After all, why would someone repeatedly deny a well-documented fact about AB's rightwing leanings or use the statement of facts to claim that there is any motivation other than a desire to state the facts?
Tom Diaz is quite obviously a dolt."It is one of a variety of assault rifles that militaries of the world developed," Tom Diaz, a policy analyst for the Violence Policy Center, tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross, "when they realized that most soldiers do not, when they're engaged in combat ... take accurate aim, do not fire at long distances, but rather just spray bullets in the general direction of the enemy at short to medium range. ... [S]oldiers are not marksmen, and they tend to just fire in bursts at ambiguous targets and, in fact, most battlefield injuries are the result of just being where the bullet is and not someone actually aiming at you."
first, the rifle was not developed by " militaries of the world".. it was developed by Eugene Stoner in the mid 50's
I can tell you what Marines do in combat.. Diaz gets it wrong....unless he's talking about a machine gunner who is charged with suppressive fire.
if that is htae case, he's wrong.. siple because ARs do not carry m-16 variants.....
and yes, Marines ARE marksman..Diaz is absolutely clueless.
stop listening to people who don't know what they are talking about... it's bad for your brain.
yup... this guy is a dolt...
the value of my life is not up for popular vote.... sorry.That will ultimately be decided by voters.

you seem to want law abiding people to be at a disadvantage when confronted by armed criminals. I suspect it is because anti gun extremists like lots of cases where innocent people are murdered. You use their deaths to try to disarm people like me
