Did I Just See More Dishonest Reporting by 60 Minutes Tonight?

So I was in a sports bar that had many flat panels all over the walls. There was no audio, but I THOUGHT I saw a segment from 60 minutes that was trying to insinuate that bullets from an AR 15 causes more damage than other rifles?? Excuse me, but I think a 223 Rem from just about any rifle will give you the same ballistic gel results.

Or am I mistaken? Maybe it was a segment about how awesome the AR 15 is

Or maybe 60 minutes thinks all 223 caliber rifles should be banned??

I always thought they were less likely to fragment compared to the original M16 with the 1:12 twist (less stable) and 20in bbl (faster).

It was a replay of an earlier broadcast. Cabbage is better the second day, but this story didn't get any better the second time. The only thing it has in common with the cabbage is more gas.

Good question; I just happen to see it. The reporters during the intro looked older than dirt. Made me feel a lot better.

when 'they' either have to make stuff up, or don't care enough to research and present the facts, pretty clear there is some unfounded hysteria or agenda going on.

Pretty standard of Dems and gun grabbers. They don't know anything about firearms 95% of the time. Maryland law is a perfect example. A new AR 15? Illegal. A new AR10? Same laws as a bolt action rifle, magazine aside...
