Muzzleloaders could be “the next bump stock,” and should be regulated, an anti-gun group said.
Washington, DC ? A gun control group showcased just how little firearms knowledge it really has on Wednesday, when it warned Americans about the catastrophic threat of muzzleloaders.
In a report titled, “Legal and Lethal: 9 Products That Could Be the Next Bump Stock,” former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’s anti-gun group unveiled a list of guns and products it deems have the potential to be converted into “military style weapons” in order to create “maximum carnage.”
“Cue the .50 caliber muzzleloader,” the report ominously introduced, “which delivers a particularly lethal .50 caliber round.”
“There’s actually a company that’s trying to jump through a loophole…and create a muzzle that can be shot with a silencer that shoots .50 caliber bullets. That can do a lot of damage,” New York City Council Member Jumaane Williams explained in a Thursday interview with Fox News.
Many of those with an actual understanding of muzzleloader mechanics found the report’s sweeping demonization of the weapons to be ludicrous, however.
In fact, it doesn’t seem that anyone can recall an instance when a muzzleloader was used to kill a single person within nearly a century, let alone a time when one was used in a mass shooting.
One reason these antique firearms have been less popular since the Civil War is because their operation is much more time-consuming than many modern weapons.
The shooter must load each round individually by placing gunpowder and a projectile into the barrel and packing it into place. A well-practiced shooter might be able to fire two rounds per minute.
