    My favorite line…”critics claim that certain features of these rifles make them especially dangerous in the wrong hands. A pistol grip that allows firing from the hip...”

    I never knew that un-aimed firing from the hip was more dangerous than aimed fire from the shoulder.

    Maybe it would have been better to post this in "Second Amendment News & Discussions" instead of the rifles and shotguns section.

    I watched this , and IMHO it wasnt as negative as normal tripe . What does torque me off is that they used some of Olig Volk's images without any permission, including if i am not mistaken one of our own Betty . Responsible fun ownership put in front of the public is allways a good thing tho ... and the gal they interviewed did great .

    Do a search for women shooting on you tube and you will find out that this female also did a newscast on competition shooting with her 1911. I can't pull it up at work, but if no one posts the link I will do it when I get home.

    If the worms in the media only knew...

    I know dozens of people that own "Black Rifles".

    Is that one of the new buzz words now ? "Black Rifles".

    I live it when the media gives exposure to the evils of the Black Rifles.

    Everytime they air a clip like that, someone out there is going to go out and buy a dangerous Black Rifle.

    Did anyone notice that hers had some PINK on it ?

    When media talks about crime and gun control they talk about
    semi auto matic and assault rifles in the same breath.Then they go along and make mistakes about features about the black rifle that's suppose to be so bad.I often say more focus is put on the tool that was used in the act of the crime than the person who actually committed it.

    I really liked the response of the woman that they interviewed. In my opinion it's good to have someone like her on TV shooting these "dangerous black rifles". Just to show that normal everyday American's do good things with them. And amazingly no one died while she was shooting it!

    And yes, lady, there is a HUGE difference between a semi-auto AR and a combat M-16. These people need to learn a little more about what they're talking about. But, sadly whatever they say most Americans will beleive. Because, why would the media ever lie to them????

    +1. I believe most of us here would agree that any firearm in the wrong hands is especially dangerous.

    overall not a bad representation from the owner.

    i also found it funny about the pistol grip. they actually could have put a better spin on it if they understood what they were for. the separation of the butt stock from the the grip causes recoil to go directly backwards instead of partially vertical. this allows faster target acquisition between shots, increasing rate of fire.

    Right...the mass shooters that have used these have not been in combat situations, especially the "DC snipers". Combat is lead flying both ways.

    Amazingly, the nice progun lady had more air time than VPC lady did.

    not to derail, but that was the first time i'd seen the supposed DC sniper's "sniper" rifle. was that really it? it had an eotech sight on it! that's a close quarters sight with no magnification, not something you'd use for long range sniping.
