Thanks for the info. I've never researched that.

i take it you have never seen:

Saiga 12
Saiga 20
Saiga 410
AA-12 (not legal, since its post ban manufactured and full auto- so SOT7 and manufacturers can only have them)
SRM semi auto
MKA 1919
an 870 with extended mag tube, and someone who knows how to run it.
benelli M4 and someone who knows how to run it.



my saigas have 20+1 capacity drums. its AMAZINGLY fun to shoot, and i can dump 21 rounds in about 4 seconds. mag change is bulky and cumbersome, but its AK style paddle and mag insertion (unless you run a magwell and standard 10 round mags that push in like an AR)

i have a few, and they are really fun to unload at wild pigs with 00 buck

If only Adam Landa's mom had owned a gun and taken lessons to learn how to shoot. She could have stopped this from ever happening in the first place.

Both of these weapons are functionally the same, they shoot the same round, both accept 30 round magazines, and both have equal "killing potential".
I think we should start a company making AR-15s in wood grain.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

According to some people here the solution to too many guns is more guns.

Brilliant.

According to some people here, they have never been around a gun or used one, but want to assume all guns are bad. They live their lives in fear without educating themselves. Go relieve some tension and shoot a gun for the first time at the range.

Brilliant.

An Assault Rifle is a full auto or burst fire weapon that is standard issue in the military.

They are "illegal" everywhere already, unless you have a tax stamp and pay for the weapon. You are also not allowed to manufacture any new Assault Rifles in this country, unless for military purposes.

An assault weapon is what is categorized as a semi-auto rifle, that can accept large magazines, etc.

Please learn the terminology before talking. Not you Rode, everyone in general. If it was Assault Rifle, it would be the ARB, not the AWB.

The problem is too many crazy people with guns, not too many guns. It's not like there was a back forth firefight that killed all those children.

I also think that people get hung up on the word "assault." Its a rifle yes, but I think many would not make such a big deal if it wasn't called an assault rifle.

You just completely ignored his statement highlighting the retardation of some gun owners.

I go to the range. It's fun and expensive but I'm not inspired to buy guns because of this event.

I don't think the person getting shot is worried about the word assault either

But then there wouldn't be such blind support for the ban.

If Plan B pills were called "baby murder pills" I'm sure they'd be viewed differently, too.

Is it really the proper use of word there? Courage ?

Think about that one

That is a lot of firepower in 4 seconds. If you do it right, you won't have to reload.

Has anyone seen the new AK 12, that is replacing the AK 47 ? And the AK 74, but the 74 never became popular because it is more expensive than the 47 and there are tens of millions of used 47's you can buy for pennies.

It looks awesome.

13,000 people die from aspirin overdose annually. It doesn't mean we change the name to "suicide pills."
