I just need to know if "Assault Bullets" were fired.
Thanks in advance.
It is no secret that the vast majority of liberals don't know a thing about guns.

It is no secret that the vast majority of liberals don't know a thing about guns. This is not to say that there aren't any that own them or are as knowledgeable as I am, just that the vast majority of liberals are never exposed to guns in anything other than movies and sensationalized news reports.
Because of this their opinions on guns and gun policy is usually woefully misinformed. They don't know about the laws in place, they don't know about the functionality or role of certain weapons. They just know what the media has fed them. This is a problem. Because we can't have an honest discussion on policy if one side remains completely in the dark on these issues.
It is easy enough to go to the ATF website and read their FAQ. Do the legwork yourself and figure it out. I know that isn't going to be a lot of people because, despite political affiliations, people generally don't verify information that agrees with their preconceived notions. That's not a liberal or conservative thing. That's a people thing.
But it is DEFINITELY a liberal thing to go out on national media and make utterly stupefying fools of yourselves on the topic of guns and gun control.
Here's an example:
This story shows an image that USA Today used to depict the rifle used by the gunman in Sunderland, Texas.
It's an AR15 with a god damned chainsaw bayonet.
A chainsaw bayonet folks.
What do you think this is the Evil Dead? Is Ash Williams your damned gun expert?
What's scary is that this isn't even close to the most embarrassing thing that a member of the liberal media has done in the name of promoting their anti-gun agenda.
Is it too much to ask that you don't embarrass yourselves? Trying to do you idiots a favor here.

a reply to: projectvxn Ok I am going to stop you right there. You are basing this off of your own experience. I am a liberal and half the friends I have are. And both ends of the friends spectrum know just as much as the other about guns. I also know that more of my liberal friends have done many maor tours. Maybe you should be more diverse and get your gun facts straight. Should I keep going?
