Seattle PI: So full of Gun Fail (Updated correction)

House Dems will push to ban high-capacity ammo clips | Strange Bedfellows — Politics News – seattlepi.com.

Selected quotes:

“Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives will introduce legislation to ban high-capacity ammunition clips
(Office supplies are so deadly!)

““Right away . . . we could pass the ban on assault magazines,” House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said last week.
(Not to be confused with Peaceful Demonstration Magazines)

In Newtown, killer Adam Lanza’s primary weapon was a Bushmaster XM15.
(No, it was not used, but why not repeat the lie? It is juicy!)

CORRECTION: Reliable sources tell me that Lanza brought 4 pistols, 2 AR-type rifles and a Remington 870 shotgun. He took inside one of the rifles and a Glock in 10mm and a a Sig in 9mm.

He was also armed with Block 10mm and Sig Sauer 9 mm handguns, both of which allow high-capacity clips.
(A what? Must be a new gun in the market.)

An M4 assault rifle, heavily used by the U.S. military and available at gun dealers, on line or at a gun show near you.
(For people with degrees and almost any source of information available, journalist are a bunch of purposeful ignorants.)

And I had to do a partial screen capture just for future references.

  1. Question: if by some miracle they did ban “High capacity assault magazine clips,” um, what exactly would they be banning? I don’t know of anything that goes by that name.

  2. The “clips” for my Mosin Negant hold only 5 rounds each and will not hold more.
    The “clips” for my AR’s hold only 10 rounds each and will not hold more so where dose that leave ME?
    My Block’s don’t use “clips” at all…

    1. My 4 year old daughter’s gonna be pissed when the popo come and round up all her blocks. She likes to throw them at the cats (an activity I fully support, as long as my wife’s not around). What next? Will they come after her Hot Wheels cars? Where will it end?!?

  3. “(No, it was not used, but why not repeat the lie? It is juicy!)”

    Are there any sources to this other than the initial reporting, or have they gone down the memory hole already? I wouldn’t put it past them to lie but I also know that initial reporting is often inaccurate as well.

    1. I too have to throw a yellow flag on the play.

      Initial reports were that the AR-pattern rifle was pulled from the car AFTER the fact and all the shooting was done with the pistols.

      Then reports were modified/clarified to state that all shots were from the AR, the pistols weren’t used at all,(except the sucide shot), and it was a *shotgun* pulled from the car. I have, as yet, not seen any difinitive proof either way…only ‘news reports’ parroting whatever the police are releasing to them.

        1. Not saying you are not right, but it is not the first time that the NYT has had the facts….. wrong.
          Trying to get a reliable source as we speak.

          OK, found very reliable sources indicating that yes, it was an AR type used out of 2 Lanza brought.

  4. I have to say it looks really easy to buy guns in the US. Well, at least according to the media.

    “In Newtown, killer Adam Lanza’s primary weapon was a Bushmaster XM15.”

    An article in one of my countries newspaper. Long story short: every mass-murderer uses one of these and they’re available at any newsstand, no background check needed.

    Fact checking is pain in the a…, right.

    1. Problem is, the most “successful” mass murders (non 9/11) were done with either fire or explosives. Ringling Bros. Circus Arson with 169 victims and Murrah Building in OKC 168 victims.
