dominion post - monday.
« on: January 01, 2014, 04:32:07 PM »
so these bastards were "reporting" on some mass-shooting in the us.
on 999 days of 1000, i don't give a shit about the us.
BUT, in their reporting, they had a photo of an m16 looking thing, captioned
"a military style semi automatic like the one used in the [emotive] killing of children" - this is a term from new zealand legislation, would not have likely been found in the american report/inquest into the shooting.

this is LIKELY propaganda.
i have no knowledge of what the actual weapon is/was, whether it was a stock photo or evidential.
it struck me as odd that it even needed to be included, and particularly that the term MSSA needed to be mentioned.

anyway. just more from akz' eye on the world.

Typical scare-mongering from people who don't have a clue what they're talking about.
Come on Akzle, isn't it common knowledge that a pistol grip makes a gun more likely to be lethal to people?  ::)
