But you knew that already.
Apparently Mr. Fat-Ass Lard-Ball himself had a "conversation"* with Piers Morgan over the non-existent merits of "gun control" here in the United States, and while I am going to try very, very hard to ignore the rest of his idiocy, this particular comment stood out in stark relief from the rest of his bigoted screed:
And I wish that we would just live in this century.
We do, jackass; that is why we use semi-automatic firearms instead of muskets. (Those muskets, by the by, could fire up to four rounds a minute in the hands of a skilled marksman, not the one round every fifteen minutes you ignorantly claim. Idiot.)
Granted, semi-automatic firearms were first developed in 1885 by a certain Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher; however, it would not be inaccurate to say that the mechanics and concepts of semi-automatic firearms have been polished and smoothed into relative perfection within the past century or so.
I wonder what the next major breakthrough will be? I was kind of hoping it would be Metal Storm’s superposed loading, but that does not seem to be going anywhere quickly…
Furthermore, given that the very intention of the Second Amendment was to allow the American people to stand toe-to-toe with contemporary, organized armed forces and authoritatively say, "NO!" I dare say the Founding Fathers would be all over the concept of semi-automatic firearms, and they would probably be marching in the streets demanding the repeal of the National Firearms Act and the legalization of ownership of new-production fully-automatic firearms for the people. But, hey, that whole "history" thing was never really your strong suit, was it, Mike?
Go back to stuffing your face; that seems to be the only thing you do well.
(… And, damnit, I just cannot let this painfully stupid quote go:
"I mean, we wouldn’t go to a doctor and have him put leeches on us to suck the blood out of us because that would cure us, that’s what they did, you know, a 150 years ago," Moore also said.
ORLY? You should tell that to the folks at the Yale Journal of Medicine & Law, and, in fact, the FDA to boot:
The use of medical leeching in modern microvascular surgery and tissue transfer began when two Slovenian surgeons used the parasites to assist with circulation after a tissue-flap transplantation. Then, in 1985, Harvard physician Joseph Upton used medicinal leeches to successfully reattach the ear of a five-year-old boy. Since then, leeches have been widely used to reduce venous congestion in fingers, toes, ears, and scalp reattachments, as well as to salvage vascularly compromised flaps, or muscle, skin, and fat tissue surgically removed from one part of body to another, and replants, limbs or other body parts reattached after traumatic amputation. Without leeching, blood clots often kill the repaired or transplanted tissue.
The only thing worse than a moron is an ignorant moron, and you are exactly that, Michael.)
