Functionally, there is zero difference between an AR15 and a Ruger Mini, that is a gun that has been around for approximately 50 years. Prove me wrong.
I don't remember the exact model, but there was also a gun, early in the 1900's that had the same functionally that was used by the common man.
At least 90% of what the media says about firearms, is 100% :BS 8) 8)

call me silly but "you think you can take us with your ar15s? we'll obliterate you away with F15's!" is bad speech writing. He literally abandoned a country where the enemy had 0 F15's and we turned tail and ran and left all our stuff there. ALSO which is it? a bunch of people with phones and american flags ALMOST OVERTHREW THE COUNTRY? or we couldn't possibly do so with AR15?

this stuff about "extremism" is also ridiculous. whitehouse spokeslady : "if you don't agree with the majority of people in the country, by definition that is extremist. " biden's approval rating is at 39%. if you think biden is doing a good job you are an extremist.

Yeah. But this is ‘Better’ then what we had before. So accept and embrace it

So So True. But if you don't embrace the Dem agenda, then you clearly have a problem and are under some serious suspicion for being a semi-platonic non-binary homophobic multi-choice maniac who has secret fantasies about overthrowing democracy, morality, and the current Post Malone North American Tour, which includes special appearances by Doja Cat on select dates.

Sad thing is we may never know... the senile old man might be trying to get us into nuclear war with Russia just to cover it up. Think Clinton bombing an aspirin factory x1000000.

it was def leaked by someone who knows it would be swept under a rug somehow if not released to public. turn about is fair play I guess.

a few other random thoughts :

- there is basically a new video it seems almost twice a week where biden ends a speech and then wanders around the stage with 0 inkling what he's supposed to do next. how do they keep letting this happen? like they should be sending someone up there right away to direct him. but the other issue is that if he was not president, Kamala would be and thats even worse in my mind. they are sending the VP all over the place and shes up there talking like a jr higher who is doing a presentation on a project they didn't prepare for.

- also quietly they've already drawn in some of the qualifications for the student loan forgiveness. limiting who actually qualifies for it and its a GIANT distinction. going largely under reported btw. I still think that dies in the courts but they are already paring it back to try and keep it alive.

- inflation is basically here to stay. i would recommend any money that isn't invested in equities, stashed in savings you won't need for a while, put it in ibonds. I think ibonds will pay 7+ % for the next year and half at least. All politicians both left and right should not bet that their "we did that" stance will be valid come election time.
