SlideFire billboard (courtesy myfoxphilly.com)

“A billboard touting assault rifles as ‘Pure American’ as baseball and apple pie is stirring up controversy,” myfoxphilly.com reports. “Thousands of cars pass by the billboard in Chicago every day alongside a giant rifle is the American flag and Second Amendment in one corner and the Christian fish and the Statue of Liberty in the other. Slide Fire, the company behind the advertisement, is promoting how its product can effectively modify an assault rifle from semi to fully automatic.” Huh? It looks to me like Slide Fire‘s promoting modern black home defense sporting rifles as Americana. And, as the official letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives [and Really Big Fires] acknowledges, the Slide Fire device is designed for handicapped shooters. Seems like the mainstream media has a new target. So to speak.

  1. This billboard actually pisses me off. In the sense that it is a constant reminder that I live in Cook County and can’t own an AR.

      • You will. And those ranges tend to be in “home rule” towns that excluded themselves from Cook County’s ban ala Hoffman Estates (home to Cabelas.). Frankly, it doesn’t appear to be enforced – until it is. I have seen guys shoot banned firearms right next to off-duty cops at the range. Get a domestic call or something similar, however, I wouldn’t bank on getting any leeway.

    • This was definitely a “meh” article until I read down a few lines. PA gun owners love ARs and anything else that goes bang so if some prick at channel 29 doesn’t like it then screw him. UNTIL, that is, I read that this billboard is in Chicago. Now THAT is funny. I hope tiny dancer has to drive by it in his armored limo every day. What a perfect slap in the face to every Chicago elite.

    • You should come down hear to Southern Illinois, my friend. Then you’ll have the problem of figuring out *which* AR. Or perhaps going AK. Maybe getting the best of both with a Sig 556? Grrr…. decisions…

  2. Lol. The anti gunners just got trolled.

    Slide fire should prepare themselves for the huge wave of “tolerance” they are about to receive from the allegedly peaceful libs.

    10 bucks says they’ve already received death threats from “non-violent” anti gunners. Any takers?

    • Unless said disabled person owns a firearm.

      Then they is the devil. Got da devil right in ’em. Mmm hmm.

      Them and Vicky Vallencourt.

      • Or unless the disabled needs to defend themselves. Pretty sure MAIG wouldn’t go to bat for them, either. Even disabled moms don’t qualify. Unless they are stupid wealthy and also donors to the right political party.

    • The Slide Fire is for handicapped people in the way that all of the bongs sold in head shops are for “tobacco use only”.

    • If you follow the link, you will see ATF’s letter confirming that the Slide Fire is not a device to making a semi-automatic weapon a fully-automatic weapon. It is apparently designed for people with limited hand function, and allows them to fire the weapon with the less-fine motor skills of pushing with their arms instead of using a single finger.

  3. There’s a billboard, not one block from my house, for some TV company that says
    “Christmas, Hannakah, Kwanzaa, we all worship TV”
    mentioning of politically correct Kwanzaa aside, how is it ok in anyones mind to say that we “worship” TV as if it were as important as religion? I’m not even religious and this pisses me off.

    ugh… liberals…

  4. Love them shoving it in the faces of the elitist’s in Chicago , they are so full of themselves that they really think that the rest of the US will go along with their national gun control , a storm is coming and it will be devestating to the government , and their lackies , they just don’t understand that they almost already caused a 2nd Revolution last year around April , when the gun control bill if it would have passed would have been the trigger and started insurrection on a nation wide scale , remember folks there are over 1 million gun owners out there and a lot of them are so the mind that their guns will have to be taken by force , and there will not be registration , what the Feds will get is a backlash that will consume them .Be prepared and ready.Keep your powder dry.

    • funny that the last 5 major shootings in the US were by registered Democrats …go figure guess r. maddow and chris mathews along with that retard from britain piers morgan missed that the spineless bastards

  5. Question is, does Rahm get to see this billboard often? I am sure the people of chicago are tired of cleaning up his piss stains off the limo’s upholstery.

  6. I think there are way more than 1M gun owners in the US. More like 60M on the low end of the estimates.

    There are probably 1.5M (or more) gun owners that are, or would become, three-percenters.

    • amen that semi auto is as much a part of the inception as the apple pie and probably beat baseball to the states actually anti commies can kiss my ass i love it

  7. boys don’t forget to check out fostech for the “bump ski” solid piece of equipment that makes the ak sing a little louder and of course faster ah….capitalism at its best fellas the more restrictions the more our ingenuity rises
