Re: And Again!
Christopher Ransom, wielder of the fake gun. He will be charged with murder in the death of Detective Brian Simonsen. Problem solved. Case closed.

A felony murder charge is applied when a death occurs during the commission of another crime. There obviously should be an investigation into the shooting but the charge isn't out of the ordinary.

Re: And Again!
All my US law education is from the University of Law & Order, that's where I've heard it referred to as felony murder.

Re: Dayton Shooting
The images illustrate why assault rifles are so much more deadly than normal firearms, because of what the bullets do once they enter the body.

there are multitudes of non assault rifles that fire 5.56NATO/.223REM. Being fired from an M-4 doesn't make a round more deadly than an identical one fired from a REM700.

Re: Dayton Shooting
Though the round is not more deadly because of the gun, the particular gun can make it more destructive.

Tell that to Percy. He seems to think that the danger of assault rifles comes from the round they fire. And yes depending on the model a REM 700 probably has a longer barrel length than an M-4, giving it a greater muzzle velocity.

Re: Dayton Shooting
That does not mitigate the destructive power on humans of the round.

I'm not saying it does. Percy said in the message that i was replying to that

The images illustrate why assault rifles are so much more deadly than normal firearms, because of what the bullets do once they enter the body

I'm trying to tell him that he's wrong, that a bullet fired from an assault rifle is not more deadly than one fired from a hunting rifle.

You seem to want to be a little pedantic

As Percy (and everyone else) can see from the current flood geology thread with Faith, it's a little annoying trying to have a discussion with someone who doesn't know what they are talking about.

Re: Dayton Shooting
In my view we don't need weapon/ammunition combos that cause such massive bodily harm. They should be off limits to civilians.

so you want to take away all the hunting rifles as well.
