Another internet know-nothing spouting off about guns

This is great.

Im sure we've all heard about the issues down in Mexico, right?

There are some who say that the weapons used by the cartels are coming from US gun shows.

I watched a video on youtube about it, and this fool was making all kinds of wild statements. Look for comments by "Madrid23"

the link is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXB1lmQmIaA&feature=email

My favorite is this one:

"wow, wow. U r getting carried away. We are talking automatic assault weapons. Like AKs and M4s. The next thing u r gonna start putting tanks and helicopters into this conversation. Legally, the difference between an automatic and a semi automatic is that a semi auto only has 10 to 12 rounds in its magazines and an auto has 30 or more. Not how many rounds u can shoot every time u press the trigger."

What can I say?

I suspect tracking down all the stupid comments on youtube would take a lifetime and wouldn't change a thing.

What can you say; this person is most definitely an expert on all levels of firearms expertise.

I mean, isn't it obvious.

And they're probably a well placed advisor/consultant for the Brady Campaign as well.

Speaking of the brady campaign...

While semiautomatic hunting rifles are designed to be fired from the shoulder and depend upon the accuracy of a precisely aimed projectile, the military features of semiautomatic assault weapons are designed to enhance their capacity to shoot multiple targets very rapidly.

Direct quote from their website :rolleyes:

Yeah, I used to reply to them, but feeding trolls is like feeding 'yotes. If you dont do it, they dont come around that often, in my area anyway...

"original 2nd amendment was made to allow "we the people" to overthrow our Gov in case of tyranny. Back then the Gov had muskets, today the Gov has got F-15, F-16, F-22s and aircraft carriers. "

So, according to your weird logic, the 1st amendment only applies to pens, small printers and paper ? Not to the radio, television, and internet ?

ps: back then the gov had : Battleships, cavalry, and canons.

You're pointless.

This only goes to demonstrate that some lawmakers have roughly the same understanding of firearms as any random 12 year old who posts comments on YouTube.

The only problem that concerns me in Mexico along the Border, is the possibility of having to deploy and fight a war on our soil as we have had to do before in our Nation's History.

Im sure everyone has something to say about it, factoid, opinion, laws etc etc etc. Our Descendants are going to enjoy being able to read, see and listen to some of this stuff long after we are passed on.

I have tried hard to stay away from these Mexico related threads. Ive been through that part of the USA quite a bit running Produce east and steel, machinery and goods west for many years.

I leave it here.

it's rampant. a local news station did a story about the surge in gun sales and some guy posted a comment that said during the revolution in Cuba, rebels could convert a Winchester '92 into a sub machinegun with just a few simple hand tools and 15 minutes. :rolleyes: he stuck with it after i called him on it saying the CIA taught the rebels how to do it. oh brother!
