Fox jumped the gun

A man walks into a mall with a rifle and starts shooting up the mall. He runs out of ammo and is tackled after injuring one person. Foxnews apparently went into terror mode over the incident. While that bout of hysteria is asinine, the misinformation continues:

A gunman opened fire with an AK-47 assault rifle Sunday inside a crowded mall in upstate New York, wounding one person before running out of ammunition and being subdued by employees, authorities said. Initial reports stated that there were up to three gunmen, but it later became clear that the shooter was acting alone.

The man did not open fire with an AK-47 assault rifle (can’t blame Fox here, that’s what the police chief told them). An AK-47 assault rifle is a select-fire, automatic machine gun that fires hundreds of rounds per minute. The man likely used a semi-automatic rifle that looked like an AK-47 assault rifle, like mine:

I wonder how this happened? I mean, New York has an assault weapons ban.

    Wounded one person and ran out of ammo? Maybe his ammos was just one Clinton-ban 10-round magazine, but still… Good thing he didn’t know how to shoot

    Well it’s entirely possible that some good has come out of the MSM coverage of the “assault weapons” ban. Obviously this thug believed that “spray firing form the hip” was an effective way to hit a target. Course that’s just idle specualtion on my part, but it would fit in nicely as a rebuttal to that particualr argument, “even when would be killers used your (the anti-gun lobby’s) advice to exploit those deadly features it didn’t work…maybe they’re not such deadly features after all?”

    Still it’s a cryin shame that two employees of a sporting goods store couldn’t have grabbed a shotgun or two instead of tackling the guy unarmed.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that this was probably a case of attempted suicide by cop. One does not empty a weapon in a crowded mall and only hit two people in the leg. He made no effort to reload and basically allowed those two to tackle him. Of course, if he really wanted to die, he should have tried that shit in Texas or Utah. Just my 2 cents.

    But, I thought “assault weapons” were only useful for killing, and they were so deadly?

Used three kinds of generics. I liked the Levitra Pills more, although the others acted quite well. Perhaps it all depends on the characteristics of each organism.
