What a coincidence.

Nope, contrary to gun lobby bullshit,  an "ordinary hunting rifle" does not have the capability of firing 30 rounds of high velocity rounds that were specifically designed for the military in under 30 seconds.

Exactly. And as I pointed out earlier, no self respecting hunter would ever use such a weapon to "hunt."   Comparing an assault weapon to an "ordinary hunting rifle" is a losing argument, because it simply has no basis in reality.

Your opinion of hunters notwithstanding, please, browse this gallery of hunting rifles and then explain how they function differently from your very scary assault rifles.

Sorry Rambo, these are not "ordinary hunting rifles."
I love some of the comments at the end of the article where the readers actually admit that fact.
The gun nuts can call them anything they want, except for the longer barreled rifles at the end, they're still semi auto assault  rifles.

Yep. The comments were quite amusing.  I especially liked this one...

I know this isn't going to be popular, but buckmeister2 said it better than I've ever heard. We need to accept these guns into our hunting culture because they are under constant attack by anti-gunners.

Acceptance doesn't make them good hunting guns. I know that we need lots of pictures of people hunting with these guns, and promote them for that purpose for their own good and for the good of all of us who love guns, just not necessarily THESE guns for hunting. I get it, I will buy one, tell people I hunt with it, whatever it takes to support the cause, I'm on board. But between us, why? Why on Earth would you hunt with one of these?

The gun lobby would be better off arguing honestly about their position instead of pretending that an assault weapon is actually a hunting rifle.  The whole argument is ludicrous on its face.

Actually, they quite accurately reflect the views of hunters, but they certainly don't "speak for you."  In fact, you've shown quite clearly that you don't know anything about hunting at all.

So what are you saying?
That someone cannot understand how a rifle functions unless he is sitting in a deer blind?

I'm certain that it varies from state to state, but the number of rounds a hunter may keep loaded in any given weapon is already limited. I fail to see a problem with a hunter using your so-called "assault weapon" so long as he stays within that legal capacity.
What, exactly, are you bitching about?

Watch The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah Accidentally Destroy The Case For Gun Control

"Maybe he's onto something, because if you think about it, we've never tried that. We've never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs. Yeah, maybe that's all the airports need is a sign that says 'No Terrorists.'"

