No, that's what they call bolt action hunting rifles.

It's amazing to me that they think semi-automatic "assault weapons" are "inaccurate bullet hoses", but bolt action guns with scopes are "too accurate".

One wonders if there is such a thing as the "Goldilocks Gun", a gun that is "just right".

Makes sense, as most NRA members view themselves as part of the rightful freedom-fighter organization delivering armed resistance to the democratically elected US government.

Well, they do oppose the UN's Small Arms Treaty, just like Syria, Iran and North Korea - all sponsors of terrorism.

And they made sure the gunpowder from the Boston bombs wasn't tracable and have been fighting to ensure future Tsarnaevs can buy firearms without a background check.

So, it's not just their logo that makes them look like terrorists.

I love how the only thing conservatives have on Rachel is insults about her appearance (and by the way she's cute). I can't imagine what it must be like to have to argue from a wrong position all the time and have to resort to stuff like this.

It hasn't been confirmed what kind of explosive they used, and like ballistic fingerprinting, explosive tagging (we know who bought this explosive and where) is a CSI-level misinformed gun-grabber platitude.  Plastic explosives in this country are tagged with a chemical marker to make them easier to detect by detection dogs.

Straight from the horses' mouth.  But go ahead, keep blaming the NRA for science....

The NRA was founded in 1871 (with the same logo as far as I can tell) and for its first 100 years it was a simple sporting organization. From the 1930s through the 1960s the NRA supported gun control legislation. It wasn't until the 1970s that it was taken over by people who think the Second Amendment is under attack or that it would make a lot of money to say it is.

I shudder to think what they would make of my old unit logo:

It has it all:  Weaponry being waved about, foreign language stuff, martial symbolism.  Hell, we even specialized in the use of explosives.

I should be on some sort of watchlist!

Wait a minute:  The powder used was either black powder, or a black powder substitute.  Those are absolutely required for use in traditional muzzleloaders.  You know, the kind people claim are the types specifically protected by the Second Amendment.*

in fact, you *HAVE* to use black powder in guns like those used during the Revolutionary War, because black powder substitutes like Pyrodex and Triple7 aren't sensitive enough to be used in flintlock muskets, rifles, and pistols by themselves.

So by the logic of pretty much every gun control organization, black powder is specifically protected by the Second Amendment, and arguably stuff like Pyrodex and Triple7 (which can be used straight in Civil War era percussion muzzleloaders).


*BTW, that guy is *SLOW*.  I can reload faster than that, and I use a rifle which is slower to load than a musket.  Either he's unfamiliar with loading and shooting a flintlock, or he's taking his sweet time on purpose.

Fark It: It hasn't been confirmed what kind of explosive they used


Trust me, the major component was either black powder, or more likely (because it's more available) a black powder substitute like Pyrodex.

The huge white cloud of smoke is the dead giveaway, but if you need a more detailed analysis of why it had to be that, here you go:

Boston Marathon Bombing: Deriving some Physics and other info from video analysisSome highlights:So, in 0.02 seconds, the flame front expanded about 10 feet, or about 500 feet per second (340 MPH). The speed of sound in air is about 1100 feet per second, so this is a sub-sonic deflagration not a detonation.dittybopper's note:  Smokeless powder, black powder, and BP substitutes deflagrate, unlike actual explosives.  That means this wasn't C-4 or Semtex or TATP, or ANFO, or any other actual explosive.Additionally, the explosion left a large white cloud of dust in the air, and a black scorch mark at the presumed site of the explosion.dittybopper's note:  He means smoke, not dust, and a big white cloud of smoke and a black scorch mark are the hallmarks of black powder (or a substitute).   Smokeless powder wouldn't generate that much smoke, and may or may not leave a scorch mark.  However, I think that "scorch mark" is really fouling from black powder or a BP substitute.

I would have liked to see an actual floor debate to the bill, because I liked some of the proposals (allowing interstate gun sales at FFLs, concealed carry permits substituting for NICS checks).  I think the pro-gunners were shortsighted in dismissing it outright because there were actual compromises and concessions to gun owners, not Brady Campaign "compromises."

Here in Illinois, our concealed carry bill got a wider margin (64-45 in favor) of support than Manchin-Toomey but falled short of the votes necessary to override Quinn's veto and Chicago's "home-rule."  Meanwhile, the alternate bill proposed by Chicago politicians of a may-issue permit garnered only 31 votes, and this is with a court-order looming overhead.  I kind of find it hard to muster outrage at the Manchin-Toomey bill failing 56-44, when our concealed carry in Illinois is something that is court-ordered and failed with a larger margin of support....

"Losing badly" = garnering 8 more votes than the "winning" side. Truly the will of the people.
