Aw, darn it. Early adopter Paxton Quigley -- as in Armed & Female -- had a bad case of the Zumboes talking to pompus twit Piers Morgan. She was goin' along great guns and then-- and then-- In re Uncle Joe Biden's Home Defense Advice, Paxton said, "...Well, I agree with him that I think an AR-15 is not something that the normal, average citizen should have."
No, no, no. Geesh, it's just a rifle. With a lot of accessories, but it doesn't fire an especially powerful round (in the common .223 chamberings), it doesn't fire them any faster than any other semiautomatic rifle, and it's a normal, average gun; there are more AR-15s at a typical Indy 1500 gun show than any other model of gun -- and that includes the popular and widely-copied lever-action cowboy rifles. Before the panic creatures like Joe Biden and Dianne Feinstein stirred up, it was the cheapest good rifle you could buy and by far the most versatile; they managed to make it even more popular and now they're selling as fast as they can be made, at amazing prices.
And Paxton Quigley is selling them out. Selling us out, too, to a pomaded, tea-drinking twit unworthy to wipe up after H. L. Mencken's dog. Please, please, someone take her to the range with an AR-15 and show her what she's talking nonsense about, before she Zumboes herself into irrelevance. Wake up and smell the fail, lady: if you give them my AR-15 now, they'll be back for the revolver in your purse by and by. Antis gonna ant; give them a foot -- or a round -- and they'll take a whole magazine.
* I was thinking about "Quigley down under the bus" for a title, but she's throwing herself there and it seems overly mean to capitalize on it.
