Don't believe the Anti-Gunners. We don't live in unique times.
Gun Control supporters continue to perpetuate the notion that we are living in unique times. Unique times in which the ‘civilian’ population have an unfettered access to ‘weapons of war’. In reality they are only partially wrong. 
The American population has always had access to military arms that not only matched the capabilities but often out did what was available to regular troops. It has been common for the Military to return their rifles or ‘weapons of war’ to the civilian population that filled its ranks with Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines through surplus programs. 
What is the fascination with these ‘weapons of war’? Quite simply many that have fought for this country have built up a lot of trust in the firearms they, and those before them, carried into harm’s way. Ultimately, many people who did not serve often fall back on the, “if it’s good enough for the military, it’s good enough for me” principal. 
Throughout our history the popularity of particular actions and rifles can be traced directly to their success in combat. From muskets, lever actions, bolt actions and semi-automatics; down to even the caliber they fired, we have a rich history of adopting military arms and calibers to civilian use.
Don’t believe for a second that we are living in a unique time where all-of-a-sudden civilians have an unprecedented access to ‘weapons of war’ because it’s false. We’ve always had access to the latest and greatest developments in firearm design and technology. The question that begs asking then is: what has changed? I have my thoughts but that is a topic for another rant. What do you think?
