    For a killing spree?  Also,  I would appreciate it if you would follow the custom of calling us all ignorant in the title for any diary explaining the technical workings of firearms.  Thanks for the insight.  Reced.

      Calling someone 'ignorant' about guns is not a matter of custom, it is a matter of determining that the person is uninformed, often willfully so and proud of it, and then applying the appropriate and accurate descriptive term. Much like I would characterise Todd Akin on anything having to do with abortion, and exactly as useful as Todd Akin when opining on the issue.

        Thanks.  My feeling exactly.  ln the case of willful refusal to become informed before opining on a subject - like Todd Akin on abortion, I would prefer the terms "stupid," "idiotic," and "moronic." ;)
