Skip to comments.Jason Alexander’s amazing gun rant ("ban assault weapons")
Posted on 07/23/2012 9:57:19 AM PDT by Atlas Sneezed
What purpose does an AR-15 serve to a sportsman that a more standard hunting rifle does not serve? Lets see does it fire more rounds without reload? Yes. Does it fire farther and more accurately? Yes. Does it accommodate a more lethal payload? Yes. So basically, the purpose of an assault style weapon is to kill more stuff, more fully, faster and from further away. To achieve maximum lethality....
These people believe that the US government is eventually going to go street by street and enslave our citizens. Now as long as that is only happening to liberals, homosexuals and democrats no problem. But if they try it with anyone else its going to be arms-ageddon and these committed, God-fearing, brave souls will then use their military-esque arsenal to show the forces of our corrupt government whats-what. These people think they meet the definition of a militia. They dont. At least not the constitutional one. And, if it should actually come to such an unthinkable reality, these people believe they would win. Thats why they have to take our country back. From who? From anyone who doesnt think like them or see the world like them. They hold the only truth, everyone else is dangerous. Ever meet a terrorist that doesnt believe that? Just asking.
Then there are the folks who write that if everyone in Colorado had a weapon, this maniac would have been stopped. Perhaps. But I do believe that the element of surprise, tear gas and head to toe kevlar protection might have given him a distinct edge. Not only that, but a crowd of people firing away in a chaotic arena without training or planning I tend to think that scenario could produce even more victims....

Not one correct assertion.
They all need to shut up and act.
Of the twenty something murders in Chicago this month, I wonder how many we’re done with “assault” weapons? These idiots think every AR15 is an automatic machine gun.
And the stabbings in Chcago this year have exceeded all of last year already. Are they banning knifes?
Simply ignorant and just stupid.
Why can’t we all just get along?
Ugh! Where do you start? I mean Jason Alexander is completely ignorant as to firearms and the Constitution’s 2nd Ammendment. Can’t even parse the English language correctly.
So when did Jason Alexander become a firearms expert?
He obviously doesn’t understand the constitution and the bill of rights.
Correct, not one right assertion. An AR15 is a low powered weapon, does not hold more rounds than any other magazine fed rifle has half the range and stopping power of a classic 30-06.
It is of no use to argue with ideologues and oppressors. I’m done trying to reason with people like this. Come and take them.
Does it accommodate a more lethal payload? Yes.
No. In some states it's not even legal for deer hunting.
There is no sporting purpose requirement to the Second Amendment, which was first and foremost written to deter tyranny in government.
Lets see does it fire more rounds without reload? Yes. Does it fire farther and more accurately? Yes.
False, hunting rifles are more powerful and typically more accurate. It isn't even legal to hunt deer with a .223 in many states. (Including Colorado, for example.)
Does it accommodate a more lethal payload? Yes.
False again, the intermediate-power .223 was designed to maim more than to kill, while hunting bullets were designed to kill. Maiming soldiers of enemy armies take more of them out of action than killing them does, because of all the personnel needed to accomplish the rescue, evac, give medical treatment, etc.
This is just anti-gun disinformation. (As is typical.)
You didn’t know our military snipers use AR-15’s?
its funny listening to all these hollywood morons scream about gun control over the Colorado shooting without taking any responsibility themselves....the shooter did refer to himself as “the Joker” and reportedly died his hair to look like the “Joker”...
so how about Alexander- where’s the blame on Hollywood for this???
I have a magazine I got a while back that isn’t much larger than a regular 30 rounder and holds 60 rounds (Surefire Mag)...not a drum canister, just a thicker regular mag. You won’t get this in a deer rifle model.
Actually, they need to shut up and shut up.
HEY JASON: how about this, Porky.
Let's ban EVERY SINGLE GUN IN AMERICA.
So, instead, this guy blocks one emergency exit with his car, blocks the other with something else heavy, then uses gasoline at the two entrances.
Everyone's dead from fire. Instead of 13 dead and 50 something injured, now we have 120 DEAD.
What progress that would be.
Unless your next idea is to ban gasoline, you freakin MORON???
“What purpose does an AR-15 serve to a sportsman that a more standard hunting rifle does not serve? Lets see does it fire more rounds without reload? Yes. Does it fire farther and more accurately?

It does not fire more loads without reloading.
It does not fire farther and more accurately. Many rifles, including black powder rifles, shoot farther with accuracy.
It is a utilitysprot rifle good for small vermin. Although some use it for deer hunting that is a bit of a stretch.
Everything he says here is garbage.
Hey there looser, Obama promised it when he said he wanted a civil army as strong and as well equipped as the regular army. Get back on your meds buddy. Hitler did it in Germany, Mussolini in Italy, Mao in China Stalin in the USSR etc. etc etc. People are free only when the government fears them not the other way around.
“they”-the liberals..are all seething angry about these weapons.
Those guns...and the Second Amendment..are all that stands between us and their perverted egos....striving to “perfect” socialism/communism
When he lost relevance as an actor.
LOOK AT ME!!!!!! LOOK AT ME!!!!!!! HEY, WHY AREN'T YOU LOOKING AT ME ANYMORE???????
