LEAVE LINK COLD

I hate these guys.

Attributing some sort of magnificent "cop killer" quality to the gun is just bogus.

They are more prevelant in criminal hands because they are one of the most purchased and affordable guns in anyone's hands.

I really hate when they say that the "guns killed"

Horseshit.

The guns WERE USED BY GOBLINS to kill...

Bingo. I had to explain that rather bluntly to a young medical examiner at a death review meeting last year - right after three officers were killed in one incident with one here.

ETA: Just read the link and saw that they mentioned that shooting, of course.

I love how they use the Norinco D model in the picture as if to imply that all SKS rifles use AK mags

Looks like i will be buying a CRATE in honor of sarah brady sooner than i thought.

Yup, I've noticed that some vendors are selling YUGOs by the crate at fun shows in the last year or two.

Yeah, right, like I can get an SKS D for $180. Where?

And while they're at it, where are all my assault weapons available on every street corner? That would be damn convenient. I usually have to order mine, or at least drive 45 minutes or so to the gunstore.

Can't trust these guys for anything.

Let me know when you find a distributor who'll sell a crate of them. Sounds like just the thing to use as a coffee table in New Jersey - a crate of SKS rifles covered with a nice glass top.

I'd do it. Cheaper than some meaningless piece of furniture that serves to please only an aesthetic sense of design. This would please me in so many ways.

Goddamn it. If the VPC makes me buy a SKS I'm really gonna be mad.

I love how they keep using ATF trace numbers to make their cases, even though the ATF has repeatedly said that they run traces on firearms for many reasons, not just because they were used in a crime.

But the VPC never let the truth stand in their way before, so why should they start now?
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 10:10:08 AM EDT
Glad I only have 4 SKS's. Looks like I ought to get another dozen. A crate of a dozen would be awesome.

I've got an SKS that uses AK mags, but it doesn't have that dorky looking thumbhole stock thank god.

Here is some SKS porn for you guys. This is my 1968 all milled Norinco SKS. Bought it from a fellow ARFCOMMER. Scooter1942, not sure if he's still around or not.








FYI, this is the un-zeroable SKS....

Is there anything in the VPC piece that is factually inaccurate?

The main points seem to be that the SKS is common and 7.62x39mm ammo penetrates conventional soft body armer. Both of which are true.

You could start with the dozen or so times they refer to a semi-automatic SKS as an "assault rifle."

Okay, and that's a valid critisism of the piece. Although you could argue that VPC is simply using the common usage definition rather than the technically definition of "assault rifle."

Does their misuse of the term "assult rifle" somehow discredit their claims that the SKS is one of the rifles used most often to kill police officers and that 7.62x39mm ammo penetrates conventional soft body armor?

The ATF report also notes that “these high capacity rifles pose an enhanced threat to law
enforcement, in part because of their ability to expel projectiles at velocities that are
capable of penetrating the type of soft body armor typically worn by the law
enforcement officers
.” Despite the hazard this assault weapon poses to police and the
public at large,



There is nothing "high capacity" about the SKS unless you refer to specific mods.

It is not an "enhanced threat" over any other rifle or carbine that can exceed 2000fps.




for 1998 through 2001,2 across the
country, one out of five law enforcement officers slain in the line of duty were killed
with assault weapons



I'm almost positive this has been proven false before. 1 out of 5 officers are killed by "long guns" there was no data I ever saw that classified them in any catagory as "assualt weapons" at least not from the FBI.


I can even present factual information in a completely biased and hyped up emotional way. If you can't understand the irritation that causes then it's deliberate or you agree I don't know which it is. I've seen you play this game before with the 5-7 hysteria that was going on. I'm not sure what your motive is for it.

That is why VPC et al call them "assault weapons" instead of assault rifles. There is no definition of assault weapon. Sometimes these groups and their supporters call high capacity pistols such as Glocks assault weapons.
