Since it was in TIME, you know it’s a fact:
LOL that’s right… 45 rounds per minute with a semi-automatic AR-15. People are apparently capable of pulling the trigger once every 1.33 seconds. Impressive… OH WAIT…
When people spout scary facts about guns which are hilariously wrong, even if it makes guns look scarier, I correct them just to make them feel dumb. If you can’t pull the trigger at least 2 time per second, you probably have arthritis or some other finger/joint issue. So at 2 rounds per second that would be 120 rounds per minute.
The icing on the cake though is truly the silhouette of the AK-47 they used.
Bravo TIME on your accurate reporting. *slow clap*
Maybe the graphic artist knew exactly what he/she was doing though? Recall the subtle Glock Grenade troll in TIME’s special ops edition. Ladies and gentlemen we might have pro-gun a mole-troll inside TIME.
