Adopting Gun-grabber Arguments on 'Common Use'
Ignores Intent of Second Amendment

By David Codrea. September 23rd, 2018.

"New industry statistics underscore popularity of 'America's rifle,'" the National Rifle Association declared Friday. "During a confirmation hearing for President Trump's latest Supreme Court nominee, [Sen. Dianne] Feinstein ludicrously claimed that semiautomatic rifles like the AR-15 ... are not "in common use.'

"We now have more than 16 million reasons to disagree with her," NRA explained, citing National Shooting Sports Foundation calculations for "the number of semi-automatic rifles -- including AR and AK pattern rifle -- produced (minus those exported) and imported in the U.S. on an annual basis between 1990 and 2016."

"In any case, the Supreme Court could not have been clearer in Heller that the arms protected by the Second Amendment depend on the choices of law-abiding Americans, not criminals," NRA concluded. "And Americans have made their choice by elevating modern semi-automatic rifles to the top of the list."

Arguing with NSSF's numbers is The Trace, a self-proclaimed "independent" news site about guns that just happens to be funded with "seed money" from Michael Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety. The "report" cites academic Aaron Karp, who crunches numbers for the globalist Small Arms Survey in Geneva and who claims "None of those numbers are great." .......

The "common use" argument will never go away because for the most part those who insist on misinterpreting the Second Amendment will always whine on about 'it's only the musket' - nothing else can possibly be considered permissible despite the changes over time towards what is available today. Defense is not only about defense of the self but also defense of the country - that would require tools of the modern era that can meet attack on more equal terms.
