SANDY HOOK REPORT: ADAM LANZA BROKE LAWS TO ACQUIRE GUNS, BROKE MORE LAWS USING THEM

2 Comments

This is from Breitbarts Big Government.

Which laws on the book now or proposed laws would

stopped Adam Lanza from getting a gun and using it?

 

A report released Monday by Connecticut’s Attorney for the District of Danbury says all the guns and ammunition involved in the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary were legally purchased by Nancy Lanza and then stolen by her son, Adam.

The report lists “a number of crimes” Lanza committed with the stolen guns—including the crime of “Murder Under Special Circumstances,” which was committed twenty-six times—and the report says Adam Lanza “was solely criminally responsible” for all these crimes.

According to State’s Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III, the firearms found inside the school after the crime were a Bushmaster XM15-E2S, a Glock 20 in 10 mm, and a Sig Sauer P226 in 9mm. The Sig Sauer was never fired, and the Glock was the weapon Lanza used to take his own life after shooting innocents.

An Izmash Saiga-12, a 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun, was found in Lanza’s car outside the school, and a Savage Mark II .22 rifle was found at Lanza’s residence.

Lanza used the .22 rifle to shoot and kill his mother as she slept.

All of the guns were lawfully purchased by Lanza’s mother, as was all the ammunition. Lanza then bypassed all gun control by stealing the firearms before using them to carry out his heinous crimes.

Because the guns were stolen, Senator Joe Manchin‘s (D-WV) failed gun control bill would have done nothing to prevent the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Governor Cuomo Makes High Capacity Magazines a Worse Offense Than Child Pornography

Leave a comment

This is from FrontPageMag. com.

Andrew The Twit Cuomo is out crazing Mayor Loonberg.

That is saying a mouthful because Bloomie nuttier than a fruitcake.

I feel sorry for the law biding citizens of New York.

As far as I am concerned if you have child porn you get death.

What’s worse? Owning a high capacity magazine or child pornography.

According to Governor Andrew Cuomo, child pornography, stealing children, rape in the 3rd degree, criminally negligent homicide and choking someone are lesser offenses than owning a high capacity magazine.

If your child is lured under the reign of Cuomo the Second, then you better hope the molester also did something “seriously wrong” like owning a high capacity magazine.

Possession of – for an example – a standard capacity 13-round magazine for a 9mm SIG Sauer P229 or any magazines holding more than 11 rounds is and will be a Class D Violent Felony, even for owners who possessed large capacity magazines prior to Sept. 1994 when possession was grandfathered.)

Listed below the fold are a few crimes in New York that are class E felonies and A misdemeanors which are one or two arrest levels below a class D felony.

Luring a child

Criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation

Criminally negligent homicide

Rape 3rd degree

Criminal sexual act 3rd degree

Persistent sexual abuse

Substitution of children

Unlawful imprisonment 1st degree

Female genital mutilation

Possessing a sexual performance by a child

Cuomo is clearly jealous of Bloomberg’s reputation as the craziest nanny state fascist in the state and is eagerly trying to catch up to him by criminalizing ownership of a magazine more so than abusing a child.

Another reminder that gun control is just fascism misspelled.

 

 

The Truth About Gun Buying Advice

Leave a comment

This is from The Truth About Guns.

If asked about what gun to buy I tell them this is my two cents worth.

 Personally I favor the Glock but you may want something else.

I ask them if they know of a good gun shop?

If they do I tell them to talk to the person in the shop.

If they do not know of a shop I tell them of a couple of good shops.

I also recommend going to a place to rent and try different guns.

A friend and I were discussing handguns today and we got on the topic of his nephew who’d bought a .357 Magnum revolver (the only handgun he owns) but can’t shoot it worth a damn. It made me think about the husband of one of my employees who’s a retired firefighter, stands about 6′ 4″ has a WWE wrestler’s build and whose only gun is a compact .380. Which he never shoots. In both cases they were out with the guys and got a recommendation from someone as to what gun they should buy. In both cases that recommendation was wrong . . .

