    OBEY

    dieAntagonista

    I hope it’s ok if I say this but the second picture just may be the most beautiful poster with a machine gun (it’s a machine gun right?) in it that I have ever seen. The others are appealing also but I don’t like the colours as much.

    Also, don’t forget to CONSUME

    dieAntagonista

    So is that just another name for machine gun or is it something completely different. And also if there are assault rifles, are there also nice rifles that don’t assault you. I think they should produce more nice rifles.

    Awww. Does it shoot rainbows?

    dieAntagonista

    Thanks. As for the last part, that was a play on words. I don’t want anyone to produce more rifles but I thought it’s funny that they’re called “assault” rifles. Your opinion about the military’s work is bizarre, man.

    dieAntagonista

    I know what the military does, that’s not what I was referring to. Maybe you didn’t mean it that way but it came out kinda awkward. And yeah it’s an opinion unless you can foretell the future.

    dieAntagonista

    Duh, my bad.

    I find it interesting that the 2nd poster looks to be Chinese-influenced while China uses the Type 56, a direct copy of the AK47.

    This is a machine gun, though scaled down a bit:

    Hitler coined the term assault rifle (sturmgewehr)

    dieAntagonista

    Oh ok now I’m not as confused any more, there was a language barrier for me. I had never even heard of assault rifles but was familiar with the term Sturmgewehr. Thank you.

    dieAntagonista

    Naw it’s fine, the fact that you don’t always consider that I could misunderstand something is a compliment. Like if my English were worse you would probably do it anyway. I prefer it this way.

    And why use M16’s in all the pix? Commie kids using the arsenal of freedom kind of duality?

    Comraduderrisch

    It’s kind of subjective man.

    To an African refugee who has lost his wife and children and his livelihood to a tyrannical regime and is treated as a pawn in some dictator’s egomaniacal game an AK would seem much more a tool in his arsenal of freedom. Hell, the oppressive government he rises against could very well be using M-16s instead of AKs.

    Like say in Somalia? Government? Where?

    Error401

    Oh, here’s one that

    I think it makes the artists point, yet didn’t require shoops.

    There’s rifles, assault rifles, sub-machine guns, and pistols, basically. Rifles shoot huge bullets, like a sniper or deer rifle. A machine gun shoots these same rifle rounds (or larger bullets) very rapidly. An assault rifle shoots a slightly smaller round than a rifle, but still larger than a pistol round. Sub-machine guns shoot a lot pistol rounds very rapidly. Pistols usually shoot pistol rounds.

    What, exactly, is the point of these pics?

    Not impressed.

    That is my gun. Give it back. You are a child. It’s too big for you.
