From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own. Carl Schurz
I have the word: overkill. This is akin to having the deluxe Eddie Bauer edition Explorer for just an additional 10k.This is an M-16 with a collapsable stock, tri-pod stand, high-powered scope, modified pistol-grip, and for some reason a small magazine (your point would have been better made with a 30 round banana clip).This is a tool. It is used correctly as a self-defense weapon. When they get banned - nothing good will come from it. It will be just another step toward complete tyranny here in the US.
