Concrete piercing

NY Daily News doesn't like AR-15's and they don't like Southerners. First quote:

"Last week, as some Southern stores resumed sale of the rifle, Police Officer Darrell Corti demonstrated its destructive power."

Obviously, gun crimes are not only the fault of AR-15's, Tec-9's, AK's, and Uzis, the dreaded Southern population has dared to rear it's ugly head.

More scary stuff:

"Corti aimed the weapon at a cinderblock at the NYPD firing range at Rodman's Neck in the Bronx and pulled the trigger. The burst of gunfire rang loudly in the ears despite protective gear. The narrow bullet traveled at such a high velocity that it pierced a half-dollar-sized hole in the inch-thick side of the stone before shattering into shiny fragments.
The round is capable of penetrating some bulletproof vests."

I've never tried firing my AR at a cinder block (I get a bit paranoid about ricochets and what not, coupled with the fact that logical gun safety would obviously bar this activity from a common sense point of view.) Needless to say, though, I never realized a .223 could go through anything. If my AR can do that, imagine what my .223 bolt can do.

One more nod to our Southern brothers and sisters:

"New York's own ban on assault weapons remains in effect, and the city has some of toughest gun laws in the nation, but traffickers have managed to smuggle in thousands of illegal handguns each year through Southern states, where lax laws allow multiple purchases and the use of so-called straw buyers."

Geez, it seems like every gun smuggler happens to be below the Mason-Dixon line. You people need to get your shit together on behalf of the the other 4/5ths of the nation that obeys laws.

It never ceases to amaze me; if you live in New York City, nothing exists west of the Mississippi, and anything south of Vermont is the OK corral, just not as smart.

Elitist shits.
