More FN 5 7 Nonsense
The Five-SeveN pistol is small enough to fit into your pocket [only if you wear really big pants, this is a full size handgun] but packs a big punch — its bullets can penetrate a bulletproof vest [no, the commercial rounds cannot - ask the ATF]. One of the weapons was recently pulled off the streets of Camden County, N.J., and New Jersey and New York lawmakers want them out of the hands of the public for good. [I think NJ and NY lawmakers want all guns out of all hands]
“This is not a Second Amendment issue,” Corzine said. “Who needs one of these? The only reason is for violence.”
Yes, it is. What’s need got to do with it? Yes, violence against paper targets.
Update: The NRA responds to the Brady Bunch:
Referring to the Five-seveN handgun in a press conference by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Mike Barnes today suggested that the NRA`s President, Wayne LaPierre, “put on a bullet proof vest, and we`ll fire the weapon at him, and see what happens. He should put
his body where his mouth is.”
NRA Response: It is pathetic to see the gun control lobby make hysterical statements to resurrect their failed political agenda. According to the BATFE, this armor-piercing ammunition is only available to the military and police. The Brady Campaign continues to deceive the American people in their effort to ban firearm ownership by all law-abiding Americans.
