I went with the missus to a nearby flea market and I bumped into an object I have been wanting for the last three years: One of the 19th century “Assault Weapons.”
“But Miguel, that is a plain old messed up flat iron! It does not go pew-pew!” and you are right, but alongside the hatchet, the hammer and the iron bar, this was responsible for many families being murdered in their sleep back in the 1800s. We are being bombarded by the Gun Control Cult with the false narrative that prior to the invention of semi and fully automatic firearms, mass murders did not exist. We have covered many times in this blog where arson has been a weapon of choice and still remains on top as body count producer. And the FBI UCR still list Impact Weapons as killing more people than all rifles combined in this day and age, so clearly=there is nothing new under the sun (or moon), it is just not politically smart for the Antis to acknowledge it.
If you think about it, it is the perfect weapon for somebody with the desire to inflict a lot of damage. One strike to the head of the unsuspecting father would silently render him out of commission immediately and with the bigger threat eliminated, the rest of the family was easy pickings. Some mass murderers would go to set the house on fire to distract authorities and cover the crime for some time while they escaped and by the time the coroner’s inquest was done (if) and the deaths ruled murders (if at all), the criminal was long gone. Oh yeah, if one of the victims was not outright killed but seriously incapacitated by the impact weapon, the fire would surely end up the job.
A bullet ends up being the most “merciful” way to mass murder.

Tie a rope to it and it will become a semi auto flat iron, after you throw it you can retrieve it and throw it again heh
Before the cast iron skillet came into its proper realm of glory these were the at hand tool of leveling the playing field, so many stories of the lady of the house getting fed up and going upside her husbands head or aye as you said a ready weapon at hand when opportune. Looks like that one got used hard, rebuilt/refitted, and used some more. Neat find.
