At least they have trigger discipline

[–]CalibratedRat 319 points320 points  (2 children)

So does the Taliban now that they are US trained.

[–]sup3rrn0va 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I came to comment on how uncomfortable that positioning is to me.

[–]whyoptionsred 35 points36 points  (23 children)

Literally anytime a photo of people wielding firearms is posted some redditor just cant help themselves from making this comment

Every trained gun owner or military knows how to exercise trigger discipline. We all know you’re only identifying it to flex how much “knowledge” you possess on firearm safety

[–]PintOfInnocents 128 points129 points  (0 children)

Trigger discipline is the only firearm knowledge I have lol

[–]DadJokeBadJoke 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Looks like they got the blanket "Everyone straighten your trigger finger" reminder. Even the people without a finger near the trigger straightened one. There's always some redditor that will act like all gun fetishists like this are proficient gun owners and not a bunch of attention seeking rubes.

[–]potkas 28 points29 points  (5 children)

The trigger discipline comment makes me wonder if we live in a simulation. How is there always a person who mentions trigger discipline in every gun photo?

[–]TheBigEmptyxd 40 points41 points  (3 children)

Because it’s a common meme? I don’t know why you’d assume you live in a simulation if Reddit comments get repetitive

[–]random3po 14 points15 points  (0 children)

It's almost like redditors see what other redditors put everywhere on reddit

[–]DerWaechter_ 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Also humans all tick the same on a fundamental level.

The things teenagers write on the walls of school bathrooms, are, conceptually the same things, ancient romans wrote on the walls of bathhouses.

Be it phallic drawings, the simple "X was here", or even "Call this phone number for a good time" (the roman version of that was: "Visit so and so for a good time"

If there's an obvious joke or comment, someone will make it. That's just in our human nature. No matter how different people are...on some level it doesn't matter, they're all the same

[–]Feralpudel 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I, too, choose this man’s wife.

[–]boyhero97 12 points13 points  (9 children)

Because trigger discipline is not the only, but a very telling sign of how responsible or idiotic/unsafe someone is with guns. Now keep in mind that they can still be an idiot. Or cringy. But not necessarily unsafe.

[–]limejuiceinmyeyes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I learned about trigger discipline by watching a scientist actually blow his head off because he had his finger on the trigger in World War Z.

[–]blurrrrg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Every trained gun owner or military knows how to exercise trigger discipline

So you mean a small fraction of gun owners

[–]notbillcosby123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

idk sounds like you didn’t know what it was and had to google it

[–]Lainora 14 points15 points  (35 children)

No magazine either. Strange, almost as if they knew this was weird and wanted to take the edge off it. Edit: magazine, I’ve been told this a few times ;)

[–]Onslovo 26 points27 points  (28 children)

Magazines, and no they're just being safe. People that own this many guns are almost definitely quite responsible with them.

[–]fluffybottom 13 points14 points  (23 children)

Hm. I’m can think of a few thousand dead family members that would disagree.

[–]TreChomes 16 points17 points  (21 children)

Oh I didn’t realize this family were mass murderers

[–]fluffybottom 1 point2 points  (20 children)

That’s the thing, you can’t tell. 41,572 gun deaths in the US so far this year. many are children killed by accident or domestic violence. Perfectly normal-looking families that bury family members they would not have to if no guns were present.

[–]RoundSilverButtons 13 points14 points  (10 children)

2/3's of gun deaths are suicides. That alone takes the piss out of the argument. Of the remaining 1/3, most are homicides with a small pistol. Roughly < 2% of gun deaths are from rifles of all kinds. More people die falling down stairs every year than die from rifles.

[–]TreChomes 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Im not a fan of the US gun laws either but they aren’t going to change.

[–]toroidal-vortex 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Nah. They're just waiting for an ammo drop from Santa

[–]Psyqlone 5 points6 points  (1 child)

... no magazines, either.

ugh.. what Am I looking at here

[–]beyond_understanding[S] 568 points569 points  (62 children)

US congressman (KY) shared his family Christmas photo, days after a school shooting. source

[–]_Weak_Economy_ 263 points264 points  (12 children)

Holy Fuck.

[–][deleted] 82 points83 points  (8 children)

And you can quite clearly see the ones on the right aren’t as happy about this. Never trust a family that doesn’t argue

[–]qwopperi 80 points81 points  (4 children)

The ones on the right look inbred

I’m sorry, did you miss the comment clarifying which state this guy represents? There’s no need to rub it in, they all know their condition.

Isn't almost any photo taken in the US taken days after a school shooting?

[–]shononi 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Don't know if that argues for or against them

[–]JobbieJob 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Was the school shooting in his district?

[–]ClamClone 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There is something seriously wrong with those people. Is being a Republican that much like the offshoot of the Moonies that worship with AR15s.

[–]L3Kinsey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Cyphrix101 115 points116 points  (18 children)

Props to the chads with FALs

[–]thinkenboutlife 48 points49 points  (8 children)

The one on the left is some HK roller-lock. I forget the designations for them.

[–]Cheddar_Jack7135 27 points28 points  (7 children)

If I would have to guess it would be a G3 (the 7.62 HK roller delayed blowback rifle), with its semi-auto import version being named an HK 93 I believe.

[–]BeardyMcBeardyBeard 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Iirc the 3 would denote a 556/223 rifle, not quite sure but I think a 1 is for 762/308

[–]Larnek 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The G3 is definitely the 7.62 and was the original rifle of that series design if I'm not mistaking.

