Response to Dog Gone at Penigma (Reply #17)

21. Your post is a mixture of stuff... I want to respond...

 

but duty calls

But just to nitpick a couple of things.

1) If he herded them into a corner, the difference between firing from the hip and having to fire from the shoulder is that he would have had more hits firing from the shoulder.

2) "Armor Piercing Ammunition" capable of penetrating police protection. You do realize that you wear different protection depending on whether you're trying to protect yourself from rifle bullets than from handgun bullets? "Capable of penetrating police protection" just defined just about every major big-game hunting caliber available. The fact that you just throw that out there means that you are not reasonable because you are not speaking from a position of knowing enough to know something so basic. You seem to have a conclusion you're trying to justify with data. You are not letting the data guide you to a conclusion. Both sides are guilty of it, and I'm not here to defend that side. I'm pro-gun sure, I have my reasons for positions I've taken, but I am not an NRA robot.

3) Silencers. This is a dumb talking point from either side. They are not used in crime. Anyone on a rampage with sensitive ears will wear earplugs. You might be happy if they had "silencers" anyway. They bleed a little energy off the bullet and reduce muzzle velocity--- theoretically making the gun less lethal.

4) Cuomo - ramrodded that legislation. There is no away around it. That is no way to lead no matter what side of the debate you're on. If you're bypassing committees to ram something through; you are extreme IMHO. I'd say that about either side.

5) Regarding your cartoon. It has always been my position that the reasonable level of armament is common hunting rounds, and whatever a patrol officer would have in their cruiser. This is actually a more restrictive position than a lot of gun control people would take if one were to really contemplate what I am saying -- so if congress wants standardize the arms that a militia member should have... so be it... but the police should be limited to the same weapons. However, from a self-defense standpoint if it's good enough for an officer it should be good enough for me. They carry a sidearm as a defensive weapon.


I have to work... I might read any response this evening.
