Will .223/5.56 penetrate a body? Well, if a 9mm FMJ 124 gr bullet traveling at 1150 ft/s has the possibility of over penetration, then a .224 FMJ 55 gr bullet traveling at 3240 ft/s will damn sure over penetrate.

not necessarily. If it fragments it can decelerate even faster than an expanding hollow point. Only 55 grains isn't much mass to keep up momentum in resistance either.

One way to understand it is if you've ever jumped into water from a great height. The faster you are going, the more the water hurts you. If the bullet is going faster, the more pressure on the bullet. That's why a close range bullet going faster may fragment more than if it was going slower from being shot from farther away.

was a rifle, any rifle actually used? did he just use handguns? there's lots of questions that are sadly lacking in answers that are truthful.

another thing that comes to mind, is if he didn't even use a rifle and only used the handguns, then all this proposed gun control measures intigated by Obama is based on nothing more than lies, coming from disinformation spread by the liberal gun hating media.

i for one think that the American public is owed the truth about what really happened. the more they hide the truth, the more credence the conspiracy theorists claims have.

You mean the administration created false details surrounding a tragic situation to push an agenda? Geez I've never seen them do that before.....(see Benghazi incident). Coincidentally, that poor scape goat is still sitting in jail.

But . . but . . Pandas aren't bears! They're related to raccoons! And they look like KISS.

Suuuuuuuure, you guys go hug some pandas and get back to me on how that goes. They aren't vegetarians; they are just to lazy to kill something to eat; they have been known to eat carrion.

Lol also apparently to lazy to reproduce and save their own species but really, if im hugging a bear it needs to be a baby. I wont be lured into a false sense of safety by cuteness. Made that mistake enough with women
