Mike McClellan’s commentary (Dec. 19) was so full of inaccuracies and blatant lies that I felt compelled to respond.
1. None of the proposed legislation would have averted this tragedy, NOR IS INTENDED TO! You can’t legislate morality, self control or stupidity. This is simply the “never let a tragedy go to waste” playbook of libs re: gun control with their “new” cheerleader Barack Obama.
2. As a Marine, I can tell you that BY DEFINITION assault weapons are capable of semi and full auto fire, and require a class 3 FFL. The purchase or possession without one has ALREADY been illegal since the GCA of 1934. And even belt-fed weapons have their ammo capacity restricted by the size of the box, so there is no such thing as “unlimited” magazine size in the real world, Mike.
Additionally, while I am familiar with FMJ, HP, AP and API projectiles, perhaps you could inform me what EXACTLY classifies ammo as cop killers? Are they optically tracked/wire guided as to only harm LEO’s? Pure fiction!
3.If the feds wanted to make society was safer they could address the fact that since they stopped institutionalizing the mentally ill 10 years ago they forced many of these people to become homeless. They could also start enforcing the gun laws we already have on the books.
I await your commentary on the 5,000-plus weapons sent to cartels BY THE FEDS!
4.In Africa and elsewhere THOUSANDS of tribal genocide victims are HACKED TO DEATH WITH MACHETES!
