Unless used to kill our enemies the Eurasians, pop pop pop is ++ungood.

For leftists, words mean whatever they want them to mean and if they want them to mean something else tomorrow, that’s permissible too.
A few weeks back I caught Geraldo Rivera carefully crafting a false image and transforming an “assault rifle” into a full auto machine gun.
He said something along the lines of “With a handgun you can only shoot a few times and then you need to stop and reload. With these automatic killing machines you spray, slap a new clip in and spray some more.”
I don’t own assault rifles but I do own a couple of MSR’s (Modern Sporting Rifles).
I heard the same thing out that moron’s mouth. I was yelling at my TV LOL!
This is the true disgrace of the media at large.
The thing is that they are destroying their own credibility with each passing day.
They’ll never admit that to themselves because they are too busy pushing an agenda.
My smartphone is a tri-corder, and my car is a shuttle craft.
I used to use an “MSR .22” for squirrel hunting. It held 16 rounds.
Two nights in a row Diane Sawyer had video of a full auto AK47 while talking about assault weapons. Unintentional? Not likely.
Last night she was railing about the ‘high powered’ AR.
She doesn’t know the .223 is at to low end of hunting rounds? Maybe.
I own lot’s of military assault rifles, the oldest one is an 1859 3-band Enfield. The mass carnage it wraught at places like Antietem and Gettysburg was unbelievable.
Interestingly, all of those “assault rifles” were also “defensive weapons”. The Swiss never attacked anyone, so their select-fire rifles are obviously not assault weapons.
Trying to define some weapons as “offensive” and others as “defensive” is stupid, as it is a matter of intent, not design. Even mace and stun guns are used offensively when that is the intent. In fact, a woman is probably more easily zapped and tossed into a trunk, than threatened into doing so with a gun.
You mean they still had some left????? I thought they ran out long ago.
Seriously....when ANY national news talking head comes ON, the TV goes OFF. Liars, every one. I can barely still stomach the local news (mostly for the weather forecast).
In that case, the restrictions of the NFA on ownership of automatic firearms should be lifted.
What’s a clip? /s
Thank you for the link to this most important book.
Seeing as how a semi-auto fires a single round per trigger pull, “semi-auto” and “single shot” can also be used interchangeably.
