Congressional Study: Murder Rate Nearly Halved from 1994 as Gun Ownership Soared

Congressional Study: Murder Rate Nearly Halved from 1994 as Gun Ownership Soared

Well, that is conclusive proof that firearm ownership is NOT a factor in the homicide rate.

Twenty years of putting nonsense first

Twenty years of putting nonsense first
When your stock and trade is irrational logic, you publish the same stuff.An example of such irrationality was recently whelped by a politicized organization now called the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence (LCPGV). They were originally called the Legal Community Against Violence, though both names are misleading given that their stated goal is enacting lots of gun control laws, not anti violence laws. In a knee jerk reaction to a crazy person murdering people in a law firm one tragic day in San Francisco, this band of local liberal litigators took it upon themselves to develop novel theories, imposing liability on gun manufacturers for the criminal misuse of their products and inventing/promoting legislation designed to reduce the availability of guns. In the 20 years since then, they have effectively become the law firm for the gun ban lobby.

Aimpoint Pro Review

Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic or Aimpoint PRO is a scope especially made with police officers and tactical shooters in mind. It promises to have great technology that is great for the taking out to the field. Check out the specifications and quick user review to know if the Aimpoint Pro is worth all the buzz.

Technical Specs:

  • Hard-anodized matte black 30mm housing
  • Aluminium body
  • Recessed front class that is multi-coated
  • Special band-pass coating on the front lens
  • 1X magnification
  • Water resistant up to 150 feet
  • Works well in temperatures from -50 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit
  • 30,000 hour battery life

The Aimpoint Pro has the 1x magnification, similar to all Aimpoint Scopes optics. This allows the use of both eyes open and full peripheral vision, which is important for quicker acquisition of the target. The threaded front lens, transparent rear lens cap, unlimited eye relief and 2-minute-of-angle red dot are very useful features to police officers and expert marksmen.

The Aimpoint Pro is great for fast target acquisition because of its structure. It also has good adaptability. It can be mounted on the SIG 516 and can be used with most shotguns by simply removing the spacer under the mount. The Aimpoint Pro works with other magnifiers such as Lucid 2-5X and Samson 30mm, which is great for variety’s sake.

In terms of wear and tear, the Aimpoint Pro passed the “torture tests” that were ran in this review. Some parts of the test appeared silly but they had to be done to check if the Aimpoint Pro would survive.

First and as expected, it was used in various training drills of slow aimed shots and fast action shots to test accuracy and the use of lenses. At the same time, it was subjected to switching between magnifiers. The Aimpoint Pro was also put in the backseat of a car driven during a hot day and put in a freezer to test the temperature claims. Finally, it was dunked in a bucket of water to check for water resistance.

What was the result?
The optics, the housing and the general built did not falter. Of course, the beating would not be comparable to real life combat action, but given that the Aimpoint Pro remained unscratched and in mint condition, it was enough to impress.

In addition, the long battery life works wonders, too. No one can attest to the 30,000 or approximately 3 years of hour battery life yet but it is a good feature in itself.
There are not much points for improvement for the Aimpoint Pro. The only thing that could possibly be further developed is the magnification for long-range and pinpoint accuracy to enable police officers to take shots that are more precise without having to put on attachments.

All in all, the Aimpoint Pro delivers fast-action optic, durability and long battery life. The best part? Because it was made for police officers, the Aimpoint pro has all the expert engineering with a price that is reasonably fit for the law enforcement budget.
