Sorry, these sounded like attempts at lectures to me.

And I'd argue that it's the "weapon of choice" for mass shooters... it's the "flavor of the month", and as I said earlier I think it has more to do with seeing them used as the primary weapons in movies and video games than it actually does with any tactical knowledge on the part of the assailants.

That first quote is me simply stating a fact.  The second quote is what my friend said.  I'm learning here.  Keep it coming.

in a warzone youre correct, in a "gun free zone" where you can take pot shots at will ANY gun is going to cause massive amounts of damage.

your original post asserted that this proves nobody needs assault rifles, so we could ban them.

What are you going to do when the same ppl who desire to kill mass amounts of ppl start using shot guns and pistols?

youre not addressing the problem only the big scary guns and like its already been said the only reason they are being targeted is b/c they are scary looking.

plenty of rifles have the same attributes as an AR15 yet arent considered assault rifles. Shot guns come in semi automatic and even come with drum style magazines as well.

you should really try educating yourself on a subject with an objective stance before forming a misinformed opinion.

I don't have a firm stance on the issue, and I am attempting to hear all sides.  Honestly, if it were up to me, I would do away with all guns.  I have no fear that the government is coming to get me, and if they were, a few rifles and handguns wouldn't do shit.  That said, I understand that this country has a gun culture.  People like to hunt, collect guns, practice target shooting, etc.  Getting rid of all guns is never going to happen.  However, I never want to see little kids getting gunned down by mentally ill assholes that get their hands on guns.  So, I do support gun regulation, background checks and strict enforcement of current gun laws.  If it prevents just one school shooting, it's well worth it...

I was a US Marine. We use rifles over handguns because they are A. More accurate in trained hands and have a much larger effective range and B. More effective against targets that may potentially have body armor. Neither of those are a factor in the shootings that have gone on.

For what he was doing, point blank unarmed civilians, a shotgun would have been much more devastating, and the pistols are much more easily concealable, can carry 2/3 as much ammunition in a single magazine, and are just as deadly (at that range)

FYI, teams that are primarily engaged in CQB (close quarter combat, I.E. small room clearing) use extremely short M4 Carbine variants (the SEALs variant is called the Mk18 CQBR). It's illegal for a civilian to own a short barreled rifle without jumping through hoops.

And I don't know about your friend, but most Infantryman aren't issued sidearms.

My question is, why in one post, you say that you don't know shit about firearms, but then proceed to attempt to lecture like you know what the fuck you're talking about?

who's lecturing Huh We're having a discussion.  Calm down tiger...you're not that important Smiley

Because he's a dumbass kid that had next to no idea what he was doing.

The shotgun would have easily been the most devastating weapon at the range he was shooting at.


Well he's not the only mass shooter who's chosen that rifle.  It's the weapon of choice.  And, I've not seen any evidence that a handgun would be more efficient in killing the maximum number of people.  I have a friend who served in Afghanistan.  He said there is a reason all our guys in Afghanistan and Iraq clear buildings with their rifles, not their sidearms.  Because sidearms are a LOUSY substitue for rifles.

See your earlier post, and then see your highlighted post. I would not agree.  An AR-15 is a bit cumbersome to deal with if you are just walking into a building and start shooting at people.  It is not for close range, and takes a bit of aim to shoot with one of those things.  What I mean is, a hand gun is lift one arm, point and shoot.  A long rifle, is lift with one arm, steady with the other, then shoot.  A shotgun, is just get close and shoot.  I would say a shot gun would be the best to use for that type of situation, not that you ever would, but when you have people running and screaming, you'd probably want to use what required the least amount of thinking.

I'll say it again.  I don't know shit about guns, so I am learning.  Didn't the Sandy Hook shooter have multiple weapons including a Bushmaster with a 30 round magazine, Glock 10mm handgun, Sig-Sauer 9mm handgun and a Izhmash Canta 12 gauge Shotgun (seized from car in parking lot)?  Why would he choose the less effective Bushmaster when doing the shooting, when he had all the other weapons to chose from?

Didn't he break Noguiera's arm? Yes, yes he did  Grin I also remember when he raped Getbig's own Kongo.  I still say that fight between Mir and JDS was fishy. Some of Mir's knockdowns didn't look right.  Mir is my favorite fighter, but I wouldnt put it past him to be a UFC loyalist. (throw fights if asked.)

I agree.  That was an odd fight.  I think Frank went into it thinking he couldn't win.  It was a half ass performance.

this thread is gold.  It has everything.
83  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Mother stops 3 Burglars w Pistol on: January 30, 2013, 02:16:50 PM
And that is what is used in all the video games, war coverage, movies, etc. 

