Quote of the day—The Trace

The San Bernardino elementary school gunman fired 10 shots before stopping to reload his six-shot revolver midway through, a report noted. This gave a teacher’s aide time to lead pupils out of harm’s way.

Some experts think restrictions on high-capacity ammunition magazines, rather than assault weapons bans, may be the best way to limit mass shooting. casualties.

I take issue with Sullivan’s assessment. That error is not mathematical in nature. It’s not even arithmetic. They are demonstrating they can’t even do numbers.

And if they can’t do numbers what does that say about their ability to assess the qualifications of someone who claims to be an expert?

They have crap for brains.

  1. It’s one of those “smart” guns. The gun sensed that he wasn’t done after 6 rounds so it kept firing.

  2. Must be one of those Hollywood revolvers. No wonder they are concerned. 6 shot guns firing 10 shots? That means a 30 round mag can hold at least 50 shots, assuming a linear relationship between gun capacity and how many shots it can fire before reloads.

  3. There are ten-shot revolvers of course, and maybe it was a typo where it was described as a six-shot; a simple editing mistake. Without more information it would be hard to say who’s brain is in what condition, but the numbers are far from the main point.

    What we can say with confidence is that any and all anti rights movements must be stopped, and those who’ve violated human rights must be brought to justice with a priority on restitution for the victims. The anti gun rights movement has a body count, it has political prisoners and is endangering others. Who is speaking for them?

      • Maybe the shooter threw the high-capacity, black, assault magazine at his victim after the revolver went *click* instead of *bang*?

      • I’ve never seen any limit to the ignorance of reporters or journalists. Most know less than nothing about firearms, taking their wrong information from Hollywood or from other ignorant journalists. Explaining to them that revolvers don’t have replaceable magazines and are relatively slow to reload will not even make a dent in their thought processes (or lack thereof).

  4. It might have been a five-shot, having been reloaded once already and emptied a second time. Upon the second reloading pause, the teacher’s aid took the initiative.

    So it’s all in how you see it and how you choose to react to what you chose to see, and all quite apart from the matter of all Men having been created equal, endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.

  5. They have crap for brains.
    Uh, no.
    I have no clue what is in the pyramid below “crap” but this isn’t even that high. “Crap” has some degree of value as low quality fertilizer; this….well, I don’t even know what ‘this’ is. It defies any sort of rationalization.

    It also proves that no discussion, of any type, with any goal in mind, is possible. Discussion requires, at a minimum, a foundational level of agreement on terminology, and that’s neither present nor possible when, not just math, not just numbers, but fundamental differences in relative size – something even most 2-year-olds can master as “bigger” and “smaller” – is missing.

    This isn’t just an “us vs them” issue, it’s a harbinger of the future of western civilization.

    • Not crap, but “Brawndo”. Remember, “Brawndo has what plants crave.”

    • They fixed it to more truthy (truthier?): “The San Bernardino elementary school gunman fired 10 shots before stopping to reload his revolver midway through.”

  7. “gunman fired 10 shots, stopping to reload his six-shot revolver midway through”

    With just that small change, removing the word “before” The sentence at least becomes coherent. I don’t trust the report enough to be sure this was the true sequence of events and they attempted to correct it by removing the “six-shot revolver” reference. If the gunman had time to reload a revolver this does not support their contention that capacity restrictions would have any effect.

    • Right. The only reason the shooter could continue shooting after taking time to reload is that he was operating in a disarmed victim zone.

  8. Sooner or later the BATFE men will realize that double-action revolvers are semi-auto pistols with six shot magazines that are slow to reload.

  9. Common Core mathematics right there. Whatever fits the agenda or makes you feel good.

  10. Perhaps the 6-shot revolver identified as a CA-compliant 10 round magazine fed semi-auto. Who are we to judge? It is Cali after all.
