Hey ! Biden can start by getting to the bottom of this !
Of course, his boss invoked Executive Privilege on all the Fast and Furious stuff. But this isn't just gun-running by the Feds into Mexico so as to create the appearance of a gun-control lapse. This is now the agents sending their own guns ... "Here. Take this one too. I'm getting an upgrade".Ex-ATF official's gun ends up at Mexican cartel shootout that killed beauty queen | Fox News
GOP senator demands answers after a gun belonging to a former assistant ATF office chief was found at the scene of a November cartel shootout with the Mexican military that left five dead, including a Mexican beauty queen.
Stupid stupid liberals. Stupid.
and why do civilian police officers generally carry 30 round mags in their ARs even though many of those only run on semi auto
Because the 'professional' competitive shooters are playing a combat sim game, not engaging real targets like coyotes, feral hogs and such. Run n gun, arcade games for big boys. Make the game lotsa shots and you want high cap mags. No mystery why they want them. Course change the course of fire and you can drop back to 20 round mags, again no big mystery. An individual's preference for a longer mag in the comps come from the need to shave split seconds from their overall time, the use of the mag as a handhold for run n gun play. you can have a 15 round mag that extends as far out of the weapon as the 30 rounder if a hand hold is what you want.
But I think you answered the question yourself when you called his weapon a 'race gun'.
Law Enforcement Officers do not need 30 round mags- has anyone heard of any LEO dumping an entire 30 round mag at one sitting as we used to say. 30 round mags are for fire suppression, attempting to put the enemy's head down so we could send the maneuver element diddy bop around the flank. Would be a tad more difficult to do with a semi-only weapon, and a lot irresponsible in most LEO environments.
Hey Obama. You forgot to mention that you had to work on your golf game. That you had a bad hook to work out, and your putting was a mess.JAKE TAPPER, ABC NEWS: It seems to a lot of observers that you made the political calculation in 2008 in your first term and in 2012 not to talk about gun violence. You had your position on renewing the ban on semiautomatic rifles that then-Senator Biden put into place, but you didnít do much about it. This is not the first issue -- the first incident of horrific gun violence of your four years. Where have you been?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, hereís where Iíve been, Jake. Iíve been President of the United States dealing with the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, an auto industry on the verge of collapse, two wars. I donít think Iíve been on vacation.
Lying sack of crap !
He also understands that Joe Biden knows his way around congress. He can work with the federal LEO and bring valuable suggestions to the table.
The one thing POTUS can do right now w/o congress is instruct military officials to make sure all dishonorable discharges, military cases of domestic abuse, stalking, and mental illness are turned over to NICS so that the datebase is current.
Mag capacity would be relevant If he had 1 30 round magazine and fired until he was empty and stopped. He reloaded 3x. Cho reload 9 times. Holmes reloaded a least 8 times. Unfettered. 10 rounds, 30 rounds...it is irrelevant. He was there for 10 minutes in that school with zero deterrence. The magazine capacity argument is idiotic. I can carry 3 15 round magazines and 10 10 round magazines, drop and reload each cycle in about 2 seconds.
The mag capacity argument is moronic promoted by morons who have but one aim...pass ANY firearm legislation.
You might more effectively address what to do in that 10 minute span between 911 and first responders on the scene.
