Oh my god, the monumental cringe from the CNN factories. You have to watch this and brace yourself so you won’t snap your spine with the cringe like I have…
This is what an AR-15 sounds like
Straight away trying to make it look intimidating. Sure, it’s a gun and every gun is intimidating. But CNN is intentionally trying to make it more sinister than it is just to push their bullshit narrative.
FACT: If you fire any kind of a gun in a huge empty hall (shooting range), the echo created by the hall will make even a .22 Short from a handgun sound like it has a massive stopping power of a sniper rifle.
General Mark Herting served in US Army for 37 years
There is no way this guy is a real person or even a Lieutenant General.
FACT: The way he’s firing the AR-15 like he’s a bit retarded, the way rifle is rocking all over the place like he’s firing an M60 from a hip to one single specific thing he said later on, that made me believe he’s not really a real person, let alone a former soldier. There is a 3rd possibility that he’s a real person and a real soldier, but CNN made him behave like an absolute imbecile to appease their dumb viewers and push the narrative the way they want it, to make AR-15 look absolutely terrifying and scary like it’s a nuclear bomb or something.
Full Semi Automatic
When this alleged Lieutenant General said this very specific line I questioned everything about this video…
FACT 1: There is no such thing in existence as “full semi automatic” rifle. It’s an literal oxymoron and if a former soldier who served for 37 years says something so monumentally retarded, he basically wiped out his entire credibility.
FACT 2: AR-15 has a single firing mode and that is “semi automatic”. There is no other mode to switch to. So, when he’s saying “now I’m going to switch to “full semi automatic” :)” he’s just talking gibberish at this point.
FACT 3: Semi automatic means, every time you pull a trigger, a bullet flies out of the barrel. To fire a next round, you need to depress the trigger and press it again. This is what a “semi automatic” is. “Full Automatic” means you squeeze the trigger once and it will fire for as long as there are rounds in a magazine. Semi automatic guns literally fire as fast as you can physically pull the trigger.
This weapon in the wrong hands can be more dangerous than most weapons because of its capability to do a lot of damage in short period of time and be irreversible.
FACT: Saying AR-15 is more devastating than lets say Glock or a 9mm Beretta is total and utter nonsense. Every gun is devastating and every gun is designed to inflict irreversible damage if possible under given conditions, be it chambered with tiny .22 or fat .45. Of course shorter barrel brings slightly lower accuracy and slightly smaller stopping power because gases don’t have as much time pushing the bullet through the barrel, increasing its kinetic energy, but the reality is, every fired bullet is fast enough and has enough stopping power to be deadly at typically ranges experienced in school shootings which is what most people are familiar with. So, if you take a school shooting scenario, perpetrator having an AR-15 or a Glock would not make a single difference. A bullet of any kind hitting vital organs like brain, heart or liver could result in death in seconds or minutes. Doing this absurd witch hunt after AR-15 specifically like it’s some special weapon of mass destruction is just insane, stupid and illogical. It’s as lethal as any other firearm.
I haven’t served military and I haven’t fired a single gun myself (paintball and air guns and rifles don’t count). But I am fascinated by physics, mechanics and guns. And I learn about them a lot and I know how they operate and what kind of damage they inflict. And even I could spot all this bullshit in CNN’s video and they are pushing this drivel to the masses like it’s a holy word of a prophet. It’s bunch of illogical nonsense designed to further confuse casual CNN viewers who don’t know better to push this anti gun narrative you miserable sacks of shit, CNN is a sad excuse for what used to be called journalism. Stop talking about guns because you’re bunch of cretins who don’t know anything about it and you’re making that Lieutenant General look like a total fool saying those words. Assuming he’s a real person to begin with…
