"I blame the individual for the first 10 bullets, I blame the law for the next 21 bullets that he fired"

And Larry, David and Maria still blame Palin and Beck for the shooting despite they being no evidence they had anything to do with it and the shooter being a lefty.

A Glock 19 has a standard magazine of 15 rounds. plus one in the chamber.

The demagogue should be
""I blame the individual for the first 16 bullets, I blame the law for the next 15 bullets that he fired""

Of course progressive gun grabbing Idiots can't get the facts right.

Quibbling over the number does nothing to strengthen your point. Can't you just agree that you've lost this round?

httt: "Larry's" point is that failure to renew the Assault Weapons ban, with its hi-cap magazine limits, contributed to the casualty count. The maximum mag capacity on Glocks for the civilian market made during the 10-years that law was in effect, was 10. "Thus, the next 21."

Who is it that "didn't get the facts right?"

(BTW: If the shooter was "a lefty," that would be the first "lefty" I've ever heard of who wanted to bring back the gold standard.)

Yea, you would think with the Democratic control of the entire federal government for the past 2 years, they would have addressed this assault weapons issue.

I blame them.

Maria said...

I blame both parties for failing to renew the ban.

The shooter was left handed?

I did not know that.

gtl said...

The Assault Weapons Ban was allowed to expire, of course.

The Bush Tax Cuts for the upper 2% of incomes, extended.

Is this a great country, or what?

Pgh_Knight said...

I thought the tax cuts were extended for everyone???

I better go back and check that.

The assault weapon ban, first and foremost, isn't even something any cogent human being should have to debate. There is simply no plausible reason for people (outside of law enforcement or the military) to own these sorts of weapons. None. They are made to kill people quickly and efficiently, not to hunt deer or squirrels....

The reason the Dems didn't fight for it was because they are 1) wimps, who are afraid (politically) of appearing to be "soft on crime." It's total bullshit, but it's the truth. American's really believe this crap about gunfighters. Witness "True Grit's" traction. It's a narrative that won't die. The Dems are afraid to fight the good fight and take on the immense gun lobby. Even in the aftermath of Tucson, they will fold....

The second reason that the Dems wouldn't fight for the assault weapon ban is the same as the first; they are wimps.
They are my buds, but I call it like I see it.
