What about every similar gun? Leave them all out there?
Government will insist on mandatory “buy ups” or confiscating everything.
While people in mass media on the left and right continue to harp about proposed confiscations, forced “buybacks,” sales bans and contrabanding AR-15s and AK-47s, there is no way either party or any candidate can attack those guns in isolation. Those are simply poster children for every basic firearm Americans own. Why isn’t the so-called “news” media making this clear? Are they hiding the truth?
“How can you go into a person’s home, confiscate or even buy their AR-15, and leave them with a Smith and Wesson M&P? Or a Steyr AUG? Or any gun with a normal magazine–all of which can take what media ignoramii like to call ‘hicapacity clips’? The firearms are all virtually the same thing. Banning AR-15s does nothing,” according to Alan Korwin, a gun-law expert and consultant to JPFO. Six national experts contacted by JPFO agree with Mr. Korwin. The AR-15 or AK-47 is no different from other standard magazine-type firearms. Demands to ban them are either hopelessly ignorant or deliberate deceptions. Such bans would have to ban almost everything to have any effect. Politicians know this. Hello, CNN?
“If you read the current bill, HR1296,” Mr. Korwin notes, “which the media apparently has not, it does ban almost everything, by banning guns with ‘any characteristic that can function as a grip.'” What gun, JPFO asks, doesn’t have a grip? It’s rhetorical. All guns have grips, so you can pick them up and hold them. The media is misleading everyone, including themselves. It’s clear the talking heads are unaware of this, just listen to them. They should have their licenses confiscated, except the media are unlicensed and unregistered — and it shows.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of “gun control” as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called “gun control” does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. “You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.”
