Almost everything about the way guns are depicted in Hollywood movies and TV shows is FAKE PHYSICS.
The Health Ranger explains the truth about firearms from a scientific perspective, covering sound levels, kinetic reactions, long-range ballistics and more.
Podcast Transcript: “Everything that you’ve seen about guns in Hollywood movies is completely false in reality. Guns are a lot louder than what they appear like on TV or in the movies, but they’re a lot less powerful than how they’re depicted in the movies. For example: If you shoot somebody with a gun, they don’t go flying back 10 feet out a window, it doesn’t blast somebody across the floor… If it did, obviously it would blast you across the floor for firing the gun, because of Newtonian laws of motion, equal and opposite reaction – conservation of momentum. So, clearly you can’t just stand there and casually shoot a gun and then the other guy gets blasted across the floor. Besides a lot of bullets go through people which means the kinetic energy is not imparted to their entire body mass anyway, it just blasts a hole in them. They don’t go flying back ten feet or 20 feet or whatever is depicted in the movies. They just slump and bleed. That’s really how it happens in the real world. Now guns are also a whole lot louder than how they’re depicted in the movies. By the way, thank you for joining me here for the Health Ranger Report podcast. The reason I’m covering all of this is because gun sales are through the roof. More people are arming up now than ever before in the history of this country. So, we get a lot of new people who are new to firearms, and they’re buying guns for all the right reasons…” Listen to the full podcast below:
