Don't ever challenge Paco-1234, he is the all knowing non shooting expert on all that does not relate to guns, other than he was an expert in the Air Force as a Psychiatrist in charge of Paper Towels and other items relating to flight equipment and sanitary conditions in flight and throughout the base!!
The red flag for me was the hireing of an architect. Why would you hire an architect for a renovation? Apparently the well educated leaders of the WWSD don't know the first thing about construction projects. Grand Central Station was designed and initial construction was overseen by an architect. After it was completed the architect was done. If a renovation included extra bathrooms, sinks or elctrical it was overseen by a civil engineer to ensure the strucural integrity was maintained and the work was completed by contractors, electricians, plumbers, etc.
namvet, you might only be able to smile, but you've got me laughing!!
Civilian models of the M-16, Ak-47, etc. do not have strafe capability and around 20 years ago the selector switch for the M-16 was even changed to three round burst to increase accuracy and ammo conservation in a firefight. The semi-automatic rifles such as the AR-15 have the benefit of a quicker follow-up shot on the animal then say a bolt action. In other words if you are aiming at the heart and the animal moves or you just miss and need a hasty follow-up to prevent the prey from crawling away then you don't want to be working a bolt and trying to re-aquire the target. Semi- autos correct that deficency and ultimately may show more mercy then having a gut shot animal suffer a prolonged death.
It was drilled into you to respect other peoples property? So what is your profound delusional interest in my weapons or what type of rifle I prefer to take to the range. Or for that matter what type of paper target I prefer to use? When you say an assault rifle is not a target precision weapon are you saying that the AR-15 is not accurate. Most Ar style sights are accurate to within .97th of an inch at 200 yards and the heft as you call it is around 8.5lbs fully loaded. By the way the military designates the M-16, the military version of the AR-15 as a point of aim, point of impact weapon meaning if you put it on a secure bench it will fire one round on top of the other unless outside influences are involved such as wind.
I read somewhere that all the kids had transferred to another school for the rest of the year.
Every officer I ever knew that started out enlisted counted the Good Conduct Medal as their favorite, because officers can't earn it. All I did Paco was state that the MSM was pretty much given out for exactly what it was, the Meritorious SERVICE Medal. You are the one jumping onto some sort of race card game. I didn't know you were Puerto Rican, nor does that matter to me.
There was one F-16, one F-18 and two predator drones lost to combat by the U.S. in Bosnia or as Paco calls it Basnia. The F-18 was lost over the Adriatic and the pilot was killed. The F-16 pilot was Capt. Scott O'Grady and he was rescued by a USMC CH-53E Super Stallion Helicopter assigned to the USS Kearsage parented by HMH-466 Wolfpack. it sustained minor damage to enemy fire. So I'm guessing there wasn't a whole lot of pilots needing fixing. The Meritorious Service Medal is impressive in that it is awarded to just about everyone that achieves the rank of LtCol. in the Air Force.
"Technology weapons"? What technology? Elevation and windage knobs? The invention of the front sight post? Smokeless powder? The root cause of these incidents is consistantly mental illness with a history of contacts with mental health professionals that were negligent in treatment. Here is a thought for you Paco. Make Mental Health Professionals culpable for their lack of treatment. Contracting with the mentally ill that they won't harm themselves or others is not worth the paper it is printed on, but twenty seven counts of wrongful death against the providers that would not commit Lanza would be a good start to finally putting some responsibility into the field of mental health. Mike Davis had to accept responsibility for his actions every day on the job and I'm sure dealt with the mentally ill and the road blocks put up by the supposed mental health professionals. His car and house were on the line every day and mental health providers should be too.
