Fellow Bostonians: How many of us wished we had an assault weapon last night?

That is incorrect. You cannot provide any motivation for outlawing pistol grips on semi-auto rifles other than the enjoyment that progressives get from violating people's civil liberties.

Go ahead and defend the irrational idea that pistol grips turn a semiautomatic rifle into something more than a semiautomatic rifle.

LOL it made the task of keeping the rifle under control when you are firing in rapid mode far far easier and you do not fired normally hunting rifles in rapid mode unless your target is other humans.

You would not wish the majority of your rounds to go over the heads of running kids for example.......

This isn't about weapons designed for mass murder. This is about ordinary hunting rifles that merely have a pistol grip attached to them.


An there is only repeat only one purpose of having a pistol grip on a rifle and that purpose is to keep it from climbing when you are firing it in rapid mode.

Not all that useful except in the killing of large number of humans.

@BillRM,
You run right for the extreme scenario. First of all, you make the assumption that a shooter always shoots as fast as they can pull the trigger. The truth is that if someone is committing a multiple murder, they shoot someone and then turn the gun on their next victim. You just made up some bullshit here, trying to make the case that without a pistol grip, a shooter would miss every target after the first shot.

We're talking about semi-auto-only rifles here. There is no rapid fire mode.

Even if it is true that pistol grips help to control full-auto fire (a point that I am neither agreeing nor disagreeing with, for the record), that has nothing whatsoever to do with the semi-auto-only guns that we are talking about here.

Besides, I can think of a different reason for having a pistol grip on a rifle. It allows the gun to be used with an adjustable stock. So even if your stated reason is one reason (again, a point that I am nether agreeing nor disagreeing with), it certainly isn't the only reason.

@BillRM,
Bill, there is another purpose for a pistol grip, that goes along with a small, lighter weapon (plastic and smaller ammo, yet still designed to have human killing power) and that is the ability to accurately put out a field of fire without aiming while evading or chasing a target - and that isn't an animal you.

You want true accuracy to hit an animal you eat; ie, heart/lung shot. You don't want a bullet either that massively tears up the flesh and shatters bone with hunks of meat torn away.

Not everyone hunts to eat. Varmint guns are designed for eliminating small troublesome animals that aren't good to eat.

A bit off topic, but the Hague Conventions actually forbid soldiers from using bullets that cause this sort of massive damage.

Even troublesome critters can be enjoyed if disease-free and properly prepared. In the 1983 film, Never Cry Wolf, based on the book of the same name, by Farley Mowat, the Mowat character (portrayed by Charles Martin Smith), takes to eating the mice. Mice are not usually considered dinner fare by humans.

Progressives are pretty good at denying reality. But there is a reason why you do not post any alternate motivation for outlawing pistol grips on semi-auto rifles.

And that reason is: There is no other motivation.

The only motivation that progressives have for outlawing pistol grips on semi-auto rifles is the joy that progressives get from violating people's civil liberties.

Your lies and name-calling are also ample evidence of your inability to defend your position using facts or logic.

Nonsense as any repeat any firearm will try to climb when fire in a rapid manner it does not need to be fully auto.

My military colt 45 was a pain to control when rapidly fired and it is not fully auto.

You're forgetting the fact that without full-auto, a gun is not capable of rapid firing.

Believe it or not my cat was afraid of mice. When a mouse presented itself my wife jumped on a chair and the cat jumped on my wife's shoulder.

@Glennn,
Sorry most mass murderers have not been firearms experts an blasting away at running children an adults is their normal mode of operation.

Hell death totals would be must higher if those killers have their guns under better control.

IE the old spray and pray with the result of a lot of holes in walls and ceiling that are above their targets heights

So there is nothing gain by having pistols grips on rifles to aid those killers doing a better jobs of killing innocents.
