Ted Burt: So much ignorance about guns

In reaction to “Ban those assault weapons,“ the writer of that commentary talks about AK-47s not staying for looking.

Properly, it is a firearm that is capable of searching, even though it likely would not be most people’s preference.

Nonetheless, I would like to say that the M-1 carbine was not built to be utilised for looking, either, nonetheless I was born at Beale Air Force Foundation and hunted this location as a kid.



When I was 12 several years old and hunting with my father, he located a excellent rifle for this younger hunter, with minimal recoil, short stock, exact and lawful for hunting. The rifle was a M-1 carbine, which produced the past assault weapons ban and was registered as a assault weapon, and was afterwards eradicated from that record.

I will say to all those who would say it was not designed as a looking rifle — hmmm, what do you connect with a searching rifle? A gun that retains fewer then five rounds?



That very a lot leaves out just about each revolver at any time made. An AK-47, M-1 carbine, AR-15, mini-14 and Remington 740 742 are all designed to shoot a single shot with 1 pull of the result in.

Nonetheless the mini-14 was built as a ranch rifle! And the Remingtons hardly ever made a one record in the assault weapons ban of the ’80s — why ? Because of ignorant people today who do not know guns, do not know what a gun can do, and have no clue about what the variance is.

A looking rifle is to a hunter as a motor vehicle is to a commuter. We want a comfortable rifle to hold that is light-weight and quick on the shoulder.

Any semi auto rifle can be and is appropriate for looking. I have a semi-car I use for deer. And I have a semi auto for looking birds.

Just like a commuter purchases a car for ease and comfort, you really do not need to have a cushioned seat. You really don’t need cruise regulate, air conditioning, and never neglect the automated shifting transmission!

Really don’t convey to us hunters what is very good, or wanted, or intended for us! I have no challenges with any background check out you would like to do. But as a hunter and gun owner, I do not like gun-ignorant individuals telling me what kind of gun I need to have.

And for those persons who consider the govt can explain an assault weapon, I can demonstrate you four rifles by 4 producers that had been made to same precise technical specs. Still a single is an assault weapon. The other three are not! Just mainly because a rifle is black or is semi automobile does not indicate it is a assault rifle.

Okay, more than enough on that now. How about dealing with the people who get rid of people today? How about mental health? Do we even have hospitals for them any longer? Do we even make them take their meds any longer? Do we even appear into what results in it any longer?

I observe people today actively playing online video game titles that demonstrate young individuals killing. You can get rewards — money and prizes — for killing additional and a lot more folks, nonetheless ignorant people want to say it is the guns!
