False. So what and only marginally true.

They make 30+ round magazines for handguns. Glock makes a factory 33round magazine.

You can measure a firearm's power a lot of ways. By many measures a 45ACP, 44 Magnum can be comparable. Not in muzzle velocity, but stopping power for sure. Energy will always be higher in a lightweight high velocity round because KE = .5mv^2

Finally, you can easily modifify many pistols to full auto, and there are pistols built full auto. Google Glock 18. Just like an AK or other "assault rifles."

Ya'll know a .22 can be made into a gattling gun?

and they make 100 round drum magazines for rifles

it's just a better gun to kill people with than any handgun and quite cheap too in most countries

Only fucking retards use drum magazines. Those things jam 100% of the time.

Kind of like taking in 65,000 unknowns from the middle east.

I'm not denying that an AK 47 has more "firepower" than a handgun. The important distinction is the environment needed to capitalize on that additional firepower. The North Hollywood shootout would be an example of a rifle benefiting a shooter. It contains nearly all of the elements you describe - drum magazines, illegal fully automatic weapons...But that was an actual shootout. Bank robbers with rifles versus cops with handguns and shotguns - shooting at distances beyond the effective range of handguns and buckshot.

Mass shootings are not shootouts. It's a turkey shoot - a bunch of helpless hostages trapped in a room. It doesn't matter if you've got a glock or an AK - especially when the police take 3 hours to enter the building.

Are we really having an argument about which gun can kill people better?

Outlawing drum magazines will lead to more deaths. Outlawing full-auto has already proven that.

It's funny how Americans time and time again completely neglects the fact. Switzerland has the almost exact se gun laws a the US and 1% of the murder rate.

I guess one example is all we need to declare the truth. It Has Been Proven.

Switzerland has 1% of the racial makeup of America.
post #506 of 1310
So what you are saying is that some races are more prone to killing each other. Interesting.

I said no such thing.

What is the murder rate of Swiss immigrants living in the USA? Whites with Scandinavian names?

With the exception of Scotts-Irish, apples-to-apples euros living in the US (and even their remote descendants) have similar crimes rates to the population in the euro countries of their extraction.

This is probably the least surprising fact in social science for anyone with a rudimentary understanding of genetics, but is an ongoing source of confusion for supercilious euros.

Wait, are you implying that different nationalities have diverging genetic propensity to crime and that it would explain varying crime rates in the USA?

Social sciences and genetics are not really relatable.
