    Family of AR-15 inventor Eugene Stoner: He didn't intend it for civilians. {Baloney!}

    This is a laughably stupid thing to say, Stoner had a mouth and he never opened it to say that civilians should not own an AR-15.
    For his moron family members to speak for him postmortem, is ghastly and a politicization of him, and not just his gun. They make me sick.
    He meant for the gun to be in general use by the public. He designed it for Armalite, a company selling to civilians and military customers. They were sold by the thousands to civilians while he was alive, and he never said a thing.
    Family of AR-15 inventor Eugene Stoner: He didn't intend it for civilians - AOL

    The article claims that after Stoners death in 1997, a semi-auto version AR-15 was made available to the public, which spawned dozens of copy cat weapons.

    The civilian AR-15 was being sold at least as early as 1968, and they must think that we are utterly stupid, and do not remember yesterday.
    They are dangerous idiots, I mean it, they are dangerous to liberty. And it is his family saying it!
    I think this is an insult to Stoner and his memory, and his family is atrocious for doing this. But that has never stopped the politically dangerous of the World before.

    I don't care what his family says. I wouldn't even care if Stoner said that or felt that way.

    We, The People, are quickly coming to a point where we will decide what we are willing to do to secure our freedoms.

    I am beginning to prepare my head for the likelyhood that we will soon see a time when resistance is inevitable and likely necessary to protect our constitutional rights. It will likely not be bloodless.

    I do not look forward to that time, or the necessity for it, but I will work to be ready if, and when it comes.

    Pure bullshit!!!
    I bought my first Colt SP1 (AR) in 1963, libshit family members should keep their mouths shut!.
    If he was against their sale, why did he not speak out 50+ years ago???
    He had a price like any other whore out there, and it was paid.
    I saw no protest when Knight's Armament started producing them with his blessing, so, BULSHIT!

    Pretty sure Eugene knew all about the AR/Civilian designation while he was still alive. I don't remember him speaking out about it. I remember Ruger saying civilians didn't need 30 round magazines. That didn't endear him to the gun community either.

    Bill Ruger was a whore also.

    At the AWB hearings he sold himself out with the people condemning the AR and AK publicly and with the closed door agreement that his rifles would get the OK and be exempt.
    The bastard knew his sales would climb with the others off the market, yes, another whore, but to our detriment.
    It worked, he offered 20 round mag's for his crap rifles. He lost a lot of market share in 2004 with the AWB expiring.
    Today the Ruger family has turned around on their product limitations, strictly due to profit margins.
    To the best of my recollection, Stoner NEVER questioned the sale to the US civilian market even though he had no control over those sales.
    He was used as a marketing tool by Reed Knight, he didn't protest their either.
    I guess you could say it is all a matter of semantics.

    As a final thought, Stoner conceive his rifles, for military usage, all three were adopted my various militaries in the beginning.
    In a play of words, yes, he did not intend them for civilian usage as originally planned, but, never protested the move to the civilian market.
    He was an engineer, and as such, was paid by Fairchild to develop those rifles which include the AR7, AR10 and the AR15.
    I don't think at any time while with Fairchild he was concerned with marketing, it was not his position.

    At this point what difference does it make. The world is saturated with his invention and the family has profited. Just because little Johnny spent some of the cash on a college education and got brainwashed isn't going to change a thing.
