An analysis...

THE HEART OF TEXAS -- I don’t know about you, but personally, I am sick and tired of hearing people tell me what I do or do not need. In particular, I refer to the ongoing national debate on firearms, and whether or not anyone needs these so-called “assault weapons,” to include the AR-15 -- the most popular firearm platform in the country.  . . .

I would love to have an M-14, though. That is the rifle my Dad went through basic with, and what he was first issued during his time in Vietnam. Love the short action .308 round, too...
