Given the quite ridiculous coverage thus far in this tragedy, I post this with the caveat that the facts may be different. A good example of this is the "authoritative" reports yesterday, including some "weapons experts" who were absolute in their view that due to the number of wounded etc. etc. an "automatic" weapon "must" have been used. (N.B. The number of crimes actually involving the use of an automatic weapon is statistically miniscule and the number involving those that are legally owned can be counted on one hand.) Of course, these reports were also paired with another false, though largely unconditional, report that the shooter was a "veteran of the Afghanistan War." Taken together, these reports, supplemented by the unfounded assertions that the evil "Tea Party" was behind this etc., demonstrate the lengths that some will go to make any "crisis" fit their ideological templates. Shooter used a Glock 19, sources say There are also as yet unconfirmed reports that an "extended" magazine was used. Cue the usual calls for "gun control."
