Virginia Tech Killer Used Easy-To-Get Guns
(CBS) A well-placed law enforcement source tells CBS News the weapons used in the massacre were a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun and .22-caliber pistol.
Both are readily available in gun shops across the United States and particularly accessible in the commonwealth of Virginia,
Unlike the coveted and extremely rare .38 revolvers and .45 ACP pistols.
…which recently earned a C-minus rating by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
You only earned a C-??? Damn! I’d better check what the rating for Texas is. If it’s above an F, I’ll be extremely pissed off.
“It’s much too easy to get guns in the state of Virginia,” said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Center.
“Much too easy” meaning, of course, “it’s possible to get one at all.”
That’s in part because there’s no gun registration, no mandatory waiting period to purchase weapons. The only major restriction: a limit of one gun purchase per month.
And we all remember the bit of the 2nd Amendment that says “…shall not be infringed, except for registration, waiting periods and limits on monthly purchases of course.” What? The Founding Fathers DIDN’T add that? Well, then guess what? That means it’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
It’s funny, because all of you MSM journaljizzmers are forever whining and screeching about “Constitutional violations” when the government tracks the phone calls of known terrorists, something that there is not a comma in the Constitution prohibiting, but when it comes to the 2nd Amendment and what it actually says, you seem to have a blind spot. Wonder why that is?
It remains unclear where the shooter purchased his pistols, CBS News chief investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian reports.
It’s also wholly irrelevant, since it wasn’t the gun that murdered those poor students, it was the subhuman sack of shit holding it that took care of that.
But CBS News discovered there was a gun show just 25 miles from Blacksburg last weekend where 405 guns were sold.
Of course. The Evil Non-Existent Gun Show Loophole™. Of course he bought it there. After all, nothing but evil comes of those places, and it’s not like the perp could have bought it anywhere else. Get rid of the gun shows and all of the gun dealers and nobody will ever buy a gun from anyone, ever again. After all, it’s a damn hassle to have to wait 30-45 minutes before some shady character at a local bar offers to sell you one.
Just one minor point, you CBS twits, before you cream your pants completely at your own “cleverness:” If somebody shoots about 60 people with a kill ratio north of 50%, particularly with a 9 mm EUropellet and a .22 can plinker, he’s obviously had more than a week to train in. Trust me on that one. Some of us, as opposed to you dumb hacks, actually know a thing or two about weapons and the comparative lethality of different types.
The magazine containing ammunition for the 9 mm handgun can carry between eight and 24 bullets, rapidly fired, and quickly reloaded.
An added advantage of the 24 rd magazine is that the gun, with the magazine inserted, doubles as a handy cane for your long nature walks. And believe me, the rounds of a 9 mm pistol fire no faster or slower than those of a .45. Not that ROF or magazine capacity really matter when the local authorities have helpfully made sure that your victims will be utterly defenseless.
Today the National Rifle Association “expressed its deepest condolences” to all those “affected by this horrible tragedy.”
Meanwhile, a former campus police chief at Virginia Tech told CBS News that in recent years the school had bucked the state legislature and hunting culture and took steps to safeguard its student population. It required all guns be checked with campus police, collecting hundreds at a time.
Ironically, the school specifically banned the possession of firearms in dormitories or classrooms — the exact locations of today’s unthinkable violence.
More like “an utterly predictable example of cause and effect.”
Try banning door locks in a neighborhood for a year and see what happens to the burglary rate.
Which is why the only condition you’ll find my guns in, should you ever lay your hands on them, will be “empty.”
I’ll have given you all of the bullets first.
