Modern Musket

PWS makes a feel good video for a new line of rifles:

0:37 – RKBA is Right to Keep And Bear Aresol (and spray it in kids faces) #MERICA

I’m really not a fan of the term “Modern Musket“.  It appears to be one of those brands made solely to educate people on why the 2nd Amendment actually does include rifles like AR-15s and not just muskets that the founding fathers had… I get it but I don’t talk to anti-gun brick walls, so I can’t relate.  Additionally, I think a lot more care should have been put into their designs so they don’t look so Microsoft Paint-ish. The website in general needs massive work too… but hey whatever pays the bills.  I’m sure plenty of people must be buying that stuff.

Modern-MusketThe makers of the videos PWS on the other hand, and their cartoon Half Cocked is (was? Is it still even around?) so terrible it hurt my soul, I actually get excited for them when they come out with something that isn’t as bad that.  Most of their videos are actually pretty good, and if nothing else have a high production value (like this one).

Thoughts?

I hadn’t heard the term modern musket until this (perhaps I need to read even more gun blogs!). While it can be considered part of the argument against gun control, I see it as referencing the bond between the founding of our country and today, and the freedoms they fought for and we continue to fight for. And that logo drives the point home, striking the pin on the head, so to speak.

I’m with you, this term is new to me as well, and it gives validity to the anti-gunners statement that “arms” meant muskets. I’m sorry, I hadn’t heard that arms were redefined as only muskets. I guess the military needs to get some muskets. All those military arms must be some other category then “arms” then.

Where I think it would be a good thing to define “arms” to be small arms, I’m afraid if the government today tried to define it we’d all be holding sticks and knives.

The founding fathers seemed more generous in their trust of power to the people then today’s politicians.

Lol no backup irons? It’s clear they don’t operate in operations.
Although in all seriousness why would you not have them?
Good video though, but hey, like Endo Mike said, anything from PWS is better than half cocked

I can agree with that, of course I started out with irons before getting an aimpoint so I guess that’s why, and I also use them for a more accurate setup at longer ranges so I suppose I’m a little biased to begin with

I thought the right-wing “values” and prayer stuff was a bit circle-jerky, but otherwise not bad.

When someone tosses out the “founding fathers couldn’t envision automatic weapons” crap, not only do I counter with the fact that automatic weapons did in fact exist prior to 1776, but my favorite line is “they also couldn’t envision the Internet”.

Boom.

The modernmusket.com site is definitely in dire need of a code update but that logo owns.

So sappy, I had to wipe myself with a pancake. At least they didn’t use the “sheepdog” cliche’.
