How to use rifles in a sentence?

  1. Kevin Thelwell:

    Unknown subjects armed with various semiautomatic weapons, to include rifles, arrived on the scene and began discharging the firearms towards the residents, ultimately striking and killing Elijah LaFrance.

  2. George Orwell:

    It is a commonplace that the history of civilisation is largely the history of weapons. In particular, the connection between the discovery of gunpowder and the overthrow of feudalism by the bourgeoisie has been pointed out over and over again. And though I have no doubt exceptions can be brought forward, I think the following rule would be found to be generally true that ages in which the dominant weapon is expensive or difficult to make will be ages of despotism, whereas when the dominant weapon is cheap and simple, the common people have a chance. Thus, for example, tanks, battleships and bombing planes are inherently tyrannical weapons, while rifles, muskets, long-bows and hand-grenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon --so long as there is no answer to it-- gives claws to the weak.

  3. Catherine Stefani:

    Every country on earth has video games, movies, and mental health issues, and yet only the U.S. has gun violence at elementary schools, at the movies, at Walmart, the difference is guns. No other country has so many assault rifles on their streets.

  4. Chuck Haggard:

    In the year 2015 we shouldn’t be talking about using pool rifles, the entire point of patrol rifles is to have a precision weapon system. Pooled rifles are a sloppy way to do business and dangerous to bystanders.

  5. David Joo:

    So I packed some, you know, guns, rifles and shotguns and handguns, right there, another driving shooter. I was hiding behind the car, another shooter. The first time, I was scared.
