After y’all flag Squiggles for making not all that well veiled insurrectionist threats again (still), go to YouTube.
Look up “.223 FMJ ballastic gel” and see what an AR-15 round can do. Imagine that was a ten year old and not a slab of gelatin (and a 5.56 round can do even more damage). That’s what the NRA/ILA pushes. That’s what was so very, very easy for an 18 year old whackjob who had already made terroristic threads was able to buy. That’s why we need waiting periods, better background checks, red flag laws, an end to straw purchases, and more.
A whacko 18 year old shouldn’t have firearms let alone weapons like that. Squiggles definitely isn’t any different. No civilian needs a weapon capable to doing that.
