CNN on AR-15s
There are so many flagrantly wrong statements on this video:

CNN sucks

ETA: On CNBC this morning Jim Cramer said that AR-15s are made to hunt humans because they can't be used to hunt venison because they blow-up a deer's body.

Cramer the finance guy? Why would they ask him?

Please no one tell him what a 35 Whelen will do to a deer's body.

re: CNN on AR-15s
I saw an exchange on twitter where one guy defended ar's and that he used them to hog hunt. Someone then replied if there was any parts of the hog left after he shot it

Yes, him. They were talking about Dick's decision to no longer carry/sell ARs.

I'm fairly certain ole Jimbo has spent more hours in the woods and at the range that all of us combined with a statement such as that #sarcasm.

the dude has obviously made a lot of money, but I just can't listen to him. So much of the time, his views on the markets are so wrong it's laughable, yet he's an "expert".

It's amazing how that 223 round has so much power and that 30-06 round is so gentle on deer carcasses

I've been using the same AR 15 shells they shoot from an AC-130. Here's a nice Youtube video showing the size of them.

re: CNN on AR-15s
somebody should do a video where they hold .223, .7.62x39, 308, 30-06, 300 win, 50 BMG in their hand and then ask people which one they think the AR-15 shoots. I would be willing to bet my left nut that most guess 30-06 size bullets or better. Not to say that the .223 isn't deadly but it's hysterical that they think that the AR shoots these huge chunks of lead.

re: CNN on AR-15s
I took the family to DC this past Oct. for fall break. While at the Smithsonian Air and Space they had a display of ammo that different planes shoot and other weapons.

While my son and I were standing there looking at this guy and his adult son came up and were talking about which of those fit in an AR.

I don't remember exactly which one that they said it was but I pretty certain it was the 30mm that's used in the A-10.

My 11 year old heard them and just started laughing which made me laugh. I was almost embarrassed when my son said in a rather loud voice "what an idiot!" I kinda lost it after that...

I mean a 30mm round for an A-10 is only 11.5" in length. Perfectly capable of fitting in an AR

I'm pretty sure it would be the general consensus that a .223 is the absolute lightest caliber one should use to shoot a deer, if it isn't already considered too light. Personally I think a .243 is the lightest caliber that should be used.

WAFB called me today asking about Dick's decision and if we had plans to stop selling AR15s. I said since that's all we do it was highly unlikely. Then she wanted to come for an interview, which I declined.

Didn't realize the local news stations were on the rifle "assault" against our rights as well.
