1. Kentucky Rifle
2. Colt's "Peacemaker"
3. Spencer's repeating rifle
4. The Browning 1911
5. Stoner's AR-15/M-16

The embedded article has a nice summation of each gun.

They expect to play a spoiled-brat version of the game, in which only they would make up the rules.

Part 1: Calvinball Too many college-educated white liberals don't know how to lose and don't accept the rules when it doesn't suit them. They think that all institutions should be like the administration of Evergreen State College -- corrupt, partisan, and on their side.

Entitlement cuts, tax increases, howling seniors: This is our future, whenever we choose to face it.

The Manhattan Institute's Brian Riedl isn't trying to trigger the libs. His new plan to stabilize the debt doesn't gut welfare, doesn't repeal the New Deal -- hell, it doesn't even keep tax increases off the table, which practically makes him a lefty pariah in modern GOP circles.

We're talking weaker Social Security benefits, a total overhaul of Medicare, cuts in Medicaid subsidies to the states, and, yes, tax hikes to boot.

Riedl writes that if we don't enact reforms like these soon, we could face a debt crisis down the line. My bet is that our politicians will take the risk.
