“If one Georgia company is successful, accidental shootings that injure people may become a thing of the past,” Jesse Berney opines at bluenationreview.com. “That’s because if people start using their bullets, pretty much every person who gets shot will die.” Wow! That’s pretty much incredible! No wait, it’s totally incredible (for a handgun caliber bullet). So what’s the wonder round in question? “G2 Research’s “Radically Invasive Projectile” (RIP, get it? — because shooting people to death is hilarious) is a copper bullet that explodes when it hits a target (i.e., a human being) sending pieces screaming through vital organs and clearing a path for the bullet’s core to travel deeper through a person.” Oh please. In fact (inconvenient things that they are) . . .
ShootingTheBull410 shot that one down weeks ago [as above]. All author Berney had to do was Google the round and voila! Myth busted. But no, the myth suits Berney’s civilian disarmament agenda. The resulting anti-gun agitprop is a classic of its type. His/her hysteria is hysterical.
Even if you support gun ownership, which most Americans do, it’s time to admit there is something very sick and wrong with our gun culture in this country. The people conducting “open carry” protests at restaurants and stores around the country don’t have pistols attached to their hips; they are carrying assault weapons almost as big as they are. Soon they’ll be able to buy these bullets that tear people apart from the inside.
What kind of fear motivates you that you need to surround yourself constantly with the killing power of a small nation’s military? Whom do you think you’re making safer by toting this stuff around? The number of people shot accidentally by so-called responsible, law-abiding gun owners in this country is astounding. The deadlier we make our guns and our bullets, the more often those shootings will turn into irreversible tragedies.
There is literally no reason for these bullets to exist. Guns are deadly enough as it is.
I’ll leave it to TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia to RIP Berney a new one for advocating less deadly firearms and misrepresenting the number of people killed by negligent discharges. What I find astounding: the antis’ fear of firearms. Doesn’t it even occur to them to consult firearms experts before spouting their bile or, equally, to get to grips with the weapons they despise? I suppose not.
