Extraordinary Lethality

Romney wants to ban them.  It’ll make it very interesting to try to shoot clay birds without my 12 gauge.  A shotgun is probably the most lethal firearm you can wield.  I would really like to hear the Governor’s position on this issue.   Can I keep my trap gun?

    You can keep your trap gun, but you will only be able to buy shells loaded with confetti.

    “I signed an assault weapon ban as Massachusetts governor because it provided for a relaxation of licensing requirements for gun owners in Massachusetts, which was a big plus.”

    WTF is he talking about? Does he mean that with fewer “assault weapons” around you wouldn’t have the burden of having to license them and that’s a good thing? I knew he was brainless way back when he dropped that burger on the ground at some county fair and then put it back on the grill with everyone yelling “nooooo!”. What an ass.

    Hell, ANY GUN can be extraordinarily lethal. That’s just chipping away at more guns they wish to control and/or ban.

    Saying you only want to ban guns of extraordinary lethality sounds good to the public. “We’re only going after ‘bad guns’.”

    But I imagine that “their” definition of extraordinary lethality would be something like: “Capable of a sustained rate of fire greater than 10 rounds per minute with a muzzle energy greater than 400 ft/lb.”

    Eliminates virtually all centerfire firearms. But they’ll never define “Extraordinaily Lethal” becasue they don’t want to awake the sleeping giant (95% of gun owners who think that they only after “bad guns”) until it’s too late.
