I don’t know but I suspect there is one aspect that few have considered as a result of the fiasco in Afghanistan. Consider: we left thousands of M16 rifles behind during the Biden retreat. Some of those just might end up being for sale to those coming up through the Mexican border.
May I remind one and all that the M16 is a true assault rifle. It is able to fire fully automatic with the flip of a switch. It looks very similar to an AR15, a semi automatic which the FOCs are trying to outlaw. I have fired an M16 fully automatic as part of my training. It takes a second or two to fire twenty bullets. Magazines are available that hold 70 bullets, and it takes about a second and a half to change magazines.
No truly law abiding citizen would ever try to buy something like that, but the criminal element would certainly love to get their hands on a few of those things, along with a few thousand bullets. I would say I can only imagine what the criminal type could do with something like that, but I can’t. Three or four men with these things could do things even I can’t imagine, especially if they know how to use them.
So now, we can thank our fearless leader for the possibility of the criminal element using M16s on our police or crowds or whatever they can imagine. However, it doesn’t end there. There are likely also machine guns and 50 caliber guns that can shoot through engine blocks and hit a target a mile away. I would suspect there are also a few other things in there, like anti tank weapons and M79 grenade launchers.
I am going to terminate my imagination there. It already bothers me far to much. Regardless, if these things find their way north of the border, we’ll know it. If they are used on the Mexican authorities, they will know it. If any of this makes its into Canada, they will definitely know it.
It is the sort of thing that happens when people like Biden don’t think ahead. Well, in this case, he likely was not thinking at all. YEP! This mistake will not go away with an eraser! I sure wish it could.
