Dumbass Tweet O’Day


When ignorance is bountiful, it usually comes from celebrities.

If you read his timeline on this subject, it’s nothing more than blathering all sorts of non-sequitur’s and deflections in his attempt to explain why people should not own AR-15’s.

Yes, an AR-15 is dangerous just like any firearm, even bows and arrows.  And for the evil person attempting to do harm to me or my family, I prefer the effectiveness of an AR-15 and have no issue if the bullets rattle around the perp’s insides and leave large exit wounds.  To me, that means the product is working correctly.

  1. The .223 Remington/5.56 NATO cartridges are not powerful enough to be legal for deer hunting in Maryland, so the AR-15 I use is chambered for the 7.62 x 39 mm Russian round. It’s roughly as powerful as the good old .30/30 Winchester. BTW, that’s the only AR-15 pattern rifle I own. I bought it when I was shopping for a .30/30 for hunting in the woods. The dealer offered me a Colt Sporter for a few bucks less than a Marlin 336.

    I prefer a shotgun for home defense.

    • Further, the “tumbling round” thing is a myth. The 5.56 NATO round is designed precisely not to tumble, but rather to go through and through as directly as possible and to leave as small an exit wound as possible. It’s supposed to be humane, to wound rather than kill to the greatest extent practicable. That’s why the round is considered inhumane for deer-hunting, because a wounded deer will suffer far longer than if killed outright.

  2. The original AR-15/M-16 round from the early sixties used a different powder and a twist rate in the barrel than the current rifles of either type. This changed the velocity and stability of the bully when the early bullet would hit a person it would tumble. But is was NOT specifically designed to tumble.

    • The prototypes used a 1 in 14″ twist rate that was problematic. It was soon changed to 1 in 12″ for that reason. With the switch to the M855SS109 bullet in the ’90’s, the service started issuing 1 in 9″ twist barrels. For the use of even heavier bullets, the bulk of civilian AR pattern rifles are manufactured with 1 in 9″, 1 in 8″ or even 1 in 7″ twist barrels. These over stabilize the bullet.
