New Study Tries Making a Case Against Large Caliber Guns
Leftists know zilch about the boomsticks. As if the error-filled diatribes about 30-magazine AR-47 black rifles with the heat-seeking missiles weren't indication enough. Being the usual "guns are bad, m'kay" arguments haven't been working, lefties are having to make up new gripes. Which brings us to this.
There's a new "bombshell" study going around that proves larger caliber rounds are more powerful than smaller caliber rounds. I kid you not.
Analyzing data on hundreds of shootings in Boston from 2010 to 2014, Anthony Braga of Northeastern University and Philip J. Cook of Duke University found that on a bullet-per-bullet basis, shootings committed with a large-caliber firearm are much more likely to result in a fatality than those with a smaller-caliber gun. Caliber is a measure of the diameter of the bullets fired by a particular gun.
They found stark differences in shooting outcomes depending on the caliber of gun used. They divided the calibers of guns used in the shootings into three categories: small, which included .22-, .25- and .32-caliber handguns; medium, including .380s, .38s and 9mms; and large, including .40s, .44 magnums, .45s, 10mms and 7.62 x 39s.
So, let me get this straight. Bigger bullets are better than smaller ones. A .44-magnum is deadlier than a .22lr. Bravo, guys. You're really onto something!
Here we have yet another angle from which the left is trying to take our gats. "I mean, does anyone really need anything bigger than a .22? God forbid firearms do the thing for which they were intended."
On the bright side, I guess this means the left is no longer interested in our puny .22-caliber ARs.
The left continues to prove to us their duncery knows no bounds. You would think such a "shocking revelation" would be common sense. That leftists would at least know something about the things they're trying to ban.
Next, there'll be a bombshell revelation about firearm magazines being reusable as opposed to single-use. Supersonic rounds being faster than subsonic. Hey, at least they're learning.
Speaking of common sense:
