20. did he in fact spray?


I don't see any legitimate use for armor piercing ammunition, or any ammunition that could be used against law enforcement that would penetrate standard LEO protection.
perhaps basing your information knowledgeable sources, like gun blogs, instead of propaganda sites or ignorant pundits.

Without large capacity magazine, would anyone care if someone bump fired an AR-15 from their hip? Probably not. But so long as there are so many, and so many instances of assault style weapons being used in crimes and against law enforcement, there is a clear need to take that kind of action. Other countries don't allow assault style weapons, and it works very well. There is no good argument for us not to similarly be responsible, while still permitting many other kinds of firearms and related equipment.
the guy firing from the hip was using a machine gun, not bump firing. What countries don't allow "assault style weapons"? Canada and the US are not unique. Some countries limit them to target competitors who use them, Sweden for example. This one is made specifically for the Canadian market. It only requires an "unrestricted" PAL, which means the RCMP views it the same as a bolt or lever action.

I'd add silencers to the list btw. I think the NRA's claim they protect kids hearing is stupid - so do other kinds of protection. Silencers are unique to certain categories of crime, and work to prevent detection of shootings like many of those used in urban areas to monitor gun fire where not having that information would impeded effective law enforcement.
The French and Finnish governments disagree with you on this. Not only are silencers unregulated in those, among a few others, their use is actually mandatory in some hunting areas in Finland and Norway. They are also required on some French target ranges. All gangbangers would have to do is use duct tape and 2liter soda bottle. Always wear ear protection for your hearing.
