Clearly, this Paris-style attack could have easily been prevented with Paris-style gun control.

Maybe if they made attacking cops a hate crime in Paris, this guy wouldn't have done it.

Maybe have all the citizens undergo diversity training? Of course, if you're Muslim and the diversity training offends you, you shouldn't have to go.

Eventually guns will become more, and more a thing of the past as technology advances. Even wars will be fought with machines like drones. I guess guns will make a huge comeback when skynet goes live.

It is not a "Paris style" attack...

The Paris attacks were perpetrated by a coordinated team who had access to preparation, logistics and a modicum of training, this is one lonely dude who barely left his area to kill people using no specific contacts and a gun store. Please.

Of course we will, because we won't let you fucking statists take them. It's a constant fight with you fucking people.

A friend forwarded me this one...

 What is it like to fire an AR-15? It’s horrifying, menacing and very very loud

But very few gun shop owners do anything close to Stelmach’s sniff test — and he acknowledged how easy it is to find another gun shop owner willing to make the sale.

Very easy. In fact, as Philadelphia Daily News columnist Helen Ubinas showed today, you can get a military weapon in seven minutes in this country.

 

I wish I could get a gun in seven minutes.  Last time I bought one, the ATF check took 25 minutes.  Also, the AR15 is not a military weapon.  It is the civilian variant.

 

Quote:
I’ve shot pistols before, but never something like an AR-15. Squeeze lightly on the trigger and the resulting explosion of firepower is humbling and deafening (even with ear protection).
 
The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.

Bullshit.  I shot all day with hearing protection, and something like an AR15 is quiet with hearing protection, and there is no way he bruised his shoulder.

 

Quote:
 Even in semi-automatic mode, it is very simple to squeeze off two dozen rounds before you even know what has happened. In fully automatic mode, it doesn’t take any imagination to see dozens of bodies falling in front of your barrel.

If you can't control the gun in semi-auto, there is no way you're going to shoot dozens of people in full auto mode.  The AR15's trigger is no easier to pull than most handguns.

It's the feeling that's important. Just like the meme going around today about 13.3 bullets per second...that has nothing to do with the tragedy in Orlando but thousands and thousands of fucktards are sure that's the capacity of the gun used.

For reference, this guy shoots 65 rounds per second:

Eep! I always shot with a plug in my right ear. M4s are so high frequency that shit hurts after a while. m2 on the other hand I can shoot without ear pro fine.

I always wore and wear plugs.  Sometimes when sporting clay shooting I don't, but a lot of mechanical noises like a lawn mower or vacuum cleaner cause my ears to ring if I don't wear hearing protection.  The point is the gun doesn't sound like an explosion or big bomb with hearing protection.

I'm sort of paranoid about my hearing now. I always wear hearing (and eye) protection anytime I shoot or am anywhere near a range.
