PS: And next, all guns. Browning’s first machine gun was made from a lever-action Winchester, that operated like his later “potato-digger” machine gun. I’ve seen semi-autos fabricated from bolt-action rifles.
NRA probably sees a win-win here"Bump-fire" can be hung on Obama.
My Model 50 Winchester (Fudd) 12 gauge is recoil operated, not gas like a Remington 1100. The action of the gun’s kickback ejects the husk and chambers a fresh shell.
Does that make it an evil weapon of death?
We saw this same nonsense with the “plastic handgun that X-rays can’t see!” and the bogus alarm over the 5.56 M855 (or XM, `green tip’) AR rounds: “vest penetrating, cop killers!” And the dreaded ... Black Talon pistol cartridges.
The Glock can be seen on X-rays. Most hunting cartridges, esp. 30 calibers penetrate police vests (be patient, if the argument works here, they will try it again) and Winchester just changed the Black Talon’s name to `Ranger’ ... and then the left lost interest, having seen a squirrel and went away and barked at the moon.
Our grandparents liked Springfield bolt actions, while Dad would use semis and we like modern sporting rifles. Some of us like to waste ammo.
Ignore the outraged goo goos (what are they outraged about anyway? It was people like us that got shot) and they go away. Surrender and we lose. What are the NRA and GOP-e thinking? Who knows.
