    Dallas Ambush Rifle was an SKS?

    Why has the media been blaming the AR platform all week...

    Rifle used in Dallas Ambush was a common SKS; not Assault Rifle or “Assault Weapon”

    The rifle used by the Dallas sniper was an antique East Block rifle designed in the 1940’s, an SKS.
    The SKS was considered obsolete by the Soviet military in 1956, 60 years ago.
    It is a simple semi-automatic design that does not use detachable magazines and holds 10 rounds of ammunition. It uses the intermediate powered 7.62 x 39 cartridge, about as powerful as the .30-30, a common deer cartridge in the United States for a hundred and twenty years. From nbcnews.com:
    Dallas police said Friday that detectives found bomb making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition and “a personal journal of combat tactics” in Johnson’s home.
    Johnson used a SKS rifle and a handgun in the attack, multiple law enforcement sources told NBC News.
    The SKS was imported to the U.S. by the millions as surplus from Russia, China, and other former East Block countries. Billions of rounds of ammunition were imported.


    When relations with first China, then the former East Block countries were normalized, trade deals were struck. U.S. consumers got sturdy and simple utility rifles and inexpensive ammunition. China and the former East block got billions of desperately needed dollars.

    The SKS is a reliable multi-purpose rifle that is used for hunting across the United States. In the law, it is treated the same as other rifles, even in the extremely restrictive state of California.

    The rifle has a wood stock, no pistol grip, is not black, does not have a muzzle brake, or a threaded barrel. None of those things change the basic effectiveness of the rifle very much.

    It is not the rifle, but the man that makes the greatest difference. Any hunting rifle could have been used to about the same effect by the Dallas sniper. Designs from the 1880’s would have been as effective for the tactics employed.

    He used basic military tactics and skills. Those skills are known to tens of millions of Americans. The military tactics can be leaned in a couple of weekends.

    Marksmanship may take a little longer, but can be learned with a simple air rifle. The Chinese use air rifles to teach their school children the marksmanship skills required. Those air rifles are cheap, and have been imported into the United States in large numbers...

    All guns are bad and to blame.And white privilege of course.
    whenever a POS uses a gun to kill it's the guns fault.
    if he uses a bomb made out a pressure cooker, pipes,poison, cars, arson or anything else that's different.

      Witnesses claim he had a vest full of magazines. Did the rifle have the AK magazine conversion installed?

              They already said he had a "military style" red dot. What the fuck does that even mean? The ignorant eat it up too. That's the worst part.
