"Military grade" = lowest bidder "high power" = 223/556 were originally manufactured as varmint rounds. You lefties keep saying those phrases like they are nuclear weapons or some shit. A 223/556 round has a smaller diameter than a pencil.
The definition of military grade is basically “what ever the military believes to be an adequate firearm for their needs.” It has no definitive definition.
The government always uses the lowest bidder whose product meets their criteria of durability, serviceability, accuracy and modularity, for everything. There are basically laws, including the national budget, that require them to do so… The lowest bidder making an AR-15 assault rifle is still making a fucking AR-15 assault rifle. That AR-15 assault rifle is still a military grade weapon, it’s primary purpose is still intended to be use by the armed forces during combat. Personally, I don’t want my dentist or my accountant to own weapons used by armed forces during combat.
Like guns, definitions of things have also changed in the past 228 years. I know this might be a difficult moment for you, I’ll give you some time to let that sink in.
Also I really enjoy how people say “you lefties” like it’s a ~sick burn~. Like, yes? My political alignment tends to fall on the left side of the spectrum? “Lefties” is not an insult… The only time it’s been an insult was back in the 80′s when the nuns at Catholic schools used to tell left handed kids they were possessed by the devil or something ridiculous like that and that they would go to hell if they didn’t learn to use their right hand.
