Some Moo Moo Ruminations on Assault Style Rifles

On October 1, 2017, Stephen Craig Paddock, a 64-year-old Nevada resident, after secretly
hauling 23 rifles and one handgun to a room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Resort in
Las Vegas, opened fire on concert-goers below.  He killed 58 and wounded 851 (were some
of the injured trampled?).  He was the lone shooter and he could only fire one rifle at a time.
The other 22 stayed on the floor or wherever - some of the rifles were mounted on tripods.   
1 or 23 rifles do not determine the number of victims.  A new or well maintained modern
rifle seldom malfunctions and even if one does, a second rifle will continue killing.  No need
for 23 - the man was going out of his mind.  So what killed and wounded so many people?

HE HAD THOUSANDS OF ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION!  Official sources state that he fired over
1100 rounds although the exact number is not published.  Assuming a hit rate of 1 in 3
shots, he must have fired close to 3000 rounds.  Even if he was an expert shooter, he had
to fire 900 rounds.   He shot from 300-400 yards and at that range the 5.56 mm bullet is not
expected to pass through a victim - indeed the anti-personnel soft nose bullet is designed
to flatten or fragment upon impact and the pieces will "bounce" inside the body to cause
maximum shock.  If some of the injured were trampled so fewer rounds perhaps.  Although
he made trajectory drawings to increase accuracy, it was impossible to have a
1:1 hit ratio because the shooter let loose automatic fire at some distance on a outdoor
gathering of 20,000.   We now know that he had semi-automatic "civilian" rifles of both .223
(5.56mm NATO) and .308 (7.62mm NATO) calibers.  Furthermore, he used bump-stocks to
convert the AR-15 type .223 rifles to automatic fire.  The AR-15 type rifles share a common
design with the military M-16 rifle which is quite capable of selective automatic fire of 600
rounds per minute.

As the crowd began to scatter, he likely switched to semi-automatic mode.  By then the
crowd were running and hiding some among the bodies and so were even harder to hit.   
After it was all over, investigators found another 1600 rounds in the trunk of his car.  
Another 19 firearms were found in his home.

An U. S. infantry rifleman normally carries into a fire-fight 7 magazines of 5.56 mm NATO for
his or her M-16.  Each magazine holds 30 rounds = 210 rounds basic combat load.   Larger
capacity magazines are deemed unwieldy and difficult to fire prone.  Reloading an AR-15
style rifle by changing pre-loaded magazines or even using 10 round stripper-clips to load
the magazine is simple and quick.  The typical police officer carries a loaded semi-automatic
pistol with 2 extra magazines totaling around 40-50 rounds.  Statistically, a "gunfight"
involving police officers is at close quarters (say 1-5 yards), involve less than ten rounds
fired and is over in a few seconds.  Unfortunately, a lone officer approaching in his or her
police cruiser or on foot is tactically "outgunned" by a determined rifleman armed with an
AR-15 and carrying hundreds of rounds of 5.56mm or even quite possibly a battle rifle
chambered for 7.62 mm NATO rounds.  It is interesting to note that the larger 7.62 mm
cartridge was discarded for general infantry use because its heavier recoil made the rifle
difficult to control especially in automatic select fire and troops complained about the
weight of the 7.62 mm battle rifles (the most infamous perhaps being the "Right Arm of the
Free World," the FN FAL
Fusil Automatique Léger and not the M-14), especially when
operating in difficult terrain.  The Las Vegas shooter had both calibers in his sprawling
luxury suite.

Ammunition whether 5.56 mm or 7.62 mm at close range will penetrate the sides of
approaching police (civilian) vehicles (and also many non-military body armor).  The
average distance of fire-fights between infantry troops is up to ranges of 200 yards
(although recent urban combat experience may lower the fighting distance).  Assault rifles
are designed for that statistic in mind with sliding rear "iron-sights" elevating usually out to
a "maximum effective range" of 600 yards (the Las Vegas shooter was killing people at
around 500 yards albeit shooting down from the 32nd floor elevation.    One can imagine
the carnage the 5.56 mm round will inflict at close quarters such as inside a classroom.  
These morbid data are available to anyone who wants to know about them but what are we
doing about it?  Amazing isn't it that a civilian can hoard thousands of rounds of
ammunition.  And for what purpose?  Did anyone raise an eyebrow at the heavy cases he
was hauling up to his hotel room?   And no one asks questions when a teenager buys
hundreds of rounds of rifle ammunition?   
You figure this one.

