David Chipman, a spokesman for Mayors Against Illegal Guns which lobbies for an expansion of background checks for people buying guns, said the PGF "is not your grandfather's hunting rifle used for sport and recreation this is a weapon designed to kill with precision."If they can come up with the $22,500 to buy it you twit, and once again we come to that unpleasant fact you guys refuse to acknowledge. Ya know, that long guns are rarely used in crimes. A rifle is not the weapon of choice for most criminals unless by criminal you mean gun owner.
"This technology potentially enables any two bit criminal to operate with the skills of a highly trained sniper," Chipman said.
Oh, and then there's this gem.
"I'm very much in favor of the password protection, but if the user opts not to utilize password protection this product gives shooters a better accuracy than, on average, most cops," Fineman said. He said the target accuracy of most police is three out of ten.Wait. You mean it doesn't scare you that police only hit the target three out of ten times?
"To think that private citizens that are not trained could shoot better than 3 out of 10, it's scary," Fineman said.
Here's what scares me. A chief executive of a pro-gun control organization pulls a statistic out of his ass and the journalist doesn't even question it.
