    Don't these guys know about the political climate around here?

    Why in the world would they give the gun grabbers a video like that to use against us?

    "It's easily converted to a machine gun" say the gun grabbers.

    "No it's not" we say.

    Then, this Bozo makes that video.

    How am I supposed to argue with the gun grabbers now?:uhoh:

    What was this guy thinking? :fire::fire:

    Wake up and smell the coffee here people. This is a battle where we stand to loose most, if not everything we hold dear with our rights to bear arms of our choice. Jokers like this simply help spread the fear and panic against guns, and specifically assault weapons.

    We are fighting a massive uphill battle here folks, and people who feed the publics perceived fear and ignorance of guns with videos like this just hinder our cause all the more. What makes it worse is its one of our own-

    We need to remain unified in our effort to show the masses that guns are not horrible, evil, weapons of mass destruction. We need to show the public that gun owners are above all responcable users of the tool we have been given the right to own.

    My point would be that we should be allowed to have machine guns:)

    wrong?

    at least 3 of us dont like to see this kind of stuff posted for general consumption... it doesn't help the cause.

    having said that, he probably didn't do anything illegal, but neither did alot of folks that get trampled by the BATFE

    Its HIS business. You may not like it, but

    1) Despite your commitment to appease the Brady Campaign and not offend the gun grabbers, he isnt breaking any laws

    2) We should be allowed to own full auto weapons, and if you were a true supporter of the 2A you wouldnt care about what the hell the Brady Campaign thinks about that video in the first place.:fire: True freedom doesnt lend itself to the theory of compromising our rights.

    Its His property. And he shouldnt have to resort to jerry rigging his gun with a rubber band in the first place.


    First they came for the fully automatic rifles and I said nothing because I didnt see why anyone needed a full auto.

    Then they came for the military style rifles and I said nothing because it didnt affect my .270 Weatherby:rolleyes:....


    You know the rest.

    As a Limey living in €urope to escape the ridiculous gun law's in Britanistan I'd say GG. got it right we should all be allowed to own full auto if we wish to do so, and to make a further suggestion the gun grabbers can move to Britanistan where they can all feel safe.

    wow, pointed insult #1 of the day! did you skip your morning coffee?

    I am a full supporter of the Second Ammendment, and believe in automatic weapons for all law abiding citizens. what he does IS his business, and I have the right to suggest its counterproductive.

    Point of fact I don't care what the brady bunch thinks of that video; I am more concerned with what the general public thinks, as they are the ones that make the trip to the ballot box.

    as a side note, I found your post assuming and slightly offensive. Thankfully, you also have a right to your opinion.

    What I can't figure out is; If he has gone to all the trouble to build and register a SBR, why did he not go ahead and make it full-auto as well and just skip the silly rubber band garbage....Bump firing...waste of time, effort, ammunition........foolishness!

    unless I missed something, an SBR will cost you rifle+$200 Tax stamp. M-16's are significantly more than $10,000.

    please correct me if I am mistaken.

    I think it is obvious who owns gun strictly for fun, because with how scared some people sound over a stupid video, I can image the mess on the floor if someone broke into their house.

    I feel I have to respecfully disagree with many of you on this subject--

    Having an arrogant, in your face, blatant attitude in these days will solve nothing, it will just fuel the pyre of anti-gun fervor.

    We need to think smarter, and fight this threat which is going to come crashing through all our barriers any day now. If we don't unify and come up with a plan other than ignoring it, the Brady people along with the other anti's WILL rally enough public sheeple support to crush us. We need desperately to win the publics support for this, not to push them even further away from our cause by flaunting what will cause fear and loathing, no matter how legal it may be.


    Arrogantly ignoring the threat we are facing will cost us our rights to own firearms, plain and simple. Face the facts, we are in a war here, and if we loose, we will loose our rights to own firearms of our choice.

    Well you better ask the citizens of Great Britan, Japan, Canada, Australia, Spain, and numerous others about how much that God Given right matters to the anti's.

    Relax folks, look at his hands. He's bump firing it which, pending the capricious reversal by the BATFE, is not currently considered to constitute a machinegun. The rubber band is just to hasten the trigger reset.

    Thus, the video depicts activity that some may find offensive, either because it is frivolous or scary to the ignorant, but it is not (yet) illicit.

    The only harm this video could cause is to someone predisposed to a fear of guns, but not totally committed to the hoplophobic agenda.

    I think if this video had explained the technicalities of what's going on, how it isn't illegal or even that useful, and why auto and semi auto fire are actually no big deal, it could have been a very helpful meme floating around out there.

    Well, we see where negotiating with them has gotten us.:rolleyes: Im not going to dilute my belifs to appease anyone, and I dont fell the guy in the video should have to either.

    It seems the main difference in oppinion here , is how we feel when we watch the video. You see an irresponsible, careless gun owner who you feel is doing more harm than good to your "cause".


    When I watch the video, I feel sorry for the guy. I feel sorry that he has to modify a 9 hundred dollar rifle with a 15 cent rubber band, to achieve what he should be able to buy off the shelf. I also feel that there are some in this thread who do not know the true meaning of the Second Ammendment. You say that we are in a fight to save or rights, how can you be fighting to save our rights when you do not recognize them yourself?

    To the best of my knowledge, they dont have a BOR to protect that God Given Right.

    However, Im not an expert on foriegn governments and Constituions, so I'll await a confirmation from someone more versed in that field.
