After the Texas church shooting there was a string of articles in various online publications arguing as to why the AR-15 is the weapon preferred by the last batch of deranged idiots.

They got some things right, but most of their reasoning was dubious at best with some of the information given to the public smack in the middle of the realm of the laughable: who can forget the “chainsaw bayonet” from USA Today?

Among the ridiculous misinformation was the claim that 5.56 is a “butcher round,” a one-shot magic bullet that could drop a T-Rex with a shot to the limbs. This is, simply put, malarkey.

According to a fellow writer here at SOFREP and former Ranger, “I’ve never shot anyone that died quick from one round of 5.56, always have to throw at least 4 or 5 in there.”
