Defense Secretary Panetta: Ignorant Fudd on Firearms

"I mean who the hell needs armor-piercing bullets except you guys in battle?" 
 Oh but it's ok. he's a lifelong hunter:
 "I've been duck hunting since I was 10-years-old. I love to hunt and I love to be able to share that joy with my kids. But for the life of me, I don't know why the hell people have to have an assault weapon."
Why that's the same thing that IANSA got (alleged) hunters to say before they did sweeping bans in Australia that continue to be expanded today. 

 So we've got a 'Defense Secretary' that doesn't actually know much about firearms except what he's been told about by the Clinton and Obama administrations.

I feel safer now.

Someone should tell him that AP bullets are already banned (with the exception of .223, to keep people from being unwitting felons with all that SS109 running around) and are not used in crime to speak of.

But, hey.

He's got a military background - it's thus unsurprising that he doesn't know jack-all about civilian guns, or is a gunnie.

A whole lot of people in the services know their issue firearm enough to meet requirements, and that's it.

"Duck hunting". Always duck hunting.
