    Does this require any comment?

    Due to the bad press brought about by the unpopular sobriquet "assault musket," industry insiders have been referring to the weapon by its preferred retail nomenclature: "modern smoothbore sporter."

    Waht's the derivation of that term "sporter," anyway. In relation to guns, "sport" implies hunting, not mercenarying. So why would the term "sporter" be used to signify a version of a weapon with accessories associated with military use?

    On the larger point, I completely agree that companies should be allowed to sell all the assault muskets they want. Great way to separate fools from their money. Not as great as getting them to buy $700 ARs, but still pretty good.

    Okay that was good. :D
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Where's the part where Daddy George could squeeze off 45-55 rounds per minute?

    $700.00. Where would one go to get such a deal?
