Also I love how they don't even mention actual guns or gun rights or the Second Amendment at all because 2017 is all about the death of subtlety and making what was previously subtext the very fucking obvious in your face text.

Hmm. Seems like an excellent candidate for a spoof.

I don't think I even have appropriate words to respond to that. It looks like a trailer for a terrible dystopian movie.

Like if there weren't a bunch of armed paranoid  lunatics out there, that video would be fucking hilarious in how dumb and over the top and beyond parody it is, but welp.

So, now might not be the best time to tell you that I really want to buy an AR.  I will tell you next week.

Most AK variants are cheap pieces of shit.  I will buy a quality, American-made firearm. Goddamn it.

You already have more than one gun. Also you should give me the money instead.

It is. It's the sequel to The Truman Show.

"Clinched fist"? Is this a lynching reference?

"Clenched' maybe, but 'clinched' sounds like an amalgam of clenched and lynched

nah

eta: like I hear what you're talking about, but it's just an accent.

eta2: oh, I just realized the "clinched" made it into the captioning. ....   well, I still say her accent may have played a role.  possibly the captioner (or computer?) got tricked by said accent.  after all, "clinch" is a word too.