A Morbid Perspective from History:   A hundred years ago, on Sunday, April 13, 1919,
Colonel (serving a temporary command as Brigadier General before that rank was
abolished in 1921) Reginald Dyer became convinced that a major insurrection was brewing
in Amritsar, Punjab.  He banned all meetings but his order was not widely disseminated. It
was the day of Baisakhi, a main Sikh festival, and many villagers had gathered inside a
walled compound called the Jallianwala Bagh (Orchard).  On hearing that a meeting had
started, Dyer set out with Sikh, Gurkha, Baluchi, and Rajput troops from 2-9th Gurkhas, the
54th Sikhs and the 59th Sind Rifles to a raised bank and ordered them to shoot from less
than 200 yards into the crowd without giving the civilians prior warning.  Dyer continued the
firing for about ten minutes, until the ammunition supply was almost exhausted. Dyer
claimed that 1,650 rounds had been fired, a number apparently derived by counting empty
cartridge cases picked up by the troops (I think this seems a low estimate).  Official British
Raj sources gave a figure of 379 identified dead and approximately 1,100 wounded. The
casualty number estimated by the Indian National Congress was more than 1,500 injured,
with approximately 1,000 dead  But again some of the victims may have been trampled and
some of the dead were found in a well.  It took a reinforced platoon of 90 British Army
trained riflemen 10 minutes to fire the reported 1650 rounds (averages to 2 rounds per
minute).   The infantrymen under Dyer's command used what is now the obsolete
Lee Enfield (SMLE) chambered for the British .303 rifle cartridge.  The Lee Enfield was bolt action and had a detachable box magazine of 10 rounds and could sustain a rate of fire of
20-30 rounds per minute depending on the fortitude and ability of the rifleman (hence the qualifying "Mad Minute").   This notorious rifle was state-of-the-art in 1919 within the British
Raj and variants continued service through World War II and even well after 1945 (including the so-called "jungle carbine" that saw service in the Malayan Emergency 1948-1960) due
to the tradition bound British High Command; other Armies have switched to semi-automatic, e.g. the U.S. M1 Garand battle rifle, or the selective fully automatic, e.g. the
SturmGewehr (literally German for "Assault Rifle") StG 44 and improvements of that prototype.  

From the available news photos, the Las Vegas shooter had supersized magazines for 100 rounds.  He also had bump-stocks.  The U.S. military standard issue magazine is 30 rounds
(any larger magazine is considered too heavy and unwieldy for the rifle in the field).  The national passion, indeed fixation, for assault style guns, large capacity magazines, and the
unlimited stockpiling of ammunition is getting our children massacred.   If the NRA has the death grip on selling guns, one alternate solution is to limit the purchase of ammunition to
e.g. 1 retail box (20 rounds max) anytime and resupply only by turning in spent cartridges (or other evidence that they have fired the ammunition in the field).   There is simply no
reason for anyone to stockpile hundreds/thousands of rounds of combat ammunition.  The Las Vegas shooter by himself fired over 1100 rounds in less than a quarter of an hour,
outdoing General Dyer at Amritsar.  Kim Jong Un of North Korea is not in a position to invade the USA because he does not have a blue-water navy.  Our children are being
massacred by their neighbors armed with assault caliber rifles.  
Do we love our guns more than our children?  Moo moo cow.  3/18/2018 revised 08/07/2019.

A WIN IN THE U.S.  SIXTH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS. On August 18, 2014 in Nifadev v. Holder, (Case No. 13-3704/4222
6th Cir. 2014), the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit held that Mikheil B. Nifadev has proven his claim that he
had suffered persecution by reason of his Russian ethnicity at the hands of the security and regular police of Uzbekistan.   The
Court vacated the decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in Washington, D.C. which had denied Mr. Nifadev asylum,
and the Court remanded the case with additional instructions to the United States Attorney General, including that the BIA should
determine whether the BIA should also reconsider its denial of Nifadev’s application for withholding of removal and protection
under Convention Against Torture (abbreviated CAT for Convention Against Torture And Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading
Treatment or Punishment of the United Nations) in light of the opinion of the Court.  The Sixth Circuit opinion essentially and
explicitly held that
"[b]ecause the IJ [Immigration Judge] appears to have erred in her determination that Nifadev did not suffer
past persecution and because the IJ clearly misinterpreted Nifadev’s credible testimony regarding the ethnic animus of the
Uzbekistan security officials, we find that Nifadev has made out a credible case of being a refugee under the definitions of
8 U.S.C. § 1158(b)(1)(A)."
 [Emphasis added].   The United States Immigration Court in Cleveland, Ohio, had initially
found Mr.  Nifadev and his witnesses to be credible but declined to grant asylum because it erroneously determined that
Mr. Nifadev had NOT suffered persecution.   Shown in photograph on the right is Mr. Mikheil B. Nifadev with Charleston
C. K. Wang, Esq.  who represented Mr. Nifadev during trial and both appeals. To read complete opinion, please
click here.
Pursuant to the Sixth Circuit opinion, the BIA on January 5, 2015, ordered the Immigration Court to grant asylum to Mr. Nifadev.

