The Internet Movie Firearms Database points out that Battleship characters carry a M4A1 with "foregrip, flashlight, and advanced combat optical gunsight."

I'm not sure what the point of this is. I'm not even sure why it's in the 2A forum.

foregrip-check
flashlight-check
ACOG-check

what's the point, again?

Advanced Combat Optical Gunsite = ACOG.

What's the big deal?

Most likely the OP is referring to the coincidental "timing" of the article in conjunction with the recent news stories, Yee, and any other media jumping on the scary-black-rifle bandwagon lately.

Not a big deal to us; but it may be to the anti's and uninformed. Not that hard to put 2&2 together IMHO...

I think 2:59AM post time has a lot to do with it. Just my opinion.
Nice catch :sleeping::D

And this is why citizens need to arm themselves with military-style assault weapons...for when the aliens attack.

Is Battleship based on the Milton-Bradley game? I love playing that as kid. I love battleships, I still do.

Aliens.... not so much. And I dont remember any aliens in my board game.

I definitely agree that we, as Americans, need to preserve the 2nd Amendment for future generations to preserve their right, and ability, to repel an Alien Attack.