SEPTEMBER 22, 2016 By Sean Davis

Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, accidentally destroyed the case for gun control during his show on Wednesday night.
Noah’s accidental broadside against gun-free zones came during a portion of his opening monologue in which he made fun of a Minnesota man fed up with Islamic terrorism. The target of Noah’s ire was an ice cream shop owner in a small town southeast of St. Cloud, Minnesota — the site of a mass stabbing at a mall last weekend — who put up a sign outside of his restaurant that read, “Muslims Get Out.”
Noah mocked the store owner for a little bit, but then he moved on to the meat of his opening bit by mocking the man’s rationale for his “Muslims Get Out” sign:
You know what’s also strange is this man genuinely thought people who go around blowing people up would be stopped by a sign? You realize you’re talking to terrorists, not vampires. They don’t need to be invited in, alright? Or maybe he’s onto something, because if you think about it, we’ve never tried that. We’ve never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs. Yeah, maybe that’s all the airports need is a sign that says “No Terrorists,” yes? Yeah, and then guys are going to be walking going, “Oh, I was going to blow up the airport, but the rules are rules and they said I can’t come in. They said I can’t. They said I can’t come in.”
Does that argument sound familiar?
Noah probably doesn’t know it, but he just accidentally made an airtight case against gun-free zones in particular and gun control in general. He is 100 percent correct: people hell-bent on murdering as many people as possible don’t really care about silly signs or laws that tell them not to murder people. A sign that says “No Guns” will no more keep a violent jihadi from gunning down a bunch of innocent people than will a sign that says “Muslims Get Out.” And how do we know that gun-free zones, nearly always marked with signs designating them as such, don’t deter murderous psychopaths? Because mass shootings, rather than happening at gun ranges or in gun stores, keep happening in gun-free zones.
Contrary to Trevor Noah’s snarky assertion that “we’ve never tried to repel terrorists with signs,” our country has fecklessly tried for years to “repel terrorists with signs.”
The Sandy Hook massacre? Gun-free zone. Columbine? Gun-free zone. The Aurora movie theater shooting? Gun-free zone. The shooting last year at an Oregon community college? Gun-free zone. The shooting at a movie theater in Lafayette? Gun-free zone. The attack on a military recruiting center in Chattanooga? Gun-free zone. The Ft. Hood shooting? You guessed it: gun-free zone. The San Bernardino attack? Gun-free zone. And the massacre perpetrated by an ISIS enthusiast at an Orlando night club? Gun-free zone.
While Noah clearly doesn’t grasp the logical implications of his argument, his particular insight — that evil people who want to do evil things will find ways to carry out their schemes regardless of what signs you post or laws you pass — forms the foundation of the entire argument against gun control.
Bad people who want to murder you don’t care about your stupid signs and stupid laws.
New York City, for example, is a pressure cooker bomb-free zone. That mall in Minnesota was most definitely a weaponized knife-free zone. And yet… Terrorists don’t care that terrorism is illegal. They care about killing you. And they’ll kill you with whatever they can, whether it’s a gun, a knife, a pressure cooker, or a box cutter.
“Yeah, but this just proves we need to have stricter gun laws to prevent terrorists from getting guns in the first place,” Trevor Noah might respond. “Gun control is about more than just signs telling people not to do stuff.”
Except it’s not. The entire premise of gun control is that words on a piece of paper somewhere will prevent a terrorist from killing people. What is a law if not a sign that says what you’re allowed and not allowed to do? Yet time and time and time and time again, strict gun control regimes have completely failed to prevent mass murderers from committing mass murder. Chicago and Washington, D.C., have some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, yet those laws have done little to stem the tide of gun crime in those cities.
As Trevor Noah demonstrated via his mockery of the Minnesota man with the “Muslims Get Out” sign at his restaurant, the logic of gun control that says signs forbidding bad stuff stops bad stuff from happening is nonsensical. “Words stop bad things from happening” is just dumb. A sign that says “Muslims Get Out” will do absolutely nothing to prevent radical Islamists from wreaking havoc. Trevor Noah understands this. If only he would learn to apply his logic to the argument from gun controllers that all we need to end violence are a few more signs telling terrorists not to use guns.

Nope.  Not even close.  It's a boring straw man.  "Gun Free Zones" are not magical wards against guns and dangerous people, nor are they meant to be.  It enables the owners/administrators of the site to call the cops when a terrorist/murderer shows up with one prior to their opening fire.  It legally enables them to act without waiting for the usual sacrificial slaughter of children we've become all too used to.  

Also, Davis is just plain wrong, but that's normal.

No, it’s not a “boring straw man”. It is a side by side comparison of two mandates (the gun-free zone sign and any number of gun laws) that say essentially the same thing.

Neither is any gun law you choose to enact.

Yes, because terrorists regularly show up not with their weapons concealed, but rather openly wearing guns on their heads, just like Carmen Miranda, but without all the fruit, allowing the potential victims to take their sweet time calling the police, who may show up ten minutes later, just in time to draw chalk lines around the bodies.

I have no idea what you're talking about. I am unaware of any gun control legislation that says "essentially the same thing" as a sign.

Which is why I never claimed they were.

Law enforcement disagrees with your grade school analysis.  I'll trust them over... whatever point it was you were trying to make.

It’s not real complicated. Gun control legislation that bans firearms is essentially saying the same thing as the signs: No Guns Allowed.

The point I was trying to make should be reasonably clear: murderers are not necessarily going to show up at their hunting grounds with weapons on full display, giving the administrator of some ridiculous “Gun-Free Zone” the opportunity to call the police in time to stop them. Someone wishing to maximize the carnage would conceal his weapon and motives right up until the time he plans to start shooting.
(And I’m not quite sure how your tantrum concerning open carry pertains to this discussion, but I hope you feel better because of it.)

Motorized Handheld 5.56mm Gatling Gun: The XM556 Microgun

Quote :
Empty Shell, LLC: their website home page reads “Unique Firearms Design,” and they’re not lying.

The one we’re talking about here is called the XM556 Microgun, and it’s a motorized gatling-style gun that fires 5.56 NATO ammo like it’s going out of style. Oh, and it’s designed to be handheld, which makes it the first of its kind.


Is this available in Wal-Mart yet?  Because I can think of no reason why it shouldn't be.
