Often we point out how little anti-gunners know about guns. We love to mock Carolyn McCarthy for her “shoulder thing that goes up” statement. The fact is, anti-gunners know little or nothing about guns. Would you let a person who knew nothing about medicine to regulate doctors? Or drugs?
Via Days of Our Trailers, we have this gem of an anti-gun comment on japete’s blog. You know, the blog that’s long on “woe is me” and short on any actual observable facts.
… We register every car on the road, and if you want to have a toy that sends a 150 gram cop killer bullet at 2800 miles per hour, it’s just common sense that we need to register them.
Bear in mind that this is her third comment on a very short comment thread, and the one immediately previous referred to gun owners as “gunloonz.” Apparently she is a follower of (or a sock puppet of) one of the most vile anti-gun trolls on the internet, JadeGold.
Let’s crunch the numbers.
Here’s her mythical “Cop Killer” gun
2800 Miles per hour is 4,107 feet per second
150 grams is 2,315 grains
The bullet from a Vulcan 20mm rotary cannon 1,030 meters per second and 102 grams, or
The bullet from my .243 Winchester rifle
The bullet from my .45 ACP
No wonder we have to register cars. They are incredibly powerful machines. Far more powerful than my puny .45ACP!
