New Media Phrase: "Less Lethal Weapons."

The Shotgun and Revolver used in the recent school attack in Texas are being deemed "Less Lethal" than an AR type rifle:

I have a feeling that those killed by them might want to argue the point.

I told my wife that if I were gunning for someone I'd go with a shotgun and No. 4 buckshot.

News has been calling his shotgun a sawed-off shotgun. They've recovered homemade ieds from home and around school.

sgmkersh,

My "go to" firearm for home defense is a pump 12-gauge, loaded with five #1 buckshot shells.
(Beyond 50M & for farm defense, I reach for my Model 760 pump-rifle in .300SAV, loaded with ten 180 grain JSP shells.)

yours, sw

Br'er Mas claims that #1 Buck is the best all-around load for 12 GA.

Wish I had some. Never seen any on the shelves where I live. I still have a couple dozen rounds of #00 left over from LFI-II, but otherwise, my social load is #2s, the biggest thing I can get around here on sale.

"Yes, counselor, that is known as a 'turkey load.' Now you know why."

Snake45,

Wishing that I had an inexpensive way to get some of my numerous boxes of 5 to you. = I must have 20+ boxes at our farmhouse, that I bought CHEAP from a store that went TU.

csmkersh,

BTW, the shotgun used in the HORROR at Santa Fe was a Mossberg 12-gauge pump with a 26" barrel. = Once more the MSM is exposed as STUPID and/or simply LIARS.

The revolver, btw, was a common S&W 4" revolver & bullets from that "less lethal" handgun critically wounded 2 LEOs. = LEFTIST is a synonym for MORON.

yours, sw

You don't get much more typical, traditional "mainstream" hunting/sporting/self-defense guns than those. What are you gonna ban now to "keep us all safe," Komrade Fineswine?

Snake45; All,

The sole thing that you can count on, when a LEFTIST HATER of LIBERTY opens their BIG mouth, is that what spews forth onto the airwaves will be LIES or simply utterly ignorant FOOLISHNESS.
(I will forever remember the BRAINLESS "blond bimbo" from CNN who commented on "- - - - - the very deadly fully-automatic machine revolver that will spray over a hundred rounds per minute, without reloading. Such evil weapons should never be allowed to be owned by anyone." = I'd like to SEE that firearm & how a person could hand-carry it about.- The nearest firearm that I can think of to her LOONY description is a 30mm VULCAN automatic cannon, that is installed in a SPECTER gunship.)

yours, sw
