For those of you who have never seen it, I present you the Carolyn McCarthy incident.
Well I was searching for it for someone at work and discovered this:
Yes, that’s right folks, if you Google “Shoulder Thing That Goes Up” US Rep. McCarthy is displayed as the person you’re looking for. I do find something satisfying about her ignorance being placed front and center. I just wish if you searched for her name the first result was that video.
Never fear though because sling swivels are now on their way to replace the shoulder thing that goes up!
This is why we find our selves in the predicament we’re in. The media is either grossly or willfully negligent and the general public believes everything they say without fail. This would be funny if it weren’t for the fact that I’m sure some politican is going to hold this up in a legislative session and say we need to ban it!
Never mind the fact that grenade launchers are destructive devices along with each and every grenade. I personally have never seen one in the civilian market, even with all the gun shows I’ve been to. I’ve never seen a real RPG either. Yet this same group of media and journalists that label a sling point a bayonet mount says they can be obtained at gun shows. Remember though, we’re supposed to trust them because they have done careful research and are “educated” on the topic. When I was 4 I could have done a better job of identifying the different parts and the associated terms for a firearm.
