Government-funded researchers discover basic ballistics. Our government has yet another overpriced no shit Sherlock moment.

The researcher found that the use of “medium” and “large” caliber guns resulted in more fatal wounds than the “small” caliber firearms.

They needed a study to tell them that???!!! They could have given me 1/2 the money and I could have told them that for less. And these people want to dictate “common sense gun ‘safety’” to us???

I could have told them that as an expert for 1/4 of the money. There is no common sense gun safety, just an overwhelming desire to take everyone’s guns and make us sheeple.

Let’s see here. If I kill a deer with my .22 rifle at 30 yards does that mean a .22 is more deadly than my 30.30 when I shoot a deer 100 yards away? If I shoot someone with a .9mm 15 feet away is it more deadly than shooting that person with a .45 20 feet away? If I take down an elk at 600 yards with my .308 is it less deadly if I hit an elk 800 yards away?

Stupid “studies” like this are part of the reason our national debt is so high. Any damn fool knows that smaller caliber weapons do not have the knock down power as a larger caliber weapon but that does not mean they are less deadly when the shooter knows what they are doing. A cop friend told me one time the weapon they feared the most if in a shootout was a .22. Because of the small size of the round and the slow velocity a .22 will go through a Kevlar vest that would stop a .45 round with no problem.

What it boils down to is all firearms can be deadly and it does not take a fancy gooberment study to figure that out. This was a waste of taxpayers money, unless it was used to buy beer while the educated idiots talked to people who know all about firearms.

Damn I could have told them that from all my experiences and it would have only been 1/2 the cost.

Yes I did. What ever the cost, I would have gladly done the study for 1/2 the cost. Written the report in simple understandable terms as well.
