Happening now the Obama administration is trying to trample all over your second amendment rights and I think part of it.
Has to do with the fact that they're just not really well educated a lot of people when it comes to understanding the difference between.
Various firearms -- let not your heart be troubled we're about to give those people a lesson.
And -- this we go to the NRA shooting range in Fairfax Virginia where world champion -- Jessie Duff.
-- Steny why do give us a demonstration.
Jesse no idea.
Congratulations -- that shot Harry you I'm good.
-- so what do you got for us tonight we're gonna start with an -- We are actually I have a wide variety firearms they are all semiautomatic.
They differ in appearance.
And -- but they all have the same function.
And I'm gonna demonstrate that by shooting three rounds out of -- just to show the semiautomatic capabilities.
And also go -- a little bit of their -- -- and I'm gonna start with probably one of the most popular -- in the US right now thanks to all the media attention.
And that's the AAR 15223.
Caliber semiautomatic rifle.
Not -- this is -- -- that I he's in competition myself and I know everyone says -- so big and scary but that's simply.
These are cosmetic features that have no bearing on the firearms functions at all and just wanna go -- -- usually click.
This one is this is the pistol grip that everybody's talking about and that's simply just for stability it helps me maneuver -- state of competition has no bearing on how to spot and how this firearm functions.
These rails these are just or attachments maybe a flashlight another -- something to ease -- competition.
Disco right here is in competition I shouldn't target house five and 600 yards -- they have to see it it's this is not a collapse of us talk about that that is one of the -- one of the features that they discussed.
And that's just to make it.
A better size to fit you.
Burned for instance my -- young nephew harvested his first year about a month ago with my competition -- -- and he was able to make this pick him and I think.
One of the reasons this is so popular.
It's such an easy -- issued its lightweight it's maneuverable and has no recall whatsoever -- -- real quick city you can see the impact in the target that it won't make.
-- right now that is.
The L apparently I -- I want it everyone is wanting to ban I want to see what what you hit that when we get it -- shot -- -- I get half OK so he's designating.
I'm only -- innuendo that's the -- that was a good job.
-- -- -- plan to Atlanta right you you you're that that a.
And yet I debt as of right -- payment okay he's right what the next I've -- -- you this is a more traditional hunting rifle.
But just like they are fifteen -- distribute it as a semiautomatic rifle meaning.
I had to pull the trigger each time like you just saw now this is a Browning thirty -- six caliber semiautomatic rifle.
And this is use more -- and honing this is a popular around just because.
At its capabilities out long range distances on big game in the US so I'll show you that one.
There we don't that's the -- -- You -- a little -- on that last shot but that's -- I think I know I probably -- just a little -- irrational.
Okay the next demonstrate a firearm this is a Beretta twelve gauge shotgun and it is a semiautomatic.
Just like the -- out six and just like they are fifteen.
What I'm gonna show you is two different -- one of the slide and won as a waterfowl around now keep in mind this as some men that I he's in competition as well our shooter than -- -- 212 gauge semiautomatic.
And this is.
It's good for honing recreational shooting and also.
A competitions like I -- -- let me show -- that for a quick.
-- -- up as you can see.
We have some different sizes and not a cow lovers here -- you why I can go down -- -- here really quick.
Now though that that they don't want to show you the two to -- the big bad scary rifle air fifteenth this is the impact that the project Tom made out of that.
As you can see over here we have the third -- sex is obviously a lot better than air fifteen.
This slide is a lot bigger than at thirty out six and -- than -- fifteen and then the last.
I mean you can see the difference.
What I wanted to show you.
Was that this is the least of your worries out of everything that I fire today and this is what is trying this is -- trying to -- -- -- -- Didn't hear what the last -- umpire act was not mentioned in the -- I'm -- as -- last that you -- was not mentioned in the band correct.
The one that the -- and semiautomatic.
Right yet correct correct.
That the shotgun was not -- in the band.
And this is the damage it does as compared today -- -- air fifteen.
TT very -- which is trying to be -- you have a quick chance to show us the nine millimeters semiautomatic pistol I didn't I didn't I can do that really quick a cut.
I what -- to -- is I have a Browning hi power semiautomatic.
And insists it's a very popular I handgun around the world and how we'll show you.
Just what the caliber does itself -- It.
You can see that one and I can -- ages 45 as well I'm just this is a cult 1911.
It's a Simeon semi automatic as well and I use this in competition and got its name because it was designed in 1911.
A hundred years ago.
And it's still this is what I used today.
-- Well they -- don't realize that I'm betting on you not bode deal.
But that's great shooting the biggest stage one last question before I let you go.
A lot of people here these names in here semi auto man are they really afraid of them and.
There's so many weapons that you're what you really saying is there's no method logical reason to what it is that they're banning is that a fair statement.
I believe that would be a fair statement it's the the things that you spoke about earlier with -- Hutchinson.
It's all cosmetics -- has no bearing on the firing.
The functioning of an air fifteen and it's strictly.
For me to help meet their competition and doesn't make it big -- scary are worse than one without those features.
I believe that as a -- saint.
I just had very very informative your great show.
And I look forward to that that would both thank you -- -- Thank you.