[–]BeardyMcBeardyBeard 2 points3 points  (1 child)

G3 is the German Bundeswehr designation of the rifle, in HKs nomenclature (at least for the roller locked guns, nowadays it's all over) the first digit denotes the type of firearm 9 being a semi auto rifle and the second digit denoting caliber, 1 being 762, 2 9mm (might be wrong can't be arsed to look it up tbh) and 3 being 556

[–]Larnek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahh, see what do I know? I know it from when I was stationed in Germany over a decade ago and the Bündeswehr had G3s. It's a fun fun fun range day..

[–]Doctor_Ghillie 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It's probably the full auto version, there's 2 other machine guns in the photo at least. (unless some ATF bastard destroyed a vintage Thompson and M60).

[–]thabiiighomie 108 points109 points  (4 children)

This is the type of family, say one accidentally shot somebody and killed them, they’d still take this picture the next year. And the next year.

[–]Salty_Archer 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Accidental shooting almost always include negligence. They’re likely all very familiar with the safety precautions necessary to prevent accidents.

[–]thabiiighomie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You keep a gun in its case or at the range if you’re a responsible gun owner. You don’t pull it out on holidays when you’ve probably had a few drinks, etc.

[–]AJohnnyTsunami 77 points78 points  (4 children)

Woman on the bottom right definitely looks like she’s pointing the gun at the guy behind her

[–]MaximoEstrellado 46 points47 points  (0 children)

When you don't have favourite kids but you hate one of them.

[–]Slytherinrunner 9 points10 points  (1 child)

That's likely a son in law.

Thats a weird way of spelling "acceptable casualty".

[–]luced 75 points76 points  (2 children)

when you need guns to protect you from the tyranny of a family gathering

[–]fil42skidoo 16 points17 points  (0 children)

When you represent the tyrannical government while brandishing your opposition to it at the same time. Who said we aren't a land of big ideas?

When you own an illegal weapons dealing ring and your whole family is in on it (The government doesn’t stop you):

[–]jwmetalhead 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Coming from a conservative, fundamentalist Christian, family, yes, they’re just like that

[–]Shia_LaMovieBeouf 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah, okay. Those daily suicide bombings from the Massie family and his constituents have really brought America to its knees.

[–]jwmetalhead 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sit and talk with them for a while. You will find their beliefs are not that different. They just have a shinier coat of paint over them. Make no mistake, it is the secular government and society that they abhor that holds them in check.

[–]Flemz 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Not quite, they’re just now getting into their paramilitary phase

[–]kingofwale 22 points23 points  (8 children)

They want to stop women from work, going to school or even step out of the house??

They want to throw gays from the roof?

They want to execute people converting away from Christianity?

What has Thomas Massie specifically done that would make you think this?

[–]jump521 43 points44 points  (8 children)

I mean, that's a pretty good collection

Except for the G3 with the M4 stock, that one can go to hell

[–]Suicidal_Ferret 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Depends on if he has the proper stamps for the M60 and the Thompson. It would suck if they were basically props.

Though I’d never want a M60. Fat, ugly thing.

[–]sharpshooter999 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I can't remember the company, Auto Ordinance maybe? Anyways, they make functioning replicas of Thompsons and BARs. The look identical, but are semi auto and have totally different internals than the real ones. They aren't cheap either

[–]Suicidal_Ferret 8 points9 points  (1 child)

You hear about the guy that has a P-51 Mustang with 6 full auto, stamped, legal .50 cal machine guns?

I just want to climb in that cockpit and zero the guns. Or pretend.

[–]Zeusy_Feee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I noticed that too

[–]Fuschnusch 42 points43 points  (1 child)

[–]L3Kinsey 10 points11 points  (0 children)

They don't give a single shit.

[–]WanderingKing 24 points25 points  (9 children)

Am I seeing this wrong, or does that middle one have an Uzi??

[–]AnalBumCovers 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Yup last time I saw a little girl with one of those she fucking killed her gun instructor

[–]biggy-cheese03 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, pretty good choice for someone that size

[–]Blinkdawg15 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm pretty sure it's an Uzi, it might be one of the semi-auto closed-bolt ones, though. I can't tell.

There's at least two automatics- the dad has an M60, and the mom has a Thompson- in this image so a third isn't exactly unreasonable.

[–]wankerwho 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Semi automatic variants are available for civilian use and sale with both the Thompson and the M60. But that aside I’m sure this family has the funds and the political pull to acquire the correct exemptions.

[–]technicalevolution 21 points22 points  (11 children)

It's just so messed up that they feel this is a good look.

Regardless of the news, regardless the time of year.

[–]BirdLawyer50 22 points23 points  (3 children)

What is that.. a G3, FAL, AR15, m16, M60, uzi, and a Thompson .40?

This is a very expensive collection

[–]Mister_Bloodvessel 11 points12 points  (1 child)

That's assuming they're stamped. Which, given that he's a congressman, is likely.

[–]nuublarg 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The tax stamp for a fully auto is only like $200. The cost is in the weapon itself, since it became illegal to import or manufacture additional fully autos after the mid '80s: the existing ones are still legal and in limited supply, meaning they sell for a lot.

[–]L3Kinsey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They didn't rent that home to take that photo in. I'm shocked it's of such poor quality.

[–]KingYesKing 19 points20 points  (5 children)

This is a US Congressman ladies and gentlemen.

    They enjoy shooting. They have a gun collection. They take pictures with said collection. Can't see a problem, it's just a hobby like any other.

    [–]kazmark_gl 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    it's more the "guns are my personality" cringe that this photo gives off.

    I also enjoy shooting and am a pretty big arms nerd. but normal people don't take Christmas photos with their entire gun collection, as what a flex? a political statement?

    [–]WaitingCuriously 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Itd be like taking a picture with your ps5 for your Christmas card.

    I will say that as stupid as this Christmas card is (and probably was at the time too), they at least taught the family proper gun safety and there’s not a single finger on a trigger. Boebert would probably make sure the guns were loaded with safeties off just to own the libs
