There are gun nuts, and there are gun morons.
And he knows absolutely nothing about guns.
On McLaughlin Group yesterday he spouted the below nonsense:
It was a high tech exercise.
... The President found a way of making this historic. The way he chose to make this historic was to say this was the largest killing that occured in this history of this country on a college campus. John McLaughlin got it right in the introduction. He said it was the largest case of gun murder in the history of this country.
It was a high tech killing because the magazines that he was using in his automatic weapon were illegal during the Clinton administration
... he would not have been able to buy them if George Bush and the Republican Congress did not allow them to become sold to mentally ill people like this.
There were kids on that campus who were brave enough and big enough to stop one person with a gun unless it was an automatic weapon that could spray the bullets. Just spray them, Pat. That's why they couldn't stop him!
If he had to fire, if he had to squeeze one bullet at a time
... you hold that trigger and you spray it.
As many of you know:
- I think the Lakota Indians would claim the Wounded Knee Massacre was a much larger case of gun murder
- The number of rounds per magazine is largely irrelevant, since he already reloaded at least 17 times, and so obviously reloading didn't slow him down significantly
- High tech? This same technology was available a hundred years ago. Ever hear of "1911" pistols? They were semiautomatic pistols that held interchangable magazines of bullets. Cho's Glock 19 and Walther P22 worked the same way. You know why they call it a 1911? That's the year the U.S. military put it into service.
- IT WAS NOT AN AUTOMATIC WEAPON YOU MORON! NEITHER OF HIS WEAPONS IS REMOTELY CAPABLE OF AUTOMATIC FIRE! YOU DO HAVE TO SQUEEZE THE TRIGGER ONE BULLET AT A TIME!
