How could a beefy rifle with a FREAKING CHAINSAW on it be anything but "clearly not real and not a threat"

Who the fuck in their right mind puts a chainsaw on the bottom of a rifle, that's clearly not real and not a threat.

I put a chainsaw on the bottom of a rifle.  It's completely real and definitely a threat to anyone who fucks with me.

I'm ready for when the Apocalypse hits.

"I know little about the UK gun law, so please explain something to me. If you can make a toy gun gold so that it is "clearly not real and not a threat" then why couldn't a criminal just spray paint his submachine gun gold or orange or something before committing a crime? Further, if real guns are illegal int he UK (from what i understand - please let's not get into the discussion of actual validity of gun control yadda yadda yadda) then why do they need to be crazy colors at all? They're obviously ALL going to be fake *OR* flat out illegal. Correct?"
The tip of toy guns is sprayed orange so that people dont get alarmed when they see someone walking around with it.

Well that's what Branthog is saying, why can't a guy with a real gun spray paint the tip of his gun orange ? Unless you can't buy orange spray paint in the UK for whatever reason, cause you know that be pretty fucked.

Replica weapons in the UK can cause accidents if someone is seen with one. From a distance it might not look fake, or look like a kids toy. So to stop someone from assuming little billy is in walking to the local park with an AK47 or in this case a Lancer it gets spray painted gold.

Then there is also the issue with BB/Airsoft guns that are NOT childs toys.

It took me about seven months to finally get it to work and be active.  I can't, like, cut a log with it while being able to shoot with it, and it kept heating up WAAAAY too much to even hold it in the first few months.  However, I finally got it to work, and it's fucking sweet.
I keep it in the gun cabinet at my parents' house, though.  Therefore, if the zombie apocalypse hits, I'll have to go over there and unlock the cabinet first.  So up until that point, I'm just going to have to use my trusty black Louisville.  = D

Well if someone would want to rob a bank and pull out a gun with a orange tip everybody would think it is fake and will not listen to the bank robber. Thus if you want to use your gun to threat people to do something it has to be black.

I have a lot of free time.  Very few people know how hard it is to heavily modify an AR15.

I have only posted pics once, and that was on the official AR15 forums a long time back...and they got quickly deleted for my own safety.
Apparenly, having a heavily modified AR15 in the U.S......especially one that has a chainsaw-style attachment to it......is illegal as hell if it is able to be considered "active".

Therefore, I already know that everyone is going to cry "bullshit" against me...but it's okay.

it might seem like its odd that theyve done this,
but surely from seeing Gears of War you realise that it is A VERY BIG THREAT!
