Salon wants to ban bolt-action rifles

Holy guacamole!
Who the [heck] needs to hit something, anything, from over a mile away? I’ll tell you who: an Army or Marine sniper, that’s who. They’re selling military-grade rifles to the general public. That’s what this sniper rifle is, and that’s what all the various iterations of the AR-15 style assault rifles are. Military-grade killing machines.

All of them are for sale on the open market here in the United States of America. You can go down to your local gun store and buy one tomorrow. That means you’ll be able to set the damn Scorpion (sic) up on its bi-pod and hit a so-called “soft target” so far away you need a %$>6%& telescope to see it.

The first 10 amendments to the Constitution is the Bill of Rights, not the Bill of Needs. I can have a rifle that can hit a target a mile away because I want it. As a free, responsible, law-abiding citizen, that’s all the reason I need.

He is invited to watch me shooting. I can take him to 1000 yards competition shooting on the move, Run and Gun.
Maybe he would get excited about shooting some steel.

The author graduated West Point, but appears he was involved in left wing activities from the beginning. He is a disgrace to his great-great-great-great-grandfather Thomas Jefferson. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucian_K._Truscott_IV
he resigned his commission about thirteen months after graduating, receiving a "general discharge under other than honorable conditions”
The left’s true intentions of total disarmament are being stated more openly every day.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

The problem arises when they decide to force their utopian views on the rest of us! When they send armed people out to take the guns from other armed people....what could go wrong?

Every 4 years, the International Olympics Committee holds a summer celebration of athletics. In the "field" part of the "track & field" competitions, young men and women come from all over the world to throw a javelin to see who can throw one the furthest.

Nobody actually needs a javelin - which has been an absolutely brutal weapon of war for 5000-6000 years now. And NOBODY needs to be able to throw one more than a a couple of feet. Certainly, the IOC should treat javelins the exact same way it has treated firearms competitions in Olympics past, by totally emasculating the sport.

Who the heck needs to hit something, anything, with a sharpened stick from up to 98.48 meters away (the current world's record)? I’ll tell you who: a Spartan Hoplite or a Samurai, that’s who. They’re selling military-grade javelins to the general public. That’s what the javelin is, and that’s what all the various iterations of javelins are. Military-grade killing machines.

All of them are for sale on the open market here in the United States of America. You can go down to your local Academy sporting goods store and buy one tomorrow. That means you’ll be able to set the darn thing up on your shoulder and hit a so-called “soft target” so far away you can't easily tell what color their eyes are.

In my neck of the woods, a "Salon" is a place where women go to get their hair cut. I guess I'll have to admit that I am ignorant (uneducated) on what or who "Salon" is in current day culture. I won't say "modern" day culture, because the word modern tends to mean better and more advanced. But much of our culture now days is not more advanced, just more inane and ignorant.
Do what you say you're gonna do.

Someone needs to show him a list of Wimbledon Cup winners so that he gets it. With regard to precision, the military strives to reach civilian grade (and benefits greatly from the cooperation of a huge network of active duty, veterans, and civilians).

That dunce has no concept of what military grade means, which is impressive since the arena that he is commenting on operates under a unique civilian military partnership that has persisted since the Revolutionary War despite tectonic changes in military procurement. The most famous American sniper of all time used a weapon that the USMC did not officially field wearing a civilian target barrel (most of those M70s were rebarreled with Douglas target barrels).
