The dictionary definition of hypocritical ulterior motive is a US government that's caught selling assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels and then coming onto TV crying like a bitch wanting to ban assault weapons for US citizens.
But hey, you just keep thinking about Sandy Hook OK.

2 U.S. federal agents
3 Mexican police
1 terrorist torture/kidnaping/murder in Mexico
Attempted murders or injuries: 3
1 in Mexico; 2 in U.S.
Kidnapings: 4 (all in Mexico)
Assaults/Shootouts: 4 incidents
2 in Mexico against military; 2 in U.S. against Phoenix law enforcement

Perhaps before we enact more gun legislation, we can simply enforce the laws we already have.
Especially within government.
Jesus. They are gun runners, loan sharks, and drug pushers. Its a big, old ******* racket. Uncle Sam is the Don of La Cosa Nostra on a national level.

With a presidential pardon just waiting in the wings for Hillary or anyone else that gets convicted of wrong doing in the last 8 years I doubt anything will come of the most illegal and down right dirty happenings; just another foot note in the court records. To big to fail and to connected to jail.

And yet there are people right here on ATS that still try to give Obama and Hillary cover in various silly ways.
We have a bad sickness in our society.
The fact that American citizens can't take legal action on this El Chapo weapon, or the Americans killed with them, is a travesty. Ditto IRS and Benghazi and Hillary's servers ? How can the us citizen have no standing WRT slam-dunk crimes by the politicians ?
Regarding the weapon vs. helicopter, a BB gun could take down a helicopter if you hit the pilot in the eye, lol.
I think the issue is which caliber could just blow off a rotor, blade, engine, or other integral chunk. The .50 could, not sure about the .223 / 5.56 The AK's .308 / 7.62 would have an outside chance. .22 no
