Which one killed these 17 kids and wounded 14?


You tell me?

Which one would you consider a "weapon of war"?

And why?



Can I guess?

I'm going to go with the bottom one! Why? Because it was specifically designed to be the semi-automatic version of the military's M16.

Neither.

They both function identically.

One looks scary so obviously, it's the bad one.

Are you crazy and should not be around schools with weapons?

All of them.


Why?

Or, just because with no real reason?

I came to that conclusion about him a while ago

The firearms above are the Remington 7400 (top) and the DSA SA-58 (bottom). They have the following qualities:

• ​They are semi-automatic in operation.

• They fire the .308 Winchester cartridge.

• They are fed from a detachable box magazine.

• They are both "black" rifles.

• Both have pistol grips.

In other words, they are functionally identical with the exact rate of fire, and just as deadly when used for legal hunting or illegal of killing people.

The only difference is the intent of the person pulling the trigger.

Thanks for playing.

Why would a sign stop a killer? If he can shoot kids in cold blood , a sign means nothing. Someone like that shouldn’t have the right to purchase guns. And ban AR15s period.

That worked out well during the Clinton Ban.

Just ignore Columbine.

A law means nothing.

It would be interesting in finding out where he got the weapon. Even with person to person the seller needs to verify that the buyer is legal, and to buy amno you need to be 21 unless once again you bought person to person.

In this case we have a troubled kid who it is now being say was diagnose with autism... sound familiar

"Why weren't authorities alerted before? How was he not hit with a felony. That would bar him from buying a gun."

The FBI was alerted 5 months prior of threats this kid made on social media. He literally said he was going to become a "professional school shooter".

Sounds like a dropped ball here.

Congress can't even get a simple task done like securing our borders. All the bills that they worked on have failed this week. No chance of any meaningful legislation to reduce future mass shootings in this country.

Wait, doesn't one hold more bullets?

Can I play a game.

A 12oz Bud Light or 12oz of Tequila, which would be safer to consume?

• ​They are both forms of alcohol

• They both go better with friends

So, we shouldnt ban the top one here then?

Why not?

It functions exactly the same (in fact these actually are more deadly since they are a higher caliber) as an AR-15. So, ban the AR-15, they buy an SA-58 or Remington 7400.

Banning stuff never works 100%, EVER.

So, if you truly wish to think of the children, then perhaps support, ACTIVELY support, true child psychology and disciplinary reforms in this country. That, IMO, would be worth the money spent, and doesn't infringe upon any Constitutionally protected rights.

But, that is hard to do....yes. Not as easy as a knee jerk "Ban it!" approach.

Hahaha, it actually did work out fairly well. out of the 34 highest casualty shooting events, only TWO took place in the decade long ban, and neither of those were in the top-10!

I know I know, some still occured, just not even close to the same rate. You actually had more mass casualty events in the 80's than the 90's. We started another up-tick, unironically enough, after the assault weapon ban was lifted in 2004.

No, the magazine size determines the number of rounds that can be fired. And, switching out magazines takes about as long as pulling the trigger again.

I thought you guys didn't need the FBI. All these ATS Rambo's seem confident in their own ability to prevent crime.

Or is that all just hot air to make yourselves feel better? Keyboard cowards desperate not to lose their toys. Wouldn't want anyone to pull their man-cards.

So if I were to buy both of those guns, what size magazine comes STANDARD with each?
