On Glock Revolvers, Rapid Fire Ammunition, and Assault Clips

My wife hates watching action movies with me. Her biggest complaint is hearing me groan when a scene involving a gun isn't accurate. I just tell her to deal with it, because she does a lot of things that annoy me. Alright, I don't actually tell her that but I'm thinking it!

Recently I have been reading a lot of news stories that are riddled with inaccuracies or flat-out made-up words.

Glock Revolver
I don't understand how an author of an article on gun control doesn't know the difference between  a semi-automatic pistol and a revolver. Don't get me wrong; I would love to see a Glock Revolver in real life, but I have a better chance of seeing the Minnesota Vikings win a Super Bowl. (Which will never happen...)

Rapid-Fire Ammo
These people think that the Federal Government is capable of protecting them from mass murders. If you want the Government to protect you get them to pass a carry law and start discreetly carrying a gun. Ultimately, it all comes down to what you are willing to do in order to protect yourself and the ones around you. Trust me the Government poses a more legitimate threat than made-up Rapid-Fire Ammo.

Assault Clips
I can understand the common mistake of calling a magazine a clip. I once did that until I was educated on the difference. But calling an extended magazine or even worse; a standard capacity magazine an Assault Clip!? You're being misleading and at worse you are placing blame for murders on a tool that saves lifes and not the human being that did the killing.

  2. On the off chance that more individuals that compose articles truly fretted about composing extraordinary substance like you, more perusers would be keen on their compositions. Much obliged to you for thinking about your substance. ספרינקלרים בדירה
