Steve, while I generally agree with your politics, you REALLY need to take
this to a political group. This is alt.home.repair, NOT alt.political
Please stop using this group as your personal political pissing ground.
Please turn in your computer. You are too stupid to own one. Notice that
the subject clearly says "O.T. The sick gun culture." For you to click into
this thread and then complain about it is silly. Do you return oatmeal at
the store that is plainly labeled oatmeal?
I'm only answering you because someone else quoted you. I have YOU
killfiled because of just this type of stupidity you constantly display.
Buy a vowel. Get a clue. Learn how to use your computer, or dump it.
Learn how to read plainly labeled goods.
Review the data, TV isn't much of a research tool.
In a country of over 300 million..........only about 1,500 or so.
Way fewer than:
car accidents (~40k),
unintentional poisoning (30k),
unintentional falls (~20k),
suicide-all means (~30k),
unintentional suffocation (~6k)
The lessons here?
Guns seldom kill the "unintended".
Stay away from cars.
Be careful what you put in your mouth.
Spending time on ladders & high places is dangerous.
Take the right anti-depressant.
Watch out with the kinky stuff.
He -could- have used a bomb,like the Muslims.
I also note the Columbine killers had bombs,that failed to explode.
perhaps to deal with a riot mob,such as the LA riots of several years
ago,where police refused to enter the riot zone.
I note that Korean shopkeepers used "assault weapons" to keep the rioters
from burning them and their families alive,when the rioters came to torch
their shops/homes.(they lived above the shops)
FYI,the 33 round magazine is made for the Glock 18,a select-fire machine
pistol.But the Glock 17 also accepts the standard 17 round magazine.
The 33 round mag fits in all the 9mm Glocks,but sticks out (extends) from
Note the shooter had a magazine malfunction at ~20 rounds,stopping him and
giving others a chance to jump him before he could insert another magazine.
You guys are going to laugh at me for this, but I'll tell you anyway.
My favorite carry piece is an American Arms PX22 loaded with .22LRs.
It's small, light, has very little power and is not accurate beyond
about 10', but that's what I wanted. I figured that any threat that
was more than 10' away was not enough of a threat to contemplate
I used to carry a .38spl snub nose, but I found it was just too heavy
and uncomfortable for me to carry all day; so I found myself carrying
less and less often. Then I thought that a small .22 that I had with
me was better than a .38spl that I didn't have with me.
Ok, you can laugh now.
They all poke holes if you know how to use them. .22's are particularly
nasty because they have high muzzle velocity, and fragment so much. A
favorite of mob hit men.
Just today I had my Glock 19 blow-the-fuck-up!
It slam-fired but it slam-fired before the cartridge was chambered!
Goddamn Bakelite guns!
I showed it to the range master. "Yep," he said. "Failure to maintain
weapon. You didn't keep it clean."
I hit him in the mouth.
Fortunately I wasn't injured... my current squeeze was the one firing the
[Pardon the profanity, but I'm still upset. According to the anti-gunners I
should be running around the neighborhood shooting everything that moves in
a fit of pique and they are relieved my weapon won't work ("It's alright
little brother... there are more."). Guess I'll have to settle for standing
on the street corner yelling "May your thigh swell up with salt water!"]
This evening I'll break out the duct tape.
It's interesting that no matter what you say in this discussion, you still
enjoy the benefits of the so-called "special relationship" our countries
have had since WWII. Your native language is still NOT German, now is it?
