Media incompetence strikes again, with a totally firearms ignorant "reporter" running his mouth about "bigger and stronger", & "big bullets" in reference to these smallbore .22 caliber center-fire rifles, which anyone familiar with firearms understands are on the smaller side of ammunition size, far from "big" in any way (not to mention that "carbine" is synonymous with a smaller, shorter rifle to begin with!). He poses smarmily with an unloaded carbine and refers to these as "semiautomatic", so we have to assume these are not true military "M-4" carbines, which are full-automatic/machinegun capable, but "civilian" clones of the M-4 (i.e. The same firearms anti-gun nuts & politicians intentionally lie about and "confuse" with machineguns to (wrongly) justify banning them for "civilian" possession)...(S9)
