With all the hubbub about Evil Black rifles, sniper rifles, and what have you; I’ve come to the realization that I’m not cool. See, I don’t own an AR15, AK47, SKS, FN FAL, Steyr Aug, or any of the relatives of the Evil Black Rifle family. It’s not that I don’t think people should have them (they should), it’s not that I think they should be illegal (they shouldn’t). I plain just don’t like the darn things.
My realization is that this makes me “not cool”, because currently the AR15 is about The Coolest Thing when it comes to the gun owning community. Again, which is fine. Just stop telling me that I “have to go buy one RIGHT NOW”; I don’t. I don’t want one. It’s a matter of personal taste for me. Now if you start talking about semi-automatic shotguns, I’m all in for five or six of those.
Anyway, it just comes down to a matter of personal taste. I don’t like that family of rifles. The best thing about all of this? I’m totally free to dislike them; however unlike some people *coughJimZumbocough* I support your right to own as many of them as you like/can afford.
Now someone pass me my Mosin-Nagant and let’s go shooting.
