmed. No one has the right to violate your right to arms, no matter their distractions or fantasies.

Absolutely. You're the authority. You don't need to justify fuck all to them. The only responsibility you have is to contact your political representative (who was only temporari!y hired to represent your wishes) and demand he uphold the constitution or else face active campaigning against his job and career.

Yep, this is the way. The ignorant will always reject the wise conclusion, because they literally don't know what they're talking about. But if you approach the topic with the Socratic method like this, then they have to explore the facts by default. People these days weren't raised with a classical education nor have they learned it themselves--the masses don't understand logic, how it's developed, and how to use it. They are very poor at argument (logical line of thinking) and very good at quarreling (with base emotions). The Socratic method is the only way to approach them and not be drawn into their quarrel. Maybe they learn something, and maybe they don't, but it's the best we can do.

I'm pretty sure that the military only uses one or two rifles across all services. If your jarhead buddy doesn't see through the "assault weapon" bullshit, it's easy to see why he'd assume a connection to what he actually used.
