Second Amendment and False Jefferson Quote

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms … disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes … Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Cesare Beccaria
Note:  the quote comes from a translation of an essay by Beccaria entitled "Essay on Crimes and Punishment" - sometimes falsely attributed to Thomas Jefferson.

Weapons of Choice: CMMG Mk47 AKM-Mutant

CMMG is offering an AR platform rifle that has the features of the AK-47, a hybrid: Mk47 Mutant.
While the idea of chambering an AR platform rifle with AK47 7.62x39mm rounds is not new CMMG has engineered a hybrid rifle that has the ease of takedown of an AR 15/M16 with a receiver designed for the 7.62x39mm cartridge that has more range/power than the 5.56mm/.223 caliber.

Weapons of Choice: SIG Sauer MCX

SIG Sauer has prided itself in innovative firearms design and the new Model MCX is no exception. It is built with standards for the military, reliable, gas-operated, short-stroke piston system that is the first AR platform rifle that has an auto-regulating gas system which allows shooters to switch between supersonic and subsonic loads, or unsuppressed or suppressed operation, without manually adjusting the gas system. That means quick changes will not compromise its operation.

I believe it is a fellow down the street who voted for Obama and believes Hillary is a victim of 'right-wing' vicious attacks (you know like they did to Bush and Condi), who annoyed me while cutting grass insisting I was a racist for not supporting Obama; and said I was 'delusional denier' because I do not believe in the global warming hoax, insensitve because I am against the Planned Parenthood Gestapo, 'homophobic' because I am against the US Supreme Court telling state governments they must recognize same-sex marriage, a 'radical' because I support the Tea Party and constitutionalism, that I shoud die because I am a 'baby-boomer' who is stealing younger generation's social security benefits, I am 'NeoCon' Neanderthal because I believe in 2nd Amendment and belong to the NRA. and 'Islamophobic' for warning about Islamic fascists in our homeland and their murderous destruction elsewhere - not realizing that I know the enemy after my excursion to liberate Kuwait from members of the 'religion of peace' in Persian Gulf. He calls himself a Democrat, but his political platform is democratic-socialism believing that anyone that disagrees with him and does not support his ideology and misquotations of the books of the Bible and is a relative of the Biblical ass despite believing that Christians should not be seen nor heard, apparently never looks upon his own reflection. Meanwhile feeding for free from my feeder meant for true Hummingbirds insisting that he IS a Hummingbird, he insists that I am delusional for not believing he is a hummingbird ...
