Which Statement is True About Fully automate Firearms?
One of the most popular arguments against guns is that “A fully-automatic firearm is not a real gun.” This argument is based on the misconception that an automatic firearm is automatically loaded with bullets when the trigger is pulled. The fact is that the fire control button must be manually moved to ” Fully-automatic” in order for the gun to shoot. Once the finger has been lifted from the trigger, the gun does not have a bullet in it. In order for a semi-automatic firearm to be categorized as a fully-automatic firearm, the trigger must be manually moved for more than a fraction of a second.
Another argument against guns is that they cause more deaths than cars every year. The fact is that cars cause less deaths than firearms do each year. However, the rate of increase for car deaths is significantly lower than the rate of increase for firearm deaths. This means that a car is much safer than a firearm.
Finally, some people claim that fully-automatic and semi-automatic fire-arms cause more death than non-firearms. This claim is simply not true. Both fully-automatic and semi-automatic fire-arms cause death if the trigger is improperly pulled, if the gun fires when it is not loaded, or if the user is unable to properly operate the gun. In other words, if it can be logically deduced that a death would result from using a non-firearm, then it could be deduced that a fully-automatic firearm could cause the same death.
So which statement is true about fully-automatic firearms? As a general rule, the “A” category is considered to be any type of firearm that shoots multiple projectiles with a single pull of the trigger. In short, this type of firearm is a cross between a fully-automatic firearm and a semi-automatic firearm. The classification can also include pump guns.
Now let’s look at the second statement. According to the National Shooting Association, this statement is false. While there are no guarantees, shotguns and lever action rifles are generally more safe than fully-automatic firearms. In fact, the NSSFA notes that there is a much higher level of safety for lever action rifles than for any other type of semi-automatic firearm. However, all shotguns have the potential to kill a person if the “bullet” doesn’t go straight to the brain.
Which statement is true about fully-automatic firearms? The short answer is that no one has yet proven conclusively that they are less dangerous than traditional firearms. Both statements are accurate, as no one can say for sure which type of firearm is more dangerous than another. However, both statements are equally true. Research both types of firearms to determine which one is right for you.
