“BREAKING: Houston High School on Lockdown After Reports of Assault Rifle Shootings”

Didn’t that “assault” rifle read the “gun-free sone” signs?

I’m not sure why our first reaction needs to be to get defensive about how this might affect gun rights. How but some concern for the people in harm’s way?

The 2nd Amendment can be discussed later.

More crappy reporting...

The "shootings" (implying that someone was shot) are apparently some nut-job firing his rifle into the air.

That's not what "shooting" means in this context to most people.

Nothing to do with the school, evidently, although maybe better to lock it down if it’s in the neighborhood.

Sounds like a Mexican illegal celebrating a successful drug deal.

Your average reporter wouldn’t know an AK-47 from a Cadillac. They see something that doesn’t look like grandpa’s double-barrel duck gun, they call it an AK-47.

Oh yes. It's much more menacing and scary. Assault rifles are very aggressive and randomly attack people all the time.

Early reports say a drive-bye committed the Mennonites started this whole mess. Apparently the Amish retaliated, thus causing the ongoing turf war to spill into "neutral" territory.

Firings should mean firearm was discharged. SHOOTINGS implied people targeted/hit.

The 2nd Amendment can be discussed later.

Because when the media wing of the democrat party reports it, the most frequently uttered words will be "more gun control".

Oh yes. It makes a really, really scary sound.

A hunting rifle makes a much more peaceful and civilized sound.

Hunting, assault, hunting , assault.... see the difference. One is actually very deadly to people.

Does an assault rifle make a different sound than, say, a hunting rifle?

Not really. The AR-15 fires the .223 Remington round as well as the 5.56mm NATO ("functionally" identically other than pressure specs). The AK-47, and SKS and variants fire the Russian 7.62x39mm round.

The 7.62x39 round sounds like a Winchester .30-30 (a popular hunting cartridge), and the 5.56mm NATO rounds sounds a whole lot like the .243 Winchester round...another popular hunting cartridge.

It's fairly easy to differentiate between pistol, rifle, and shotgun cartridges...even within close proximities due to aural tonal qualities of the blast. But it can be fairly difficult to differentiate between small bore, centerfire rifles whether they be hunting rifles or semi-autos. They all pretty much sound the same, with minor exceptions. They're certainly impossible to differentiate from one another generally.

Note to self: if you wake up and there's a drug dealer in the yard, search him BEFORE calling 911.

what gets me is the whole 'lockdown' thing...guy I worked for several years back went to pick up his daughter as usual, [leaving me to deal with customers] and it happend to be a tornado watch or warning at that time...

they would NOT allow him to retreive his girl...I was dumbfounded when he returned, waaaaaay later than expected and highly agitated to hear the tale...

tornado will be the least of ms sourpickles' worries if it were my kids...
