TTAG Commentator Fred Friendly left this underneath our DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: What’s the Dumbest Thing You’ve Heard A Politician Say About Guns Recently?
Stupid Democrat swine. They can’t even do basic math, they are stuck with Obama Math. Biden and the average Dumbocrat will say AR15s must be banned because they “hold too many bullets” and that shotguns are all anyone needs for protection. Lets do some actual math, not Dumbocrat Math.
The average magazine used in the average AR15 is a 30 rounder. The Batman Colorado movie shooter used a Betamag, but that is an exception in these mass shootings, and his jammed after 20 rds. Most shootings using an AR15 used a standard 30 rd mag which means 30 .22cal rounds can be put on target before reloading.
The average pump shotgun holds 5 shot shells in the feeding tube, Double 00 buck has 9 pellets per shell. 9×5 = 45 .32 cal pellets that can be put on target before reloading. Some shotguns have 9 rd tubes, meaning 9×9= 81 .32 cal pellets on target before reload.
45 vs. 30 or 81 vs. 30. Either way, Crazy Joe’s shotgun puts alot more lead on target at close ranges than the AR15. Of course this example doesnt take long range accuracy, different mags, etc etc….into account, but it does display the complete ignorance of the leftist stooges who obsess over what’s really a nominally destructive platform. If this is all about capacity, the AR15 is underwhelming compared to a 9 rd shotgun.
Just a little regular math to use when some idiot leftist stooge is spouting Obama Math.
