Stop Arguing the Orlando Shooter Didn’t Use a AR Rifle

I have to say something to my fellow pro-gun advocates. Don’t be so quick to promote the “The Orlando shooter didn’t use an AR” thing.

Why? One, it means you are giving up the argument about the AR. Which you shouldn’t do.

Two, I personally don’t give a flying Freak if the SIG MCX uses a buffer-tube, is DI or piston driven. And neither should you. See number One.

Three: all the gun bans have always been written to cover models, designs, classifications, brands, copies of et all, and features. See 922, 94AWB, CA-DOJ and NYSAFE-ACT.

You’re geeking out and actually NOT helping. You think you are, but I assure you, you are not. All that is happening is you are playing into the Lefty Semantic game. A suckers game they will always win.

A gun is a gun is a gun is a gun.
Terrorism is terrorism is terrorism is terrorism.
Jihad is jihad is jihad is jihad.
Communism is communism is communism is communism.
Government debt is government debt is government debt is government debt.
Unemployed is unemployed is unemployed is unemployed.
Freedom is freedom is freedom is freedom.

Stop with the new-speak because all that is going to happen is the Left is going to check-mate you on that bull$hit with banning MSR – Modern Sporting Rifles. The exact phrase YOU created to beat them. See point one.

Seriously people. Just stop.

    Yes, well said. Only some wannabe “guru” would even bother. As I said in a post on some crap Tom Brokaw was spouting about “gun owners needing to face facts” (which was complete crap, but I expected it to be) “there are millions of AR-15’s legally owned but only one was used by a terrorist murderer, blame the murderer not the gun.” All they want is one win, then another, and another, and another, till there are none. It just makes my blood boil.

    • Here is something I didn’t specify. Those who want to make the argument splitting this rifle, and it’s features, off from the accepted “AR-15” category are likely going to give the anti-gunners the idea that folding stocks should be outlawed.


      In many countries around the world, folding stocks are regulated or outlawed. So what does this gun do that a pedestrian, original, A1 or A2 style AR doesn’t?

      Or let me ask another question. Do you think the anti-gunners will want to ban piston guns? Or rifles that accept drop-in aftermarket AR triggers?

      We need to be smart.

      The issue isn’t guns. Or stopping people on the NO-FLY-LIST from buying guns. The issue is the No-Fly-List and the Terror Watch List are complete bull$hit. The way everyone is talking about the NFL, they act like it’s the Terror Watch List.

      Well? Is it? Or not? What we need is a real conversation about jihad and radical islam in this country. And if someone is under suspicion of possible terror ties, why aren’t they being charged in federal court?!?

      Why can a terrorist buy car? Or walk down my street? Or get anything form a hardware store?

    I thought I was the only one who felt this way… FANTASTIC post, thank you for this.

  • Matt Proffitt

    Was wondering what people thought of this statement a friend sent me?

      Sorry, don’t do Facebook.

    Also couldn’t believe this.

    It feels like a bazooka — and sounds like a cannon.

    I’ve shot pistols before, but never something like an AR-15. Squeeze lightly on the trigger and the resulting explosion of firepower is humbling and deafening (even with ear protection).

    The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.

    Even in semi-automatic mode, it is very simple to squeeze off two dozen rounds before you even know what has happened. In fully automatic mode, it doesn’t take any imagination to see dozens of bodies falling in front of your barrel.

    • His comments have been making the rounds. It’s obviously self serving, bull crap.


      • Matt Proffitt

        If it was from another media outlet it’d be beautiful satire of how ppl uneducated about firearms on the left actually see things.

        • I’m sure at some point he’ll be asking for disability.

          No. I am not kidding.

          It’s coming. “Everybody” has PTSD these days.



          • Matt Proffitt

            It because everyone thinks they are special and everyone gets a trophy. It’s bs. Sprinkles are for winners!!! Over Sensitive coddled and over protected. They can’t play with fire or knives… But that’s how you learn that some things are sharp and hot. You don’t respect fire if you never run the risk of being burned.

        I wrote a letter to the editor, which will of course be trashed as soon as read, to refer Kutzman to You Tube to watch some videos of 7 and 11 year old girls shooting AR’s. Maybe if he did he would realize just what a puss he really is, and to claim “temporary PTSD” is a damn disgrace to anyone who suffers with real PTSD. Hopefully karma will visit this douche and soon.

        • They don’t care.


          • Outlaw

            I know but I want them to know that I do.

          • I heard that author’s last name is becoming an adjective describing a total pussy.

            Look it up.



          • Outlaw

            If it isn’t true it should be. Damn shame a seven year old girl has more stones than a supposed grown man.

  • Steve S.

    Amen, Marky. Amen. We are our own worst enemy at times.

    • Sometimes. But generally we are better today than in 1994. We are motivated, educated and active.

      We will keep winning this fight.


  • Mikial

    Well said, Marky.

    Much better to point out why all people . . . gay, straight, bi, whatever have a right to defend themselves. This is the right time to forget about the gun issue and focus on the people issue. We are at war and the enemy wants all of us dead. Period. Guns are simply a tool to be used by whoever is holding them.

    • I am hearing and seeing grumblings that more and more gay people are waking up to the reality that the Left doesn’t actually care about them or their welfare.

      It’s been an interesting week.
