The Second Amendment is greatly responsible for America's continued freedom...that a few nuts from time to time do as this nut did, does not warrant stripping the Nation of it's rights to protect themselves.

Washington, D.C. has excessively heavy gun laws as does the Washington Navy Yard....no amount of law is going to stop someone intent on killing. If gun laws were successful, the killing each week in Chicago would abate don'tcha think? Gangs, Nuts, and criminals is the real problem.

Sure, come back and have some more.

You want a few more state legislators from your party hitting the unemployment line, obviously.

“When will enough be enough?”

When people finally figure out the lefts gun free zones are dangerous places and demand the right to defend themselves. Not until then will the slaughters end.

If someone wants to kill, they'll find a way to do it. If not guns, they'll use bombs. If not bombs, they'll use gas. The only answer is free will and the Constitutional right to stop them.

As certain as death and taxes. Had personnel at the naval yard been allowed to carry arms, this never would have happened.

It’s not a matter of them not learning. Obama’s prohibited from
Another term, and DiFi could give a rambling anti gun speech while wearing bandoliers and with an AK strapped to her back and still get reelected.

They just don’t care.

Given the rush to push the AR15 angle, now proven false, the advantage right now is even more with gun rights advocates. We need to exploit it fully. Sociopaths like DiFi can handle being hated and yelled at. They usually can’t handle being mocked and ridiculed.

I recently observed a gun control debate that went like this:

"Nobody is going to take your damned guns away from you, but a BACKGROUND CHECK will mean that less guns will get into the hands of people who SHOULD NOT HAVE THEM. Right now, you're not even required to show ID in some places to get a gun thanks to the 'gun show loophole'. What's so UNREASONABLE about background checks?!"

"What do you think a 'background check' really consists of? There's some magical oracle of information where we can query whether a person is a lunatic or not? Or a criminal? You have states handing out driver's licenses to illegal aliens who present no other form of ID and get an official driver's license just by signing another document where they swear they are who they say they are. Do you think an 'identity loophole' like that would make a 'background check' more or less valid than a US Military 'Secret' security clearance like the Navy Yard shooter had?"

"Okay, then just forget the whole thing. If background checks won't work, we just need to go door to door sweeping up all the guns."

"You go out to your politicians and demand that. I'll even handcraft you a protest sign which calls for precisely that."

If I am not mistaken, 100% of the mass shooters in the United States have been either left-wing Democrats, or come from left-wing environments (family). I grant you that they were all insane, and on brain medication -- but it is also interesting that these gunners came from ostensibly gun-hating Democrat families. So maybe we can reach a compromise: left-wing democrats should not possess firearms.
I include the United States qualifier, because that Norwegian whack job was a right-winger -- albeit one who was a 'solid' atheist. As such, I guess what he did was logical... (from a crazy atheistic point of view).

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?

"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.

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.

http://www.brennekeusa.com/cms/l_tactical_home_defense.html

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.

“What is an AR 15 shotgun?”
“WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?”
If CNN (etc) said the gunman utilized an BG-23, the usual suspects would demand the immediate outlawing of the BG-23.
At least 3 Democrats would join in introducing such a bill.
Low information voters/people

Ah... the control freaks who can’t quite get their hands around us yet get excited over the sight of blood and certainly did hope for an AR-15 in the mix. It doesn’t really matter who said it. We knew that somebody would. Thieves and liars. I wouldn’t piss on them if they were on fire.