If Shotguns were fancied - that is what these psychoes would use

That's one theory.  Another, is that you can kill more people with an AR15, that you would be able to with a shotgun, handgun, etc.  Wouldn't you agree?

I like Congo, but he's getting KTFO
85  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kongo vs. Roy Nelson on: January 30, 2013, 10:25:54 AM
I agree

How dare you.
86  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Mother stops 3 Burglars w Pistol on: January 30, 2013, 10:23:59 AM
I see you keep narrowing it down until you get the answer you're looking for. Recently it has been AR-15 style weapons. Happy now?

I don't know shit about guns so I'm just learning here. Why is it that the AR15 is the weapon of choice for these lunatics?
87  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: A fear of guns is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity on: January 30, 2013, 10:22:00 AM
Yet you probably call the murder of the unborn a matter of a "woman's right to choose."  Roll Eyes

How can you murder someone who's not born yet?
88  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Mother stops 3 Burglars w Pistol on: January 29, 2013, 06:44:06 PM
Oh, you mean the things that you are more likely to be struck by lightning than be a victim of? Probably explosives.

So, explosives are the most common mass murder weapon in the US?  Really?
89  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kongo vs. Roy Nelson on: January 29, 2013, 06:43:26 PM
fyi hes not a "high level athlete" just a thug who fights

does take balls to do that however

At the risk of disagreeing with you and having you fly off the handle, I will say that anyone who can make it to the upper levels of MMA, and in Quinton's case win belts in two orgs, is a high level athlete.

There is a reason the large majority of firearm related deaths come from handguns.


What type of weapon is most commonly used in mass murders?
91  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Mother stops 3 Burglars w Pistol on: January 29, 2013, 05:41:46 PM
Most handguns are semi auto

yes, but with small clips and background checks, they are not nearly as devastating as an AK47 or an Bushmaster right?
92  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Rampage Vs Glover on: January 29, 2013, 05:40:36 PM
Cormier is fucked if he beats Mir.  Everyone that has beaten Mir, went on to lose their next fight.  It's called the Frank Mir curse, and it's no joke.

The only exception was Lesnar.  When Lesnar fought Carwin, they were both coming off wins over Mir.  So, one of them would end up breaking the Mir curse.  As fate would have it, Lesnar got the living shit beat out of him in the 1st round and won by miracle submission in the second.  So, you could say that both lost.  

The latest victim of the Mir curse is JDS.  After fucking Mir up, he got demolished by Brown Pride Velaques. Cormier is next...

93  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kongo vs. Roy Nelson on: January 29, 2013, 05:35:58 PM
 He smokes both

lol.  A high level athlete competing in a sport where he can literally get killed and he's smoking cigarets?  Pathetic...
94  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kongo vs. Roy Nelson on: January 29, 2013, 05:35:03 PM
Overall, I think the UFC has been pretty fair to their fighters. They took a huge risk with a large investment in the beginning. The shows and PPV aren't cheap to put on.

Without a doubt, the UFC has done more for fighters than all other MMA organizations combined.  Because of the UFC, MMA is a much bigger sport, with more opportunities and a lot more money for the fighters.  They do a good job of taking care of fighters with bonuses, health care, etc.

That said, because they have a virtual monopoly, and because Dana is such an emotional little biatch, there are fighters that get fucked.  If you don't play by the UFC rules and/or get on Dana's bad side, you end up like Shamrock, Ortiz, Torrez, Rampage, etc.
95  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kongo vs. Roy Nelson on: January 29, 2013, 05:31:27 PM
He will go to Japan. He loves it there. As far as his training. He's old school when it comes to conditioning and cutting weight. He and his camp still believe in long slow runs for conditioning + sparring, little strength work and although I have no idea how much he cut the week of the fight, he usually does the 15-20lbs 48hrs prior to weigh ins and smoking when he's not getting ready for a fight is a detriment as well. The only time he trains is when he fights. I still contend that it was Dolce that fucked him up for his fight against Rashad.

he smokes cigarrettes or weed?

This proves the point that you don't need an "assault" rifle or semiautomatic gun to defend yourself.  A handgun worked just fine :-)
97  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kongo vs. Roy Nelson on: January 29, 2013, 01:37:14 PM
Joe,

For Kongo's sake, if he manages to get in the octagon against Nelson, he better win or at the very least give Nelson the fight of his life.

He needs to stay relevant in the UFC, before Dana starts to cut him off as he does with all the fighters when he gets bored and can't exploit them for money.

"1"

why would Dana keep anyone around that doesn't deliver an ROI?  It's a business, not a charity organization...
