Why do TM and others keep pushing this meme on how the press handles "gun porn" as if they would give a carp even if they knew all the technicals in expert detail. Has nothing to do with the semantics and accuracy of detail but with the "narrative" that has to consistenly fit the "agenda".

This has nothing to do with efficacy of facts or understanding of gun minutae but rather with a constant political manifestation of guns=bad; pepsi=good.

David, Infamous Deplorable

Assault rifle — a selective fire, detachable magazine fed weapon, usually chambered for a cut-down version of a full battle rifle cartridge. The original assault rifle was the StG 44 which was chambered for the 7.92x33 mm cartridge, a shortened version of the 7.92x57 mm cartridge used in the Mauser bolt-action rifle that was the standard issue to soldiers in the Wehrmacht. The reason that the Germans developed the StG 44 was because they discovered that the vast majority of combat took place at under 400 m, and the standard cartridge was way overpowered for the job it was supposed to do. By making the cartridge smaller, that allowed soldiers to carry more of them, and then they put the whole thing in an automatic weapon. The idea was to duplicate the firepower of a submachine gun, but have it accurate at ranges of up to 400 m.

The war ended before they could get the StG 44 into really wide circulation, but the AK-47 is almost a direct knock-off of the design. Not so much of the specifics of the weapon, but of the concept. The Russians made it cheaper, easier to use, and impervious to dirt, mud, abuse, and stupid users. The AK-47 is one of the most robust rifles in the world.

The M-16 and the AK-74 aren't technically "assault rifles," because they don't use an intermediate cartridge like the StG 44 and the AK-47. However, the concept has been expanded to include smaller caliber rounds that fulfill the original design of the intermediate cartridges—lighter ammunition with sub-par ultra long range performance, to allow the soldiers to carry more bullets and still be effective in the closer range of combat.

That is the definition and history of "assault rifle." An "assault weapon" is a "gun that has something scary and black on it that I don't like."

David

David, Infamous Deplorable

An interesting parenthetical to this huge dissertation: There has been a lot of pushback recently on the decisions to go with smaller, subcaliber rounds like the 5.56 mm used in the M-16. It turns out that while the Germans were correct that most of their combat took place at less than 400 m, that turns out not to be the case when you are fighting in places like Afghanistan and Iraq, where the distances are much longer. There was a very interesting 75 page monograph entitled "Taking back the Infantry Half-Kilometer," which has really nasty things to say about our current crop of weapons and ammunition given the longer ranges of combat that occur in Afghanistan.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

The biggest problems for anything beyond about 200 meters are wind doping, hold over and vision.
A high ballistic coefficient 223 bullet is no more deflected by wind than a larger caliber one.
The 223 rounds are generally higher velocity than larger rounds and are therefore generally easier to compensate for bullet drop.
Iron sights are not very effective for shooting over 200 yards. Hitting anything at 300 yards or beyond with iron sights, especially in non-sniper combat, is mostly a matter of luck.

lyle, no.
It like all bullets eventually falls to the ground at the end of it's parabolic arc.
One theory in adopting it was its smaller diameter would lead to more survivable wounds and fewer mortal ones. It was also presumed the smaller caliber, higher velocity bullet would be more likely to tumble once it entered the human body. This is largely not true. All bullets can take odd paths when they expend their energy in a target. Because of their higher velocity and smaller mass 223 bullets may be somewhat more prone to yaw in flesh or fragment than a higher momentum larger caliber but they all can and do deflect and or fragment.

Oh yes,it is all about the gun narrative. There is a story in the Manchester (NH) Union Leader about a woman was driving on Rt.101 in Epping, NH ten days ago and a rock hit her windshield. Except it wasn't a rock. It was a bullet and she was driving near the Sig Sauer training facility! Well,I'm very familiar with that highway and hubby and I took handgun training at the Sig facility a few years ago. She wasn't driving near the facility,more likely someone was target shooting in the woods near the highway. But the reporter was able to get Sig Sauer,guns and bullets into the article. I'll be keeping my eye on the Manchester paper to learn the rock/bullet in the windshield result.

I have my doubts that the Euro's know to that level of certainty. Its all for political and public dissemination anyway. There is no active Humint, only forensic explanations of what happened and how they had him on their radar (right). I don't think we know either here in the Homeland.

