FULLY AUTO M4 MILITARY RIFLE
The left has the agenda to take away semi-automatic rifles from law abiding gun owners. They want to take aways theses.
FYI – This is a Colt M4 Carbine fully automatic and is NOT available to the public. You can NOT go buy this in a Walmart, Field & Stream or any other sporting goods store. So there is no need to take away something we can not have anyway. But look at the above picture closely – this is a MILITARY FULLY AUTOMATIC RIFLE (some call this an assault rifle). We military personnel called them our M4 or simply our weapon.
SEMI-AUTOMATIC AR15 RIFLE
The rifle you see here looks a lot like the one above, but it is NOT because even though it looks the same it is NOT a MILITARY FULLY AUTOMATIC RIFLE. It is in fact a Ruger AR556 Semi-Automatic rifle. They (the ignorant gun grabbers) want to take these away from law abiding gun owners because they do not understand that they only look alike. They do not function the same. Not even close when it comes to what a Military gun is designed to do and that is fire bullets as fast and accurate as possible.
Modern semiautos fire a round every time the trigger is pulled. So how fast can you pull the trigger?
Top Three-Gun competitors can indeed pull the trigger three times a second — for short periods of time. So the theoretical “cycling rate” might be 180 rounds per minute, but the reality is you’re only maintaining it for bursts of a second or two. That sort of firing generates tremendous amounts of heat as well. In battle, when military rifles are fired full-auto, they can get hot enough that the barrels will warp (which is why full-time machine guns have easily replaceable barrels).
Moreover, most modern semiautos use 30-round magazines, which means the mag would have to be changed six times to reach the magic 180 number. An expert can change a mag on some rifles in about two to three seconds (depending on the gun and how he/she has staged the mags), but that’s still 12–18 seconds of lost shooting time per minute. So a maximum theoretical rate of about 138 rounds per minute.
For an average shooter, you’re talking about a top speed of about two shots per second, which means you’re emptying a mag in 15 seconds. Reloading takes maybe four seconds, so it’s 19 seconds to empty a mag and recharge. So the effective rate is about 90 rounds per minute, not counting the time it takes to aim.
Law abiding citizens can buy one of these providing they pass a background check.
SEMI-AUTO RUGER RANCH RIFLE
This next rifle is one not on the list of the far lefts agenda to take from citizens. Take a look at this rifle. The below rifle is OK for us to buy, own, shoot all we want. But the fact is this rifle is the exact same as the one above they want to take away. Yes they added a pistol grip (looks cool) and a collapsable stock (allows people to adjust it for their size) and they made the sights a little bigger so they are easier to use. But did you know that all 3 of the rifles shown are either .223 or 5.56 caliber. The bottom two are best semi-auto and therefore have the same rate of fire (they are semi-auto) but because the second one (the AR556 and this one is a Ruger Ranch Rifle. Mechanically they work the same. One just LOOKS like a Military style rifle.
Education and ignorance both can help or hurt us. I hope this helped educate some of you. And feel free to go to your local gun store and ask them questions. I know some of these things because I have had my hands on guns since I was about 10 yrs of age. Maybe 12 – can’t remember exactly when. My dad and I used to hunt, he had a sporting goods store and sold guns and I was in the Army from 1976 to 2005. I was also a unit Armor and worked on many of the weapons and fired many FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS SYSTEMS such as the M16A2, MARK19, M2, M60, and the Grease Gun shown below.
Last but not least is BOMBS – Explosives are used all the time by the public (companies) to destroy things. Bridges, mining, road building contractors use them all the time. Explosives are highly regulated because they are dangerous.
We all know that no matter what laws you pass if someone wants to kill others they will find a way. Does not matter if it is a handgun which was just used by a kid in school, which was stopped by who? A good guy with a what? Yes a gun.
So how about we stop the gun protest and start raising our children like our parents did long ago. How about we stop letting social media, TV, video games, thugs, teachers and schools raise our kids and we stand up and raise them ourselves. I’ve was raised around guns all my life. It is PEOPLE not GUN. It is lack or morals, lack of teaching our children. In the mean time lets harden our schools, get rid of GUN FREE ZONES and protect our CHILDREN more than we protect our gold, silver, money or what we consider valuables. And while we are at it let’s protect them before they are born and stop abortion.
