Ok yippee, first off, guns (and scopes) like that are extremely expensive. Second even with that technology, its still a extremely difficult shot-its not something Joe blo can just grab a gun and go out there and do, its going to take practice. AMD let's throw ammo into it, store bought ammo is not likely going to do it, it will take a handloading, and practice, lots of it. And someone who knows how to set up a spider hold without being caught, with a line of sight to trump, with foreknowledge of where he's going to be. This is something unlikely to be pulled off by anyone other then a military grade sniper. Your notion that it can be done by someone with "no training at all" is absurd, someone with no training at all would just buy store bought ammo and likely barely know which end of the gun goes downrange, not alone how to use that fancy, expensive, hard to come by scope (not to mention the expensive, hard to come by 1 mile gun)
And even assume that your "right" that a person can be put in place to take a shot from that distance, what is he going to shoot? A wall. That's because if you didn't happen to notice, most public speaking events are in places like stadiums with no line of sight out to that distance.
I hope this weekend to finish the book on Enoch I'm reading and start on a book on DNA. Besides that, I'm going to enjoy my 3-day weekend with my wife, dogs and fixing my car, if the relay comes from Amazon comes in time. I really appreciate Amazon's breath of products, customer reviews and quality service. I might even get some shooting done at the range. Hope you all have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. [NASB, John 15:13]
How much more is the love of Jesus for us that He laid down His life for us who were not yet His friends? And let us never forget this Memorial Day the ultimate sacrifice of our men and women in service to this country, who put their lives on-hold, and on the line for all of us. God bless them, their families and friends.
