TX: Failing to outlaw the war machines used in Sutherland Springs is a sin

Within its double doors lies the scene of the greatest mass murder in Texas history, which took 26 lives and wounded 20 more. The weapon was nearly the same as every mass shooting in recent U.S. history: a Ruger AR-556 gas-powered, military-grade semiautomatic, more killing machine than mere rifle.

Wielded by Devin Kelley, it was one of the 5 million AR-15-type weapons in this country, a kissing cousin to America's standard-issue combat weapon. Along with supposedly civilian versions of Russian, Chinese and German combat weapons, this is the weapon of choice for mass killers from Aurora to Newtown, from San Bernardino to Orlando, Las Vegas and now, Wilson County, Texas. Only the 9 mm pistol, also semi-automatic, is as prevalent.

What an irrational, ignorant op-ed, bereft of facts (.556? Please.) and long on hyperbole.

The good news is that none of this jackwagon's wet dream will ever manifest.

U.S. v. Miller ruled that these so-called "war machines" are the type protected within the ambit of the 2A. D.C. v. Heller ruled that we have a constitutionally protected right to bear them for "lawful purposes".

It's called SETTLED LAW.
