Is the art done by the New Game artist? Looks like Nenecchi has quit being a video game designer to become a rifle fanatic.

His art is indeed extremely close to Shōtarō Tokunō's but it's isn't.

Depending on how you read this joke, it's either really funny, or really sad/unfortunate.

I chose the funny.

Sad and unfortunate in what way?
10/10 Dictators and Tyrants agree.. unarmed people can do nothing. Or just ask Mao, Hitler, and Stalin... how they prefer their peasants.


on an unpolitical note.. this could be an interesting read. As I was on a rifle team when I was in High School.. (oh noes! guns are bad.. lol)

I hope it does well.

"School's shooting club" could easily be misread as "school shooting club".

1 - I was refering to the number of school shootings and an alternate meaning you can make of the joke.

2 - One thing is civilian gun possession, which I don't oppose under responsible hands. Another completely different thing is guns (including assault riffles) being easier to get than a beer, mental healthcare, or for that matter, healthcare.

3 - It should be a fun watch, and a great opportunity to learn more about firearms, riffles particularly.

This precisely, thank you.

Yep, also Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu and Sabage-bu exist so this is nothing new.

So I don't know where you live, but in order to get a firearm.. you need to go through a background check!

The last time I checked no other "right" or service required you to go through a background check in order to obtain it.. not Healthcare, not beer, not Mental Healthcare.. not Milk.. not Candy.. not even voting!

So yeah.. incorrect.

Obtaining a firearm, is not as easy as the "Propaganda Machine" .. sorry I mean mainstream media makes it sound. And acquiring one without going through the proper steps is ILLEGAL.. passing more laws to make it MORE illegal is silly..

Part of our problem in the US is the Media's hyper focus on things it doesn't agree with. When you plaster a Murders face all over the news for weeks.. they become famous. People copy this because they want to be famous, combine that with the unfortunate ineptitude of the people that should be protecting us.. and yeah.



Back on topic..

I don't remember what the club name for the rifle team was.. I think it was Marksman's club or something similar.

If its a private seller, then most of the U.S. can sell you one without any background checks.

Girls with guns, one of my favorite tropes, though girls with swords is good too.
