    Sad that it’s necessary. Also sad that people are profiting.

    $600-800 for a hoodie.

    Don't know guns but it seems meaningless unless it can protect you from an assault rifle

    Hate to say that this happens at all, but as long as it’s going to happen anyway it needs to start happening in conservative communities

    I know, I know. They won’t shoot their own.

    Vestavia Hills is conservative, but that specific area isn’t. It’s where Mountain Brook, the City of Birmingham, and Vestavia meet. The church is like 400 yards from the Chabad.

    Ah yes, mass shootings and gun violence is the fault of the “government”… not pinpointed to conservatives who cash checks from the gun lobby.

    Back the blue though.

    The DISSENT is more than a product," says manufacturer CMMG. "It is a platform for us to voice our peaceful opposition to the constant attack on our Second Amendment." (Photo: CMMG/YouTube screen grab)

    Instead of Facing Ban, AR-15 Maker Unveils New, Easier to Hide Pistol Version
    "Assuming these people are serious about using these guns to make some sort of armed patriotic 'statement,' I hope no one is surprised when the next horrific event hits the news," said one gun control advocate.

    A leading gun control advocate on Thursday led criticism of a newly released highly compact AR-15-style semi-automatic weapon being marketed as a tool to oppose government and Big Tech "censorship."

    "Not-so-subtle language about buying this gun to use in some sort of holy civil war is right on their website."

    Boonville, Missouri-based CMMG calls its new DISSENT model its "most stowable" offering. The company says the 4.6-pound, 14-inch gun, which is sold without a brace (or stock), "boasts superior firepower in a small familiar package and will initially be offered in three different calibers," including NATO-standard 5.56 x 45 mm. By adding an aftermarket brace, owners can transform what CMMG calls a pistol into a short-barreled rifle.

    "The DISSENT is more than a product," the gun's "mission statement" claims. "It is a platform to voice our peaceful opposition to the censorship and infringements that affect law-abiding gunowners across America."

    CMMG also claims the gun is opposition to "Big Tech unjustly silencing" Second Amendment advocates, "erasing their First Amendment rights and the idea of democracy in the process."

    Ryan Busse—an avid outdoorsman and hunter and former firearms executive-turned industry whistleblower, author, and activist—noted that the perpetrator of the March 2021 massacre of 10 people in a Boulder, Colorado supermarket "used one of these type guns made by Ruger."

    Busse asserted that the CMMG DISSENT is "not just any AR-15. This gun is one of a growing number of 'pistol brace' guns that are meant to evade the regulation set forth in the 1934 National Fireams Act that strictly regulated 'short-barreled rifles.'"

    "Moreover, the gun is being marketed as a way to resist tyrannical government," he continued. "Not-so-subtle language about buying this gun to use in some sort of holy civil war is right on their website. Note that like [former U.S. President Donald] Trump, they slip in 'peaceful' as if an attorney advised it at last minute."

    "Assuming marketing works and assuming these people are serious about using these guns to make some sort of armed patriotic 'statement,' I hope no one is surprised when the next horrific event hits the news," Busse added.

    The DISSENT's release comes in the wake of recent high-profile mass shootings in New York, Texas, and elsewhere, and as U.S. senators hammer out—and water down—proposed legislation that, if passed, would implement a series of rudimentary gun control measures that notably do not include a renewal of a 1990s-era ban on assault-style weaponry.

    This is extremely fishy:

    It's going to turn out that this guy was a paranoid schizophrenic licensed by the ATF to deal firearms from his home.

    Doesn’t sound like it’s a mass shooting but a lot of weird rumors out there. Also pics out there but can’t verify if they’re real or not.
