I find it extremely hypocritical that the media supports the use of guns when snipers use them, but attacks the idea of a private citizen use of guns for self defense. They keep saying it was a miraculous long range shot at 30 meters. This shows the sheer ignorance most people have of firearms. I would be impressed if the snipers had been blind folded and had both hands tied behind their back. For God sake, 30 meters is essentially point blank. Send them out to 500 meters with 10 foot seas and I would be impressed. As I am writing this I hear on the television that the pirates were hanging out of the windows of the lifeboat waving to the pirate that was standing on the deck of the U.S. destroyer. "Job well done" - yes......."Miraculous" - Not even close.
