Which one's better?
Didn't Veitnam war kinda proved that AK47 is generally better than M16?

How visible your firing position becomes when firing due to muzzle flash and other effects
Why did we even switch away from the M14?
Hmm, does AK have more muzzle flash or anything?

>Because this is saying 54% of homicide defendants have at least one felony conviction
only in large cities.

large cities only provided 42% of the counted murders.

58% of murders weren't counted in that study.

so of the total number of murders being discussed, 42% were examined for that study, and 53% had felony convictions.

this is equal to ~22% of all murders counted.
Yeah all that crap those old guys said was so stupid. Why do we still listen to some 200 year old paper they wrote lol
So you're assuming that everyone outside of large cities are just shooting their cheating wives, people who piss them off while driving, and school shootings.

Or, more likely, you're trolling.

10/10 you got me.
no, I'm assuming most gang violence happens in urban areas, and that's why they chose to ONLY REPORT NUMBERS FROM URBAN AREAS in a study talking about felon on felon violence.

the study agrees in the first paragraph that only about 25% of murders are by felons.

so if 25% of murders are by felons, and 22% of murders total are by felons in cities, the remaining number of murders by felons would be about 3% and would happen outside cities.
>more likely, you're trolling.
I can do third grade math, I must be a troll....
>I can't read, I must be a troll...

The 25% was a conservative estimate from a different study that is then shown by the other sources further on, that I already posted, to be too low. And that's just for felony convictions, not for criminal records.

>inb4 civil offenses posted again to say that jay walkers and people running stop signs are counted as "criminals"

You're like one of those people that gets stuck on the "A well regulated militia" prefatory clause and doesn't go on to read the rest of the sentence.

He quit doing videos anon, didn't you hear?
I guess his MS progressed to the stage where he couldn't continue YouTube.

It was the end of March, I remember because I was hoping that on April 1st he would could out and announce it as an early April fools joke.
I guess I was the fool afterall for hoping it was a joke.

I even messaged his facebook page and asked him if we could at least get an album, but he said he's "doing other work now"
>is that a FAMAS
hes cut all production. never said why, but most likely his ms is getting pretty bad.
He just can't shoot anymore, he can still be silly! Still from what I hear on instagram, he's pretty depressed atm.

So i was wondering, would the last year of WWII be radically different, if both Germans and Allies would have deployed jet fighters to the European skies in sufficent numbers?
presumably the germans would have continued to lose the supply and production side of the war.
No.They wouldn't have been able to field enough numbers for them to make a difference.

>>25505577 & >>25505579 have the gist of it.

And on top of that, even if we disregard the problems with early jet engines, actually downing something in those early jet fighters was pretty hard to accomplish since they started to get too fast to line up their shots properly.
>ITT: Wheraboos keep trying to win an unwinnable war.
Germany would have to suddenly deploy such a staggeringly large number of jets to make any difference that even piston engined fighters in the same number would a formidable force. The war was long since lost by that stage and all that remained to be determined was how europe would be sliced up afterwards. The only wander weapon that could have saved Germany by then would be nukes, the ability to mass produce them, and deliver them to targets at medium-long range.

If Germany has functional jets in 1939 then there is the time for them to develop effective fighter doctrines using them, and to go further and actually have a powerful long-range heavy bomber. In that situation they have an even greater chance to bomb Britain and Russia's industry to shit in much the same way their own did, as well as wining the Battle of Britain if it even ever happens. This of course assumes Hitler doesn't shit on the project because he personally prefers something else.

Evasion is always the best choice. I would immediately leave the scene, call the police, and wait for them to assure that my house is safe before I return.

There is very little, if anything of value you could get by going into your house to confront the perpetrators. In that respect, evasion isn't an argument of the perpetrator's life being more valuable than your posessions; it's an argument of YOUR OWN life being more valuable. By walking into the scene of the crime, you could be ambushed. There are at least two people on your property who shouldn't be there, but there could possibly be more. If you take the risk of confronting Tyrone and his home dawg, then you're walking into a trap where witnesses probably can't see you and come to your aid.

