    AR platforms have attracted many shooters from plinkers, hunters to long range competitive shooters. Even women are into AR's due to its lightweight system. Before making the decision to go with an AR10 or AR15, lets take a look at the comparisons and some questions surrounding the AR10 and AR15. Are AR15 and AR10 triggers interchangeable? Most AR15 triggers will physically fit and function in a current AR-10 and 308AR rifle. However the reason AR-10 and 308 AR specific triggers exist is for one main reason, military primers. The primers in military ammo often require more energy to ignite the...

    Concord, NH – Presidential hopeful Joe Biden demonstrated his lack of basic firearms knowledge yet again on Friday, when he declared that citizens should not be able to possess “a magazine with 100 clips in it.” Biden’s latest baffling comment came during a campaign stop in New Hampshire. “I believe in the Second Amendment, but nobody says you can have a round – a magazine with 100 clips in it!” he told the cheering crowd. “100 b-bullets in it,” he stammered a second later, recognizing his mistake. Understanding basic firearms knowledge has been a struggle for Biden in the past....

    Beto O’Rourke will never get the chance to take away the AR-15 kept in the home of Jeremy King of Lithia, Florida and hopefully no other Democrat will get the chance. Jeremy King and his family are grateful for that and for the right to keep and bear arms enshrined, without any asterisk, in the Second Amendment of the Constitution Democrats are claiming to be defending. Yep, that AR-15, the very same “assault” weapon owned by bitter clingers said to endanger such families and the neighborhoods they live in.

    (snip) O’Rourke, who famously declared during a presidential debate that he would “take” AR-15s and AK-47s, was confronted by a student in Iowa on Friday who described himself as a “hunter” who uses an AR-15. “What about those people who use that as a way to, you know, get dinner, who live down south who don’t really have a lot of options for food, and they don’t have money but they can get their own?” the student asked. The student went on to explain that an AR-15 is “much more efficient” at killing an animal like a deer and how...

    1. About the Trump tax cuts, Democrats like Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., claim that 83 percent of the benefits would go to "the top 1 percent, richest people in this country, and the most powerful corporations." But the Washington Post fact-checker said: "The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center found that initially more than 80 percent of taxpayers would get a tax cut, with less than 5 percent getting a tax increase." Why, then, do you keep restating what The Washington Post said isn't true? 2. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, for years, you've said, "We are now spending twice as much per...

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred confirmed to ESPN that the organization is involved in the incident, which began when umpire Rob Drake, 50, tweeted late Tuesday that he was going to buy an AR-15 rifle “because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020”

    Following the fourth Democratic debate in Westerville, Ohio, BlazeTV's Eric Bolling questioned candidates Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) about their support for a gun confiscation policy, and asked billionaire presidential candidate Tom Steyer why he thinks the economy isn't thriving under President Donald Trump. "Congressman, can you please clarify how you will get the ARs and AKs back," Bolling asked O'Rourke. "I expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If you own and AR-15, if you own an AK-47, and it is no longer legal to own that, I expect you to turn it in," O'Rourke said....

    During the October 15, Democrat debate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made clear that AR-15 owners who refuse to hand over their guns will have them taken away. O’Rourke reiterated his plan to use a government-mandated buyback to confiscate privately-owned AR-15s and AK-47s. In so doing, he claimed that each AR-15 and AK-47 in private hands is a “potential instrument of terror.”CNN’s Anderson Cooper then asked O’Rourke how he plans to get people to hand over their rifles.  O’Rourke responded by explaining that he expects complains with the mandatory buybacks. He said, “I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same...

    BATFE Drops 80% Receiver Case in California; Fears Precedent Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- In 2014, Joseph Roh had a business that dealt in firearms parts. As part of the business, he facilitated the production of lower receivers for AR-15 type firearms, from 80% receivers, in California. In the business, he or his employees would set up the 80% receiver in a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machine. Then, they required the customer to “push the green button”. BATFE believed this made the business one that was manufacturing firearms without a license. Roh was arrested in 2014. From fbi.gov: Through his business, ROHG Industries...

    If you were an ATF agent or prosecutor handling the case of Joseph Roh, you probably lost quite a bit of sleep over the past five years. That’s because Roh, who was charged in 2014 with illegally manufacturing and selling AR-15 rifles in California, recently almost forced a judge to upend decades of ATF precedent and policy.Mr. Roh’s attorney made a surprisingly simple argument in court that got him off the hook — and it almost demolished the ATF’s very definition of what a gun is, too. Through a series of concessions and deal-making, Roh walked free. The ATF agreed conditionally to drop...

    (CNN)For more than a year, Joseph Roh illegally manufactured AR-15-style rifles in a warehouse south of Los Angeles. His customers, more than two dozen of whom were legally prohibited from possessing a firearm, could push a button, pull a lever, and walk away a short time later with a fully assembled, untraceable semi-automatic weapon for about $1,000, according to court records. Roh continued his black-market operation despite being warned in person by agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that he was breaking the law. But five years after raiding his business and indicting him, federal authorities...
