    Oh noes!!!! I think our time is up fellow High Roaders. Our evil black rifles will be banned as someone finally has a foolproof argument against them!

    ....so "semi-automatic military rifles" have some kind of hair trigger making them more uncontrollable than a revolver?....and revolvers don't have hair triggers?.........very interesting, I learn so much reading editorial pages.

    The first revolver I ever fired was a hair-pin trigger. It actually went off before I wanted it to and the shot went into the dirt. The first semi-auto I ever fired had much heavier trigger pull.

    I love reading opinion pieces written by people who clearly have very little actual knowledge of the subject under discussion. You know, I'm not a mechanic but I have changed my oil a few times. I think I'll write up a review on the pros and cons of the Dodge Hemi versus a Ford V8. I'm sure it'll be detailed and insightful...

    But you know, they published his article on the assault weapons ban so it MUST be true!

    Simple mistake when typing or big pile o' ignorance?

    Of course no one EVER shot a long gun from the waist before the pistol grip era.

    Well, color me perplexed. I think he is confusing marital aids with martial aids.


    Regardless of what he meant, no I'm not uncomfortable at all. Of course I am not some easily frightened mouse who gets skittish at the thought of weapons.

    Some trysts could benefit from the use of a silencer.

    It's unfortunate that they don't allow people to respond, and educate this twit.

    Geez, where do I begin?

    Nope. They fire just as fast as any other semi-auto. That is, only as fast as the trigger can be pulled. And what do they mean by “wide spread” fire. Perhaps they don’t know what a shotgun pattern is. And how is firing a round from a so called “assault weapon” any easier than firing a round from a hunting rifles.

    1. A rifle without a pistol grip is just as easy to hold at the waist an fire as a gun with a pistol grip. In fact, I would rather someone shooting at me be holding the gun “at the hip” rather than actually aiming it at me.

    2. Stock (or in their words stalks) that telescope or fold make the weapon smaller than my concealed carry handgun?

    3. Silencers. Note to anti-gunners. Most silencers don’t eliminate all sound they suppress that amount of sound made. Plus, suppressors are already NFA restricted items. What logic is this fool using to think that because the ability to use a silencer will make the silencer itself any easier to get. This is the same argument with “grenade launchers.” Just because a rifle is equipped with a post that holds a grenade doesn’t make the grenade legal to run out to Walmart and buy.


    1. A criminal that hides his drugs most likely hides his illegal guns too.
    2. It is far more likely that a person whose house is being searched on a drug warrant isn’t legally allowed to posses any guns (legal or banned) in the first place. Banned features aren’t going to affect this person’s who isn’t allowed to have any type of firearm.

    A “hair trigger” when engaged still only ‘unloads’ a single round. This attempt at logic is horrific

    One of the great beauties of the internet is that it allows anyone to display his ignorance to the entire world at very little cost.

    Zen21Tao beat me to it, and was more accurate.

    However, I'll leave up what I said anyway.

    Justin, it is my understanding from the first paragraph (My decipher'er may not be accurate), that this was somewhere around mid 2004.

    "The Senate renewed the historic 1994 ban on assault rifles by a thin margin of 52 for to 47 against. In another vote of 53 to 46 the bill past through denying gun shows the ability to sell firearms without doing any form of back round checks. Both bills are a continued step in the right direction concerning gun laws in the United States."

    The Senate indeed renewed the ban last year, but the House didn't, thus neither bill made it to the President for signature. I didn't read more than the first paragraph due to the countless grammatical and spelling errors. Perhaps he's trying to continue dumbing down his audience.

    The writer is in college? Why can't he spell stock?
    What does assignation mean in relation to firearms?
    I expect better editorials from freshman high school kids!

    The writer is also ignorant of firearm laws (no wallmart in America has silencers for sale although I wish they did) and firearms in general, a "hair trigger" can be on a revolver as well as a semi auto.

    Also I am a vegetarian and I do not hunt, I do however own many guns including AK47's and AR15's both are reasonably accurate. The bullet goes where I aim
    so either he is lying or he is stupid, I suspect the latter.

    So being that I am not a hunter is supposed to mean that I have given up my right to own a gun?

    Oh and your common hunting rifle may also be shot from the hip it is probably more powerful the my AR15. I don't however expect the writer to know the difference between .223 & 30 06

    Fella's;

    The article is further evidence that the N.E.A. is not doing this country any favors. At least I'm presuming that the author of that piece is purporting to have had an education.

    Before anyone goes writing a rebuttal including insults to the original writer's spelling and grammar, you might want to check your own letter. Just sayin'....

    Liquid Tension, right again!

    :eek: :D :neener:
    looks like someone found an English major to stick up for them....I deserved it of course
    Dear sir,

    The editorial you refer to did indeed have
    several mistakes, as you so
    kindly point out. And yes, there are a few
    inaccuracies in it as
    well. However, may I gently point out that the
    students that write for
    The Keystone are just that--students. They are
    still learning the
    craft of journalism, as are the student editors.
    They try diligently,
    and while they sometimes miss the mark--as this
    editorial did--that in
    no way diminishes the effort they put into each
    article.

    We appreciate your readership, and your reply.
    However, since you were
    so generous in pointing out our errors, allow us
    the same kindness.

    In your e-mail, you mention "wallmart." We don't
    have "wallmarts" in
    Pennsylvania. However, we do frequent
    "Wal-Marts."

    Also, your e-mail was rife with sentence
    fragments, and you suffer from
    an egregious lack of punctuation, sir. Bear with
    me, won't you?

    "Also I am a vegetarian and I do not hunt, I do
    however own many guns
    including AK47's and AR15's both are reasonably
    accurate. The bullet
    goes where I aim so either he is lying or he is
    stupid, I suspect the
    latter." (THIS PASSAGE WOULD HAVE GREATLY
    BENEFITTED FROM PUNCTUATION.
    ALLOW ME TO DEMONSTRATE. "Also, I am a
    vegetarian, and I do not hunt.
    I do, however, own many guns, including AK-47s
    and AR-15s. Both are
    reasonably accurate. The bullet goes where I
    aim, so either he is
    lying or he is stupid. I suspect the latter."
    SEE HOW THAT FLOWS?)

    "So being that I am not a hunter is supposed to
    mean that I have given
    up my right to own a gun? Oh and your common
    hunting rifle may also be
    shot from the hip it is probably more powerful
    the my AR15. I don't
    however expect the writer to know the difference
    between .223 & 30 06"
    (THIS PASSAGE ALSO WOULD HAVE BENEFITTED FROM
    SOME PUNCTUATION, USED
    APPROPRIATELY. PLEASE, INDULGE ME AGAIN. "So,
    being that I am not a
    hunter, is that supposed to mean that I have
    given up my right to own a
    gun? Oh, and your common hunting rifle may also
    be shot from the hip.
    It is probably more powerful than my AR-15. I
    don't, however, expect
    the writer to know the difference between .223
    and 30.06." THERE.
    ISN'T THAT BETTER?)

    Sadly, sir, I expect better from freshmen high
    school kids.

    But thanks for reading The Keystone, sir. Take
    care.

    -Warmly,
    The Keystone

    Though the smartass that replied still did not know enough to put a dash in 30-06 instead of a decimal point.

    I'm still laughing at that!

    sometimes, even when I mess up, I really love the internet.
    What a hoot!

    olol.
    Funny guy.
    olol.
    Because, as movies have taught us, hip shots are not only more accurate, but more deadly.

    *** did that have to do with anything? Is that an argument against rifles with military cosmetics? That a newbie gun user would find a revolver safer to wield in a home invasion and thus proves that the AWB was a good thing? Illogical.
