|A vigil is held for Gifford|
31 rounds in 1 magazine. I wonder what that might sound like.
let's see what that sounds like.
Final tally: 31 rounds, 6 dead, 20 injured. Among the dead include 9 year old Christina Green and a Federal Judge.
The only reason the shooting stopped WAS BECAUSE THE SHOOTER HAD TO PAUSE TO RELOAD AFTER SHOOTING HIS 31 ROUNDS.
Banning assault weapons and limits on gun magazines has been my argument all along...for years...and the Obama Administration's kowtowing to the right and NRA interests has done absolutely nothing to bring any progress to this issue. I've been balking about magazines of 19...until yesterday I didn't even know you could get 31-round mags.
A magazine of 31 is designed for one thing: to kill another human. There's no way to argue around that fact.
Sadly, yesterday should provide some motivation to put an end to such things...but unfortunately not before there's more spilled blood.
