Truth about semi-auto firearms
I don't know how much simpler this could be for people today. He is pointing out the idiocy of how some of these gun laws are being created. I love it

Pretty well presented - level headed guy - but I'll bet the media will continue adding their usual spin and hype - because they are too darned lazy to bother and research the crap they report beforehand!

Nice video. I'm not big on .223, but that was a nice little mod on the Mini-14.
Too bad the people who need to watch this, probably, never will.

"[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
They are left in full possession of them."
Zacharia Johnson (speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention,25 June 1778)"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."

All firearms are "dangerous" in the basic sense of the word, but the simple message this guy's presenting is, of course, that full-autos are in an entirely different league. Just as important was the message that such weapons are already restricted items and hard to acquire except through crime, and further laws or fears won't change that.
I think this guy's basic message is spot-on. Lost on the fearful, like as not.
I've got a family member whose fears border on the irrational, based mostly upon the media blitz, and I can't imagine the ideas she holds being swayed by this guy's good, truthful, level-headed distinctions. Facts are facts, but at the end of the day it doesn't matter to someone who is fearful of evil, black, automatic, "assault" weapons. (Thanks a lot, Brady Bunch & cohorts, the true source of the evil for the vast majority of firearms that exist.)
Interestingly, the LAPD's presentation on never having seen even a single converted firearm (from semi-auto to fully-auto) belies the fact that fully-auto guns do, indeed, get to the streets ... just not via conversions. Relatively rare, sure, but you need only take a drive around most major metro areas for awhile before you hear the rat-a-tat-tat of fully-auto fire in the distance (or, fairly close by, as I've had happen in south-central Los Angeles on a couple of occasions). It's not so difficult to smuggle in an item under the radar, from places around the world where such items are a dime a dozen.

. . . or whose agenda is driven not by fear, but by a willfull intention to lie, misrepresent, or cover up facts in order to promote gun control as a goal in itself.

Yes. The power that "assault" implies ... in all its forms, including the ability to forcibly repel. Agreed.

He was wrong about the fully auto weapons being illegal to own. Or at least didn't mention Class III licenses. Probably because he's in California. Anyways, other than that, a great demonstrational video.

I think the guy in the video hit the nail on the head, when he said that most of the people use emotions and not logic on guns and gun laws (anti's). The media and such do use it too much. And I think that's scarier than any "assault" rifle.

Even if the people who need to see this see it, it won't matter. The antis are anti all guns. Was it Nancy Pelosi who said if she had her way, they would all be outlawed and confiscated?