I read last year that every lone wolf and other terror attacks here since 911 have been committed by bad actors known to the authorities either prior surveillance or interviews. Yet we haven't stopped any of them except the few that they brag about.

We can't even deal with the muderous thugs of MS-13 here that have more notches on their machetes than the Gotti family has on their guns. Now the SJW hand-wringing on Long Island has begun because the gang was formed by those escaping violence in El Salvador back in the 80's and 90's. And we all know or what was responsible for that internal violence, don't we.

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/04/new-report-fbi-willing-pay-50000-former-british-spy-trump-dossier/ A friend writes:" I'm trying to wrap my mid around this. Being unwilling to pay unless Steele provided "solid corroboration" seems to indicate sound judgment by the FBI. That Steele was never paid seems to indicate their judgment that there was no "solid corroboration" of the contents of the dossier.
How then does it happen one month later that this dossier for which there is NO "solid corroboration" ​is used to get a FISA order on a US citizen who, it is claimed, is an agent of a foreign government? I'd like to see how that dossier info is characterized: "information for which there is no solid corroboration?" That sort of honesty wouldn't have gotten them a FISA order."

If only SJWs felt the same concern for actual productive citizens to feel safe and free from harassment by criminals, illegals and oppressive government.

If a .264 non magnum could knock down a few hundred 5 or 6 ton wild beasts without the shooter getting stomped I'm pretty sure a .223 will suffice on a 160 pound goathumper.

Hmmm, it seems the NYT is worried about the redistricting case fro WI, as in anything not slanted to Democrats should be illegal. They worry the SC won't agree with that position.

The article has some sob stories about Dems that got redistricted -- including one near me that had his feels hurt because he lost to a Republican in his newly drawn district which includes nothing but farms and those nasty right wing farmers. (He used to get the Kenosha bus in (IL) vote in city wards). Best part of that... the guy didn't move to Kenosha to run because he can't grow soybeans in the city.

Frank Herbert had to assure the fans that the film would be fab and true to the book(s). We know how that turned out.

The David Lynch version certainly has, well, issues, and can't really be described as "faithful to the book" but I think it still mostly works. It does have a fantastic cast, and I think Lynch and co. really captured the look of the world quite well.

The SciFo channel version was (mostly) far more faithful, but the cast was not too strong and the look of the production was unimpressive. The "Chuldren of Dune" sequel (encompassing the next two books) was really good, though.

Yes, that's persuasive. The Euro approach, after all, emphasizes controlling the citizenry not controlling the terrorists.

Still, whatever the actual numbers of known wolves, that number is large and beyond the ability of the authorities to handle. Certainly at the PC level of effort they're permitted to expend.

MY DINNER WITH Andre OBAMA!

Starring : Emily Cohn
The senior business editor at Business Insider. She was formerly the managing editor of Tech Insider and worked for the Huffington Post.
and featuring Special Guest Star, Wallace Shawn

Wally: "So Emily, what was it like, your dinner with Obama?

Emily: Well we were headed to Cosme's in New York's Flatiron District to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We obviously had no idea going into this that the Obamas would be making an appearance.

Wally: Cosme's? Oh, that's a great restaurant!

Emily: Absolutely! I made the reservation exactly 30 days in advance, knowing that a table at the trendy Mexican restaurant is hard to come by. Since opening in 2014, Cosme's has been one of the hottest restaurants in New York City.

Wally: That goes without saying, but was there any trouble with traffic or anything?

Emily: Well walking to the restaurant, I knew something was up.

Wally: So you walked? You didn't Uber?

Emily: No, we walked. It's environmentally friendly!

Wally: So how did you know something was up?

Emily:Well Wally, the first sign was a group of about 20 New York Police Department officers on motorcycles. They were huddled outside Gramercy Tavern on East 20th Street, a block south of Cosme!

Wally: Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod!

Emily: Yeah, I knew President Obama was in the city to bid farewell to the United Nations General Assembly, so I figured he was eating at Gramercy Tavern or Trattoria Il Mulino next door. After all, the Obamas have great taste in restaurants.

Wally: Impeccable Taste, is the word I've heard.

