    And, to top it off, they want them “selective fire” which is the capability to switch from fully automatic to semi-automatic.

    Now why would a govt want greater firepower than they allow their citizens to have?

    Stalin and Hitler come to mind.

    If, indeed, a firearm were more dangerous to its possessors than to potential aggressors, would it not make sense for the government to arm all criminals, and let them accidentally shoot themselves?

    But, with F and F, the govt IS arming criminals.

    Looks to me like the firearms are a., not necessarily AR15s, but smaller, and the bid is coming from Immigration enforcement. I thought you wanted secure borders, LLM?

    “Stalin and Hitler come to mind”…but only to some minds.

    And let us not forget, Fast and Furious was yet another wonderful idea from the Bush Administration. Which, 10 years ago today, told the entire world it had definite proof that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction…and we see how well THAT worked out.
