EvilEgg: Ow! That was my feelings!: sbking: I am not antigun and i believe in the 2nd amendment BUT COME ON...

If those parents let that kid, who is not even a teenager, hold that gun then they have no business being parents.  Foster homes are bad but they would be not cause as much damage to the kid as that home and they would probably save another mass shooting down the road.

I know, i know: guns don't kill people: bla, bla, bla.  How would you feel if he was holding a bottle of bourbon (legal)???

So, an 11 year old holding a .22lr causes you to piss your pants?  Geezus, I have no words.

It's black and has a clip, that's an assault weapon.

Are we supposed to be outraged?  The story's tag implies so.  What is this father doing posting photos of a minor on Facebook?  That's absolutely grounds for losing custody of his child.  Think of all the molesters out there that might jerk off to that photo and the people that steal kids and then sell stolen kids to people without kids in other countries might be able to use the photos to identify the kid's location and steal him.  It's completely irresponsible and we need to teach these parents a lesson -- post photos of your kids online and you'll lose your kid.  Either the government will take your child, or people that steal kids will take your child.  It's better if the government does it first because at least your kid will go to molesters in the United States rather than molesters in the Ukraine.

Looking back at this image it strikes me as funny that my dad very carefully taught me to release the mag and clear the weapon before handling it further but didn't say anything about keeping my finger off the goddamn trigger while he was taking pictures. I'm going to give him some grief about that, I think.

If we teach our kids to hold big guns and shoot big guns, imagine what other large phallic objects they'll want to fondle and stick in their mouths.  This is a Christian nation, and everybody has the right to own a gun, but as a parent it is your duty to teach your kids to be heterosexual and not have him idolize guns and shooting stuff that might turn him gay.  Furthermore, if you insist on teaching your kid his way around a rifle, you better be sure not to dress him so snappy and fashionable.  You're practically sticking your cock in his mouth.  It's wrong.  It's sick.  It's got to stop.  It's time to support the National Association of Guns and Gun Education and Re-education Society.

If you genuinely haven't heard of the Scottish Gaels then you have no business commenting on matters to do with the ethnic origin of popular music in the United States -- you can just go back to your Sociology 101 class and the all- purpose explanation for all evils that "it was the white man what done it".

willfullyobscure: feckingmorons: willfullyobscure: military-style weapon

But they're not military style weapons any more than Chicago Deep Dish Style is pizza (it is a casserole). Military weapons are selctive fire, they can and do fire fully automatic. The kid has a .22 caliber target rifle (it appears to me to be a S&W M&P 15-22) it is not automatic, it fires a rimfire cartridge, it costs about $500. The only similarity to a military rifle is cosmetic.

You just think they look scary and you want all the scary things to go away.

Correct. My argument is about style. A Model 70 can pierce an armored car. A Tikka T3 is a better sniper platform than anything the military uses. A Marlin 60 holds fifteen rounds and can be reloaded in 3 seconds(with a tube). None of these guns look like an AR-15 because they are purpose built- they are not fashion accessories. Guns should not be fashion accessories. We give up nothing by losing these tactifool firearms except the gun nut fantasy world of FEMA camps and Rambo wannabes.

My argument is that people who buy firearms in order to pretend they are bad ass Navy Ranger specops BUDS paratroopeals are fools, and we should not suffer fools gladly, because we do not want to live in a society where the civilian apes military dress, military manners, and so on.

You know who else encouraged the same kind of thing, even recruiting civilian corps of boys to engage in military style exercises and learn to fire military small arms? Who encouraged the fetishization of military culture and military garb? Do you?

You sure you've got that right?  You see, a magazine is just a pile of rounds stored or fed in to a breach.  A magazine is mechanically intrinsic to the loading of the breach.  From the picture, it appears you've got it bass ackwards.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clip_%28ammunition%29

Look at that, you submitted a definition that states a clip is a magazine with no distinguishing characteristics.
Sorry, I'm suddenly bored with this conversation.

It is pretty easy, and if you want to make it basic so that we can all go with a common understanding a clip holds bullets but is removed when the bullets are loaded (into a gun or magazine). A magazine holds bullets inside it and from there the bullets are forced with the use of a spring into the firing chamber of a gun.

It is all about the spring.

Look at that, a magazine with no spring:

[upload.wikimedia.org image 393x599]

You sure you've got a handle on what this is all about?

Not a mag or a clip.  It's a belt.

Try to keep up.

The box is a magazine, so is the hold just behind the torpedo tubes on a submarine.  No springs in either case.

English, it's a language and it's pretty farking demanding.  Learn it.

so the belt on a belt fed machinegun is a magazine, a clip is a magazine, and a magazine is a clip. I get that about right?


Cosmo is a magazine and a cocktail.

SuperNinjaToad: feckingmorons: NRA life memberships are $700 off during a promotion.

Three hundred bucks for a life membership in the NRA is sweet.

ok seriously.. I kinda like guns and love shooting and I obviously have no issue with the 2nd amendment nor people owning firearms.. eventhough I don not care too much for NRA's politics nor some of the derp LaPierre spews being a member holds me no grudge...so what can someone like me benefit from an NRA membership if any?

/serious


Good magazines (I get American Rifleman - others are American Hunter or America's First Freedom). 10K worth of gun insurance, discounts at places (you get them with AAA too - motels, car rental that sort of thing) admission to NRA events for free, voting rights for the NRA board, and they lobby our elected representatives to preserve our Second Amendment rights. They don't try to do 12 different things like some organizations, they are a one issue organization that stays on mission and is very effective.

If you don't like their politics you probably wouldn't want to join, but if you like guns and hunting and do join the American Hunter magazine is probably for you, you can switch magazines if you like (ha! an unintended gun joke).

Odd.
"Exactly the same" with a different magazine capacity.
I imagine the scope would allow greater accuracy from a greater distance.
The stand would allow a steadier shot, from a fixed position.
The flash suppressor would suppress flashes.
The magazine would allow for a higher capacity.

Other than that, they're exactly the same.

Wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. Respect for weapons, and learning how to handle them properly, should be ingrained into a person well before they are of legal age to own one.

What you are suggesting is essentially the anti-gun version of "abstinence only education". And it does not work.
