Fairfax, VA –-( Been thinking about retiring your old AR-15A1 and buying a suppressed, short-barreled AR for home protection?

Need a new AR, because you’ve worn one out, shooting in Three-Gun matches?

Been thinking about improving your AR with a mil-spec barrel and bolt carrier assembly, a “flat top” upper with a red dot sight, a low-profile handguard, and a more effective flash hider?

If so, Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) has a plan that can help you.

Recently, DeLauro introduced H.R. 1745, the “Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act,” to provide a “$2,000 refundable tax credit” to anyone who turns an “assault weapon” over to a law enforcement agency. Depending on the market value of the gun you would give up to get that $2,000, DeLauro’s tax credit could be enough to pay for a new AR, magazines, and a case of ammunition.

DeLauro is one of the most anti-gun members of Congress. She hates AR-15s and, like other anti-gunners, she has no regard for Americans’ right to own them. As radical a gun control advocate as they come, DeLauro says;

“Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense. There is no reason on Earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for the battlefield.”

Were we inclined to argue, we could point out that DeLauro is wrong. The AR-15 is the most popular rifle for defensive purposes today. It’s the most widely used rifle for marksmanship training and competitions centered on defensive firearm skills. And it’s illogical to claim that firearms aren’t “about . . . self-defense,” and in the next breath claim that they are “designed for the battlefield,” where everything is about surviving the enemy’s attempt to kill you.

But there’s no point in arguing with DeLauro or anyone else who thinks that if you have any right to firearms at all, it doesn’t extend to the most generally useful rifles on the planet. In their minds, anything that makes a firearm more effective or user-friendly argues against its legality.

Instead, let’s devote our energy to defeating such people at the polls and the insulting, disrespectful and intellectually bankrupt ideas they promote in the court of public opinion. And when we achieve victories, let’s capitalize on our momentum and roll up freedom’s adversaries like old carpet.

Please contact your U.S. Representative and urge them to oppose this legislation.

“Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense. There is no reason on Earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for the battlefield.”

So why do we let police have them?


Could be a market for building an entry level AR and then turning it in for the $2K.
Wonder how much they will pay for a Ghost Gun or a 3D printer ?

My Olympic cost me $700. If Keith Richards’ love child wants to give me two grand, SIGN ME UP!

No wonder Pelosi is in that picture. Even she looks good next to that dried up, alcoholic looking train wreck. The money she makes in Congress should afford her a brown paper bag to cover that mug.


i thought at first glance that was Keith Richards.


both are totally BRAIN DEAD and UGLY – you notice the states they are from starts with a C – Colorado will join next


Can you imagine waking up next to one of those harpies? Gives me a chill.


You’re sure that’s a woman? It looks like Klinger’s (M.A.S.H.) older brother. It’s hard to believe a non-retouched photo could make these two look any worse. Come to think of it… I’ve heard it said the camera can only record what it’s pointed at.


And Still “Shall not be infringed” is ignored the law was placed to allow civilians the weapons required to serve in the militia including cannons even


Now just imagine arguing that the american public should be able to purchase surplus M1A2s and the requisite magazines from the army stockpiles.

Can I get an M270 in pink for my wife?


Uh… $2,000.00 tax credit is not $2,000.00. Just don’t want “youse’ to run out and spend it before you get it.


It could be. If you made $50k and had write offs of say $15k which they already withheld, and on top of that you got a $2k tax credit that is not a deduction, it is a credit which would mean you had $2000 less tax and would get a check for that amount. Who does this, probably none of us because we aren’t afraid of them so we don’t over pay withholding so it wouldn’t work it would just go toward what you owed.


I knew there might be a good use for polymer , blem and shotout ar15’s . $350 for a $2000 tax credit hmm $1650 profit


Damn,would you look at the face on that skank ? Is that Nancy Pelosi cheering on the skank ?


That’s just Pelosi cheering on her more evil twin.
