Those photos are consistent - both men are armed with the weapon of their time. Minutemen would have been carrying a magazine fed, semi-automatic rifle if it had been available.
I find it strange a Marxist is so anti-gun.
Address of the Central Committee to the Communist League
I agree with Marx on economics and not gun control. Listen, the second amendment was written in a time when the US had just broken off from British rule, and so the US government thought it appropriate to allow it's citizens to carry arms, so as to be easily mobilised, if Britain tried to invade. Marx's thinking was for workers to be able to start a violent revolution, if necessary, against capitalists. I think, in 2015, you have to be a little bit fucked in the head, to think that logic still applies. Why can't people compromise? If people want to shoot at a range, I have nothing against that, but leave the guns at the range. If hunters need rifles for hunting, give hunters special licenses. Ordinary citizens do not need guns for any reason, and the current situation causes way too much death in the United States. Being anti-gun control is like being a climate change denier, as you are going against all the science around the issue.
You'd have to take away guns from citizens first, before that could happen, but I think that would be a good idea. I am not totally against the police having guns, but I think the radical militarisation of the police force is going way too far. There should be strict policy around firearms for police, so there is accountability.
Seriously, you're sounding like a climate change denier.
