    To be fair to the OP, that thread is in Current Events not the Guns and Self Defense forum.

    Colt has been unpopular for a long time. I can name over 30 people who own an AR, and none owns a Colt AR. My buddy at an FFL can't even remember anyone even asking a question about a Colt firearm in the past 10 years.

    I built mine from parts and there ain't a colt part on it.

    That is because the Colt's in question, 6920's and the superb 6940LE were so swiftly sold out and relatively expensive, they could be very hard to come by for most folks who really hadn't a choice in the matter, Colt's AR's were the one thing Colt could genuinely hold head high about, they were the best in the industry, and only lost out to FN due to cost, not quality concerns. It was Colt's dismissive, if not disrespectful attitude toward satisfying public demand which gave rise to all other players in the AR industry, they were ridiculously arrogant and standoffish and it is just that which has repeatedly landed them in bankruptcy, Colt's always had a small civil footprint, which has always been a point of contention within the marketplace, this simply proves they have learned nothing, they are still fawning over leftist politics, and clearly are not comfortable catering to the public.

    The announcement I read said suspend. They say they flooded the market with the AR-15. They claim they will produce more for market when the need arises.

    You all. The firearm manufacturer, Colt is ending production of AR-15s due to lack of demand. This is real life. We’re winning. https://americanmilitarynews.com/2019/09/colt-is-ending-production-of-ar-15s/ …
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    ARs are cheap and plentiful - so much so that Colt can't sell its rifles with their usual premium price.
    This indicates exactly the -opposite- of the anti-gun loons' spin on this.
