I have a military assault rifle in my closet as I write. It was a mainstay of a war that more Americans were killed than all the other wars combined. It's an 1853 Enfield rifle musket. Now that single shot rifle is not even considered by the ATF as a "weapon". However, it will put a .58 caliber round out that is bigger than today's sniper rifle. I also have a Mosin-Nagant, the primary weapon used by Russian forces from the late 1800's through the Vietnam era when it was replaced by the AK-47. Mosin-Nagan fired a 7.62 x 54 round. The AK-47 fires a 7.62 x 36 which means it's the same bullet but the AK-47 has less impact. The only gun in the world today that fires a 7.62 x 54 is the modern Russian sniper rifle. The Finnish woman sniper who holds the world record for efficiency in the field used an un-scoped Mosin-Nagant. Of course my WW I Turkish Mauser which fires an 8mm round is in the same case as the rest. Now, The lethality of those guns is greater per round than any modern "assault" rifle of today used by our military. What's magazine capacity have to do with the fact that one only needs one bullet to do the work. Yes an AK-47 can fire in full automatic like a machine gun. But those are illegal for anyone other than police and military to posses. But criminals don't care. The notorious Tommy Gun made famous by the mobs of Chicago back in the 20's used a 45 cal bullet, like the ones in most modern semi-automatic handguns of today. Sub-machine guns use pistol ammunition. I conceal carry a 9mm handgun that has 17 rounds in the gun and a second magazine with another 17 rounds. That's a lot of firepower. No one knows I carry that much firepower under a coat and I do it legally with the blessing of the government.
What people don't realize is that the only part of the gun that is lethal is the bullet. Studies have shown that on full automatic, only the first round is aimed at the target. Because of recoil all subsequent bulltets go high. The military has found that they are far more effective leaving their guns on semi-automatic. Semi-automatic rifles are the same ones that 80% of the hunters out in the woods are using to deer hunt. Take the stock off change it out to look like a hunting rifle and it's totally legal. Leave it looking like a military assault rifle, and it's not. Go figure, the mechanics and bullets are just the same.
The #1 hunting rifle today is the 30-06, it's the same round as the M1-Garrand the primary rifle used by the US Infantry in WW II, and the Israeli Uzi uses the same bullets as the gun I have on my night stand. I've fired an Uzi, my Smith and Western semi-automatic is the gun I want if needed.
"Gun Control" is nothing more than political speak to get guns out of the hands of people. It works on those who are law abiding, but has no effect those that don't care.
By the way, the Girl Scout in the picture has a modern US Army sniper rifle, 50 cal and yes, it's a bolt action gun, just like the Russian Mosin-Nagant and German Mauser. It's not the gun that needs controlling, it's the people using them.
And yes, my wife was a Girl Scout, she carries a 9mm, too.
