    If a criminal is shooting so long that the barrel shroud makes a difference...

    ...the problem is not the barrel shroud.

    •  No. Of course not. (1+ / 0-)

      That's why we should absolutely ignore the barrel shroud.

      Because a competent criminal wouldn't need it.

      Or whatever.

      It's not as if a hunter would need to fire so many rounds without changing guns.

      Or a target shooter.

      No. Not at all.

        According to expert gun-uncontrol testimony before Congress, young moms prefer the AR-15 over all other weapons. This is because the scary-looking barrel shroud will scare off some burglers. But when burglers are not scared off, she will need the barrel shround and her 30+ round magazines to hold off their desperate onrushes as five or more robbers come at her in h=uman-wave banzai attacks.

        Because as well all know, burglers fight for an eternal cause, not just are on the lookout for something valuable and light enough to carry.

      •  Target shooters, yes. (2+ / 0-)

        I often shoot several hundred rounds at a range session.  That'll make a barrel hot even on cool winter days here in Arizona.  

        Having the fore-stock materieal wrap around the top of the barrel doesn't affect crime.

        Unless, of course, you can prove it does.

        We'll wait....
