    That shot spotter technology is pretty interesting, I wonder how it works.

    I don't think fully-automatic ones are. From what I know, it's mostly semi-automatic models that are legal. But I suppose it depends on different states.

    The media is prone to call any rifle built on the Kalashnikov action an AK-47, but the vast majority of these in the US are semi-autos, and the remainder are legal only with a Class III Federal Firearms License.

    He was almost certainly using one of the semi-auto variants.

    Then after the MS-13 group would have chopped them all to pieces, there'd be nothing but tears and howls of injustice.

    Texas.


    There is a similar story in which a father was charged with manslaughter after killing a boy during a lynch mob gathering. They were not only on his property illegally, they threatened to rape his wife, kill his son and kill him.

    In the story you linked, there is nothing about the "lynch mob" (a few rowdy teenagers) threatening to rape his wife and kill him and his son. Do you have another link?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    "Lynch mob" can apply to any group of people who have gathered outside the lines of the law to preform some type of violence upon someone they've deemed guilty of a crime. As for the threats of rape and violence, only a few sources state what was threatened/supposedly threatened.

    I don't see why this guy shouldn't be charged with a crime. You can't just shoot your gun whenever and wherever you feel like it.

    You don't pull the trigger unless you're going to shoot someone in self-defense. We don't need a bunch of dumbasses firing "warning shots" into the ground/air everywhere.
