    Really running out of materials, wannabe-journalists. :rolleyes: I've never seen such lazy writing. It's like he took the first 10 hits on a Google search and used them as his citations.

    That writer has so many inaccuracies its laughable. Sadly, him claiming to be pro 2nd amendment will some how make him a shining example to anti's that restrictions are okay.

    If that is the fire rate the manual states its a long ways off the fire rate of a real assault rifle.

    Why are journalism outlets allowing space for blogs? I thought op-eds were bad already (and assumed it was an op-ed)
