Not sure where Tex got his info, but the specs the US Army established for the AR-15 to be acceptable included NOT jamming for at least 1,000 rounds fired, and the barrel is designed to never overheat when firing semi-auto, which is 120rpm when there's a "target rich environment" like a crowded classroom or concert and 50rpm when you re-aim after every shot. pausing the firing while walking from classroom to classroom would give the gun plenty of time to avoid overheating.

 

As for "armor piercing ammo" being illegal, the NRAGOP made sure that never happened - google "FMJ for sale" and I found 1,000 rounds of 5.56mm for $195.00. Besides, the Full Metal Jacket is much less lethal than a "soft" round, UNLESS the target is wearing body armor.

 

Ban semi-auto weapons that can fire more than 8 rounds before reloading.

Stop the NRAGOP from killing our school kids

Tex says "If you read the reports, most of the weapons used in the attacks jam up on the shooter."

-------------------------------

Tex If you are talking about Sandy Hook, Las Vegas , Orlando , Parkland just to name a few,  your overheating and  jamming claim doesn't hold water. Maybe in the 1960's (Vietnam era ) jamming was an issue , but it didn't stop most of our mass shootings.

In the first place where is anyone going to obtain 30-50 Armor Piercing Rounds?   It is illegal to sell them.  But if you are saying that a person could buy them illegally, then what makes you think that prohibiting your Assault Rifles will stop people from obtaining them?

 

Your thinking does not compute. 

 

And any person that is familiar with firing automatic weapons, one doesn't squeeze off a magazine of 30 or 50 rounds in succession without the weapon getting hot and jamming.  The procedure is to squeeze off a short burst, hesitate, then follow the procedure.

 

If you read the reports, most of the weapons used in the attacks jam up on the shooter.

   Weird, I thought everyone here could click on all the linked articles AND be able to read the entire article.   Instead of using the reading comprehensive skills that they claim to have the prove the opposite, hmmmm.

      Apparently an entire City Council agreed and I have yet to read that the citizens of Deerfield are taking to streets in angry protest.

Finally some common sense realizing that Military Style Assault Weapons belong in the hands of our Military and Law Enforcement ONLY !!!

 

 


Can you describe what constitutes an assault weapon? 

 

What steps would you recommend keeping the one or two young mentally ill kids from playing Rambo with them?  Yet not affecting the millions of responsible owners and sportspeople?

 

Do you feel that the minority should dictate to these majority of responsible owner?


Currently, less than 50% of households in the US own guns - therefore gun owners are still the minority.

Perhaps the new census - in which by law - all questions must be truthfully answered - will come up with a verifiable percentage...

 

Those imaginary whackadoodle right wing delusions are really revealing wishful "thinking" - aren't they?