Hi k, im writing a rather extensive research paper on why gun control is bullshit. (I know that there are already 50,000 of them but i needed a topic that the research would not bore me to death).

I thought that i would share a couple gems that i found through my research. Good contributions would also be appreciated. I will read interesting news articles but would have to have credible .gov or .edu sites (can you say oxymoron?) to include the sources in my paper.

The idea is to be able to have it, not mandate that to have X you must be militia. It's that there can be a militia because the people can keep and bear arms. If you are not armed you are not well regulated as a militiaman. "the security of a free state" is protected by the people being armed and able to take up arms as militia. The people being able to fight back is supposed to help stop the state from falling to tyranny as well as help protect against foreign invasion.

Being well regulated does not mean having government cock up your ass.

You mean like cannons? Because those were arms. A man could own a literal ship load and beyond of the damn things. You could load'em with all sorts of shit. What of the Puckle Gun or the Girandoni Air Rifle? Volley guns?

There's a reason it says "arms", not "muskets". The men who wrote it were smart enough to understand that we wouldn't always be using what they did, they left it open for that advancement. A militia armed entirely with muskets would be hilariously useless today for anything but cannon fodder.

I don't know why you jackasses always jump straight to nukes, it makes you look silly. Do you honestly think Joe Blow would be able to afford one even if he for sure could legally own one?

Just read the damn amendment as ratified. It's clear as day to anyone who actually took the time to learn about and understand what it says.

it has a bullet button on it, and its missing a barrel

as a guy from ger with no gun experience whatsoever I would like an opinion from you enthusiasts...
the g36 is said to be 50-60cm off at 100meters with a hot barrel - for example in a prolonged firefight or after some rapidly fired clips

my questions is:
isnt that the case for every comparable rifle (AR-15s, AK-YXs)?
since temperature influences every material and it doesnt seem like a good idea to "finetune" a rifle barrel to have perfect accuracy at 80-100°C (or however warm it gets in average conditions and prolonged fire fights) because this would mean the first shot accuracy in arctic conditions would be bad - if the bullet doesnt get stuck in the barrel...(?)

and what are good alternatives or the standard rifle with the least drawbacks?

that might be true, but a 372 page long survey has been released recently, confirming the problems. and the institutions involved were for example the "Wehrwissenschaftliche Institut für Werks- und Betriebsstoffe" and the "Ernst-Mach-Institut der Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft"
so HK has to present something drastic to discredit that assessment and regain some credibility
sounds easy enough... but as someone already mentioned (and a little google search for matching topics seems to confirm), the most logical step would be to switch to the G38 / Hk416. apparently the KSK is satisfied with the perfomance

Hey that's smart. Now plenty of people know where they are if you ever forget where you left them. Just ask whoever decides to invade. I'm sure they'll be happy to help you find your tanks.

"Wehrwissenschaftliche Institut für Werks- und Betriebsstoffe" belongs to the Bundeswehr/Ministry of Defense and gave the G36 the green light in the 90s.

That's my point - you're part of the generation that will take us forward to broad sunlit uplands anon.
No man, you definitely bring up a good point. And as one of the young adults (23) getting his first guns. My parents are a little weirded out about the whole thing constantly saying "please don't become a gun nut".

My grandfather was actually a politician (independent) from Tasmania at the time. And pushed really hard with the Howard gov for these new rules which are now being eased off.

I'm really happy to see the culture of guns on the rise because I love it. I do however agree that things like that Port Arthur should really be forgotten just like Hoddle St and Queen St like you mentioned.

At the end of the day I honestly think that where we are at now with what we need to do to acquire guns is OK, I'm happy with filling out forms to get the guns I want/need.. I mean dont get me wrong,. I look at some of the AR threads and AK threads and really get a little moist but for now I'm happy owning long range rifles.
Maybe by the time I'm mum's age, I can have an L1A1 like she used in the reserves when she met my dad.
