"...the AR-15 rifle the gunman used Friday in an attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School that killed 26 people..." This is a factual LIE !! The Bushman (semi auto) AR-15 rifle was stored in the trunk of the gunman's car !! He used 2 semi auto handguns to massacre the children !! News media is distorting the facts to manipulate public opinion to ban military type rifles !!

Holding back on weapons because in a while, they will be MORE expensive. I'd call that war profiteering. But, in looking at these idiots, who is really winning?

Poortrucker -- All the accounts I have read indicated that all of the shootings inside were done by the AR-15, with the exception of the suicide, which was by one of the handguns. The gun found in the car trunk was a shotgun.

They used to lock up crazy people in asylums and confine them in straight jackets, now the asylums are closed, it is illegal to confine someone in a straight jacket and they walk the streets with guns.

Perhaps we should stop selling ammo like cotton swabs and limit ammo (by cost or volume limit). If a bullet cost 400.00 how many would you need for home protection?
