Priceless! – You can’t make this up.

If you still doubt that the people currently in charge are putting PC bullshit ahead of our security then this story might clear the air somewhat:

Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation’s Armed Forces at home.

During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

Thirteen people were killed and dozens more wounded at Fort Hood in 2009, and the number of alleged plots targeting the military has grown significantly since then. Lawmakers said there have been 33 plots against the U.S. military since Sept. 11, 2001, and 70 percent of those threats have been since mid-2009. Major Nidal Hasan, a former Army psychiatrist, who is being held for the attacks, allegedly was inspired by radical U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in late September. The two men exchanged as many as 20 emails, according to U.S. officials, and Awlaki declared Hasan a hero.

Seriously? The WH has classified a terror attack that killed 13 American military personnel as workplace violence? WTF? Ex-military, conservatives, and Tea Partiers are all dangerous quasi-terrorists (or outright terrorists according to some on the left), but actual terrorists, commit work place violence?

I am debating whether to re-read the Qur’an and beef up on how to kiss Allah’s ass or buy more ammo, because we are doomed. Looks like it is ammo.

    This is the very first positive thing that vile, two-faced bint (Collins) has ever done. She must have election nerves.

    BTW, I was so impressed with the weapon (FN 5.7) that Major “mooseslime” Hassan used I bought one for my self.

    For those that care it uses a 5.7X28mm cartridge, same diameter as a M-16/AR-15(5.6X39) just a little bit (11mm) shorter. But then again it’s a handgun. It comes with three 20 round magazines plus there are 30 round mags available after market. Prolly the most accurate pistol I own.

    AR makes an AR-57 (either replacement upper or complete rifle your choice) for use with this round. It come with three 50 round mags.

    Well, by DOD’s definition, 9/11 was just a slightly more extreme example of “workplace violence.”

    Why did we even put together the Dept. of Homeland Security? The Dept. of Workplace Violence would’ve worked just as well. That is to say, doesn’t work at all for the purpose(s) it was sold for.

    the 5.7x 28mm is a bit larger in diameter than the 5.56x45mm, but in terms of weight it is lighter than than the 5.56. 40 grn vs 55-62 grn.
    The AR-57, is a upper conversion for the M-16/AR-15 series rifles. and is a damm fun looking gun.
    however the FN P-90 is the compact bull-pup carbine that fires the same round.

    the Article in question does not cite the WH or DoD paper, that make this claim. I would prefer to see this before i go fucking Hiroshima on those fucking twats.

    Presumably this is because the guy was at work when this occured (like it or not). The 9/11 terrorists weren’t. Well, under any reasonable definition.

    I thought the opposite argument was being made with respect to TSA….certainly didn’t seem to be a whole lot of “PC bullshit” involved there.

    Excuse my ignorance on the issue, but for what practical purpose did they DOD consider this as “workplace violence”? Why did they need to consider it as a type? Does it trigger certain things?

    officially the defense is saying that this was a case of PRE Traumatic stress disorder.
    BTW, he was not on duty at the time, nor was he at his workplace.

    HARLEY,
    AR sells either the upper conversion or the complete AR-57.

    AR-57 from the factory
    Have recently been considering converting my left-hand Stag so I can have the best of both options.

    My son is really enamored with the PS-90 (semi-auto version), but a bit over-priced in my book.

    FN PS-90

    check CDNN, they have SP-90’s for around about $1400.
    IT would be nice, but it is a CBQ round only, and the damm requirement for a 16 inch barrel is f-ing annoying.

    I’m not familiar with “CBQ round”. The PS-90 take the same round as the FN 57. The 16 inch barrel is the law of the land even so the overall length if the weapon is only 26inches.

    I worded that pretty bad. The 5.7 was pretty much meant for close quarters battle, and not for medium range plus engagements. Out beyond that you get the classic problem with the 5.56 round in the velocity and mass, being far less capable of producing fatal hits at that range.
    He, well in some states, you can get the shorter barreled if you have the SBR tax stamp. Stupid law. Though in my home state, they just passed a law that pretty much gets rid of all the state restriction on full auto, SBR, SBS, and other NFA weapons, all we have to do is comply with the federal regulations.
    the 300 Blackout, sounds intriguing, but it is still pretty expensive to shoot.
    Its nice to get some good gun nut chat back on here,.
