    Well, it appears that the weapon used worked as designed, and was deadly. It was the 'shooter' who was defective!

    I think I'll go the other route. Since a .45 is known for it's deadly power I think my 9mm should not be cause for concern by these guys.

    What? My .45 is DEADLY? I didn't know it was DEADLY. What a revelation. Now I'm scared of it. Maybe I should get rid of... WAIT A MINUTE! That's why I got it in the first place!


    Never mind.

    If I could just carry a cop it would make the anti-s arguments moot... But I would carry a cop that has a .45.

    I'd carry a cop that actually went to the range more than once or twice a year (and who developed good shooting skills using dynamic targets in a stress replicated environment). Thus, the caliber of his weapon would not be important.

    That was the Customs Service special agent saying that. Hmmmmmm

    It sounds like the shooter hit what he was aiming at...too bad the LEOs involved didn't......

    This quote is what I noticed:

    The bad guy's gun was ILLEGAL in New York, he didn't have a NY permit for it!........So I guess there isn't any 'gun law' that works......

    well that's the problem....he bought the gun in 1991 in Sarasota, Florida. That gun had almost 21 years to plot and scheme and think up a way to kill someone. Just a case of another gun from Florida finding its way north to that pillar of safety, New York City....which I find puzzling since most New Yorkers move to Florida, not from Florida to New York....so its obvious this guy was totallly nuts.

    Code, for the language used in that quote: no current law bans it; so new "ban" laws must be necessary.

    What wishful thinking, to imagine that a murderer's going to give a damn about farcical bans or pretty signs saying "no." The only folks who will listen to such things are upstanding citizens who prefer to avoid being criminalized for having the means of defending themselves, at the risk to their very lives. THAT is the practical impact of such bans.

    The "Just Say No" exhortations from the 1980's ... look how well those worked to stem the tide of the drug trade/abuse. As any Brit/Aussie can confirm, bans of firearms haven't stopped violence one bit; quite the opposite, actually.

    See, I actually read it as "There was nothing any gun control law could have done to stop this... no military-type weapon that could shoot 5000 rounds per second... just a normal ol' gun". But then I'm a cock-eyed optimist, I guess.

    I let a 90lb girl who's never handled a gun before shoot my full size 1911 and my 3in 1911 a few weeks ago. She didn't know what she was doing and she blew the 10 ring out. haha. I think 1911s are some of the easiest guns to shoot accurately.
