    • Nick’s Notes
    • What the heck is fully semi-automatic?
    • Headline reads: “Trump appears to be backing away from 21 year age limit for assault weapon purchases.” Please, define for everyone what an assault weapon is? Just as a point of contention with Trump here: What would a 21 year age limit even stop? Because in our state, a parent could just buy it and then hand it down to someone younger.
    • This guy has clearly not shot a rifle before. That thing is kicking him like a mule because it’s not up to his shoulder.
    • “This is what an AR-15 sounds like.” No, this is what a .223 sounds like. It sounds like a gunshot. It’s no scarier than any other gunshot. If it was shot out of another gun that shot .223, it would sound nearly identical.
    • This little fairy in the video leans away from the gun as he shoots it as if he’s terrified it’ll take on a life of it’s own and shoot back at him.
    • “Now those are single shots. If I wanted to fire this on full-semi-automatic all I do is keep firing.” No kidding, numbnuts. You keep firing it the same way you just did. He’s inventing words.
    • “Now I won’t probably hit the target.” Why not? Because you’re trash? What point is he proving? I thought this was the god-tier gun that could kill any person regardless of where it was aimed and at any distance?
    • “It’s designed to inflict maximum damage.” What? .223 isn’t going to inflict maximum damage. It’s only going to inflict the maximum damage of a .223 round. It won’t do as much damage as, say, a .50 cal round.
    • “In my personal opinion, you have to receive a whole lot of training to use this weapon. And this weapon, in the wrong hands, can be more dangerous than most weapons because of its capability to do a lot of damage in a short period of time, and be irreversible.” He says this right after he let a poor excuse of a man shoot the gun with no training at all. His personal opinion isn’t worth a crap because he literally made up words to describe the process of firing the gun. Why does this weapon do more damage than a .308 or the 7.62×39 which is what most AK platforms use? .308 is a very common hunting round. Also, what gunshot isn’t irreversible?
  • Does the AR platform inspire crazy people more than other rifles? Or do crazy people use this weapon above others because its copy cats.
  • Everyone is losing their stuff on NRA. Companies are “pulling support” but what I want to know is what the hell the NRA has to do with an airline. I already don’t like their lobbying because i just don’t like lobbyist. But what else are they in?
  • Trump said that the government should take your guns first and then give due process of law. “ I think they should have taken them away anyway, whether they had the right or not.” In regards to the Florida shooter. No. Not at all. https://www.dailywire.com/news/27706/betrayal-trump-says-government-should-take-guns-ben-shapiro#
  • Wanna get weird? It’s the AR-15 episode apparently. “Worshippers clutching AR-15 rifles hold commitment ceremony” http://www.mcall.com/news/breaking/mc-nws-pennsylvania-church-blessing-ar-15-rifles-20180228-story.html
