A video about how to make a video.  WTF

Has he ever been at a real incident, or is that just how he imagines it all?

You could make a movie to "what if?" any sized magazine.
What if there were 3 guys?  Four guys?  Eight guys?  A bus load of zombies?

How about strapping dueling pistols to each of the family members - you know, just in case.  That would be 8 handguns for the bad guys to deal with!  And a kitchen cabinet filled to the brim with extra clips - you know, just in case.

You can't see that this fictional piece video, where conveniently the intruders just don't
go down after numerous shots, is a blatant piece of propaganda that is designed to serve a
particular agenda?

How about this, which is based on a real life event, namesly Jared Loughner murder spree in
Arizona .


Meet Patricia Maisch the woman who kept alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner from reloading
after he opened fire on a crowd of people in Arizona Saturday.

The Tuscon sheriff told Shep Smith yesterday she may have saved numerous lives and "it was
one of the bravest actions he'd ever seen."

Maish seems far less willing to take credit for her actions.

Maisch says that she made the decision to drop to the ground when the shooting started. áWhen
shooting stopped
at the woman next to her two men, Roger Salzgeber and Bill D. Badger,
tackled Loughner and Maisch grabbed the magazine so that he couldn't reload.


http://www.businessinsider.com/meet-th....Gr5ri6K

So they made the decision to tackly Loughner when he decided to reload but of course when
Loughner decided to reload would be when his high-capacity magazine ran out. So how many
bullets were in that clip? 31


Loughner fired all 31 bullets in the magazine and was reloading when a woman in the
crowd, already wounded, attempted to grab the gun from him. He finally changed the magazine
and tried to fire, but the gun jammed. Meanwhile, two men from the crowd grabbed him and
subdued him, officials said.


http://articles.latimes.com/2011....0110110

Only an idiot or a total NRA flack wouldn't admit that small capacity magazine would have
most likely resulted in less people killed.

See that is based reality and not some piece of propaganda that you posted.

Here is Lawrence O'Donnel making this point as he makes mince meat of right-wing Republican
extremist and NRA flack Trent Lott of Arizona

That's why you should carry a .45 instead of a wimpy 9mm, or, as Joe Biden recommends, a 12ga (personally I like 0 instead of 00, but that's just me).

Then you don't know the circumstances that led to the .45 being adopted as the replacement for the .38 by the United States Army.

I know more about those circumstances than you ever will. áIt's not smart to assume things.  Do you know anything about ballistics?  Have you compared 9mm ballistics with .38 Special ballistics?  Obviously not.  I suggest that you gracefully bow out of this discussion.

And yet there you squat, making unsupported assertions / assumptions of your own.

"Smart"?

Or just overly simplistic bombast on your part?

ETA: As to my choice.  I'm agnostic with neither's attributes appealing. Though the standard handgun round was of course, changed to the 9 some time back.

Why would I? Your goto was bombast, plain and simple.

ETA: Had you been inclined to compare the merits of the 9 and the .45 there'd have been a different discussion.
