Watched what I considered the stupidest most pointless and misleading gun related news report last night . First I'll give a short background on the REAL story . We had the Chief of police and the now assistant Chief who was formally the acting Chief of police of a small township get into a physical fight at their station and one or more drew their weapon on the other a few weeks ago here in ST. Louis County . NO shots were fired and other police departments were actually called in on an "Officer in need of aid" call and the fight was broken up without any serious injury to anyone . Anyway I suppose out of desperation to create some news they rehashed the whole thing only this time a reporter was standing in a gun shop next to a sales counter with 2 pistols laying there . He explains how one of the two "Chiefs" was armed with a 9mm as he picks up a S&W and tells how many rounds it holds , he then lays it down and picks up a Sig 40 and starts a spiel about how it is much more powerful than the other gun because it holds more bullets and the ones it shoots travel 1/4 of a mile per second "I guess he has never heard of a little thing called gravity " . He makes it sound like the gun itself gives the bullet it's speed and power rather then the combination of the weight of the bullet and the powder charge and "at least in my opinion" is insinuating that the bullet is somehow always going to travel miles and miles and could perhaps hurt or kill someone . Just another piece to try to scare the public into thinking how guns are so dangerous I think .
