What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Ok, that's interesting.

They guy stated that the "mid-length gas system" caused less recoil.  And yet (I suppose for time constraints) he didn't explain how it causes less recoil.

Truthfully, I'm hard pressed to even desire "less recoil" on an AR type rifle, assuming that it's spewing 5.56 mm rounds downrange.
Anyways, it does look cool and sound cool indeed.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

Well, at least somebody is finally admitting that the M16/M4/etc. is a carbine, not a rifle.
