    Apparently you and/or your garbage "source" can in fact be "make it up".

    Civilian ar-15s are not assault rifles.

    In many places in the USA, high school kids save up for a decent car and a decent gun. A car is far more dangerous in my book. You could kill hundreds of people before being stopped in a crowded city.

    Apparently you didn't pay attention in English class.

    What's to make up? Lots of kids get rifles in the Midwest when when they are children. Ever notice it's always some city kid that finds a gun in dad's nightstand that pops himself or someone else? Because they aren't educated on firearms.

    My kids were around firearms from day one and I explained them to them and taught them to shoot. There was no mystique of "forbidden object" to them so they paid them no attention.

    It's just a marketing ploy and obviously it works. Bet they hold that giveaway about 20 hours into that 21 hours of preaching.

    No, I didn't ever notice that.

    I especially didn't notice that when a friend of my son, who lives in a village of 1,000 people, blew his brains out with his daddy's gun a couple years ago.

    That young suicide was educated in firearms, too, incidently, what with him not being a city kid and all.

    1,000,000 Americans have been killed by guns since 1960.

    You including war deaths and suicides in that figure? Do you have a link to the source? Seems like an unlikely number...I mean, exactly 1 million?
