    it's a pet peeve of mine when an article, like one of the ones you quoted makes an error of fact in describing a rifle.  The last quote refers to the AR-15 as a "high-caliber" rifle.  The AR-15 has become kind of a gun hackers platform and can be reconfigured to fire just about anything, but the military issue AR-15 fires the small caliber .223/5.56x45mm round.  This is a high power, small caliber round made specifically to kill people by tumbling when it enters the body.

    These errors of fact provide nits the gun nuts cling to, allowing them to argue that we don't know what we're talking about.  That's why the quibble has some importance.

    We kidnap. We torture. It's our policy. Embrace it or end it!
