Pants shitting hysterics

On the one hand, I’m amused at the use in this hysteria-ridden piece of the term ‘Newtown’-style assault rifle

Wow. I’ve got a couple of ‘Newtown’-style rifles and handguns. I also have a ‘Newtown’-style SUV and some ‘Newtown’-style ammo.

Pretty ridiculous.

    It seems that it’s illegal to possess certain kinds of magazines without a TV show.

    Ah, but, and you sadly probably do, do you have a Newtown’-style gun free school?

  3. dunce Says:

    Everybody has Newtown 911 response times, 20 minutes is the average nationwide. Just for the fun of it, Google the Newtown street map and locate the school and the police station to determine the distance and approximate travel time. They must have refused to respond until a full team was suited up and could go in together. If the distance was a mile you could easily walk it in 20 minutes.

    Gangnam style…only Newtown Style….

    @ Dunce : That’s actually a common misconception. Police don’t actually hang out at the police station, they’re usually out patrolling the town. It will vary depending on the locality, but usually the only people at the station are a dispatcher and someone watching the holding cells, neither of whom can leave. There might occasionally be a supervisor doing paperwork. Otherwise, the only time there are a lot of cops there is when the oncoming shift comes in for their briefing.

    Was 20 minutes the response time in Newtown?

    Thankfully, my AR isn’t a Newtown-style assault weapon. I hear he used a black Bushmaster. Mine is tan.

  8. JJR Says:

    My AR is the full Rifle-size, not the carbine version. And then there’s my WASR-10 which is totally not “Stockton Style” because that was a Norinco and the only Norinco I have is an SKS, so there ;-)

    The more I think about it, the more I think they really do mean “style” literally.

    Same shape? Same thing.

    Looks are what scare them, nothing more – thus even Feinstein’s proposed new-AWB bases itself on cosmetics* as much as anything else.

    An AR-15, despite being a semi-auto, really is “military-style”, because the looks are so much like a real M16 or M4; functional differences don’t matter for this purpose.

    Just “style”.

    (* Which is why an AR-15 in .22 LR is an “assault rifle”, but a Winchester 1907 is not, even with its wicked “removable magazine”, likewise the not-a-1918 BAR.

    Sure, that Browning in a full-power rifle caliber is vastly more powerful than an AR-15, but its style proclaims it as Safe and Not Scary!)

    So when another shooting happens in a “gun free zone”, can I refer to it as a “Newtown-style zone”?

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
