Col. Brackett, being a Retired military man I think you must know what an assault rifle is but there are an awful lot of people who only hear the words and have no idea what it really means. It would be a service to our country if you would fully explain the meaning of an assault rifle. Is it one that fires a bullet? More than one or two bullets without reloading? 5, 10, just how many does it take to make it an assault rifle, and does it have to to be a rifle. What about a pistol, a shot gun? What actually are you talking about?

Ms. Matchett, do you know what an automatic weapon is? Was that what was used in this latest shooting, or do you know? Are you just repeating the media and political rhetoric? Do you just have to pull the trigger once, multiple times, once for each shot? What makes a weapon “automatic”?

Can we please stop with the political BS and be truthful for once. What is being done with the speech going on about guns in wake of the shooting is not “free speech”, but more like yelling “fire” in a crowded theater. It is done with the intention of causing panic among the uninformed and those to lazy to educate themselves and that is being done with the intention of rushing through new laws that will give the government more control over our lives and take away our Constitutional freedoms.

Beware people, we are about to become “share croppers” to the government “overseers”.
