The drug cartels' weapons of choice include variants of the AK-47, .50-caliber sniper rifles and a Belgian-made pistol called the "cop killer" or "mata policia" because of its ability to pierce a bulletproof vest.
"It's in high demand by your violent drug cartels, their assassins in Mexico," said Newell of the ATF. The gun can fire a high-powered round used in a rifle.
The Belgian pistol Ross is talking about is the FN Five-seveN pistol. And as Bob correctly states, it doesn't shoot a high powered round, or a rifle round, its a PDW round, which is a very light, small, low recoil round, designed for pistols and light rifles.
Where the fascists at the Brady Campaign try and trip people up is that there are 5.7 rounds that can penetrate armor, but these are heavily restricted and monitored so that only police, federal agencies and military personnel have access to this armor piercing ammunition. The regular ammunition that is available to the civilian market isn't armor piercing, as loud as the Brady fascists scream that it is, it just isn't so.
The Fascist thugs at the Brady campaign have been attacking the Five-seveN since it was released, but why? I know why.
The PS90, an eeeevil high powered high capacity cop and puppy killing semiautomatic Antichrist assault death machine
That is why they fear the Five-seveN, and have been so aggressive in demagoguing against it, because it is hugely popular in pop culture, and the opportunity for yoots who spend a lot of time playing video games and surfing the tubes to turn into young adults with Five-seveNs and PS90's scares the hell out of them. They know that pro-Second people own the internet, and they are losing people my age because they can't compete in the marketplace of ideas online, and that pesky First Amendment won't let them do anything about it.
They know that "assault weapons" and cool looking guns like the PS90 and Five-seveN are the fastest growing market, and a lot of those are younger shooters. The only hope the gun control movement has at enacting their vision for a bleaker Nannyfied tomorrow is to get permanent, unshakable "Assault Weapons" bans in place, and hope that in denying access to those guns will destroy interest in shooting amongst younger people.
