Gun Tweet of the Day: Well Exactly Edition

MM’s right: what kind of country makes it illegal to sell lawn darts? Well, not illegal to sell. Just illegal to import. But you know what he means, right?

    You’ve never read Atlas Shrugged?
    As for that AR; I tear it apart and make a practical MSR out of it

      Why are MM’s eyes brown? For the same reason he might be confused with a full diaper. Only lawn darts made of Reardon metal are illegal.

        I had a set of Jarts made with Orren Boyle’s steel. They were crap.

        1. avatar Sammy says:

          I bet you had to back order them. But no one could blame Orren . It wasn’t his fault!

    Illegal to sell in to the US? No. Illegal to own, no.

      They were also banned due to their risk to young children, not humans. And while we’re all riding the banwagon, lets ban baseball and football, do you know how many children are injured or killed every year playing those games?

      1. avatar JOE MATAFOME says:

        I think most children are human, but I’m not sure about a few of them lil buggers. I think they should ban steak knives next, so some poor little kid doesn’t lose a pinky while cutting into their prime rib.

        1. avatar Tony says:

          Lets just ban gravity since falls tend to kill more people than anything else.

  3. avatar Sanchanim says:

    OMG lol
    Yup oh well..
    Mr Moore is hopefully going to see the light, maybe, eventually..
    Hey does he have a CCW or armed guards???

    1. avatar Joke & Dagger says:

      Grade A HYPOCRITE! Dudes worth $50 Million and travels with armed guards and eats enough to feed a medium size African village.

  4. avatar Ross says:

    Hey Mike that a mighty fine look AR, know where I can get one just like it?

  5. avatar James says:

    MM is a slob….

  6. avatar SD3 says:

    A sane person would use the firstt to highlight the absurdity of the second. Naturally, Jabba the Moron argues the reverse.

  7. avatar blinkypete says:

    That AR would be illegal to import as well.

    1. avatar Lance says:

      Good point in Canada you can own a Chinese AR a so called CQ in M-16A1 or M-4 style models. You cant here.

  8. avatar Accur81 says:

    Played some with the real deal, old school, steel tipped “jarts” back in the day. Actually my brother and law and I threw them back and forth at each other (unless that’s patently illegal, in which case I’m only being facetious. I believe such activity was legal at the time). And yet here I am, not quite dead. I think I’ll take a walk…

  9. avatar Brother Bear says:

    They also banned those little roll around seat/tray things that I spent most of my infantile childhood cruising around in.

    Why? Cause “kids fall down stairs” in them. Or.. “cause kids can tip over against a woodstove and can’t get away” when in them.

    Where are the parents? Who leaves a kid unattended at the top of a staircase anyway?!!!

    If we just banned enough stuff, then we could all live forever!! And never be hurt, and never accidentally consume more calories than we intended and nobody would be sick ever!!! Yeah!!!!

    1. avatar DaveL says:

      Why? Cause “kids fall down stairs” in them.

      I did. Twice, if I recall correctly. That might have been one of the least dangerous things I’ve done in my childhood while my parents weren’t looking.

      1. avatar Swarf says:

        Me too. Took a flying run off the back steps, apparently. Still got the scar. Not quite dead.

  10. avatar In Memphis says:

    What stock is that in the AR and is it any good? I kind of like it.

    1. avatar AznMike says:

      It looks a lot like the Magpul M93 stock which is no longer produced and was replaced by the Magpul UBR. However, it could also be the Ergo F93 which also looks a lot like it.

      1. avatar AznMike says:

        Nevermind, looks like phillium beat me to it. Sorry about that.

        1. avatar In Memphis says:

          Thats okay and thank you anyways

  11. avatar SCS says:

    Hey Mikey, STFU you fat Douchebag.

  12. avatar phillium says:

    Ergo’s version of an old magpul design. They bought the rights to repro them. Very heavy but cool. Receiver extension/buffer tube is built into the top part and provides a consistent cheek weld.

