.300 AAC or 5.56.
Both. Simple as that.
I’ve got a 5.56 upper right now, and once my tax stamp comes back, I’ll have another one. But, I also want to build a 10.5” 300 blackout upper…

My speech on gun control Im giving tomorrow if anyone wants to read it
1 college GUN FREE ZONE, 1 immigration center, 1 army base GUN FREE ZONE, 1 movie theatre, 1 place of worship and 1 elementary school GUN FREE ZONE.” Here’s a question, can anyone tell me the year that has had the largest amount gun related deaths? it’s 2013.” More people die in car accidents that shootings.
"Gun violence in this country is a growing problem" Its really not, but I’ll let you believe what you want.
"and the most effective way to curb that is to ban assault weapons and put a universal background check in place so gun violence can be reduced." HA! Nice joke. Wanna ban guns? Go ahead. You know how easy it is to build a gun with parts you can get from Lowes? With $50 I could go to Lowes and build a crude fully automatic firearm, that would be far more deadly than anything you could buy at a gun store. Further more, there is already a federal background check that EVERY FFL gun store must run the buyers information through in order to determine if the buyer can in fact own a firearm.
"The first major public shooting that most Americans can remember is Columbine High School in Colorado where 13 were killed and 24 were injured." THIS WAS A GUN FREE ZONE. ITS EASY TO KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE WHEN THE PEOPLE CAN’T POSSESS FIREARMS TO FIGHT BACK. ”This event set the first shockwaves to people all across to country and gave attention to the growing gun violence problem that is plaguing the nation.” Not really. There was an assault weapons ban in 1994 that ban certain firearms, like full autos and suppressors, but it ended in 2004 and each state made its own laws regarding firearms.
"In states that have more gun laws, the less violence ensues." I’d like to see some statistics. Take a look at Chicago’s gun violence. Maybe Denver, or what about Atlanta. "3 huge non gun control states, Louisiana, Alaska and Arkansas, currently have the highest gun violence rates." Louisiana actually has some somewhat strict gun laws. NFA weapons are restricted there. "The 3 states that have the least amount of gun violence are Hawaii, Massachusetts and Connecticut which all have strict gun control laws and universal background checks." ALL STATES ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS PER FEDERAL LAW. GOOGLE THE FBI NICS. Although those states have strict gun laws, you can still own most NFA weapons (full autos, SBRs, suppressors). Plus, Hawaii’s laws really aren’t even bad. There is a popular quote that is currently out circulating and that is “guns and homicides go together like Nicholas Cage and terrible movies.” The stricter the laws are, the least amount of violence will happen. For example, in Hawaii to acquire a gun you must go to the local sheriff to get it approved and get the appropriate background checks. Congrats? That doesn’t really do much? Like I said, in those states, its easier to build a weapon that legally buy one. In Massachusetts, assault weapons and citizens must go through 15 hours of gun training. So wait, you are saying that the assault weapon itself has to sit in a 15 gun training class? Do they teach it to sit and roll over? And thats good, if someone wanted to commit mass murder in Massachusetts, they get a 15 hour training class that teaches them how to shoot people.
There is no other developed country that has a higher gun related death rate than the United States. In every other modernized country, they have universal background checks and gun control laws keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. Criminals don’t buy guns legally, they buy them illegally on the streets. The guns they buy have the serial number scratched off and are normally stolen. A CDC study totaled the amount of gun related deaths in countries in the year 2012, the results are shocking. 58 gun deaths in Britain, 6 in Japan, 173 in Canada, 134 in France and 8,775 in the United States. Can we get a citation on your false statistic? Gun related deaths? I’m assuming they are taking suicide by firearm into account.
There are many myths about the effectiveness of gun control. “Chicago is one of the most dangerous cities even after banning guns within city limits, it doesn’t work”. True, Chicago does have a higher crime rate than other American cities, but after the prohibition of guns within city limits gun violence rates have dropped a stunning 20%. Since Australias nearly complete firearm ban in 1996, armed robberies rose by 51%, unarmed robberies rose by 37%, assaults rose by 24% and kidnappings rose by 47%. Murders fell by 2%, but manslaughter rose by 16%. Care to explain those for me? Although parts of the city are dangerous, gun crime is on the decline. No its not. “Knives are just as dangerous as guns are, it’s ridiculous that we’re just focusing on one problem.”Okay, let’s just look back at this statement. Guns, which can fire many rounds of ammunition, Not in some states. Some only allow 7 rounds or 10 rounds per magazine. that can shoot bullets over 100mph, that can go through bone, are the same as a metal knife, really? With enough force, you can easily cut through bone with a Katana or sword. Should we ban those too? 2 days after the horrific shooting at sandy hook, in China a man went into a class room stabbing 23 children, injuring 23 of them and killing 0. “The constitution clearly says a right to bear arms.” In the 1790s, our nation’s forefathers had no idea what kind of world we would live in. They didn’t know that we would be the 3rd largest country with 300 million people. They also specified the second amendment to a “well regulated militia.” See you fucked up here, because “a well regulated militia” relates to the people of the United States that are ready to fights in a momnets notice. Its similar to the draft in my opinion. If the US ever needed to draft people, we’d be able to fight. One last popular myth that is being circulated is “how will I be able to protect myself against my family if an intruder comes in my house.” Doesn’t your thesis say that “assault weapons” should be banned? Never in my life will I say all guns should be banned, I grew up around guns living in the country of the state that has the most hunters. Living in the country of the state? Da fuck? Doesn’t even make sense bro. The idea that weapons like semi-automatic assault rifles not being in the hands of the wrong person makes me comfortable. You really are just not helping your point. First you start off saying that all guns are bad, and that no one should have assault weapons, but now they are ok? WTF. The average person, Define average person. as long as they pass a background check and go through training should be able to own a gun. Why do people need training? I don’t have training, nor have I ever had training, but I carry a firearm every day.
With this all being said and these horrible events in the country happening in the country, it’s time as citizens that we do something. What do you want the citizens to do? Tell congress to vote to ban guns? Lol. Its failed many times this year, so please try again. I challenged anyone in this room, when given the opportunity, to both express concerns to your local state or federal representative and vote on responsible gun legislation. Once again contradicting yourself. Thesis states to ban assault weapons. Without responsible legislation, gun related violence is a growing problem in the United States and we need smart changes that take guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t be having them to prevent deaths. Just saying, Kentucky has some of the loosest firearm laws in the entire nation, and we are doing juuuuust fine. No one fucks with each other here because we all know that every has guns. Simple as that.
All in all, I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul. No citations, it contradicts itself, and was poorly written. (I gave you a point because you tried.)
