Homeland Park, SC:
Neighbors said they heard what sounded like a high-powered assault rifle go off just after 9 p.m. Wednesday.
It would be interesting to ask the neighbors what specific aspects of the sound made it sound like a “high-powered assault rifle” rather than a regular-powered assault rifle, or even just a regular non-assault rifle. How was it different, from their living rooms or wherever they were when they heard it, from a handgun. Maybe play them a tape of ten different guns and ask them to pick out the “high-powered assault rifles.”
Heck, I’d be interested in hearing what they think a “high-powered assault rifle” even is.
