Spraying Lead


As a veteran of WWII, and armorer for the 801st M.P. Battalion, I know what a military assault rifle does. It is designed to kill as many men as possible, as quickly as possible. Spray lead! Establish immediate superiority in fire power!

Why would anyone want such a vicious weapon? One could mow down a herd of deer or (God forbid) a crowd of schoolchildren, with ease. All military/assault rifles should be banned, now.

Why is the NRA defending assault rifles? Can it be that the NRA is planning an insurgency or revolution against the U.S. Army?
