Response to Straw Man (Reply #37)

38. I'm pretty sure I called it stupid gunnut nonsense, you can call it whatever you like

But for those who lack the capability of reading between the lines, let me explain it.

The fully automatic and burst fire modes of the M16, M4, and pretty much every other standard assault rifle issued to every military in the world is the least used and has been stressed as such by military training pretty much since the very first ones were issued by the German military in WWII. So calling the capability of those modes a "significant distinction" is just more gunnut nonsense. The reason those weapons have the capability of those modes is because there's no restriction against it and it has very limited application in real world combat. All repeating this stupid talking point does is identify one as someone who simply repeats stupid talking points without the least clue as to what they really mean (or don't mean). So meanwhile in the world most call reality, all those militaries you mentioned are very effectively killing the shit out of people wholesale almost exclusively in semi-automatic operation.