TRUMP'S LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE WALL, BASE  PROMISES & DECEPTION
(Beware Of Bad, Bad Puns)

I fear my Thisbe’s promise is forgot!—
And thou, O Wall, O sweet, O lovely Wall,
That stand’st between her father’s ground and mine.
Thou Wall, O Wall, O sweet and lovely Wall,
Show me thy chink to blink through with mine eyne!

I’m afraid my Thisbe has forgotten her promise!—And you, oh Wall,
oh sweet, oh lovely Wall, you stand between her father’s property and mine,
you Wall, oh Wall, oh sweet and lovely Wall.
Show me your hole to stick my eye up against!

WALL holds up fingers as chink
          e> oIII

Thanks, courteous Wall. Jove shield thee well for this!
But what see I? No Thisbe do I see.
O wicked Wall through whom I see no bliss!
Cursed be thy stones for thus deceiving me!

THESEUS
The wall, methinks, being sensible, should curse again.

BOTTOM
(out of character) No, in truth, sir, he should not.
“Deceiving me” is Thisbe’s cue.
She is to enter now and I am to spy her through the wall.
You shall see, it will fall pat as I told you. Yonder she comes.

Enter THISBE
THISBE
(played by FLUTE)

O Wall, full often hast thou heard my moans,
For parting my fair Pyramus and me!
My cherry lips have often kissed thy stones,
Thy stones with lime and hair knit up in thee.

PYRAMUS
I see a voice. Now will I to the chink,
To spy an I can hear my Thisbe’s face. Thisbe?

My love thou art, my love, I think.

                                  END APARTHEID SLAVERY IN MAURITANIA

Apartheid has not died in Africa.  Apartheid is very much alive in Mauritania.  The refusal of the "white Moor" government of Mauritania to curb
the endemic enslavement of its black citizens prompted President Donald Trump through the office of the U. S. Trade Representative to give
notice on November 2, 2018 that the United States will terminate trade preference benefits with Mauritania in 2019.  In addition to the prevalence
of hereditary race based slavery, the White House also determined that the government of Mauritania continues to restrict the ability of civil
society to work freely to address anti-slavery issues.  

This moral stance of the President is laudable.  Yet U. S. immigration enforcement (ICE) recently has began aggressively targeting black Africans
from Mauritania who have sought asylum in the USA to detain for the purpose of deporting them back to  a country where race-based slavery is a
feature of the landscape.  Most of the Mauritanians including those living in Cincinnati have been here for decades and have family and children   
This immigration police activity is inconsistent with the trade sanctions imposed on Mauritania for its acquiescence of race based slavery.  
Renewed protection must be afforded black Mauritanians who have sought asylum with us.

In the last century, the world took aim at apartheid in South Africa in an effort to end racial segregation and color discrimination in that country.   
Concerted world opinion and the powerful moral stand taken accelerated the demise of apartheid in South Africa. Beginning with the release of
Nelson Mandela from prison in 1990, apartheid effectively ended with Mr. Mandela's election as President of South Africa in April 1994.

Yet oddly, the enslavement of people based on skin color is a fact of life in Mauritania in the 21st century today.  The deeply entrenched
existence of white on black slavery in Mauritania is a renewed form of apartheid that the world succeeded in ending in South Africa.  Indeed, this
Mauritanian apartheid is just as atrocious, if not more so than that of South Africa.  Slavery in any form is a terrible scourge on humanity.  It is time
that all decent people everywhere stood up once more and ensure the end of
de facto slavery in Mauritania.

Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity
of every human being?

I will, with God’s help.

The current immigration policy of our government systematically creates a
false narrative of immigrants as criminals while simultaneously creating
dehumanizing situations, in the hope that this will serve as a deterrent to
migrants.

Among the cruelest policies is the separation of children from their parents,
detaining them in conditions no child anywhere should suffer, and certainly
not children in the care of the American government. Independent observers
have witnessed children sleeping on concrete floors in frigid, overcrowded
cells, without soap or toothbrushes.  Young children were caring for even
younger children.   

Human dignity is not a matter of political opinion or expediency. We cannot
condone using human beings as bargaining chips in an effort to discourage
people from crossing our borders. Border security is a legitimate goal for any
nation, but as Christians we have a higher calling.  We are called to treat and
serve the foreigners among us as though they were our own citizens, our own
neighbors, our own family (Leviticus 19:33-34).
