Goddamn hippie.

Stanley McChrystal, a former four star general and commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, stated on “Morning Joe” recently that he doesn’t think the firearms used on the battlefields of Afghanistan are really appropriate for, say, shooting at rabbits out in Iowa or scaring off crackhead burglars:

I spent a career carrying typically either an M16, and later an M4 carbine. And an M4 carbine fires a .223 caliber round, which is 5.56 millimeters, at about 3,000 feet per second. When it hits a human body, the effects are devastating. It’s designed to do that. And that’s what our soldiers ought to carry… [but] I personally don’t think there’s any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets and particularly around the schools in America.

The raging flower child even went so far as to suggest that the Second Amendment does not grant people the right to own whatever firearms they please no matter how lethal: 

Seriously, I understand everybody’s desire to have whatever they want, but we’ve got to protect our children, we’ve got to protect our police, we’ve got to protect our population. And I think we have to take a very mature look at that.

McChrystal, whom we presume is a practicing vegan and hot yoga enthusiast, also claimed that aggressive legislative action is necessary to curtail gun violence:

I think serious action is necessary. Sometimes we talk about very limited actions on the edges, and I just don’t think that’s enough … I think we have to look at legislation. The number of people in America killed by firearms is extraordinary compared to other nations. And I don’t think we’re a bloodthirsty culture, and so I think we need to look at everything we can do to safeguard our people.

Which is exactly what you’d expect a goddamn hippie like McChrystal to say.

    This is exactly what it's going to take to get this job done. The only thing republicans don't spit on is a bonafide macho high ranking military man.

    But that's factually incorrect. It's a shame that a 4-star general forgot most of his firearms ballistics training or simply chose to ignore it to advance his personal political wishes on false pretenses.

    The .223 is one of the weakest "rifle" rounds in existence. It's prohibited in hunting for larger game in most states because it's too underpowered: therefore cruel. These "assault weapons" don't blow animals up, contrary to colloquial jokes. They just simply can't kill effectively.

    On the human body the fact that it goes so fast causes clean wounds. Exit wounds are just slightly larger than exit wounds. Compare this to any other pistol round, which has significant wound vectors to human flesh.

    If you have to choose to be shot by any bullet, pick the .223 Remington. It's the easiest bullet wounds that EMT's can deal with and unlike the .22LR there is little chance of the bullet getting stuck int he body. Not to mention it is statistically the least deadly common round in existence.

    If you have to worry about guns, focus on pistols. Rifles kill less Americans annually than fists do: even less than that are so called "assault weapons" which seems to have a different definition every week.

      I agree that handguns are a much bigger problem, but i'm not sure i understand your point about the .223. Why would our Army choose to use something that was ineffective?

      "Exit wounds are just slightly larger than exit wounds?" Really? What does it do, make a U-ie?

  3. Geez, it's always such a shocker when policemen or military men vocally support the idea that only policemen or military men should have guns.

    I saw a movie about that reality once. It was called Shindler's List.
