NBC on Black Rifles – 2

In an update to this video, some notes:

I thought they showed some of Oleg’s work and I was right. I don’t know that Oleg targets women but they’re in a lot of his pics.

Also, while I said earlier the article wasn’t full of pant-shitting hysteria, they did pull some real boners. But mostly those boners were the result of taking dictation from the Violence Policy Center. A pistol grip does not facilitate firing from the hip. A standard stock is much more suited to that. But if you’re firing from the hip, you’re also not aiming.

The magazine shown is not a high-capacity mag. It is a regular capacity mag. Here’s a high capacity mag.

And let’s get this out of they way: they’re not known in the trade as black rifles. They’re known as AR-15s. On some gun boards, they started referring to AR-15s as Evil Black Rifles to poke fun of the assault weapons ban, which seemed to target rifles that were black.

I was surprised they got a woman and someone who is a mother/professional as the gun person and not some dude in fatigues.

These weapons are not military style. Military style weapons are machine guns.

The popularity of AR-15s increased during the ban on weapons that looked like assault weapons. The ban only limited the aesthetic features rifles could have and people were still buying them. When the ban sunset, people (of course) wanted no-ban versions.

Kristen Rand lies through her teeth when she says AR-15s are designed for the battlefield. M-16s are but their semi-auto cousin is not. Also, her assertion that these are cop-killers (no doubt based on the VPC’s non-study) has pretty thoroughly been debunked by some smart cracker.

    I saw the NBC report on “black rifles” yesterday (July 19) evening and was pleasantly surprised at its objectivity and balance; especially featuring a “civilian” pro-gun rights woman practicing on a combat type shooting range.

    These rifles are great for self-defense purposes which is why I think many polticians want to ban them. Politicians generally prefer unarmed peasants.

    The media wonders why intelligent Americans consider them to be idiots when they dont even take time to look up what a “assault rifle” is.

    Encyclopdia Britannica says a assault rifle is…

    “military firearm that is chambered for ammunition of reduced size or propellant charge and that has the capacity to switch between semiautomatic and fully automatic fire. Because they are light and portable yet still able to deliver a high volume of fire with reasonable accuracy at modern combat ranges of 300500 m (1,0001,600 feet), assault rifles have replaced the high-powered bolt-action and semiautomatic rifles of the World War II era as the standard infantry weapon of modern armies. Their ease of handling makes them ideal for mobile assault troops crowded into personnel carriers or helicopters, as well as for guerrilla fighters engaged in jungle or urban warfare. Widely used assault rifles are the United States’ M16, the Soviet Kalashnikov (the AK-47 and modernized versions), the Belgian FAL and FNC, and the German G3. (See also AK-47; M16 rifle.)”

    Now if a retired Fireman can look up info and therefore not sound like a total moron when discussing something one would think that the “educated” media lops would think to do so as well but that would be dealing in FACTS, something the media appears to be allergic to.
