Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

I thought to respond to the "people don't need…" arguments against firearms.

People don't need iPhones.
People don't need Porsches.
Men don't need maternity care.
People don't need Common Core.
Girls don't need HPV vaccines.

People may want these things, they may even be considered helpful by some. But they are not needed.

If you don't want an iPhone - don't purchase one.
If you don't want a Porsche - don't purchase one.
If you don't want men to be covered by maternity care - don't purchase the ACA plans.
If you don't want Common Core - go to private school, home school or move.
If you don't want the HPV vaccine for your daughter - don't get it.

If you'd like a well manufactured, American-Made firearm, PSA may have something for you.

It's a choice.

Re: “Blow off summer steam with indoor go-karts and lazer tag at Charleston Rush

We have a go kart place similar to this in the city. I have always wanted to go because it sounds like a lot of fun. They have you first do a timed lap to see where you place and then you start the race and go for around a half hour to an hour. I think it would be fun because these go karts are a lot quicker than the ones at the arcade.

Do you have any older pics. But it was in the late 70's. I wish you could find older pics.

Re: “Hampton Park was once home to bison, otter, and even a lion

In the late 50s and early 60s, I spent lots of Sundays lounging at Hampton Park. My friends and I would take our Sunday dinner and eat it at the park. I remember the monkeys, lion, deer, peacocks, bird house and bison. We would swing on the vines in the arbor area, mostly getting run off by guards when caught. Good memories, indeed.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

Wow, "wiser." Wow.
Perplexing post. Either you represent the pulsing, mainline hatred and anger boiling within rank and file tea baggers that violently loathe all Americans who don't share your exact perspectives (we'll call them "the lower classes") and you don't write well, or, you're a clever troll parodying said tea baggers.

Then I read your other posts, and yeah, your hatred is real.
So, there are 2 Americas.
Either one is a panhandler/whore/non gun owner (all things you've somehow conflated into a single strawman villainous opponent). Or, one does own gun, and are therefore a healthy, happy, complete Capitalist. I like how you include the meme that the best charity is to buy guns. Because, of course...

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

Most of these comments are about what I figured I'd see. To hell with capitalism, starting a business and hiring veterans - it's all about quitting your job to stand on the corner with a sign, looking for free money.

Why buy a firearm when you can be compassionate and purchase a crack rock for the less privileged? Or, help support these lower classes by throwing them $10 for a BJ in your car. Who knows, with enough BJs, these people may be able to one day own their own cars. Point is, guns are the devil and as long as there's an army of people looking for handouts, no one needs to be spending their hard earned money on any of their own hobbies.

That's what I've learned from The City Paper.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

As a matter of fact I know plenty of people who hunt with an ar-15, and they're mostly women. Fact is it has a low recoil so it doesn't "kick" like a traditional. 308 or .270 and such. And before you say you don't need 30 rounds to take down an animal, you're only gonna get 1 possibly 2 shots before it runs off. While I chose to use a more traditional hunting rifle, my wife choses her ar, her own personal preference, which has been outfitted with a long range scope making it only practical for 1 shot at a time. In closing, as long as you're hunting from a safe elevation you're always pointing down, making the .223 as safe as any other high powered rifle. Btw, they still only fire 1 shot at a time. I think most people's bias on these machines comes from the misconception that they are fully automatic, when in reality unless someone has modified it, it's still 1 round per pull of the trigger.

Re: “Hampton Park was once home to bison, otter, and even a lion

When I was growing up my family visited Hampton Park every Easter for the required pictures in front of the Azaleas. Of course the highlight was the zoo where we would stare at the lion, hoping that it would wake up. When we would tire of that we would head to the bridges to feed the ducks and then finish up the day with a visit to the concession stand. May I miss those days...

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

I own guns so I have to say I believe in the right to possess them. I have a Colt Grand African Win Magum Rifle and a Colt Single Action Army Hartley & Graham as well as a few other more contemporary rifles and guns. All require real marksmanship and skill to use and are the real porsches of the gun world. However, that said I see no need for AR-15s or any other gun in that class except for military use. Its certainly overkill for self defense, it will NOT save you from the zombie invasion and I would hope no nitwits are hunting with it. (Yes, some idjits do right here in SC - disgusting). I am all for a total and complete ban on these type of weapons as there really is no need for them except for pleasure, zombie defense and mass murder. A lot of the guys I know that own guns feel the same way. The real facts are more than Half of Mass Shooters used Assault Weapons and High-Capacity Magazines in all the mass shootings in the US. I would like for Mr. McCallum to succeed selling real guns, not these things - or sell them only to the Police and Military.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

You guys do not know anything about brain injures. Just cause you have an injury it doesnt make you violent or crazy. Sane people kill other people everyday.

Some of you are right you do not need an AR-15 but its purchase as a recreational thing much like a 4 wheeler or a boat. I own my Ar-15 and enjoy shooting it at the range.
