  2. boooooooring!

  3. This image has been controversial, but I’m glad to take the heat if it encourages more people to participate in a necessary conversation. I’m not anti- 2nd Amendment, I’m pro-common sense. No one needs an assault rifle with a 50 round clip, especially without a background check. Let’s not allow a powerful organization like the NRA to lobby, use fear tactics, and ultimately dictate policy that is not supported by the majority of Americans. Please speak up if you believe in safety over intimidation. Thanks for caring.

  4. It’s not the message—it’s the messenger.

  5. @ Skank: Automatic weapons are already illegal in this country. Almost all other weapons are semi-auto, and it’s ridiculous to assume any effective personal self-defense without it. You apparently don’t have a clue as to what an “assault rifle” is.

    Anything you pick up to attack me with is an assault weapon, whether that be club, knife, or gun.

    I think every adult , non-criminal citizen should have access military-grade PERSONAL arms. We’d have a lot less violence, and a lot more courtesy.

    But most important, we’d have enough firepower to fend off a violently tyrannical government. THAT is the purpose of the 2nd amendment.

    It is needed today as much as it ever was in the past. If you do not understand that, then you don’t understand the history of government tyranny.

    lmao

  8. If you’re going to make art to “make a point” at least be educated about it. Because if you aren’t you (a) look like a fool and (b) become a useful idiot for radical special interests.

    – AR-15-platform rifles are among the most popular firearms being sold. They are today’s modern sporting rifle. National and international matches use them.
    – The AR in “AR-15″ rifle stands for ArmaLite rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.”
    – AR-15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.” An assault rifle is fully automatic — a machine gun. Automatic firearms have been severely restricted from civilian ownership since 1934.
    – AR-15-style rifles are no more powerful than other hunting rifles of the same caliber.

    There are already background checks required for purchasing an AR-15 in all 50 states for retail purchases. And as far as clip size…geez. There are countless videos out there (just check YouTube) that demonstrate that it doesn’t matter if it’s a 7-round clip or a 100-round clip. There’s simply no significant difference in the time it takes to get off the same amount of rounds.

    Please, please, for the love of all things just do a LITTLE research.

  9. They are called magazines people not “clips” !!

    “But most important, we’d have enough firepower to fend off a violently tyrannical government. THAT is the purpose of the 2nd amendment. ”

    That may have been the case we we all had muskets and cannons,but that argument simply holds no weight in modern times. We will NEVER have enough firepower to fend off the modern US military. Should civilians have military jets? ballistic missiles? battle ships?

  10. 1. I believe that Skank was just quoting Shep from the Obey website. No need to personally attack the dude for copying and pasting.

    2. I don’t see how firearms would make anyone more or less courteous. A-holes will still be just that.

    3. If you really think you are going to go up against an APC or even an armored Humvee with a semi automatic weapon and fend off the government, you are f’n delusional. Don’t forget about those helicopters and drone strikes.
