    To be fair, the .223 round EXPLODES when it hits human flesh. And only HUMAN flesh which is why you can’t hunt deer with it in many areas.

  2. Drake Says:

    The fact that a former General Officer is saying I don’t need something is only solidifying my belief that civilian ownership is valid.

  3. Cargosquid Says:

    We already know that he says stupid stuff which is why he is a FORMER officer.
    Now he proves that he is proof that military service does NOT make you a gunnie.

  4. Sigivald Says:

    I would love to see the look on his face as someone patiently explained muzzle energy and ballistics and told him about the .30-30, let alone the .308 …

  5. MJM Says:

    So a former general officer wants to take guns away from citizens. Surprise. Not all high-ranking officers see themselves as “the government.” Many remember why they joined. He obviously favors paternalistic government power with the “We’ve got to protect….”
    Dear General McChrystal: I would like for you to protect our shores from foreign invaders. But, if they get through you, I’m here. With an AR-15.

    The caption box on the news ticker seems to be bugged in my verision of Youtube. It looks like it says “Gen.” Stanley McChrystal… it should read “Prof.” He’s a lecturer at Yale University not in the Army.

    He’s also on the board of Knowledge International, a licensed arms dealer owned by the United Arab Emirates government. He should really learn more about their products:

    So, basically, he’s saying that when you shoot someone with it, they get hurt? No, really?

    No, it doesn’t explode when it hits human flesh. As a paramedic, I’ve seen quite a few shooting victims. In the .223 shootings I’ve seen, the bullet made a sizable exit wound, as you would expect with any high velocity bullet, but made a rather neat hole in any item that was a backstop. (Which in most cases was the wall of a mobile home, go figure.)

    Interesting being that one of the complaints among marines and soldiers is that .223 has a lack of stopping power on humans… surprisingly out of touch with everyone else whose carried a M16 or M4

    Divemedic: I think rightisright was being sarcastic. Hard to tell sometimes, though.

  11. rightisright Says:

    I thought the “you can’t hunt deer with it” would have given it away…

    Well, William S Burroughs is gone, and so is Hunter S Thompson. Looks like Rolling Stone has found its new firearms editor.

  13. Shootin' Buddy Says:

    Wow, an O-9 who speaks nonsense about firearms. Shocking.

    As pointed out above, Stanley sits on the board of directors of a gun running company. Has anyone told MSNBC about this?

  14. tincan Says:

    keep in mind that McCrystal ran special ops teams who would raid homes in the night, killing, arresting, and interrogating people in their own living rooms. I’m sure he’d agree that removing assault weapons from homes sure would make that job easier!

    Homeboy knows what side his bread is buttered on. Give the news people the bites they want, and you get invited back.

    Also, this way he doesn’t endanger his retirement check: keep to the leftist line, and nothing will happen to your “Precious”.
