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.
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
3,379 Feet Per Second and 1,574 grains
3,000 feet per second and 105 grains
850 feet per second and 230 grains
Perhaps this chart can put it into perspective for you.
The chart on the left shows the velocities and bullet weights of the different guns. The chart on the right is the muzzle energy of each gun in foot pounds.
I’ll make you a deal, honey. If I ever get a gun that shoots a 150 gram bullet at 2,800 Miles Per Hour and has nearly 87,000 Foot Pounds of muzzle energy, I’ll register it. Until then, leave the gun regulations to people who know what the hell they are talking about.
UPDATE: In comments, Joat suggests that we compare this mythical “cop killer” gun to an automobile. Let us imagine that japete drives a Prius. I am sure that the thought of her driving an eco-hairshirt doesn’t tax anyone’s imagination. Now let us imagine that she drives it down the road at 60 MPH.
No wonder we have to register cars. They are incredibly powerful machines. Far more powerful than my puny .45ACP!
