The number of bullets in an automatic pistol’s magazine is completely meaningless.

November 8th, 2007

After the police versus punk shootout in Milwaukee the other night, buy viagra viagra Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said:

“We have a situation now with the laxity of gun laws that these multiple clips are more readily available, viagra canada ” he said. “And quite candidly, it puts our police at a disadvantage if you’ve got individuals with very, very large clips fighting against police officers, and that’s what you saw last night. I need help to make sure my police officers are not being outgunned.”

Anyone who has ever fired an automatic knows that swapping an empty magazine for a full one is literally a matter of one or two seconds.

The difference between carrying three 10-round magazines (which was the legal limit for new magazines when the previous Federal law was in effect) and two 15-round magazines is functionally zero.

The problem isn’t the gun…or the type of gun…or the size of the magazines…it’s the shooter.

Are jet airliners evil because some assholes flew two into the World Trade Center and killed thousands of people?

It’s not the tool, it’s the person behind the tool.

And whenever Tom Barrett tries to blame the pistols instead of the people, he’s the one who ends up looking like a tool.

    Nor is it the time. Mayor milk carton made a big point of the time of day.

    What the hell does that matter?

    8pm, 8 am, 1pm. Any time of day it is just ridiculous.

    Mayor, do we have a crisis yet?

    Barrett is a tool. He’s also a moron. He’s busy now sending the bookmobile to the south side.

    Tommy Boy is a one trick parrot he only knows how to squawk the gun line. He has not done one productive thing to stem the crime in Milwaukee so all he has to talk about is EVIL guns.

    It is never about the culture I am willing to bet there are actually more guns in Waukesha County than Milwaukee but for some reason you do not see the same problems with gun violence

    hmmmmm I hope the good Mayor never sees my collection I have stuff in there that would make the good Mayor shat himself if the pieces of crap the gang bangers were using scared him

    As they say the people of Milwaukee get the government they deserve.
