    that looks like a bolt, but maybe it's a recharge handle?
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    Ah, you're right. I didn't see the bolt there at first.

    I don't think so unless it's somehow custom. Pic even says model95.

    The M90 and M95 are bullpup, bolt action 50s. The M99 which looks similar is a single shot and doesn't carry a mag even.

    I don't know of semi autos that look like that in bullpup configuration.

    The M82 has a bullpup variant and is semi auto but is way longer because of the gigantic spring in it.

    Also this is ironic of how people think.

    Yeah that gun fires a bullet the size of your thumb. It will eat through armor, plow through ballistic glass (and maybe set it on fire along the way)
    They are some times used to detonate bombs from a safe distance.


    They aren't practical for assaults or murders, though, even if somebody is crazy. They are giant and the rounds are so huge that the mag holds what is it... 5 rounds? And bolt action on top of it? A killer wouldn't use this, unless there weren't something else.

    No, pretty impractical for school shootings. It's basically an oversized sniper rifle.

    Or an undersized cannon.

    Yet another hijack....

    A writer for the National Review hypothesized that the shootings in Newtown, Conn., would not have occurred if the school had more men around to fight back against Adam Lanza, “or even some of the huskier 12-year-old boys.”

    As part of an NRO symposium called “Newtown Answers,” Charlotte Allen writes:

    There was not a single adult male on the school premises when the shooting occurred. In this school of 450 students, a sizeable number of whom were undoubtedly 11- and 12-year-old boys (it was a K–6 school), all the personnel — the teachers, the principal, the assistant principal, the school psychologist, the “reading specialist” — were female. There didn’t even seem to be a male janitor to heave his bucket at Adam Lanza’s knees. Women and small children are sitting ducks for mass-murderers. The principal, Dawn Hochsprung, seemed to have performed bravely. According to reports, she activated the school’s public-address system and also lunged at Lanza, before he shot her to death. Some of the teachers managed to save all or some of their charges by rushing them into closets or bathrooms. But in general, a feminized setting is a setting in which helpless passivity is the norm. Male aggression can be a good thing, as in protecting the weak — but it has been forced out of the culture of elementary schools and the education schools that train their personnel. Think of what Sandy Hook might have been like if a couple of male teachers who had played high-school football, or even some of the huskier 12-year-old boys, had converged on Lanza.
    I think there's a small point there, in that if men had been on staff, yes, perhaps things would have ended with less loss of life. It's something to consider.

    But I think it's the last sentence where it's obvious the dialogue is being hijacked for someone else's agenda, with the wording of, "male aggression has been forced out of elementary school..."

    Thoughts?

    Correcting misconceptions is hardly jubilant. That's called keeping with reality. I don't think that is a wrong endeavor regardless of how controversial the subject is.