    1. avatar In Memphis says:

      Thanks Phillium, Ill check it out

    2. avatar In Memphis says:

      I just looked it up and ironicaly have been wanting the Magpul UBR. I like this a lot better and for $100 less.

  13. avatar Lemming says:

    Apparently you can import spare parts for your Jarts. So you can order bodies, you can order points. It’s unclear if joining spare part bodies to spare part points is a 922(r) violation.

  14. avatar Lance says:

    He is only uglier than stupid you can buy lawn darts still. A AR-15 is also bit more expensive. Some one make a petition to have Micheal Moore sent to GitMO!!!!

    1. avatar C. Walther says:

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think he already rafted over there once.

      1. avatar lolinski says:

        …But they threw him out when he ate the prisoners.

      2. avatar Tony says:

        He didn’t raft there, he was the raft that got there.

  15. avatar MOG says:

    Ban eating utensils, be careful, keep your fingers away from your eyes. Ban food, darn stuff makes you fat. Ban cars, they kill, bad drivers don’t. Legalize drugs they make you mellow. Ban big soft drinks, and super sized MacDs. Make cows wear cowalatic converters, horses, diapers, no nail files over 4 inches. There a lot of laws, but laws do not protect you, a crime is only a crime after it has been committed. Then the law comes and runs the crime scene tape, and draws an outline around your body. Firearms are not for offense in a civilian scenario, they are for defense, till the law gets there, like, next Tuesday. M. Moore has never been in a situation, and most likely, most of us have not either. The difference is, in my opinion, M. Moore would roll belly up, where as most of us would rather fight to defend ourselves, and others.
    I can, and have, used edged weapons, in a different world, long ago. In my house, on my terms, my knife trumps a gun. But, I have a pistol, 7 rounds, and an extra mag. too.

    1. avatar lolinski says:

      There is someone who once said:

      “You know, the world isn’t run by the laws written on paper. It’s run by people. Some according to laws, others not”

      That quote is from the videogame Mafia:City of Lost Heaven, even though it is from something as “frivolous” as a videogame it is still true.

  16. avatar jwm says:

    Well, mikey, the rifle is protected by the constitution. Along with your rights to be a braying ass in public. See how that works. As for the lawn darts. Meh. Who gives a fvck.

  17. avatar James says:

    I wonder what a State sponsored buy back on lawn darts would yield?

    1. avatar Casey T says:

      Good one, LOL.

  18. avatar Mark Horning says:

    I miss lawn darts. My kids would LOVE lawn darts…

  19. avatar speedracer5050 says:

    Wonder if I could stick my size 11 1/2 steel toes boot so far up his ass he could see it with the backside of his ignorant eyeballs??
    I have 2 or 3 old pairs of steel toes I would be willing to sacrifice for practice and completion on him!!!

  20. avatar Mr. Lighter says:

    30 seconds of googling found me a reasonably priced set of lawn darts. I’ve checked every local gun shop and I cannot for the life of me find an AR in anything other than .22LR. I’m finally at an economic point where I could have afforded one, and then Feinstein just had to start talking about an AWB…

    1. avatar Lolinski says:

      All ARs are 22 caliber.

  21. avatar dan says:

    More kids are killed by falling TVs than by guns. I think they should be registered and be equipped with power button locks…for the children, people!

  22. avatar GS650G says:

    Which one of those items could save your life? That’s a better question. I also don’t think lawn darts would do much to dissuade government tyranny. Mike picked two unrelated objects to try and make a point but that’s OK since his fan club doesn’t care. Nor do they notice he used “cause” instead of “because” in the sentence. I’m thinking he doesn’t know any better.

  23. avatar James says:

    Moore is right, America is not the land of the free everyone says it is.

  24. avatar Ralph says:

    I would buy a set of lawn darts, but I don’t have a lawn. Does anyone know where I can find a set of carpet darts?

    1. avatar Derek says:

      There’s a d!ck joke in there somewhere…

  25. avatar J- says:

    Can you guess which one of these you have a constitutional right to possess?
