Can somebody provide me with a link to any of the discussions where the comparison between the North Hollywood Bank Robbers and the sniper in either WW1 or WW2 is posted....I've been looking all over today for it...trying to educate some idiots at school

Bank robbers = illegally converted full autos, spraying all over the place.

Sniper = precise shot, usually from a hidden position; in WW1 a bolt action, 5 shot rifle.

What exactly is there to compare????????????????????????

I think he may be talking about comparing the armor on the bank robbers to the armor of a WWI Sniper...German snipers and machine gunners had an elaborate full set of armor, consisting of a brow plate for the helmet, chest protector, cod piece, etc....making them somewhat invulnerable from the front....

I can't remember the sniper's name, but the effect of the statement was that the firearm's are not dangerous, it's dependant on the operator. The North Hollywood bank robbers fired over 1200 rounds and killed nobody, whereas the Sniper from WW1 or WW2 fired xx times killing xx Germans and capturing more....I read about it in a thread on here in the last few days, but I cannot find it now...Can't remember where I saw it and am looking for a link back to that thread....If anyone knows what thread it was in, I would appreciate the assistance

Simply use Sgt. Alvin York as the WW1 example.
