Today we again got him talking off-script after he promoted the Al Qaeda 'fully-automatic assault rifles at gun shows' video. I asked him if he endorsed that belief:
@TrailerDays No, but assault rifles with full auto conversion kits + manuals can be bought w/o background checks.Well never mind the 'assault rifles' gaff, I mentioned that real 'conversion kits' are regulated by the BATFE just like machineguns. He tried to move the goalposts:
@BrisketChuckle @TrailerDays I watched my buddy buy an AK-47 w/o a background check in Dayton, OH, same again in Richmond, VA
@BrisketChuckle @TrailerDays And I found conversion kits and manuals so commonly I honestly forgot where.After reminding him it wasn't an 'AK-47, I asked him where these 'kits' were:
@TrailerDays @BrisketChuckle Glad the "real" ones are regulated! Tough to find an example of "fakes" b/c transactions go without paperworkWell Linoge jumped in and asked him why there weren't tons of illegal machinegun convictions each year if they were so 'common'. He tried to move the goalposts again:
@BrisketChuckle @linoge_wotc @TrailerDays But right, we don't see "arrests-headlines galore" - could that mean registration systems works?Well I couldn't let that one pass by:
@clgoddard @BrisketChuckle @linoge_wotc But you just said the kits are unregulated so there should be conversions galore. Where are they?After flailing around a bit more when asked where all these kits were, his final response was this:
@linoge_wotc they're not advertized online but on tables at gun showThat's right. Super secret products sold ONLY at gun shows put on exclusively for Akmed the Dead Terrorist and his friends to come and blow up Americans for NRA profits.
I'll be honest. I've seen those 'conversion kits' and 'manuals'. At best, they are do-hickeys designed to bump-fire the gun. At worst, they're more likely to be death traps to the operator of said 'converted' gun than to have it firing full auto.
But Colin doesn't know the difference of any of it. Once he gets off the controlled scripts provided to him at press conferences, he's completely lost and he comes across as just a pretty face w/ a sad story, reliant exclusively on talking points and sound bites, all of which we've demolished before.
