NRA President: The AR-15, Which Can Fire 700 Rounds Per Minute, Is The ‘Musket Of Today’ [View all]

Are these people really this dumb or do they for some reason think this is just a politically smart thing to say?




KEENE: This nation was founded as a result of the fact, people, citizens who had a musket above their fireplace grabbed the gun when an emergency confronted them. For four million Americans, the AR-15 is the musket of today.



For reference, the AR-15 can fire between 700 to 950 rounds a minute. In contrast, the muskets that the American revolutionaries used typically fired three rounds per minute if they were used by skilled marksmen.
