One of the wonderful things about being a geek is that I understand some of the hidden messages in URLs and such. For example, if I see an URL that ends in “image-300×144.png” I am pretty sure there is also “image.png” at the same location that is likely high resolution.
When reading articles on my phone, URLs aren’t shown to me so I just get the clickbait and look further looking for fodder for the blog.
When I read this headline my first thought was “Oh boy, some journalist figured out that there is an AR-10”.
Now I use to think that no mass murder would spend thousands of dollars on a gun they were only going to use once. Why not go with a $600 AR-15 from PSA or S&W. Then the Uvalde shoot proved me wrong buy purchasing $4000 worth of guns and ammo. Even that pales in comparison to a list prices of $7,999 for the Sig Sauer MCX-SPEAR. Not counting the ammo and the tax stamp for the can on the front.
Yep, these people are afraid of the gun owners that are willing to fork over $8k plus more for the ammo just to have the latest and greatest semi-auto only version of the next gen gun for our military.
Worse, while the link above is to Business Insider, they are pulling from The Daily Beast.
Remember, everything is an assault weapon to these people, and you shouldn’t own any firearm, second Amendment be damned.
