well it doesn't help when General McChrystal goes out with a statement about how high power the .223 round is and how much destruction they wreak on a human body. Disinformation from even the highest echelons will be very difficult to counter with our low-information voters.

For some reason it does not seem to bother Homeland Security who is acquiring weapons that fire this round and the shells themselves by the millions.

Wonder who they are planning on using them against?

I'll take "the American People for 1000 Alex".

I don't need to tell you this, but for the uninformed, NOT by design. My questions would be: "What kind of projectiles are you using General" and "how are you loading these rounds"?? Factory FMJ rounds are not that destructive compared to, say, the hollow-point order recently bought by the Executive Branch. Then there's the issue of rifling, which make the AR platform more accurate, but less destructive than military M-16 rounds that are designed to tumble and cause maximum damage. They don't tell you about that little fact either when describing ARs as "military-style assault rifle", which is true only in appearance.

toss in our supposedly conservative buddy, Colin Powell basically saying the same thing. These guys, for some reason, don't seem to have all that much knowledge about firearms, despite being career military men. What is the difference between an AR15 and a Mini14, other than looks? Yet FineSwine wants to ban the AR15 but not the Mini14. She's an idiot. If McChrystal and Powell go along with her, with respect to this particular topic, they are idiots too. I respect their military service, but not their information on semi auto firearms. With regards to the latter, they are wrong headed about it.

Senator Ted Cruz wonders: If gun control works, why are the cities with the most gun control so violent? Watch and learn.