We’re assaulted by recommendations from all manner of “experts” who are only too happy to tell anyone who will listen about their idea of the perfect gun. The problem is those who are less knowledgeable often follow this advice without really understanding the implications. Until it’s too late and they’ve plunked down their hard-earned cash for a gun they hate.

I’ve been down that road myself.  I’ve probably purchased something north of a couple of dozen handguns over the last few years in search of the “right” gun for me. I still own about half of them, but the ones that ended up sold provided some valuable lessons (as well as hits to the pocketbook) as to what I like and — just as important — what I don’t.

Lesson One:  There is no such thing as a perfect gun

Anyone who tells you otherwise is full of shit. Up to their baby blues in it. For most people a perfect gun would be small and easily concealable, lightweight, have a large capacity magazine (at least 15 rounds), have grip big enough to be held comfortably and have less recoil than a .22 while firing a massively potent round.

Absent some sort of Dr. Who-like space/time dimensional warp effect, there isn’t any way to pack all of those characteristics to be in a one gun. A firearm that is small and light will, by necessity, be limited in ammo capacity as well as (to some extent) caliber.  A gun that fires a powerful round needs to be larger and heavier to absorb the recoil, or it would be too difficult to shoot accurately for most people.

And as I’ve said in the past, I prefer the DA/SA firing system over the the SAO, DAO, Glock Safe Action varieties. Any gun that doesn’t have a DA/SA is simply not the perfect gun. For me.

Lesson Two: The right tool for the job

Once we’ve established that there’s no such thing as the perfect do-everything gun, most people are better off getting more than one, each of which is good for its intended purpose. This beats the hell out of settling for one gun that does nothing particularly well.

This is why I own a couple of large frame combat/target pistols for when I don’t need to worry about concealability and want large capacity magazines. I also own a mid-size heater, a Sig P229, that I can conceal in the colder months, but still has a respectable round count. And then there are my compact guns such as my S&W J-Frame that, while lacking in capacity, are much easier to conceal. I choose my gun depending on my situation each day. Sure, there’s always a compromise involved, but such is life.

Lesson Three: Understand the context of the advice

James Yeager, the guy behind the Tactical Response videos, is famous for saying, “Every gun should be a Glock, every Glock should be 9mm, and every 9mm should be a Glock 19.” Again, bullshit. He may say that partly in jest, but in my mind such advice undermines his credibility as an instructor.

The good instructors I’ve known don’t give a damn what you shoot. They’ll talk with you and offer suggestions based on what your situation, but they won’t presume to tell you what you need. Everyone’s different and they know it.

Since I have a fondness for DA/SA guns and since Glock doesn’t make a DA/SA gun, I’m damn glad the industry hasn’t taken Yeager’s advice. Check the display case at your friendly neighborhood gun store. Not everyone wants or needs Gaston’s brainchild. Horses for courses.

Another key to filtering the noise: consider the background of the person giving the advice. Ask a SEAL what the best gun is and he’s going to give you the benefit of his experience using the guns he had access to. The problem is that unless you’re planning to hunt the Taliban in the desert, chances are that his view of the best gun won’t be yours.  On the other hand, if you’re looking to carry concealed, people like your fellow CCW holders or police officers with experience working undercover might provide you with better suggestions since their experience is a lot closer to your situation.

Case in point: I’m a big cigar smoker and I used to blindly follow the advice of cigar reviewers. After smoking my way through more than my share of crappy stogies, I began to understand the individual tastes of the various cigar reviewers figured out who had tastes that are similar to mine. Now, I only pay attention them and rarely end up with any dog rockets.

The same approach has merit where gun advice is concerned. I’ll never listen to a guy who spews the one gun to rule them all ethos (Glock honks, SIG or Beretta fanboys, etc.)  I own handguns from five different companies and like them all. So get your advice from people who understand that the reason there are so many options is that there are just as many different preferences out there, each of which has some merit to the individual shooter. It’s usually the best way to avoid plunking your money down for the firearm equivalent of a dog rocket.
