So Bob O’Rourke has been trying to resuscitate his campaign with a pledge to send the cops out to confiscate tens of millions of rifles from the public.
You are quite right. They have been supplanted by other makers, especially the modular ones. Buy a lower and mod the rest of the rifle.^I wonder what their marketshare has been in recent years. As with many of their products, I suspect the cachet of the historic Colt name has been the main selling point.
What's this bit all about: "This is a black hole," he said in his heavy German Jewish accent, sounding every bit like Albert Einstein. "Once you cross the event horizon, you cannot get out. The gravity is so strong not even light can escape. You are sucked into the black hole and you come out somewhere else in space entirely. And you can never come back."Where do privileged white liberals in gated communities find common ground with the racist right: in disarming people of colour.
It's a bit odd, but rather than anti-Semitism, I suspect that it's more that the author was simply trying to include as much "colour" or description as possible.What's this bit all about: "This is a black hole," he said in his heavy German Jewish accent, sounding every bit like Albert Einstein. "
I always thought that dry firing was regarded as bad?^Hmmm...The author's account of the loud "CRACK as the firing pin found an empty chamber" makes me wonder about the veracity of his story.
Because it's fake and work of woke journalese.It's a bit odd, but rather than anti-Semitism, I suspect that it's more that the author was simply trying to include as much "colour" or description as possible.
Depends a lot on the firearm. Generally best avoided--a great many negligent discharges occur when a supposedly "empty" firearm is being "dry snapped" and goes "BANG" instead of "click." As to abuse of the firearm, it should always be avoided with rimfire calibers since the firing pin will hit the steel edge of the chamber. Best not done with other firearms, e.g., revolvers, but the use of "snap caps" can obviate the abuse. Many automatic pistols like those of the 1911 design can be dry fired with impunity.I always thought that dry firing was regarded as bad?
Yeah, but the click doesn't "bounce off the walls." There is a point where "poetic license" or "artistic exaggeration" merges into outright mendacity.In any case, I suspect that it's probably a bit of poetic license added to the description to make it sound more vivid - a "CRACK" is more exciting than "a click as the firing pin found an empty chamber".
Sorry, I'm not sure why you veered off into African-American crime statistics there, and I'm sorry if you misunderstood me.Because it's fake and work of woke journalese.
It's the south mate. Everyone has a gun. My staff in Georgia used to rush their sandwiches at their desk to go shoot at the range at lunch.Interesting how many pack a gun for church.
I could not work out what denomination it was so I guessed it might be a black church. Turns out congregation were mainly white. Rather an unattractive building for a church though.
While it is legal for licensees to carry in church, it gets more complicated because most churches in Texas have a school on the property - making carry a big No/no. The exception is church sanctioned security team members. I train a lot of church and synagogue congregations on this stuff.The church had a ‘security team’ too!
And nowadays you are allowed to carry firearms in places of worship in the area. It was previously banned until a gunman killed 26 in a church in recent times.
Correct, a rifle with a bumpstock (previously legal) is now considered a machine gun - something highly regulated under the National Firearms Act of 1934. Though a few years ago they were on the shelves of Walmart for anyone to buy.So a bumpstock turns a semi-automatic weapon into an automatic one? But I thought full-automatic weapons were legal in some states or are these meant for states where they aren't legal?
The gun in the video (FN P90) comes in both automatic, and semi-automatic versions and was created in 1990 or thereabouts (hence the name, P90). It's used by police and government in various countries but, as per Dropbear 's post, presumably can't be imported for civilian sale in the US because it was manufactured after 1986.Still, there are plenty of videos on youtube with people showing off fully-automatic weapons. Wouldn't those be illegal or don't they qualify as machine guns? I remember that some were called sub-machine guns and they seem to use smaller calibers.
