More proof that gun bans work.
Of course they point out the ONE murder with an AK and say its in the top 15.
Except that there were 10,000 submitted and only 161 were that CALIBER.
For those keeping score, thats 1.61%.
Think of the children.
gun ban = law abiding citizens can't own guns = less demand for guns = cheaper guns for criminals
the gun already exists, let's put it in the right hands...
54 vs 44 definitely screams overwhelming preference to me.
wow, the most manufactured type of gun is the one used most in crime
stop the presses!
The Law of Probability!
Excuse me, but aren't semi-automatics as thing as auto-loading? WTF are citizens doing with that kinda fire power?!?!?!
well, semi-automatics do indeed prepare a new round for firing as part of their firing mechanics
should we only let the criminal next door, and the cops 2 hours away have "that kinda firepower"?
You must be new here.
yes, yes i am...
I was being sarcastic when I initially responded to this thread, I often respond that way to threads with anti-gun news articles in them. As do many regulars in here.
thanks, i figured that much out on my own
Studies show that 40% of all "sick days" are taken on Monday and Friday!
studies show that 94% of car accidents are caused by vehicles with 4 wheels
ban 4 wheeled vehicles
Great article. Classic example of misinformation campaign.
No real news content, and statistics of the "water is wet" variety.
Real intent is to cast a slant on firearms, linking their use/existence to an unsavoury element of society, by 'innocently' reporting the facts. Just reporting facts, is all.
Why would anyone use a revolver to commit a crime, anyway? Granted, once two people start shooting at each other it's pretty unlikely either of them will still be standing after more than a couple of rounds are fired, but I would think a smart criminal would use a gun that can be reloaded with a flick of a switch instead of manually, round by round -- and if you're both still alive after going through a full magazine, I suspect the first person to finish reloading will be the winner.
EDIT: Then again, I did just use the words "smart criminal", so that probably invalidates my whole train of thought.
No brass left behind, revolvers are probably cheaper than most autoloaders.
Aren't blacks the real problem here? I mean, if they are committing 95% of these crimes in Chicago, isn't the solution to clearly ban blacks from owning guns?
Revolvers are better suited for crimes as someone has mentioned they don't leave spent brass. This whole thing smells like propraganda to push for a semi auto handgun ban in said city.
if you're gonna get into shootout where you need more than six rounds you probably need to reassess your target
or carry another revolver
[Liberal Retard]If we banned all guns, this wouldn't have happened.[/Liberal Retard]
all handguns have been effectively banned in chicago since like 83
In my opinion, you should be more realistic about assessing your abilities in a life-or-death situation. I guarantee you won't make beautiful, perfect kill shots with every pull of the trigger.
And even if you're a robot and you can do that, you don't know what you might run into. I carry a 10-shot semiauto and keep an extra magazine in the car.
that's self defence which is another kettle of fish
what they are saying is that semi-autos are used more in crimes but if you're involved in a crime that's going to require a semi-auto's high capacity you should probably choose another target or reassess your career
