The piint is that basically any rifle can be termed "sniper rifle".

And that is why we need adult dialogue.

Most gun grabbers have zero interest in either adult dialogue or individual freedom.

Yes, I agree...... Re-read you post and then lets talk about "adult dialogue."



So, are you saying that if you are killed with a 9mm versus a .270.....you are not dead?


Logic, you have no logic in your post.

What does someone think when they are being a sharp shooter?

Me, generally 2, 3 things. Activate where I come up on sights, the sling wrapped around my support arm, the rifle pulled tight into my body, my cheek welded to it, safety flicked to fire. Acquire target lock as I hold my breath, try to lock the post on the target for that necessary fraction of a second to fire. And.......
.......the growing fatigue factor that says break off, flick to safe, don't do the shot because you have to, that time is running out.

It is sort of, I guess, like they say in DS9 "Field of Fire" of "you're calm, focused, in control". That can lead to the after thoughts of "I am the best!" or at least, "In or out of the cockpit, I am still the best shot you've got.".

While the range is about an hour away, I still yearn to go there as often as I can, when decadent chasing of rainbows hasn't kicked in, for it is what it is to be professional.

When I was younger, when "everyone" was saying how great they were at this or that, I "comforted" myself of what a great shot I was. Now, with the combat suite extending into so much, precision is it's own reward.

Seeing the world from this sphere, what is the view of a mass shooter? Undisciplined, unpracticed, a rank amateur without a care for the art, someone who's high view of themselves needs to be yanked down to zero, who sees marksmanship of how much lead can be fired (it's a line from "High Risk") and not of putting rounds on target............

..........."and not some scum who should be exterminated slowly?". Well, no........because as I said in the psychology thread about telling someone off if there were no consequence.......I am always in control. I am too well trained, focused, disciplined, even very proud to engage in out of control emotions such has hate and fury.

How have I come to such control? Probably through marksmanship, the control of the mind, the emotions, the body, to calm ones self and put rounds on target. Clear the mind, don't think about who cut you off in traffic 10 minutes ago, clear the mind, bring the emotion levels to zero, bring it all down, and put rounds on target.

The current course of this thread does sound like the Black Death where something that could be an aid is being tossed out, just like the cats.

Just as I have my detox clocks to obey because I carry a gun, I find that this discipline of the art is a lot better than popping pills.

Do you agree that cops should be disarmed?
Cops in Houston just charged with murder. Shot and killed innocent civilians. Where are the protests?

The skin color of the victims and the cop don't fit the narrative.

"Cops in Houston just charged with murder." Every single one of them? Over exaggeration is a reason many DON'T believe what liberals say.

Bill clinton, a dem, is a PROVEN LIAR. Does that make EVERY dem a liar?

I referenced a sniper from WW2 that shot over 700 people and your first question to me is to ask what the circumstances were? Well you see, there was this guy hiding and then he shot some Germans from far off. I hope that clears up that question for you.

I'm merely pointing out the obvious, that an "actual" sniper rifle doesn't seem to be the types of rifles that they're actually trying to propose restrictions on.

Logically, if you want to propose restrictions on something you should correctly describe them rather than try to make up new terms or words or sexy-sounding new definitions that play well with those that have never held a gun in their life and would believe you if you said that you were mugged by a guy holding a 120mm handgun.

Your 2nd sentence was a strawman with no bearing to my point.
