CNN Thinks A ‘Full Semi-Automatic’ AR-15 Is A Real Thing – No, This Isn’t Satire

The expert they selected to talk about guns will make you wonder if ‘crack’ research team means something “different” over there.

Apparently, the folks over at CNN don’t have access to this new thing called ‘Google’. Because, even that hard-left search engine could have corrected their ignorance and saved them this embarrassment.

(Unless, of course, this slip of the tongue(?) was done intentionally as part of the ongoing effort to demonize the AR-15.)

Why do we say ‘slip of the tongue’? Because the person who said it wasn’t someone living in the New York or LA bubble.

This was retired Lieutenant General Mark Hertling. He was brought on as an expert to speak about weapons. If anyone SHOULD know better than to make that ‘mistake’, you’d think it would be military brass. Right?

Which brings us back to the question of whether it was actually a mistake or not.

That is the clip in question.

Her point, obviously, is because they don’t exist.

What is he saying, exactly?  Semi-automatic STILL means what it used to mean. One trigger-pull… one round fired. Does full semi-automatic mean you pull the trigger with your finger super-fast?

Meanwhile, back in the real world, if you hold the trigger down guess what happens? One round is fired. If you dress like Rambo and yell some stupid movie battle-cry when you hold the trigger down?

You guessed it. There is STILL only one round fired.

What makes military weapons different?

The FULL AUTO option.

With a weapon that can go ‘full auto’, you hold down the trigger, and the weapon keeps firing until you run out of ammo.

Don’t let the Left’s attempts to demonize the weapon fool you. The weapon is not the problem. It’s the person using it.

Remember the hero that finally put a stop to the moron who executed almost everyone in that Texas church? He was once a  training instructor for the NRA. He pulled his weapon out of it’s safe, and he gave chase to the thug, shot him, and waited for police to arrive on scene to tie up the loose ends.

That’s not the only case of ‘good guy with a gun’. In fact, current headlines have this story:

Dave Thomas saw the suspect attack another person inside his apartment building in Oswego Township on Monday. Thomas said he went inside and got his rifle before ordering the suspect to stop.

“I poked my head out the door. There was a pool of blood, blood was everywhere in the hall. There was still a confrontation going on, there were about three or four people involved at this point,” Thomas told the station. “So I ran back into my house and grabbed my AR-15. I grabbed the AR-15 over my handgun — bigger gun, I think a little more of an intimidation factor. Definitely played a part in him actually stopping.”


The Effeminization Of The American Male
by Doug Giles

Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog,, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity. That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.

It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.

Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.

What is driving them so berzerk?

Looks like we’ve found an answer:

A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…

That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.

Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.

You can get the guy’s version here.

And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
