Are AR-15’s weapons of war? Here’s what a former Fort Benning commander had to say

A former Fort Benning commander tells us about anti-gun-safety folks:

“…The AR-15 is ACCURATELY CALLED a ‘weapon of war.’ … Don’t take the bait when anti-gun-safety folks argue about it,” he wrote. “They know it’s true. Now you do too.”

General Eaton,

Looks like DOD fails to control their weapons of war right here in the USA. Anybody fired over this?

Military ordnance shipments go unsecured and unsupervised inside the US, 20 years past 911:

Military Stumped by Stolen Box of Armor-Piercing Grenades

“Investigators determined the waylaid grenades were last seen eight months prior on an ammunition train that rolled out from Florida.”

Homer Simpson at the wheel:

“Upon arrival, workers didn’t verify whether anti-theft seals on each container were intact. An inspector didn’t check the seals the next day either, later saying it was because he couldn’t see them.”

“Military investigators would conclude that no one checked the seals in the weeks after the train departed Blount Island.”

This article includes an excellent comment section that appears to be unfiltered/suppressed by politicians or the mainstream press.

June 2022 update: Looks like all comments have been striped away from the above article.

For Years, US Army Hid, Downplayed Extent of Firearms Loss

“Using the unique serial numbers assigned to every weapon, AP identified 19 missing firearms that were not in the registry data. This included a M240B machine gun that an Army National Guard unit reported missing in Wyoming in 2014.”

The Army could not explain the discrepancy.”

Retired Lt. Gen. Honore calls for ban of AR-15s, stricter gun laws

“…AR-15s are responsible for the vast majority of mass shootings in the United States and should be banned like sawed-off shotguns and machine guns were banned decades ago…”


The Dept. of Defense has a truly poor track record with undeclared wars. This record goes back to 1949, the year DOD was established.

Some random thoughts and questions for the generals:


Any concerns about eroding trust of people in uniform when LE response info is hard to come by after school shootings, The Joint Chiefs of Staff struggle with decades of undeclared/unwon wars, yet we are told by retired generals that American ownership of firearms should face further restrictions?



Any concerns about a society where:

Sports gets it right. More info is better.

Sports culture is more open and honest. A bad call from the ref will be seen and reviewed instantly.

LE and government agencies:

Small children are killed at school, good people are facing new restrictions on legal firearms – sorry folks, video and voice recordings from the crime scene are not available.

More Information Is Better – The NFL Knows This



Can you let us know how sending US Troops to Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, etc., is somehow defending the constitution.


Is the freedom talk just for federal holidays and overseas military operations?

Port Townsend and the Sound of Freedom


The US should maintain strong and ready military forces.

The US Armed Forces have attracted many good people over the years.

In some cases, the US Armed Forces provide for our security. That’s as good as it gets.

In terms of American rights and freedoms- The Dept. of Defense has no more say than the Dept. of Agriculture.

Maybe Get Away From The Bragging About Freedom?
