Where does it say "sniper rifle"??? Where does it say they want to grab them?

The article states a "sniper" shot at the cop. The true meaning of sniper is MILITARY person using a rifle for that specific purpose. The author of the article misused the term. This seems to be very common today...…...using the wrong adjective or adverb to describe something which is NOT true...……….

agreed... but to morph the one use of "sniper" to "sniper rifle" and then morph that into gun grabbers wanting to ban them is rewriting the article intentionally to troll/rant.

Well regulated in this context doesn't mead what you think it means. I'm willing to bet you knew this but don't really care.

Because it's the bill of rights, not the bill of needs.

The Founding Fathers intent and use of "well regulated" has been covered in POC and elsewhere ad nauseam and there is also a wealth of historical and grammatical analysis of the wording and context of the Second Amendment to be found online. They either choose to remain willfully ignorant, or are incapable of learning anything but what they're fed by their controllers ... or they are simply trolls.

Oh we're choosing our own definitions, ok.


Trobe - as per the urban dictionary has two meanings, the second of which is "idiot". As you say, I'll go with that. There are a number of equally applicable hashtags associated with that definition that help cement the case for that one being the right one.

PRECISELY!

As oppose to killing the bird with a shot gun........and having to dig all that shot out of your meat, she dispatches the bird by taking off the inedible head.
