Boston and shattering a MSM gun meme

Teach them prop­erly, Major.

Glory 1989

It’s Mon­day so of course Morn­ing Joe con­tin­ues to rant about the gun bill, mak­ing the case to their niche audi­ence that there is a con­nec­tion to Boston. As ten­u­ous as this idea is to any­one pay­ing atten­tion for the low info voter it might have played if Boston didn’t shat­ter some of their illu­sions, such as clip limits.

For a cou­ple of months we were told how nobody needs more than 15 round clip mag­a­zine or less to stop an intruder. For the low infor­ma­tion voter who has never held a gun, fired a gun it made sense.

After all they’ve been treated to Hun­dreds of House of Movies when with a sin­gle clip usu­ally only 7 rounds or less. It doesn’t take more than one clip mag­a­zine for a sin­gle per­son to hold off a bad guy.

That busi­ness man­aged to sell in Col­orado, Mary­land & New York before the low infor­ma­tion voter got a peek at Boston.

To the low infor­ma­tion voter this was the ulti­mate real­ity show, Sur­vivor meets NCIS. They were glued to their set and what did they see? They saw police offi­cers involved in fire­fights with sus­pects with­out the nor­mal fil­ters of the media.

And just like that TV view­ers en mass were treated to a basic fact about guns. If some­one is shoot­ing back, it’s a whole new ball­game.

If cops who have reg­u­lar access to fir­ing ranges and police train­ing couldn’t fin­ish these guys off, how con­fi­dent do you feel about your pis­tol or rifle if you only have 15 rounds to defend your­self against an intruder?

Over time with the strength of the media & the cul­ture the gun grab­bers of the left might be able to re-​sell that fan­tasy, but for now at least the illu­sion is shat­tered and no about of chest beat­ing on Manchin/​Toomey will change it.

And inci­den­tally it sug­gests my own plan to stop school shoot­ings would be enough to hold off a shooter till the cav­alry arrives.

Update: Speak­ing of shat­ter­ing a meme:

The sus­pected ter­ror­ists accused of bomb­ing the Boston Marathon, killing a police offi­cer and shoot­ing it out with cops in the streets of Water­town did not have licenses for their guns, an offi­cial tells the Asso­ci­ated Press:

Cam­bridge Police Com­mis­sioner Robert Haas tells The Asso­ci­ated Press in an inter­view Sun­day that nei­ther Tamer­lan Tsar­naev nor his brother Dzhokhar had per­mis­sion to carry firearms.

More than 200 rounds of ammu­ni­tion were fired dur­ing the shootout with cops in the wee-​hours of Fri­day morn­ing after the sus­pects had report­edly killed Sean Col­lier, a 26-​year-​old cam­pus police­man at the Mass­a­chu­setts Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (MIT) in Cam­bridge, and car­jacked the dri­ver of a Mer­cedes SUV.

Amaz­ing what Robert Stacy McCain can do with three para­graphs of just facts.

Update 2: I’ve been emphat­i­cally informed I should have put “mag­a­zine” vs “clip” corrected.

It’s Monday so of course Morning Joe continues to rant about the gun bill, making the case to their niche audience that there is a connection to Boston. As tenuous as this idea is to anyone paying attention for the low info voter it might have played if Boston didn’t shatter some of their illusions, such as clip limits.

For a couple of months we were told how nobody needs more than 15 round clip magazine or less to stop an intruder. For the low information voter who has never held a gun, fired a gun it made sense.

After all they’ve been treated to Hundreds of House of Movies when with a single clip usually only 7 rounds or less. It doesn’t take more than one clip magazine for a single person to hold off a bad guy.

That business managed to sell in Colorado, Maryland & New York before the low information voter got a peek at Boston.

To the low information voter this was the ultimate reality show, Survivor meets NCIS. They were glued to their set and what did they see? They saw police officers involved in firefights with suspects without the normal filters of the media.

And just like that TV viewers en mass were treated to a basic fact about guns. If someone is shooting back, it’s a whole new ballgame.

If cops who have regular access to firing ranges and police training couldn’t finish these guys off, how confident do you feel about your pistol or rifle if you only have 15 rounds to defend yourself against an intruder?

Over time with the strength of the media & the culture the gun grabbers of the left might be able to re-sell that fantasy, but for now at least the illusion is shattered and no about of chest beating on Manchin/Toomey will change it.

And incidentally it suggests my own plan to stop school shootings would be enough to hold off a shooter till the cavalry arrives.

Update: Speaking of shattering a meme:

The suspected terrorists accused of bombing the Boston Marathon, killing a police officer and shooting it out with cops in the streets of Watertown did not have licenses for their guns, an official tells the Associated Press:

Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas tells The Associated Press in an interview Sunday that neither Tamerlan Tsarnaev nor his brother Dzhokhar had permission to carry firearms.

More than 200 rounds of ammunition were fired during the shootout with cops in the wee-hours of Friday morning after the suspects had reportedly killed Sean Collier, a 26-year-old campus policeman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, and carjacked the driver of a Mercedes SUV.

Amazing what Robert Stacy McCain can do with three paragraphs of just facts.

Update 2:  I’ve been emphatically informed I should have put “magazine” vs “clip” corrected.
