If you really want to understand how stupid and silly things have gotten in the gun control debate, keep in fact that the Administration is now SIMULTANEOUSLY:
A. Denouncing the availability of SMALL-caliber semi-automatic non-military rifles (e.g., .223 AR-15s) to civilians while
B. Actively selling LARGE-caliber semi-automatic military surplus rifles (e.g., .30-06 M1 Garland's) to civilians.
I'm in favor of the Civilian Marksmanship Program, by which the government sells surplus military rifles to civilians, but if military guns are a problem, why is the government selling them?
