I can hit quarters with a reme 700 at 1000m (not that difficult really).
I can hit them with my M14 at 800M
I've placed 5 out of 6 shots into a dime size spread at 250M with my M4 with peep sights.
I've been a designated marksman for two tours in Iraq and taught CQB (Close Quarters Battle) Drill to thousands of troops.
I'm a decent shot.
Bernie wants to get rid of the AR and AK platforms as these are "assault weapons" even though they only have cosmetic differences to any other
semi-automatic rifle available. It's a stepping stone approach.
Bernie means pistols when he says "any weapon only made for killing". As rifles are sporting weapons no matter the platform and pistols are simply
defense weapons (or offensive depending on mindset).
Be careful what rights you surrender today as they may lead to others being simply taken away from you tomorrow.
