You know, that's interesting because we got into a bit of a discussion around the shop about what would happen if the next lunatic that went on a shooting crazy rampage did it with a revolver and breach load, double barrel shotgun.
Think about it for a moment. A .357 magnum, or a .44 magnum, with a swing out cylinder, like the S&W Model 29, could do a HELL of a lot more damage than someone with a 9mm spraying and praying. How many people have we seen in recent years get hit by multiple 9mm and .40 cal rounds and be in "serious but stable condition"?
Granted, it couldn't be reloaded as fast, but with practice, you could be right up there in time with a pocket of speed loaders. Then you factor in a side by side, cut down 12?!
What would happen then? If no "evil" assault style weapons were at fault, would the next step be that ALL firearms needed to go?
Before someone brings up Great Britian and their assinine laws - recently the crown sentenced 8 or 9 males, from the ages of 14 to 16, to something like a combined 54 or 64 years in prison for the daylight assault and multiple rape of a 14 year old who had "dissed" them.
The attack happened less than one block from her home where several passersby, who were called to trial to testify, walked by and did not intervene.
One person, when asked after the trial while he didn't do anything to stop the "gang" his reply on the BBC was "There was a whole lot of them, what was one person going to do to change things?"
Completely emasculated culture - is that where we are headed??
