And they wonder…

…why they have no credibility:

When describing the situation along the Mexican border, (Attorney General Greg) Abbott drew an exaggerated picture of a frontier overrun with drug cartels where ranchers regularly have to confront gangsters with deadly force.

Exaggerated picture? Yeah. Go tell that to the families of David Hartley and Rob Krentz. I’m sure that’ll be quite the consolation to them.

    If it is an exaggerated picture; why has the federal government put up warning signs along the border saying drug cartels control vast areas?

    Going on a tangent – you know what burns me?

    That shithead Piers Morgan got to shoot a Browning M2.

    Putting aside the DO WANT factor here…anybody else ever wonder why the first response in trying to convert an anti is to put them behind a gun that, honestly, is beyond the means of most of the American public?

    No doubt it’s cool to shoot one. Just seems to me that if you want to teach somebody about shooting, you don’t start with a comparative outlier. On top of that…most people’s first impression of something is the one they keep. You take a novice shooter to the range and hand them a full auto, seems to me you’re just reinforcing their ideas about the easy availability of military-grade hardware.

    But I haven’t had breakfast yet, so maybe I’m not thinking straight.

    AeroDillo,

    If you were going to show someone the fun of shooting; wouldn’t you want to show them a gun with a happy switch?

    Nothing puts the slow rate of semi-auto fire in perspective as burning through belts or mags in full auto.

    They weren’t trying to teach Morgan how to shoot, he doesn’t want to know. They were trying to demonstrate the differences in select fire and semi.

    Could be. But I fear that kind of awesome is wasted on an idiot like Morgan.
