Not only is that an AR style rifle, but is that a (gasp!) high capacity magazine I see??? Not that I believe a 30 round mag is high capacity, but Diane Feinstein does...

Check out the target of a young white wearing a CAL hat. Is that one of those “no hesitation” targets Ive been hearing about?

I count at least 16 well-placed bullet holes — I see her finger off the trigger, and the barrel pointed in a safe direction. And she has (safety?) glasses on, as well as ear protectors. (Is that a high school student target?)

Personally, I’m not sure that there is any hypocrisy on her part now, maybe then when this picture was taken.

Aside from being a ‘former’ rabid liberal Democrat who’d do anything for power and control, I don’t think she even has the mental capacity operate in that realm any more, just like Jim Brady was.....

The despicable hypocrisy comes from their spouses. Money, money and mo’ money are POWERFUL attractants. The prospect of heading up a large supposedly non-profit organization and operating financially with impugnity and no oversight is added value. They are money grubbing ideological whores.

The Amish gag is that it is NOT PC to tell what a perpetrators race is due to the MSM’s stupidity. So the gag is to call them Amish, which is ridiculous.

Rep. Giffords had no problem shooting at a target picturing what the anti-gun types call a "child". The kid whose likeness is on the target looks like a typical high school senior.

So yes, Rep. Giffords was out practicing on a target of a school age child. In the context of Columbine, before the photo, and Adam Lanza after the photo that is pretty creepy.

Personally I don't know any people who like to shoot at realistic targets of teenagers. I wonder if Rep. Giffords would be uncomfortable if she came upon some young men shooting at pictures of school students, or realistic portrayals of adults in positions of authority. I sure would be.

It kinda looks like there’s a hole for the face, like in the old-fashioned boardwalk carnival, where you can look like a circus strongman. Would that be a real person sticking his face in there, or is that just another picture taped to the hole?

Ah, the bigger picture shows me that that’s a picture of a face. I wonder who that is, and who went to the trouble to tape that face in there. (And whose face it is.)

In all fairness, the target dude is holding a machine pistol, not a bag of groceries.

Or an airsoft toy. Hard to tell if the orange tip is there in black and white - or low light level conditions. More kids own airsoft machine pistols than real machine pistols.

Something one needs to consider before killing some kid.

Looks like your basic Vietnam War milled AK-47 except for the AKM style forearm.

Gabby Giffords is truly a tragic figure. Grievously wounded, once a politician & now only politically useful.

Well....it reminded me of the AK’s I saw in Vietnam. I flew Hueys & when we picked up long range patrol guys they brought all kinds of captured s***. Most were tired looking like the one shown, some were brand new, none were `bringbackable’ tho some did manage to mail them home a piece at a time. Heck toward the end in 1972 there were so many messed up people that customs MPs told me `we’re only looking for drugs’. I could have brought back a like new AK in my Pioneer stereo speakers but chose not to.

Then a few years later the Chicoms were exporting legal AK’s so I bought one & stayed legal.

The one question I do have about this whole “high capacity magazine” debate. As I understand it, Feinstein’s bill would ban any magazine over 10 rounds. Are there any 10 round AR type magazines made? I’m thinking the smallest you can buy in a true AR style rifle is a 20 round mag. Would that mean all AR mags would be outlawed for sale and eventually our AR’s would be useless because we would have no more magazines to put in them when our current ones run out?

Just wondering...

Wow! Missed that! Would be interesting to know where & when Rep. Giffords was handling a full-auto AK, tho it’s obvious she was not ready to fire (safety is on, too.).

"Then a few years later the Chicoms were exporting legal AK’s so I bought one & stayed legal."

Yeah, but those ones aren't fully auto like the ones you saw in Vietnam. During the Gulf war there were all kind of AK's everywhere, but if you got caught trying to smuggle one back you were up poop creek without a paddle....

Our ops officer collected a whole bunch of them up along with other military items for "display" in a unit museum. True enough they did make a museum once we got back. I just wonder how many "extra" pieces never made it to the museum and into the hands of some of our officers...

Brady headquarters: High fives, gleeful hand rubbing and back slapping before the smoke had cleared.
So, who’s AR was she holding? If it belonged to her, why does mark kelly giffords need one to give a way? To paraphrase john f’n kerry (aka Thurston Howell III), “I was for AR-15’s before I was against AR-15’s like the one I used in Nam (actually an M-16 johnny boy). You do know I served in Nam right?” This radical left wing extremist demokkkrat scumbag anti-war activist POS is now the SOS? WTF? Well, he did have experience negotiating with the NVA in “gay” Paree right?

I worked at an Army Reserve maintenance shop & one day I was handed an AKMS & told to render it inoperable by cutting a gap in the chamber (used air gouger) & then welding the bolt carrier to the front trunion. It was returned to the unit where it was added to the property book by serial number.

IIRC during OEF 1 a unit had to get a G.O. to sign off on their adding a full auto weapon to their museum & again it went on the unit property book by serial number before they rotated out of theater. I had to cut up a brand new Krinkov, enough to make grown men cry.

Some O-6 got busted in Iraq trying to smuggle out six AKMSs on a C-130, it helps not to get greedy.

The Cal target must have something to do with her being from Arizona. Still, very poor taste for a Congresswoman, as opposed to a frat boy, doing that. Wasnt she the reason politicians could no longer put bullseyes on things, or even say words like target?

If the target pic was of a black with hat backwards, gold teeth and pants pulled to his knee's I think a certain group would have a BIG problem with it. Even that scenario for a perp would seem to me to be more real life. Just sayin......

HEY!!! Why is she using a target of a young WHITE male? And wtf is up with that stupid grin of hers? Is it funny that a young white male is full of bullet holes that she made with that BLACK rifle of hers. She muss beeze Raciss and hatzes White folk!


Seriously, what if that target was of a Black Male? Even one made from a Mug Shot of a convicted Murderer. Can you imagine the sh*t storm that'd erupt if a Republican or Libertarian Pol did that? They'd be lynched by the MSM and run out of office in a day!

But a White male target, okay... 'fair game' for bullets from Libtards!
