The BBC apparently had this zinger in a recent article. Little wonder people are so misinformed on this issue.

What’s the misinformation?

The firing rates.

One trigger pull = one shot, regardless of the infographic semi-automatics. Magazine size and reload does not make that big a difference.

It also has the AR15 semi-automatic hilariously firing 20 rounds per second... which is also considerably faster than the fully automatic M16!

The BBC saw the error of their ways and took it down, without a retraction note of course. Might be worth reconsidering the reliability of the rest of the article!

Sakes, i’d just bought an AR 15 for my rampage as well. 

Well done to the bbc for giving ammunition* to the modern day green ink brigade. Not sure what that info graphic would have added to anyone’s understanding of the issues even if correct. As it is, zoomers will trot out the “you can’t believe them when they say people die from being shot in the head” bollocks.

I understand that the actual rate for the AR15 is 700-900 but that’s on the automatic setting. Seems someone quoted this in Congress a couple of massacres ago.

I would feel much better only getting shot 11 times a second than 20. 

 

*see what I did there?

Rate of fire for a weapon is the rate it can discharge at till the magazine\belt is empty. Not the amount of bullets you can fire in a minute. Really basic information. 

And "modified" semi autos include things like "bump stocks" (you tube them).

The guy in the first massacre on this thread had his weapons bought for him by his father so I'm not sure why she thinks fatherlessness is an issue.

There are 11 million single parent families in America. Aye, that must be it, rather than assault rifles with 100 bullet magazines being sold in corner shops, a president who calls immigrants rapists, thieves and murderers, and websites promoting racial purity and celebrating mass murderers as heroes.

As long as you don't go to supermarkets, malls, cinemas, gay bars, entertainment districts, universities, synagogues, schools, somebody's work you'll probably be o.k.

Probably to be expected but the WH transcripts of what was discussed yesterday are depressing. All about how wonderful Trump is. Not a single mention of the victims.

Either that or any government is duty bound to advise citizens on the risks of travel to various places, regardless of the crime rate at home. Fud.

That's actually quality trolling from a country with a considerably higher crime rate that the US.

And I don't think there are shooters going about Montevideo especially seeking out Hispanics to murder.

Maybe this approach would be a decent way to thin the herd.

For example, the British Govt have no right advising against travelling to Northern Syria whilst they dont have Brexit in order

I do not think that school, university or work for that matter are regular places where some of our commentators are to be found.

So are you suggesting that they are gay, party loving, Jews? Can't say I've picked that up from their posts...

All extremely safe places on the whole. The majority of gun homicides are gang-related, mass shootings family-related.

So as long as you don’t have any family it’s all perfectly sound?
