Posted on 09/17/2013 8:00:14 AM PDT by yoe
ust hours after the deadly shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, gun control advocates tried to reignite the national debate over gun laws that had only just subsided.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat and a longtime gun control advocate, denounced the litany of massacres over the past few years and asked rhetorically, When will enough be enough?
[snip] The National Rifle Association had no comment on Monday, and pro-gun groups generally take the stance that days of particularly shocking crimes are not the time to discuss policy. Popular conservative blogger and former CNN commentator Erick Erickson admonished the rush to politicize the shooting, saying seriously people, grow up.

I shut several Liberals up after Newtown by asking them if they were volunteering to go out into Bullitt County KY to go door to door confiscating firearms.
What’s an “automatic AR-15 shotgun?” A figment of Piers Anthony and/or CNN know knowledge of guns headline writers imagination.
They watch videos, they have mental health issues, they eat carrots, etc. Theo only thing in common with these mass killings is _ THEY TAKE PLACE IN A “GUN FREE ZONE”
Well at least the nutjob didn’t use poison gas. If he had, zero and fineswine would be shredding the entire constitution, and assad would be bombing us.
I want one. I NEED one. I can actually buy AMMUNITION for one at Wally World! That’s a plus, you know.
I wonder how it compares to shooting a good semiauto regular ol’ shotgun.
Doesn’t DC already have done of the strictest gun laws in the country?
I assume that with a 16” barrel, it must be rifled.
Opps, looks like an 18+” barrel.
Bet you’re right about the rifling. I don’t have any experience with a rifled shotgun barrel.
At least slugs for rifled 12ga are readily available — I know because I continually trip on ‘em on the shelf while looking for smoothbore slugs. They’re pricy though.
Yes, and the shooting happened in a gun-restricted federal facility. Didn't the guy know that double-dog-down gun-free zones are the safest place in the universe?
How much are we going to take people? They waive anti-terrorist laws so they can give guns to TERRORISTS and then disarm AMERICANS..... Are we just going to lie down and listen to the gulag door slam??????
"Good news!!! We have figured out how to load .50BMG bullets into 12 gauge hulls!!! By using a variation of our patented MassForward technology we are able to make the .50BMG round nearly three and a half inches long when the slug exits the barrel. In plain English a portion of the wad stays with the bullet in flight, like fletching on an arrow. Not everyone can own a .50BMG but now everyone who owns a 12 gauge can throw .50BMG rounds down range. This round is loaded with the M17 Tracer and will burn for 3-4 seconds. We have printed 10″ groups at 125 yards out of a 19″ slug barrel, and had the projectile burn out to 400 Yards"
I don't think they go too fast though.
Meanwhile he’s buying extremists guns to kill government officials:

No surprise. I never did anything remotely that close in terms of stupid when I ran a chyron.
That thing kinda looks like an April Fool’s joke! Not that I’m knocking the concept.
“In plain English a portion of the wad stays with the bullet in flight”
That’s Brenneke’s claim to fame with their slug ammo.
I’m sure others make similar stuff too. I have some of the Brenneke but I haven’t shot it yet.
I’d like to experiment with packing a shotshell with nickels sometime. It’d still be cheaper than some of this fancy 12ga ammo.
Umm... Dear Difi.... He had a shotgun, and two STOLEN handguns... that he got THERE on base.
Evidently, the poor baby was upset at evil “racists”...
The Brenneke slugs will work fine for either smooth or rifled bore shotguns.
I find this hard to believe, who told him that he was a victim of racists?
