Ed and I have known each other since Basic, way back at Fort Benning (aka Fort Beginning). Ed is one of the smartest guys I know. While I stayed in and ruined my health (and sanity) in the Army, Ed got out, went to college and got an engineering degree and these days he’s in charge of a huge operation and he’s pulling in the big bucks. Ed is African-American – the reason this is significant is that over the years he has opened my eyes to a few realities that never occurred to me.
I am a big 2nd Amendment guy, but a question I struggled with for years was the whole thing about justification for a semi-automatic rifle with a 30-round magazine. There is no sporting application for such a firearm. When I got out, I didn’t get myself an AR-15 – I was trying to decompress, and I didn’t want to own a sinister looking black rifle. I made do with my Lee-Enfield for any long-range applications, and a shotgun for home defense.
Then one day Ed explained it to me.
Ed said, “There used to be this thing called lynching, in this country. People who form up lynch mobs, go after black men, and string them up in trees. And when they did this, they used to take group photos in front of the lynching tree, and the county sheriff would be there right alongside everyone else. And often, state governors would either turn a blind eye to it, or outright endorse this behavior.”
I got it immediately. What Ed was describing was the epitome of tyranny, contrary to the freedom that is referenced within the Second Amendment:






“Imagine,” my friend Ed said, “that if every black man in America had an AR-15 with seven 30-round magazines; the era of lynching would have been over before it even began.”
I get it now. Imagine if, prior to the Krystallnacht in 1938, every German Jew had a Luger pistol with three 8-round magazines; the Holocaust would have been over before it ever got started. And if every Jew and Slav in Eastern Europe had a Mauser M98 or a Mosin-Nagant rifle with a basic load of ammo, with instructions to kill just one German soldier each then go home and bury their rifle in the back yard, the Third Reich would have never taken Poland, much less launched into the Soviet Union.
When President Biden announced that he was going to ban AR-15s, I went right out and purchased an AR-15. 

“When the Government says you don’t need an AR-15 – YOU NEED AN AR-15”

After the Rittenhouse episode in Kenosha, Wisconsin, it is evident that there’s a whole new lynch mob out there. How ironic it is that they call themselves Antifa - short for “Anti-Fascist” - when they are the modern day incarnation of the Nazi brownshirts. If Kyle Rittenhouse didn’t have an AR-15, he would be dead at the hands of a tyrannical mob that the Government allowed to pillage and burn without constraint across the nation – and it is telling that Rittenhouse was found innocent by a jury of peers and is a free man today.
If anybody asks, this is why you need an AR-15, with as many 30-round magazines as possible.

  3. Hey Stormbringer

    Welcome back!, I had saved you on my blogroll. Keep on posting! You are correct, When the government says ' You don't seen an AR..".You will need an AR because bad things are going to happen to you

  4. Hey Stormbringer;

    I decided to add some more to my comment, Yep the AR will keep a mob at bay, especially when the Soros' sponsored rent a mob comes calling for your hide and the police "vanish" due to political pressure.

  5. Nope, when the govt says you don't need an AR15, you need TWO with abundant ammo and magazines.

    If every Ukranian had a rifle in the 1920s, the Holodomor would not have happened. If the Bolsheviks hadn't confiscated civilian firearms after the revolution, the NKVD wouldn't have been able to send people to the gulag camps. A disarmed populace encourages tyranny.


  6. I love to use machine gun and shotgun simultaneously. What do you recommend me when I want to buy only one of them.

  8. Reportedly President Franklin Roosevelt delegated the post-WW2 rebuilding to "Uncle Joe Stalin." FDR was also a fan of Charles Ponzi, as it is apparent in his social programs which spend newly created money.
