A church in Tennessee held a raffle over Fourth of July weekend to give away an AR-15.

The River of Tri-Cities Church in Johnson City said the raffle was a part of holiday celebrations, according to a report from WJHL.

Pastor Todd Holmes told WJHL that the AR-15 was just one of many giveaways at the church, and he thought it was appropriate since it was in honor of Independence Day.

Holmes said this isn’t the first time the church has held a gun raffle. He also said the winner must pass a background check before receiving the AR-15.

Members of the congregation are no strangers when it comes to firearms. A sign on the door of the church reads:

“WARNING! This is not a gun free zone! WE ARE ARMED! Any attempt to disrupt or harm will be dealt with in an overwhelming display of force!”

This isn't /news/. Rural bumfuck raffles have guns as the top prize about 80% of the time.
>>
>>1311851
Because liberals think that part in Bowling for Columbine where Michael Moore pretends to walk out of a bank with a free rifle without a background check, actually happened as they showed it.

What happens is you get a voucher to go to a local gunshop that holds into the firearm and runs your background check before you actually get it. It happens all the time without issue, this is just pearl clutching by feckless leftoids who see "church" and "ar-15" and have a schizoid attack over it.

>Because liberals think that part in Bowling for Columbine where Michael Moore pretends to walk out of a bank with a free rifle without a background check, actually happened as they showed it.
the bowling for columbine gun thing was so retarded. the bank literally wasn't giving out free guns. It was you bought a 20 year CD and in lieu of interest you could get rich fag things, depending on how much you put down. Like they had grandfather clocks and golf clubs too. you just didn't get shit other than your money you put in back at the end. you were basically giving the bank a loan in exchange for an item then. The gun he got was a .270 weatherby rifle. the cheapest weatherby rifle is $1,500. so moore put down a ton of cash into a CD for 20 years and got no interest on it. and I'd be shocked if there was more than 1 crime committed with a weatherby per decade. if you can afford a fucking weathrby you aren't using it to commit crimes when a normal gun in that class is $200-$300 and is also not used in any crimes because its a bolt action rifle

lil tranny, you really think Teddy didn't have guns designed to kill people? Teddy owned a 1903, literally a weapon of war made to kill mexicans in cuba. He also owned an 1899 handgun, designed to kill people, that he illegally conceal carried while president

>>1311922
All assault rifles are designed to kill groups of people. That is their sole purpose in design and function.

Not saying that is a bad thing, but dont pretend that they have any other use then killing humans.
>>
>>1311923
FYI "AR" stands for "Armalite Rifle" not "Assault Rifle." You might want to learn these things before jumping into a thread about ARs.

Literally on Armalites website they describe the ar15 as an assault rifle… they also specify that this weapon is for killing humans.

>Literally on Armalites website they describe the ar15 as an assault rifle

Literally Armalite is wrong, AR-15s are not assault rifles by the technical definition of what an assault rifle is.

https://www.britannica.com/technology/assault-rifle

>assault rifle, military firearm that is chambered for ammunition of reduced size or propellant charge and that has the capacity to switch between semiautomatic and fully automatic fire.

Assault rifles are select fire, AR-15s are not. Therefor AR-15s are not assault rifles. Thank you for playing, further arguments to this point will be seen as further concessions.

Absolutely based.

>>1311925
Jesus' followers all had swords and were prepared to fight to stop the Romans from taking him. He specifically told them to stand down, because his death on the cross was required to save humanity. A noticeable difference from a certain Bar Kokhba (more like Bar Cuckba) who declared himself the messiah during Hadrian's reign, slaughtered the local Roman garrison, killed every man, woman, and child in Judea who wasn't a jew, and then promptly looked up to find twelve Roman legions led by the Emperor personally marching across Judea leading to Cuckba committing suicide and the Jews being kicked out and the province being renamed Syria Palestina.

There it is. "Classy" in your worldview means "eating the poop from another man's ass and having parades where you show your dick to kids".
>>
>>1312457
>Ar15 is still an assault rifle
it's not though
>which is the topic being discussed
I thought we were discussing how based this church is. If we're talking about whether the AR15 is an assault rifle, that's a pretty short discussion: It's not an assault rifle.
>>1312461
I don't see anything like that in the link you provided.
>>1311997
you're right but you should still fuck off back to r*ddit, schizo. Nobody wants you here.

The BuyBull doesn't mention guns. But it does say Thou Shalt Not Kill.
>the winner must pass a background check before receiving the AR-15
As the NRA are against background checks, or they would ensure it happens at all gun stores, certainly to ensure loonies are denied what they would say is their 'God-given right' to shoot up malls, schools etc, you're committing heresy against your actual god Todd: the AR-15 and it's high priests: the NRA.
That Big Book of Hearsay also says 'Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me', so an orange deity you lot worship is right out as well.

You must be 18+ to post here, and the rest of your post is headcanon that you'll hopefully grow out of by the time you're old enough to be here, but I'm gonna enlighten you with an actual bible quote.
>Luke 22:36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."
Jesus wanted his followers to be armed. Now, a sword is one of the more expensive pieces of military kit of the day. He didn't say a club, a knife, a spear, or a sling, he told them to explicitly go get the quality of weapon that a man in the Roman military would have at the time. Jesus absolutely would be pro-AR-15. Thou Shalt Not Kill also applies to MURDER, unjustified killing, as many Prophets and other holy men in the bible send a fair number of God's enemies to hell, they were the Kyle Rittenhouses of their day.
>>
>>1312509
When a Christian is a pedo, he's going against his faith. When a leftist is a pedo, he's following his faith. After all, modern progressivism was founded when Foucalt, Sartre, and De Bouvoir were in Post WW2 France agitating for the legalization of pedophilia, because exposing kids to sex early and getting them to see pleasure as the highest good would destroy the family and thus the social structures that stood in the way of the world these perverts wanted to create. Although in Simone De Bouvoir's case a lot of it was quite possibly cope, she was in love with Sartre and he was using her to procure little girls for him to drug and fuck.

Samefagging doesn't work very well here, but I understand why you're trying to deflect when we have an actual, caught-in-the-act pedo in the form of Hunter Biden and a second actual, caught-in-the-act pedo in the form of his father Joe Biden, and now that you've realized he can't win and won't step aside you're desperately looking for the next spin. After all, the left was founded by pedophiles, for pedophiles, NAMBLA funded much of the gay rights movement and the term "MAP" was coined by leftist "scholars" trying to justify it.

That's not reddit spacing.

>>1312528
The point of the Second Amendment is for the people to be as well-armed as the military. The point of Luke 22:36 is Jesus agreeing that his followers should have the same arms and armament as soldiers of the day. I suppose if you had a working brain you wouldn't be a leftist.

So swords =/= guns
I also understand why you're making IMAX obsolete with your deflecions against a pedo adviser to that which danced with a 13-year old girl. Also this:
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2016/oct/13/trump-makes-inappropriate-remarks-about-10-year-old-girl-video
>Leering at a ten-year old girl
Would any normal sane person so much as think of doing that?
If it was a Democrat dancing with a 13-year old girl, then the same leering at a ten-year old girl, you'd condemn that Democrat as a pedo?
If you do, yet not with that now a Republican who did the same, you're trying to justify it.
I condemn leftists who commit crimes. So much as thinking in a pedo way is a crime I'm sure you'll agree, >>1312550 ?

Well if you were getting your driver's license/permit for the first time back in high school, you likely opted to pre-register to vote when getting your ID. If you get you license at age 16 or 17 (depending on the state), you can pre-register to vote and get added to the voter rolls upon turning 18.
