Please tell us where military surplus M16s are showing up for sale. I'll take several so long as they can legally be sold to civilians.

But first, please explain how your satire fits in the forum.

this item picture is an m16 and 100% legal. some do not even require a background check.

I hear people are talking about gun control and know so little about that which they speak. In California we consistently deal with legislators that do not understand firearms, how they work, or what they can do. as well as media who are all too eager to gloss over the details.

all of the postulates i listed are technically correct.

"Dropped once" on what though? Carpet?

I mean, if banning the M16 will make my ovaries stop hurting from the vast amount of social justice I've been dishing out lately, then maybe I'm down.

Wrong forum. Wrong time. Wrong humor.

I like the meme. Can it go viral?

Mousqueton Berthier Mle 1892/M16

these were in french cavalry service from 1892 and continually updated to 1916.

originally 3 round but increased to 5 round high capacity

it actually has a magazine, internally

it loads via mannlicher style enbloc clips.

Cordite or Podure Blanche were the first smokeless powders and are also considered a low grade explosive.

made in Sault-St. Etienne arsenal in France

but it sounds scary, which is the point. this is what the media and the anti's intend-- no guns.

anything can be made scary without context.

Perhaps dropped once as in "I surrender!"
Like a French or Italian or insert nationality here.

A classic French rifle. Never been fired and only minor cosmetic damage when the rifle was dropped. The Germans must have been storing at least a million of these rifles since 1914.

I'm sorry, but this is an OT thread.
I'll add that it does nothing to help advance our fight to protect our 2A rights.
You might as well point out that my R92 holds 12 rounds that can be dumped in about 5 seconds. I'm sure the antis will be happy to ban them also.

The cry to ban the AR15 naturally has to lead onward to banning any arm chambered for .223/5.56.

When some smartie figures out how many different rounds that are more destructive...of course those will have to be banned, too. Pistols, rifles shotguns, the lot.

Welcome to the slope.

^^This. I usually see it paired with a MAS 36.

If the Founding Fathers didn't have M16s, we'd all be speaking English.

Crimeny!!!! Don't give those idiot libs any ideas. They'll call that a high caliber sniper rifle and try to ban them (again).
