The brutal truth: that the desire to eviscerate the Constitution is considered acceptable, even to the point of tossing dead kids into the faces of those demanding (a) that crime control be the focus, and (b) that it be within the limits of authority authorized by the Constitution.From the article said:The brutal truth is that the 20 little kids who perished in Newtown in a terrifying massacre involving 154 rounds fired in 5 minutes was NOT enough to significantly move the dial on gun control. These kids are now (more) collateral damage in the decades-long political gun-control ballet involving lobbying money and the way American politics truly functions.
All this banter about "high capacity" and "rapid fire"...
From the article: "...a terrifying massacre involving 154 rounds fired in 5 minutes..."
Let's do the math on this... 300 seconds, 154 rounds... that's an average of one shot fired roughly every 2 seconds. (1.94805 shots per second for perfectionists)
That's just about how fast I can accurately fire a bolt-action rifle.
That's about half as fast as I can accurately fire a pump-action shotgun.
With a pouch full of moon-clipped ammo and a 6-shot revolver I could easily maintain or exceed that rate of fire.
I'm sorry... I just don't see where using an AR with 30 rounds mags was in any way a measurable advantage to the criminals that are being held up as examples to us.
