Sir I just want to give you my heartfelt thanks again. This is heroic to me because I can't imagine what nasty jibes you will get from some gun owners who are so blinded by their love of their weapon they really do place it's value above that of a child's life. A former friend of mine just yesterday posted a pic of himself gleefully at the range blasting away with his similar weapon- that he would think that is appropriate is shocking to me and heartbreaking because he selflessly devotes/volunteers his time frequently to a children's charity- this kind of disconnect speaks to the heart of this debate and serious problem
Giving up your legal private property because someone, somewhere killed some people is akin to you getting a vasectomy because your neighbor has too many children
You mean someone who isn't being obstinate, calling other people names and cussing others while screaming about guns and libturds??? Imagine that. I know some people who could learn a lot.
His property, his choice... If he wants to be a ijit, he's welcome to it. I'm glad he has the ability to see that he's not trustworthy and needs others to look after him.
Still lots of very proficient handguns on the market if people are upset about giving up an ar. This is commendable and a start on bringing compromise to two sides that are completely at odds on this issue.
There is a group of Christians who will take these weapons and turn them into farm toolshttps://www.plough.com/en/topics/justice/nonviolence/gardening-with-guns
a Republican senator is now calling for common sense gun restrictions which is a start but he also doesn't want AR 15's restrictioned because "some people use them hunting". Well sir, if a person needs an AR 15 to hunt s/he's not much of a hunter unless of course the game is herds of people.
I agree with this guy only the military (with Donald Trump as the C-in-C) and law enforcement (federal LEO being under the Trump Administration) has any business owning assault weapons.
The funny thing is that he could probably have found somebody reputable to sell it to and donated the money to an organization the promotes root cause mitigation for gun violence.
It would have had an effect beyond doing something that pretty much is only a feel good gesture.
If anybody else is interested in root cause mitigation or other effective gun policy suggestions please check out the article from The Liberal Gun Club.
This guy wasted no time and destroyed his in the best way I've ever seen.
