Loading the gun started with shoving stuff down the barrel. The Illinois
Governor noted yesterday that our founders were using that technology.
Next came the breach load. Break the gun open and load and remove rounds one by one from the butt end.
Then came the bolt action, lever action, revolver and pump action. All of these technologies allowed the loading of numerous rounds in the gun to be shot one by one. Tube magazines under barrels held 15 or more for lever actions.
Finally technology brought the automatic and semi-automatic actions in hand guns and rifles. One trigger pull to empty the gun for full auto. One trigger pull per round for semi.
The sounds you can hear on the current video is of a high capacity semi-auto: bang bang bang bang………they say 83 rounds, two or three reloads?
The sound of a pump, bolt or lever gun would be bang load bang load bang load .......
The capacity of a bolt gun is four or five. Then the shooter needs to stop and put more rounds in.
The capacity of a pump or lever gun is around 10-15. Then the shooter needs to stop and reload.
The capacity of a modern semi-auto military assault rifle is 20-50 per magazine with quick magazine swaps. Push a button, the empty magazine drops, slap in a new full one, push a button and pull the trigger until empty.
Why don't we all be ORIGINALISTS for a minute and allow unfettered Second Amendment rights to individuals with muzzle loaders and regulate the hell out of all other technologies.
I destroyed my ARs a few years ago.
