Thanks for the info.

The M1 Garand is gas operated. So this an "assult weapon"?
The Maxim Machine Gun is recoil operated. So this not an "assult weapon"?
Which would you rather your fellow citizens have?
Seems a recoil operated weapon will shoot about as fast as a gas operated one.

The Garand  falls under the same category as the M14, and the official classification was "battle rifle", despite the ability of the M14 to shoot automatic salvos, normally they should be assault rifles (at least by our modern classification). And no, the Maxim falls under the category machine gun, and it is quite irrelevant if gas or recoil operated, the fire mode is relevant here.

With large caliber ammunition it is better (because less complicated) to use recoil loading, with smaller ammunition gas loading.

And as far as I am concerned they can have all of them if they handle them with the care that should be given to a firearm.

It's all good. I figured we spoke enough already that you shouldn't wonder what angle I was coming from but I know it is hard to decipher personalties without faces, voices and body language.

True enough. reading plain text on a screen can make it much harder.. It is a lot different face to face. Anyhoo, glad there are no hard feelings..

The problem that has catapulted this issue into the mass media and its marble masters has nothing to do with handling firearms with care.   It's about politicizing inanimate objects because people turn murderous and then prey on helpless victims.   This notion that mass murderers sensationalized by our media aren't being careful is preposterous.

I didn't watch your video but I did read about the store owner being upset about the deception. I'm not saying he's stupid but what did he expect? Journalistic integrity? Chalk it up to a lesson learned.

Well, whether on not Alex Jones' argument is better or not, I had to give up watching after 10 minutes.

The guy simply just strokes his own ego.   It just makes him look like a arrogant snot.
