During my recent trip to Machine Gun America I was able to fire a number of fully automatic assault rifles and one submachine gun. To say the least, it was incredible. Now it’s time to rank them all.
Of course, this isn’t easy to do. Ranking machine guns is a lot like ranking your children; you love them all so much. They each have their own special qualities and quirks. They each fill your heart with a slightly different kind of joy. How can you ever pick between them?
Well, here’s my best shot.
I’ve experienced the shock of the floor suddenly dropping out from under my feet as I sat atop Disney World’s 200-foot-tall “Tower of Terror.” I’ve felt the hair stand up on the back of my neck while being launched from nine miles per hour to 40 in a split second up the 105-foot first hill of Universal Studio’s ‘Incredible Hulk’ rollercoaster. But there’s nothing that compares to feeling flames kiss your hand as they spew out of a short-barreled fully-automatic M4 assault rifle while it eats through a 30 round magazine at 900 rounds per minute inside Orlando’s latest, and greatest, attraction: Machine Gun America.
“You have a mayor who hates guns,” new Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told a crowd at the St. Augustine Catholic Church recently. The Washington Interfaith Network was gathered at the church to discuss a number of different issues, including the city’s new gun carry law. The mayor’s comments came after DC’s latest move to ban the legal carry of firearms from places of worship unless the house of worship specifically says otherwise.
