Spray 'n' Pray

From the ├╝ber-reliable, objective VPC we learn:
Assault weapons did not "just happen."
In other news, toilet paper did not "just happen." Now back to our story...
They were developed to meet specific combat needs. All assault weapons, military and civilian alike, incorporate specific features that were designed to provide a specific military combat function. That military function is laying down a high volume of fire over a wide killing zone, also known as "hosing down" an area. Civilian assault weapons keep the specific design features that make this deadly spray-firing easy.
The next section explains why civilian semiautomatic assault weapons are no less deadly than military automatic assault weapons. In fact, they are arguably even more deadly.
The civilian versions are more deadly! That must have been those mean gun makers exploiting the "more deadly" loophole in the 1934 weapons act.
Another expert's explanation of the Army's reasoning sheds light on one of the principal dangers of assault weapons on civilian streets,"spray and pray" firing:
The studies showed spite of the huge amounts of money spent by the military services in training combat infantrymen to be marksmen, few were capable of firing effectively beyond ranges of 200 to 300 meters in the heat of battle. "Spray and pray" would come to be the practice on the future battlefields of Vietnam.
Only by John Kerry.
Bushmaster's version of the AR-15 achieved new heights of notoriety in 2002 when it was revealed that one model was the weapon used by the infamous Washington, DC-area snipers.
But they didn't use "spray and pray"!!! They obviously didn't read the VPC website. Boy will they feel stupid when they find out.
Pistol grips on assault rifles and shotguns help stabilize the weapon during rapid fire and allow the shooter to spray-fire from the hip position.
Musn't forget that proper spray-fire is done from the hip position. Of course the other expert in the field, the Brady Campaign, affirms what we and the VPC knew all along:
"Spray-firing" from the hip, a widely recognized technique for the use of assault weapons in certain combat situations, has no place in civil society. Although assault weapon advocates claim that "spray-firing" and shooting from the hip with such weapons is never done, numerous sources (including photographs and diagrams) show how the functional design features of assault weapons are used specifically for this purpose.
So let's have a look. Lemme see, the battle of Fallujah is probably a good place to start. Lots of close quarters combat, presumably lots of spray firing from the hip, since, we're told, they were trained by the military to "spray and pray." Here's the pictures I found of our troops:

I guess they didn't get the VPC memo that "spray and pray" is the new wave in combat effectiveness at close range.

The Israelis apparently didn't get the memo either

And neither did the Palestinians

You'll just have to take my word for it, but I didn't see a single example of "spray and pray" or firing from the hip in any photos that came up under Google searches for "iraq combat," "fallujah marines" or any such thing. Just check for yourself if you don't believe me.

Is it just me, or do the VPC and Brady Bunch get their info from Rambo movies?

Notice the proper VPC-approved spray 'n' pray technique. Rambo really knows how to lay down a high volume of fire over a wide killing zone, also known as "hosing down" an area. Excellent. US Army, Marines, Special Forces, please make a note of it. As it says, "No man, no law, no war can stop him." It must be the spray 'n' pray.

Perhaps the VPC and Brady bunch can help us all out with more carefully researched bits of wisdom. What a bunch of pudknucklers...

I'd better convert all of mine to full-auto just to be safe!

It is, after all, for the children...

I know this is kind of late, but I have to comment on the VPC's use of the phrase "even more deadly".

The correct wording should be "even deadlier" or just "deadlier". Saying "more deadly" is idiotic.

I noticed this in some of their other reports with phrasings such as "more and more deadly". It's similar to how a sixth grader writes.

Everyone should correct them when they do this.
