What most will fail to recognize
We all know that there is a backlash coming over this terrible tragety that happened in Arizona, however in there knee jerk reactions I will say that the legislators will fail to realize that this person was within 2 feet of the congresswoman, if he had been carrying a blade weapon instead of a Glock he would have done just as much damage to her if not more. Ask any police officer what his worse fear is in a up close and personal conflict at that range, I bet it is not a gun. They will demonize the tool and not the person who acted unlawfully without admitting that he could have done what he did with any tool be it a gun, knife, or ide. I know that I have been kicking around the idea of a glock 19 for a long time but now feel that my hand is being forced so come morning I am heading down to the LGS and picking one up along with a few 33rd mags because i see them being a prime target for the Anti crowd.
