Who Writes This Crap?

"it was loaded with bullets bigger than three inches long and sharp on the front end, designed to pierce and made to explode on impact." I mean come on who writes this garbage, and why must they always embellish to make it sound more dramatic?

MELBOURNE, Fla. -- "Police in Melbourne are looking for an armed robber who pulled off a small heist with a big gun. Police released pictures to Channel 9 Thursday taken from inside the 7-Eleven on South Babcock Street.

Police couldn't tell if gun was loaded. If it was, it was loaded with bullets bigger than three inches long and sharp on the front end, designed to pierce and made to explode on impact.

Police believe the gun the robber was pointing at the clerk is a Russian SKS military assault rifle. It could be semi-automatic or automatic. It's a very powerful gun armed with a scope on it."

First, if the police couldn't tell if it was loaded then how the hell does this reporter know what kind of bullets are in it?

Second, that is an SKS (at least they got that right) which fires a 7.62x39mm round which is just a hair over 2 inches not bigger than three.

Third, exploding bullets? Come on people do some fucking research before you write please.


They try to make people more scared of the gun than the assailant. The gun is just a thing, he could have robbed that store with a knife. It's media coverage like this that gets more gun laws passed that have no impact on actual gun crime.

Agreed...but you should be sending what you wrote, directly to the newspaper that printed it, then for good measure, find their advertisers and threaten to make a big stink in the media over this and let them know you will put their name out there as supporters of such drivel...try it, nice job commenting, go further, we all need reality versus stupidity.

he robbed the store with a tactical nuke. now thats fucking scary. and when did scopes make guns more powerful. like the flowmaster sticker on the rear window of you camaro adds 5 horsepower. idiot-assholes

"It's a very powerful gun armed with a scope on it."
Does that mean it's a doubly dangerous gun not only in it's own right but "armed" with a scope. I've always fitted scopes to my rifles and never thought them as armed...

I don't think there is such a thing as an automatic SKS. And personally I'd rather be shot with a sharp bullet than a blunt one...the bullet would pass straight through, doing less damage. No wonder these idiots are afraid of guns, they don't know a damn thing about them.

youtube some of the Katrina stuff and you will be even more pissed they took the firearms of everyone down there.

That's the sort of shit we saw (and still see) in Australia from Anti-gun nutters and Greens Party members right before the government spent more than 1/2 of one billion dollars buying back firearms which had no effect on gun crime here at all- there is 12 years of data to prove it.

Can you get me that data link? I would like to use it...
Thanks,
Where are you by the way? I spent almost 4 years in Exmouth, WA and my glock 19 is either still there in somebody's collection or it was destroyed!!!
