Wow. I'm all for gun rights. But a bullet designed to kill people, I think, is a bit too much.Josh
If you don't intend to kill bad people that enter your house, what good does having a gun provide?
If a "son of Hussein" was to break in...Remember in medieval times, you were not to pull out your weapon unless for training or for killing.And if you dont kill, you are facing a gigantic lawsuit...Just mainly, only shoot or stab the FRONT of the assailant.If he turn his back, let him go!
"But a bullet designed to kill people, I think, is a bit too much."Yeah, why can't we just have boxing glove arrows, like The Green Arrow had? Just draw it from your quiver, draw back your bowstring, and let the rapist/home invader/psycho have a haymaker to the jaw! Ann Hedonia & Sam Paku
Don't worry Josh, I got your humor. And I laughed.
Yeah, we got it too. But, on a more serious note, not all rounds are actually designed to "kill". The 5.56/.223, for example, was designed more to wound, and thus cause more battlefield personnel to be taken out of action. But any time you shoot a criminal the intent should be to stop, not necessarily to kill. If the scumbag happens to die, that's just an unfortunate side effect; Boo Hoo.Ann Hedonia & Sam PakuAnn Hedonia & Sam Paku
So Chuck, make your point...
"The 5.56/.223, for example, was designed more to wound, and thus cause more battlefield personnel to be taken out of action."Propaganda, pure and simple. This was the party line given by the military AFTER it was discovered that a .22 bullet is an inadequate combat "stopper." Then, to save face, the .mil made it sound like "wounding" was the intention all along. It wasn't. The 5.56mm was picked for two reasons: it weighed less than a .30-cal cartridge, and therefore the soldiers could carry more ammo; and the recoil was less, so (it was assumed) the soldiers would shoot more accurately. Adopting the stupid 5.56mm was a terrible mistake, and it STILL hasn't been changed because too much face would be lost. So our kids have to use a substandard caliber, for no good reason.
