Bob Beckel on Fox news asked yesterday, "Why does anyone need an "assault rifle"?
I thought...Why does anyone need a 900 HP muscle car?...they could drive an East German wondercar like the Trabant or a Yaris or some other meager means of transport which aren't so "wasteful and dangerous". Why is there 1st class seating on airliners? Why are there multi CPU, overclocked computers when a plain vanilla Dell would be adequate?
I know you could come up with many more examples like this.
There are many choices we have the privledge to make because we live in this wonderful country. Some of the choices are wasteful, frivolous or dangerous to some. One of the choices we have is the weapon we choose. Whether it's for sport or protection...it's our choice...like many things in our life. You know...."assault weapons" are not Automatic weapons...they are the same mechanically as some hunting rifles with just a change in the stock design...with maybe a pistol grip added. They look more dangerous to these communists in the house and senate so they want to get rid of them. Most don't know a thing about firearms.
We have, and enjoy owning all types of guns because we are Americans and have freedom of choice. It would be wrong to take guns away from good and lawful people. You know the criminals won't give up there's. This is just another lie from the left.
Should I ever be assaulted, it would be extremely useful to have an assault rifle to defend myself against the assault.
Don’t go there. Why would anyone need anything other than a 18th century front stuffer? It’s not about “need.” Nothing in the Bill of Rights deals with “need.” It’s a constitutional right. Don’t like it? Let’s put it all on the table. Call for a constitutional convention.
To defend themselves against an assailant who might just have one.
Plus the bad guys have 'em. Hugs don't work.
I’d love to have one but they’re too much trouble because of the federal regs. So (for now) I’ll be content with my AK variants.
Since when is America meant to be arranged according to what our “needs” might be? That’s straight damned communism. “from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs”
Americans are supposed to have exactly what we decide we WANT, not what merely what we need.
Why does a left-wing anti-gun blogger need an internet connection? Or even a computer?
Why does FNC need Beckel? Oh yeah,... comic relief.
‘cause we can’t all be Nagant cultists. ;)
Why do we need TVs? Or cable news programs? they could all go
Om Mosin Padme Nagant.....
Why does Beckel eat so much..you need a 60 inch screen just to see his fat ass..perhaps there needs to be a ban on spoons so people like him won’t get so damn fat
To defend against assaults
To protect myself from our Marxist president.
Why does Al Sharpton need a TV camera?
To protect ourselves and our nation from the likes of Communist such as Bob.
To ensure the security of a FREE STATE!
So Beckel, you want to be the Obama’s Minister of Needs.
They’re needed to keep your inner-self of megalomania in check.
