    Too bad the other side will not listen, will not become educated. They just want to scream and kick.
    And the politicians are just plain evil. They do not care if it is an AR or a semi auto pistol.
    Heck if they could they would take away your shotgun and hunting rifle.
    To them if they can disarm us they own us.

    Title of post is not consistent with the video - its not why you DO need an AR, it's why you have a 2A RIGHT to an AR.

    Do I 'need' an AR15? No.
    Do I want an AR15? Not particularly.
    Do I have an AR15? Maybe, because when I lived in CA (not anymore) that government didn't want me to have one.

    Tell a real American he cannot have something, and he will find a way to prove that he can.
    And you may not like the way he shows you how.

    Well, that's the whole point. They don't want to listen to reason, they want to subjugate us. And before they can do so, they must disarm us.
    You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

    Forgive me for disagreeing but take another look;it's actually both if you consider both the video title and the text overlay. The DC post title comes from the video title, and the theme of the video is the need under the 2A for Americans to be competent with arms similar to those in use by the military forces. So, to achieve that, yes, you do need an AR.

    I don't need an AR-15. The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution says I have the right to bear arms and it shall not be infringed. I want an AR-15, among other guns, and I have the right to own one. It really is that simple.

    Indeed, good points very well layed out. This is an argument well worth adopting.

    I haven't watched it, but years ago when they still had a draft it just seemed like common sense to already be competent with rifles and military rifles in your youth. You don't hear that much anymore, but the basic idea is still a sound one. By 7 years old, Dad had already trained me in the different rifle positions. Makes me want to wake up the Grandson and familiarize him with the AR-15. We haven't gotten to that one yet.

    Oh by the way, does Massad ever smile?

    I don't need an AR-15. Yet. But the fact that politicians want to deny my right to own one, brings us closer to the day when we will all, indeed, need one.
