    Interesting editorial on firearms

    There's one line in this article that says,

    "The Dayton shooter used a 100-round magazine with 250 rounds of ammunition and an AR-15 pistol that was modified to act like a rifle;".

    What does that even mean?

    It means the writer has no idea of the facts of the case. Nor has any knowledge of firearms.
    Whatever adjective or verb comes to mind, I am...NotSo.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    Learned yesterday that he had a straw buyer for the gun and the body armor who stored it at the buyer's house so the shooter's parents wouldn't know he had them. I put the article in the Dayton shooter thread.
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    It’s like everything else, you are making a statement, whether right or wrong doesn’t matter, but everybody else is mad about something someone says so it must be true. Like I hate president Trump, and ask them why , and it’s because he’s a ass or because everyone else does. People without their own mind.

    A lot of non-gun owners read things like this and take it for the truth without question.
    ​All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.

    I think it means he had a 100 magazine, and another 250 rounds in conventional magazines. He also put a shoulder stock on an AR pistol, essentially making it an SBR.

    well it means he had a very, very good magazine loader to get that many rounds in the drum magazine, he had pockets that were obviously double stitched to handle that much weight in ammo, and he was using a Bruce Jenner manufacture AR that could not decide exactly whether it was a pistol, or a rifle.
    well that's what I get out of this, your definition may differ.

    Ammo will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you through times of no ammo.
