Our buddy, the Armorer had this linked to his Facebook wall. I’m going to call it Not Safe For Work because it will cause you to yell and scream and throw stuff which might make people pigeon hole you into the “crazy vet” thing.
Yes, they claim that there are heat-seeking incendiary bullets that could cook a deer when you shoot it. Of course, they want to keep it out of the hands of terrorists, but not the people who you and I would call terrorists. I’m pretty sure that the NRA wouldn’t fight a measure that would limit the use of incendiary, heat-seeking bullets, if there was such a thing.
I’m sure that the “incendiary device” they’re talking about is the tracer ammo that shows a shooter where his bullets are going. The only thing I’ve seen on the tip is the color marking that denotes to the shooter that he’s firing tracer ammo. There’s no device in the tip. Yes, I’ve seen tracers start grass fires in very dry climates, but it couldn’t cook a deer. And what the Hell this dumb bitch thinks is a “heat-seeking device”, well, it doesn’t exist to my knowledge.
It’s really too bad that there wasn’t a reporter at the press conference who could call those idiots out on their stupidity. I really don’t need a .50 cal rifle for anything, but just knowing that the moron hippies are this scared of me owning one, makes me want one real bad.
