Under the heading of: "No Shit Sherlock!"

Glock Pistol Sales Surge in Aftermath of Arizona Shootings
After a Glock-wielding gunman killed six people at a Tucson shopping center on Jan. 8, Greg Wolff, the owner of two Arizona gun shops, told his manager to get ready for a stampede of new customers.

Wolff was right. Instead of hurting sales, the massacre had the $499 semi-automatic pistols -- popular with police, sport shooters and gangsters -- flying out the doors of his Glockmeister stores in Mesa and Phoenix.

“We’re at double our volume over what we usually do,” Wolff said two days after the shooting spree that also left 14 wounded, including Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who remains in critical condition.

A national debate over weaknesses in state and federal gun laws stirred by the shooting has stoked fears among gun buyers that stiffer restrictions may be coming from Congress, gun dealers say. The result is that a deadly demonstration of the weapon’s effectiveness has also fired up sales of handguns in Arizona and other states, according to federal law enforcement data.

“When something like this happens people get worried that the government is going to ban stuff,” Wolff said.

I wonder if sales of Satanic Altars have gone up too? Or better yet, will the state try to crack down on satanic altars and heavy metal music as well as guns and ammo in response to the attack?
"...debate over weaknesses in state and federal gun laws..." By all means lets not look into weaknesses in crazy friggin' NUTS running the streets for years, acting out and threatening people!
Guns don't kill people, NUTS kill people!

Ahhhhhh Glockmeister. Just around the corner from my indoor range.... where I had TruGlo Tritium/fiber optic sites put on my GLOCK 21 just before X Mas.

Morons in the media are saying he had a 33 round Clip. First, no such animal and it's not a CLIP.

I saw that several times in different articles, The comments that followed all asked the question "why would you need a 33 round clip for a hand gune?" I don't know of any "hand guns" that hold more than 15 in their magazine, unless you consider an uzi to be a "hand gun".

A Beretta Model-92, .9mm, holds 17 rounds in it's standard mag. But none of this really matters. If the psycho's gun held 3 rounds, the whining would be the same. The Left will never, and has never, missed an opportunity to call for the disarming of this country, something they've been trying to do for decades. And make no mistake. When they say gun control, what they actually mean is a gun ban!

Just let them try. Hell, there are several thousand MORE handguns in AZ now. They're NOT all new gun owners, but some of them are bound to be. Obviously they're anti-gun rhetoric is NOT working.

Spider said...

Yes, several thousand more, and that's just Poots!

Datz Roit.

There is an aftermarket 30 round MAGAZINE for a 9mm Glock, but these K sukkers can't tell or find the truth. Pathological liers all, just like Der Schlik.

Cocksuckers all.

Sorry Missy. You know what I mean. I meant not in a good way.
