I though about whether this topic should be here,or guns and gear. The Political component sent me here.
I know that we are all into protecting our 2a rights,I believe we all want to live in a safe society. I also want to believe that none of us wants to advocate for any type of new or old slavery,monarchy,or socialist( including communism type rule- devoid of guns and ammunition).
I say all of this to ask this question first. Is it possible that the push against the rights of guns owners is in part or in whole due to the following:
1)The technological advances coming down the road with the military in the small arms arena?
Specifically knowing that the civilian market usually draws from the military market.
The focus of the question is based on the new telescoped( tele in the title) ammunition and weapons being prepared for the military.
- lethality is off the charts,weight is reduced,size is increased(6.8mm) , carry capacity is increased and is viewed as a replacement to the standard rifle and the old s.a.w.(squad auto weapon).
3This will most likely translate at some point to the pistol,upon technology refinement,and loading and carry capacity,and lethality.
4With modular systems( the telescoped prototypes and being made by many with sig Sauer in the lead at the moment and Textron close behind.
Is our battle just about the 2a or is it also about what the political animals know is coming,and restricting the rights of a free people, before the devastating technology hits that is deemed to keep us free,(at least globally).
Fyi- in General- telescoped ammunition looks like a small rectangular box or a lip stick tube size,with the bullet surrounded by the propellant. Is does not look like a current cartridge(rocket shaped). It is much more lethal.
Hybrid ammunition may or may not look like what we all use currently.
There will be a lot of money on the table as it works through the gun and manufacturing markets.
