What I found interesting was the point that the difference between automatic and semi-automatic is minimal.
What's your opinion? Do you agree with his assessment of the two types of assault rifles, the semi- and the fully-automatic? Isn't is sometimes said that the semi-auto version is more deadly because the shooter has increased control and he doesn't run out of ammo so quickly?The NRA bosses don't dispute the AK's murderous capabilities or argue the fact that assault weapons are the mayhem-spreading gun of choice for drug dealers and gang members. Nor do they quarrel with Traver over the notion that stray bullets kill and maim innocent Americans with nauseating regularity.
No, the NRA bosses are all tied up in knots because Traver didn't make it clear enough to the TV audience that a fully automatic weapon (like the one the reporter apparently blasted) can get a few rounds out more quickly than a semi-automatic and is not as readily available to the general public (although they would like it to be).
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