Emily: Absolutely, impeccable taste. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food. But when I got to East 21st Street, the security was even more intense. It turned out the Obamas were eating at Cosme's, too. After getting over the initial shock that we had chosen the same restaurant as the president, I began to worry we might not get in at all.

Wally: Golly!

Emily: And a line of ambulances blocked off the street entirely to cars, and about half of the block was closed to pedestrians.

Wally: So what did you do?

Emily: Well I walked up to about five police officers and told them we had a reservation at Cosme's, thinking they would let us past the blue tape barricade. But their response was to "get lost," "keep walking," and "find somewhere else to eat."

Wally: Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod!

Emily: So I took a chance and I pleaded with the cops until one let us through the police tape. We were handed off to a group of Secret Service officers who were guarding the restaurant.

Wally: I am stunned at how brave you are, Emily, literally stunned! You had to deal with Secret Service Agents?

Emily: Yes and this was definitely the most intense security check I've ever gone through. One officer checked my purse and sifted through everything in my wallet as well as my makeup case. A second officer ran a metal detector wand up and down my body.

Wally: You are the bravest person I have ever met, Emily, literally the bravest!

Emily: You can't even imagine how loud my heart was pounding, Wally, but then the Secret Service officers told us the restaurant had found out that the Obamas were coming only five minutes before they arrived. A reservation was made for them earlier under a pseudonym. And on our way in, I got a glimpse of 'The Beast,' the president's armored limo!

Wally: Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod!

Emily: Well we finally sat down, around 7:40 p.m. The restaurant was buzzing. Everyone who is anyone was talking about the Obamas, who had arrived about 15 minutes before us.

Wallace Shawn: I am so blown away by this! I, I, I, I just can't get over it. Did he sit down next to you?

Emily: No. They were seated in a private room, though, so we couldn't see them. Secret Service officers were everywhere.

Wally: So you didn't get to see what President Obama ordered?

Emily: Well the Maitre D let everyone know that the Obamas ordered tuna tostadas, burrata, lobster, short ribs, and the duck carnitas!

Wally: Ha! The Duck Carnitas. I knew it. Impeccable taste!

Emily: Absolutely impeccable taste! And I had the lobster with shiso, ginger mojo, and brown butter, one of my favorite dishes. Cosme's most famous dish is its duck carnitas. The dish features a half of a duck, braised for many hours, accompanied by homemade tortillas and house sauces.

Wally: So you had a fabulous meal but you didn't get to see President Obama?

Emily: Well not initially,but we strategized that we needed to stretch out our meal as long as possible if we were going to get a glimpse of the Obamas leaving. We took a long break between each course, and the carnitas kept us going for a while.

Wally: You're a genius Emily, an absolute genius! So what happened. Don't keep me in suspense any longer.

Emily: Well, Finally...

Wally: Yes?

Emily: ...around 9:30 p.m...

Wally: Yes?

Emily: ...the Obamas emerged from a door in the back of the restaurant...

Wally: Yes? And???

Emily:...Everyone, including servers and diners, stood up to applaud!!!

Wally: Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod! I am gob-smacked! I am snorfled! I am, I am, I am, I am so, so...Golly...I don't even know what I am I'm so excited! I don't even know the meaning of words anymore! You actually got to see President Obama walk out of a restaurant!?!

Emily: Yes Wally, and it was even better than that! Michelle headed pretty quickly for the front door...

Wally: Michelle!?! You got to see Michelle? Ohmigod, I love her arms. Ohmigod,Ohmigod,Ohmigod!

Emily: ...but then President Obama shook a few hands and smiled on his way out!

Wally: I've died and gone to Heaven tonight hearing that, Emily! Simply died and gone to Heaven! Did you get a handshake?

Emily: We didn't get a handshake, but we did get a few grainy photos.It was without question the most exhilarating experience of my life! Thanks for the best anniversary gift ever, Obamas! And there's something even more amazing than all that, Wally?

Wally: Even more amazing than that? What, Emily, what could possibly be more amazing than your dinner with President Obama?

Emily: They're going to publish my write-up about having Dinner with Obama in Business Insider and millions of people will be able to read all about how wonderful he is and his impeccable taste and all, and i'll probably get a guest slot on MSNBC and Charlie Rose and maybe even CNN to tell the world how wonderful it all was.

Wally: Died and gone to Heaven!
