Civil War Terror

Posted by vpcadmin on April 24, 2008

The Gun Blobbers could not be satisfied with the terrible destructive power of .50 BMG rifles. Their insanity demanded it be taken one step further. Behold, a “hunting rifle” with a two-inch bore:

Danger to humanity.

It’s pretty obvious you can’t hunt with this, yet the Gun Blobbers insist on their “right” to own such a monstrosity. Cannons such as these have over 100,000 foot-pounds* of power, while .50 BMG rifles only have 15,000 foot-pounds of power. It goes without saying that cannons of such power can easily knock down helicopters, especially when they employ the dreaded “canister shot”**.

Victim of the Gun Blobby.

Fact: civilians in the United States can own cannons with very little regulation. They come in a variety of sizes: 1-inch, 2-inch, 3-inch, and even 6-inch bores. However, the most disturbing of all is the “Parrot Rifle”:

The Branch Davidians had one of these.

It has over 1.3 million foot-pounds of even-more-deadly energy. It’s an anti-fort weapon for Christ’s sake! And any child in America could go out and buy one!

The answer is clear: we must shut down Dixie Gun Works and any other so-called “cannon manufacturer”. It’s the only way to make sure terrorists don’t get their hands on one of these.

Edited to Add: Hat tip to our good friend Mike Magnum @ The Gun Guys.

*Foot-pounds is a unit of force that indicates how many people will be maimed by firearms.

**So named because a person’s remains will fit into a canister.

  1. […] tries to argue that we can’t hunt with black powder cannons.  Pretty clearly, this is a bald faced lie.  They also work for cutting down the feral cat […]

  2. Notso said

    Your definition of foot-pounds is pretty funny. Here is the actual definition.

    Unit of energy
    One foot-pound is the amount of energy expended when a force of one pound acts through a distance of one foot along the direction of the force.


    As you can see, it has nothing to do with maiming someone(that’s really funny). Please try to be a little more accurate.
