    Me and my wife just got home from Bass Pro, I was looking at the rifles and wanted to see what they had in a AR-15 style. He only had one and it was camo. I asked to look at it anyway even though I want to get black. while I was checking it out, I asked if they were going to get any black ones in. He informed me that because they were a hunting type store, they were not allowed to sell "Black assault type rifles". I hadn't heard of that before. :crazy-1:

    "Political Correctness" (which is anything BUT correct) strikes again.

    When Gander Mountain in Beaumont first opened several years ago they also would not carry "Assault Weapons". After a year or so they had 1 or 2 in glass display cases for sale. Last month when I went in there they probably had over 20 AR's right next to the other rifles.

    What is real Ironic is they sell Glocks, but those are just black and ugly.

    Hell the Cabelas in Ft. Worth had a belt fed MG42 a few months ago. BPS kinda miffed me a bit when I found out.

    The black coloring makes the rifle ten times more deadly. They are just thinking of the children.
