I was asking myself a number of days ago, "Why do liberals so hate firearms of military heritage, especially the civilian AR-type rifle?" I came to the conclusion that it's because military wheppins are not attractive-- they are not "pretty" like was the hunting rifle of Nancy Foolosi's grandfather. A military wheppin has everything on it needed for combat-- and nothing it doesn't need. Necessities like those are grounds for the designers to throw aesthetics to the wind. Liberals live in a world of unicorns and rainbows, and there's always gourmet ice cream costing $13 a pint at the end of those rainbows. Military men who use "ugly" firearms have no need nor use for unicorns and rainbows. They need a weapon that can be used to kill the enemies of Liberty as quickly as possible, the killing being still another reason liberals hate firearms. Freedom is secured by hard men willing to do hard things so that those who follow will not have to do the same at some later time.
