Lets see a liberal get shot with an “assault rifle” in one knee, then a 12 gauge slug in the other then ask them which one is worse.

I have no assault guns
I have home defensive weapons - such as a pot left by my ex-wife , my irish shillelagh , a breezy kilt , and “chicken legs” that would scare a podiatrist .
I have two bottles of Jameson that I will defend to the death , unless the perp brings cheese and crackers !

I will admit, however , that I have grenade and RPG envy !

“Assault weapon” is a n airy non defined term.
It is on order with “Military style feature” or “High Capacity”

They just change the definition over and over again of what those terms mean.

Always moving the goal posts.

In 1776 a flintlock was a “military style feature”.

Yeah, I would like to try a little indirect fire deer hunting with mortars just for kicks.

I’ll take the leg shot from one of those scary black guns over a shotgun blast any day of the week.

The M4 is “select-fire” - one can choose between semi-automatic (single-shot) and “burst-automatic” (3-round bursts with a single trigger pull).

An M2 .50cal machine gun is “full-automatic”

I have a 12 gauge shotgun which holds 6 shells...If I use 00buckshot there are 9 large pellets in each shell I can fire off 54 pellets in about 10 seconds....

There are two things most of these mass murders have in common: prescription psych meds and gun free zones. Yet NONE of the measures proposed do ANYTHING about those two obvious factors.

The Democrats manufactured the conditions that led to these tragedies, yet NO ONE has held them to account publicly.

I would agree...prescription meds, these trendy violent video games, a fair segment of society that ought to be in a mental facility, and fake back-ground check situations have all contributed to this. But we have had mass shootings/killings going all the way back to the 1780s.

To say that this problem amounts to some required solution....when around 700 people die from blunt object attacks?

Folks seem to jump up and get worried over anything that lasts on CNN for more than 24-hours. I’d even refer to this as “sudden rage”, where you now turn your rage on, and off...as quickly as you flip the TV channel.

Yeah, for sure.

The libs refer to the civilian version of the M-16 as powerful weapon which has no place out in the general populations possession. Actually, the .223/5.56mm is illegal to hunt deer with in some states as it lacks the knock down power to make a clean kill.

True, but you didn’t go far enough. The M4A1 has a full-auto selection and typically used by special forces. If I recall correctly, the military decided to go with 3-rounds bursts as a way to cut back on use of ammo. Too much “spray and pray” going on. Almost all grunts have the M4, although I think I recall Al Gray, former USMC Commandant, establishing a squad system where one or two men would be issued the A1, another would have a SAW, and the rest would carry the standard M4...my point being that the A1 was not and probably still not totally restricted to special forces.

Thanks for the update. I only had direct experience with the M4 (3-rd burst) model.
