Battlefield.

Should American citizens be able to own military-grade weapons?
The gunman was chillingly accurate. A spokesman for the State Police said he left only one wounded survivor at the school. All the others hit by the barrage of bullets from the guns Mr. Lanza carried — the rifle was similar to a weapon used widely by troops in Afghanistan and Iraq — died, suggesting that they were shot at point-blank range.

Of course - "well-regulated militia", don't tread on me, toddlers must be armed as well, etc.

It's easy to be "chillingly accurate" when you're firing "from point-blank range." Which is it?

If it's a gun that's "similar to a weapon used widely by troops in Afghanistan and Iraq" and only works well at point-blank range, it's a piece of shit.

Somebody at the NYT other than most of their editorial page is incompetent. In other news, dog bites man.
