So if I switch out a wood stock to a scary shade of black one and maybe put on a different grip, it's suddenly more dangerous? Am I missing something? I really genuinely hope you guys know the original intent of the 2nd Ammendment was. No, it wasn't to prevent break ins, it wasn't for self defense, it wasn't for hunting, it wasn't for shooting clay pigeons. The founding fathers put forth 2A because the people need some way to resist a tyrannical government. There's plenty of times in recent history where an armed populus could have prevented serious tradgedy related to abuse of power. From the American Revolution, to fascist control of Europe, to the rise of communism in Russia, China, and other countries throughout the world. Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, Quaddafi, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro, both Kim Jongs, etc. all used a disarmed public to their advantage and they would have had much less leverage and success if their people were able to fight back. I sure would rather have something in the realm of what Medicated Fisherman is talking about than try to defend myself with the .22 I use to shoot roof rats out of my trees.
