Kerry Questioned About His 'Chinese Assault Rifle'
CNSNews ^ | September 17, 2004 | Susan Jones, CNSNews.com Morning Editor

Posted on 09/17/2004 2:22:18 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

CNSNews.com) - Does Sen. John F. Kerry really own a "Communist Chinese assault rifle," as he suggested in an interview in the latest edition of Outdoor Life magazine?

The Second Amendment Foundation says if the senator does own such a rifle, it wants to know where Kerry keeps it, if it is legally registered, and how he got it into the United States.

"Senator Kerry's own words once again trip him up in an apparent hypocrisy," SAF Founder Alan Gottlieb said in a press release.

"Responding to a question from Outdoor Life about whether he is a gun owner, and if so, what's his favorite gun, Kerry strongly intimates he has an assault rifle, which is illegal to own both in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C."

The Kerry quote appears on Page 82 of the October issue of Outdoor Life. He told the magazine, "My favorite gun is the M-16 that saved my life and that of my crew in Vietnam. I don't own one of those now, but one of my reminders of my service is a Communist Chinese assault rifle."

Gottlieb called it another example of Kerry running on his Vietnam service history: "Now he's talking as if he's got an assault rifle stashed somewhere, while he's been railing against their ownership by other law-abiding American citizens," Gottlieb added.

Kerry supported an extension of the so-called assault weapons ban, which expired on Monday. Last week, at a campaign stop in St. Louis, he said, "As a hunter, I have never ever thought about going hunting with an AK-47 or an Uzi or anything else."

"Senator Kerry, where's the rifle?" Gottlieb asked. "In which one of your mansions are you hiding that gun? Why should it be okay for you to have a Communist Chinese assault rifle when you think nobody else should have one? And if you don't have one, why would you intimate to Outdoor Life that you do?"

Kerry has made it a point to appeal to gun owners by staging a number of gun-friendly photo-ops on the campaign trail.

Does anyone have the link to the picture of Kerry going deer hunting with a shotgun that made the rounds a week or so ago.

I sure hope he has developed a taste for 100+ small pellets along with that tasty venison.

Sen Kerry, is it fully automatic? If so, is it registered as a machine gun? If not, you are in violation of several laws, and guilty of a few different felonies. But then again, you skated in the Nam for murdering a wounded enemy combatant, you skated in 71 for treason and aiding the enemy with your VVAW activities, and you've skated your entire Senate career by doing abolutely nothing. What an empty shell.

False. You can own them in MA. Transfer of pre-ban models in orig conf OK, at least between individuals. Not sure about dealer's stock and resale items.

Kerry is a MA senator. D'ya think the Chief of police in Boston, or the Colonel of the State Police might authorize a machine gun license for Effin'? That simple.

ARE YOU QUESTIONING HIS PATRIOTISM!!!!

BTW, what is the penalty under the UCMJ for bringing home a working enemy rifle as a souvenier? I guess we should be glad he doesn't have the B-40 (with round in the chamber) stashed under the bed!

No, I think the story shows Kerry says one thing and does another. The issue is WHY does he have an assault weapon since he doesn't need it for hunting.
That was his claim, that one does not need an assault weapon to hunt with (and the 2nd Amendment is about hunting rights)

Let's see, if the rifle is in Massachussetts he is breaking the law. If it's in another state it is the typical liberal attitude that laws were made for the little people and not the superior ones like Kerry. This guy is the worst candidate any part has ever run.

A previous thread revealed many Freeper hunters that also like to use a shotgun for hunting deer. Shotguns can fire a solid slug shell which packs quite a wallop.

SKSs were brought back from Vietnam legally.Being semi-auto there was no problem to it.

Kerry has said in the past that he still has the launcher taken from his kill behind the hooch.

Does Sen. John F. Kerry really own a "Communist Chinese assault rifle?"

Yup. Single-handedly took it off a VC while deep inside Cambodia, alone, on a super-secret mission during Christmas 1968 that President Nixon had personally ordered him to undertake when he met with him in the Oval Office at Thanksgiving, 1968. For that matter, Kerry was injured on the mission. Still has the Band-Aid to prove it.

It would be the only thing he owns, if he has one.

He doesn't own any character.

He doesn't own Teresa's fortune.

He doesn't own respect.

Kerry reminds me of he comic liar on Saturday Night live, John Lovitz. Kerry's lies are often pathetic and childish and easily discerned.

Spending Christmas of 68 in Cambodia when Nixon was saying that there were no US troops in Cambodia is a memory that was seared into my memory. Oh, Nixon wasn't president until January? It was some holiday in January that was seared forever into my memory. What? There's no record of that mission? Well it was a SEEECRET mission. The CIA sent me. Yeah! That's the ticket! I used to go on lots of secret missions for the CIA back then.

Now x42 was a very capable liar. Some of what he and Hillary said was so clever that I feel they must have had supernatural help.

In many states you have to hunt whitetail deer with shotgun and rifled slug. Not enough open range to unleash a rifle. The slugs add a degree of difficulty. It's about like throwing a rock at the deer.

"My favorite gun is the M-16 that saved my life and that of my crew in Vietnam."

From his Senate testimony, I thought he was ordred to use a 50 cal machine gun, which was the only weapon issued to him to use against people. Now we learn that he was relying on his trusty M-16.

The semi-auto SKSs were simply called "Chicom rifles" by some people before "SKS" became the commonly used term for them.
