Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2019-184: Headlines: Colt Conforms

As I was looking through posts on various web sites I came across one that said Colt was going to get out of the civilian AR-15 market.

If it is a simple business proposition then well and good.  Free enterprise is a feature of liberty.

But notice they were only going to stop making rifles for the “civilian” market.  At first I thought that meant they would continue making them for the military but that is not what it said.  The military does not use the AR-15.

What they mean is that they will continue to make them for the police.  So the SWAT teams that will be breaking in your front door can get them but you can’t if you decide to defend yourself.

I read a couple of articles and there was a lot of boiler plate that they had copied from some source and a lot of virtue signaling about Sandy Hook.  They also said sales were low so they were cutting their losses.  I don’t own any Colt products so I can’t really stop buying from them.  We have some friends that named their newborn Colt.  Maybe they will go back and change his name.

Might I suggest this would be a good time to sell your stock in Colt?

  1. I hope you're right. It's pretty stupid for a gun company to go anti-gun.

    1. Liberal brains have been taught that profit is nasty. They want to virtue signal. Some like Colt probably have such big government contracts at inflated prices that they figure they are immune from public opinion.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
