And this is how the law will come to pass in the next 2 years.
Moderates, who are neither against nor for gun control, will listen to the talking heads cry about our "problem". And they'll be led into submission
by these same talking heads. They'll decry all gun owners (except hunters) as potential mass murdering basket cases that are resisting "sensible"
I've used firearms against other living creatures. A typical "hunting" rifle will be chambered in .30-06, .308, .243, .223, or even bigger calibers
like .375 H&H, .458 Winchester magnum, or 7mm Remington Magnum. The amount of damage those rounds will cause to a human body more than surpass the
damage done by 5.56 or .22lr or 9 x 39, yet those caliber weapons are made illegal through aesthetic features. I won't say how I know, but I know for
a fact that nothing but level III soft armor with a level IV plate or a level IV hard cover vest will stop most hunting rounds. And with level III,
none of the energy is stopped by the plate/armor, it only stops penetration and only with 1-3 rounds. Sustained .30-06 fire will break most of these
plates within three shots, rendering them useless. And of course, armor doesn't do anything to protect your face, so if I were to use a "hunting"
rifle from 300 yards away, I could pop three dudes in the dome with 1 MOA accuracy. MOA is minute of arc or where the round will drop at x distance. 1
moa means that the POI or point of impact will be an inch lower than where you're aiming. I've heard of some hunting rifles achieving .75 MOA or even
as low as .50 MOA, which means that at 300 yards, I'll only have to aim about 1.5 inches higher than where I want the bullet to hit. From
cover/concealment and with low light conditions, they'd never see where the shots came from. The people making these laws don't understand or don't
want to understand anything at all about firearms.
If you don't believe me about the drownings and car accidents, here's some proof from the CDC
"From 2005-2009, there were an average of 3,533 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths
per day. About ONE IN FIVE people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger. For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive
emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries."
"In 2012, more than 1,100 children ages 14 years and younger died as a result of motor vehicle crashes."
According to data collected by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an average of 62 children aged 14 and under die each year in
the United States as the result of unintentional shootings.
WAKE THE EFF UP ALREADY
