I Wish

Remember when hoplophobes got their britches in a twist when Glock got popular because they assumed a polymer gun meant that it would sail through metal detectors?  THEN it got popular with non LEO types, too.

Remember when the Assault Weapons Ban was enacted and ARs all of a sudden got popular because they were semi-verboten semi-auto rifles?

Of course the histrionics were unfounded, but still... there is a pattern of behavior here.  Glocks and ARs are as plentiful old gum on a city sidewalk now.

I hope the gun banners get hysterical over another cool class of weapon again soon. 

"Oh NOES!  KRISS carbine and the SCAR Heavy are extra deadly!" or somesuch.  It could be anything.

Then sales spike, production ramps up to meet demand, then prices drop.  And I'll buy something cool.  I wish they'd do that.

SOOOO tempted to join the Brady Campaign just to ask why those DEADLY ARMY WEAPONS are in the hands of Civilians. Definitely need a price break!
