    Moderator's Warning:
    Nevada IHOP shooter was 'gentle, kind man' Enough with the personal crap, and the hyperpartisan crap. If you want to discuss the issues surrounding this event in a reasonably civil manner, fine. If you're going to go full retard or sling ad-homs or engage in personal duels, I advise you to do it elsewhere... or Goshin's Silver Hammer will come down on someone's head.

    Unless something has changed, most "full auto" one sees in the hands of civilians aren't military select fire weapons but modified closed bolt types, most of which are pull-the-trigger-once-and-the-weapon-fires-until-empty. Pretty useless actually.

    I don't know if it was full auto or not; early reports suggested it was, but I haven't seen confirmation.

    Most people don't shoot full auto weapons very well at all. Instead of using short controllable bursts they try to spray like a garden hose and end up wasting lots of ammo on air and inanimate objects. Unless he was far more skilled than I would expect, I don't think full auto vs semi-auto would make a lot of difference in how many were killed. Now, if we were talking about a firing into a massive and densely packed crowd, like the crowds trying to enter a stadium or auditorium for a big game or concert, that might be different.

    Otherwise, where most thugs are the shooter, full auto = full retard = lots of missed shots.

    All I know is there are 4 grieving families that my heart goes out to, I'm not sure if it's the media and we hear about them more, or if it's happening more. But in either case, it's just sad that that innocent people should be put through the pain, agony and grieving of such senseless killings.

    No, but it's the conservatives who generally wear it on their sleeves (or bumpers), and obsess about chit like lapel pins or the size of the flag on the President's plane.

    true

    full auto-to suppress the movement of your enemy or to allow you to move

    semi auto-to inflict casualties

    I'm much more afraid of a man who knows how to AIM, than one who sprays bullets everywhere.

    I think you have seen the discussion of a demonstration i did years ago with a 9MM subgun but with 10 BEGLIAN 8 (IPSC Targets) at 20 yards try as a might I could not "kill" all ten with a full auto spray of 32 bullets (the gun had no three round burst position) no matter how careful I was but I could do center of mass semi auto in less than three seconds and head shots in about 4 and still had 22 rounds left
