Unlike the McMichael's, the son should have taken a plea deal to reduce his father's sentence. These 2, let them rot all together

Given the behavior of the parents it's hard to believe they did not play a significant role in pushing this kid toward violence. It seems like the parents were basically grooming him to be angry with the world and then put a gun in his hands.

It's like crickets over at America's favorite media.
this is the GOP though, they fetishize guns and offer zero solutions to gun violence in America. All the school shootings and murders and gun violence are all acceptable collateral damage to them, no mater what they say, since we have seen they simply refuse to do anything at all to stop this stuff.

As we can see from this GQP congressman, this encapsulates the illness that is the cancer of the GQP

How can the parents afford such well known attorneys? In the 2017 letter to Trump the wife said their HH income was $40k per year and they had to choose which bills to pay each month.

whats that one dude holding? Is that a G3 with the M4 stock?


OK internet says its a G3 clone made by PTR, which I never heard of till now.


The weapon held by Massie, bottom left, has been identified as an M60 machine gun, first developed for the US military in the late 1950s and which, with its belt-fed ammunition, became one the best known weapons of the Vietnam war.

A collector’s item, the M60 is relatively hard to buy on the open market, with sales prices estimated by some auctioneers at $69,000 or more.

Machine guns made since 1986 are banned in the US – but US federal law allows any weapons that were registered before 1986 to be traded on an approved basis.

According to Calibre Obscura, a military blogger and weapons expert, the other guns in the photograph are almost certainly semi-automatics, meaning an owner has to squeeze the trigger each time they want a shot to be fired.

At the front, to the left of Massie, a woman is holding an Uzi, the Israeli submachine-gun, which can fire up to 600 rounds a minute.

Massie’s wife, Rhonda, appears to be holding a Thompson M1SB, most likely a replica of the second world war submachine-gun, sold by its original manufacturer in the US.

In the back row, other family members appear to be holding, from left to right, a Spanish military rifle, a Belgian rifle, and two AR-15s – the AR stands for ArmaLite, the original manufacturer. One of the most popular semi-automatics available in the US, its sales have soared over the last decade.
I initially assumed the "M60" was some sort of replica, or even a wierd AR15 variant that somehow _looked_ like a fully-automatic weapon, but it seems as if the guy just has one of the remaining legal ones. Clearly vital for home defense if you're a congressman - you never know when you'll be alone against a small army of terrorists. Though really he ought to give it to Mike Pence - who, on recent evidence, has a greater need for it.

Who knew that ammosexuals virtue signaled about their sexuality. Oh wait, we did, we all did, because they never stop doing it. Ammosexuals are worse than militant vegans. A militant vegan won't kill me with a peanut (but maybe someone with an allergy), ammosexuals will gun you down cuz reasons.

Isn't this like the third or fourth (maybe more) time where a goof has run wild for hours in BoebertVille?

Theres a handful of machine guns floating around America. They were never confiscated after the ban and they get sold to collectors once in a while. I know for a fact James Cameron has a minigun. Its the one used in Terminator 2. Theres like maybe 8 left that still work.

Not saying you're right or wrong, just curious what system we have in place to verify the status of such weapons.
