Late last week, Rolling Stone — the magazine sued for publishing a campus rape hoax — published a piece called, “All-American Killer: How the AR-15 Became Mass Shooters’ Weapon of Choice.”
The piece was written by Tim Dickenson, who admits in the piece he never shot a gun before last August. Nevertheless, Sen. Dianne Feinstein is taking talking points from his piece.
"A handgun [wound] is simply a stabbing with a bullet. It goes in like a nail." With the high-velocity rounds of the AR-15, "it’s as if you shot somebody with a Coke can." https://t.co/xkyw3pEtjn #BanAssaultWeapons

Wow, being shot with a handgun is like being stabbed with a nail? If that’s all, let’s do away with the background check to get one, OK?

Do these anti-gun idiots who think an AR-15 is a "high powered" "assault weapon" or some such nonsense know that "grandpa's huntin' rifle" is really just a high-powered sniper rifle that gets aimed at paper and 4-legged mammals? https://t.co/pBCvazyULK

Every single major handgun round is a bigger caliber than what an AR-15 shoots
I seriously don't get how these people are allowed to make laws about guns when they don't know basics of guns. https://t.co/4YXiYhxTWE

God forbid I ever have to defend myself with my .357 loaded with personal protection rounds, but it would not be like stabbing someone with a nail. https://t.co/S9rc5Q4KFW

Plenty of air behind a 9mm, which is what does the damage in a rifle bullet and why we’re talking about muzzle velocity now. And many handguns fire larger caliber ammo. Plenty of stopping power. Not a pen knife wound. https://t.co/i9OZC9ajIm

Maybe if this wizened zombie had been awake during hearings she would know that there are huge complaints among the soldiers about the lack of stopping power in the 5.56mm AR platform. https://t.co/JEcqrmHnzu

Are we comparing 9mm and 556 or are we comparing 9mm and 20mm Vulcan?

The Left: one bullet from an AR-15 is enough to rip a body apart.
Also the Left: the NRA instructor who shot the church shooter with an AR-15 doesn't count bc his two bullets didn't kill the guy outright and he killed himself https://t.co/QlOvFd8rNt
