Apparently there is no limit to stupidity!?
shame on congress
shame on judiciary
shame on corporate america
I can now understand why Benjamin Franklin wanted the Turkey as our National Bird. It would highly represent our Congressional folks.

Shouldn't the "national" gun of America be a smooth bore flintlock rifle? I mean, that's what the colonists used to defeat the British. The ones used by a WELL REGULATED militia. The very arms the founders were speaking about in the constitution. Just sayin'..........

Even if there weren't huge numbers of shooting deaths going on, do we need a national gun? Do we need a national everything? I'm in favor of the second amendment, but this is an obvious political ploy - and one in poor taste I might add.

I think it's a great idea. Legally owned guns are not issues. The left always want to attack laws when gun violence is in the news. Long guns are rarely used in gun violence. I like the idea. This will really tick them off.

Will be interesting to see if it actually gets to the House floor for a vote, and who votes for it. I'm sure it's the vary same people receiving campaign contributions from the NRA. Anyone not voting for it will be cut off the gravy train.
So we need a National Gun of the U.S.? First off, no we don't. Secondly, if we did...
Wouldn't the colt innovative revolver or Winchester repeating rifle be more appropriate given those gun inventions are what's considered the guns that won the west? They both have great historical value in our country, but given this appears to be some pr stunt by a gop, that likely won't matter. Because this is all about them, forget history, forget country, just cause division. Rinse and repeat.
The ar-15 is the favored gun of mass shootings and was first developed for the military use. Not nearly the historical valve of a colt or Winchester. What the AR-15 is known for is mass shootings, so of course a gop is all in. They continue to drink the how low can you go koolaid.

I'm torn. Not about how tone-deaf, offensive, and appalling this proposal is. But how depressingly appropriate it is, in all the wrong ways.
- Alexandra 03/07/2023
Would the 89% who are against this proposal please post "Gun Free Zone" in front of their homes ...

MilItaly weapons do not belong in the hands of a civilian to start with. The country does it need a National Gun, let alone one that has put children in graves, and that police are afraid to encounter.
The GOP needs to find a better message to bring the American people.

Vote this down. What a waste of time, no value added, while also alienating Americans divided on this issue.
- McDanny 05/15/2023
The gun used in mostly every mass shooting!!!! I can't believe this is even up for discussion. Disgusting.
- Jeffrey 05/15/2023
This is one of those asinine, stupidest bills that make me speak out like I do. Why on Earth would we as a nation and you as politicians make the AR-15 the national gun of the United States. This is the gun used most in the mass shootings occurring within the US and now we want to make it the national gun? Way to support the many people shot and killed with this gun for no reason at all. Our politicians are a joke!
- RogerSnookVotes 05/12/2023
This is just plain crazy. Please just focus on the debt ceiling adjustment so that our stock in America isn't about gunstocks but about company stocks not tanking and maintaining a healthy economy.
- Steve 05/03/2023
It's already a symbol of the U.S. in the eyes of the rest of the world that we like to kill each other and not regulate a military style weapon that has no use other than kill.
It is the most common firearm in the nation. It's the Lego of firearms. It serves a multitude of purposes to include hunting , sport shooting, competition shooting, personal protection, home defense or my personal favorite... none... just to be built and remain locked up never to see the light of day but to be admired as a piece of decoration.

Proposed Bill Would Designate AR-15 the National Gun of the U.S. - H.R.1095
- Stephanie 04/29/2023
Are you fu**ing kidding me?!? With all that our legislators could be working on to make their constituents' lives better, this is what they choose to spend their time promoting?? GTFOH
- Shannon 04/19/2023
There have already been more mass shootings than days in the year in 2023 and in 2021 nearly 50,000 Americans lost their lives in gun violence...This is egregious and reckless. We condemn this legislation and far-right politicians who value gun industry profits more than Americans' lives.
- Jeffrey 04/19/2023
This is absolutely mind blowing!!! While I respect the 2nd amendment right to bear arms, I vehemently am opposed to the AR-15 being designated as the gun of the US. Automatic rifles normally used in our military should not under any circumstances be available for regular everyday Americans. The availability of these types of weapons are seen daily in the numerous shootings we've been seeing with the recent mass shootings. While they still have smaller pistols their weapon of choice is the AR-15 type. Please think about the loss of life by these weapons and stop making it a policital clown show.
- aksteeel 04/18/2023
With all the gun violence in our country, H.R. 1095 is the most asinine bill I've ever heard put to vote. Any representative to vote in favor of such a bill should be voted out of office as soon a humanly possible. To glorify a weapon that has been used to slaughter the youngest of our citizens should be banned, not made a symbol.
- Kenneth D. 04/13/2023
What idiot in Congress came up with a bill to make an assault rifle a national symbol? Don't we already have enough problems with guns and thousands of innocent victims dying, while our elected representatives sit on your hands and do nothing?
