One of their latest headlines on the abc news web site about the VT shooting reads "Ammo from eBay". Then in the story they state that the shooter bought two ammunition clips from eBay and states the name of the person he bought them from. They later refer to the clips as "ammunition" which of course they are not. No where does it physically state that he purchased bullets from eBay which I thought was impossible. Just venting some steam.

The mainstream media only knows two things about guns:

They don't like them and you shouldn't be able to own them.

Their research on anything of a technical nature is usually impeccable, so I am shocked at this development.

On tonight's news, they profiled Scotland, claiming that there hadn't been any school shootings since a handgun ban was enacted about 11 years ago.

What they didn't mention was the April 26, 2002 attack in Erfurt, Germany (19 year old expelled student shot and killed 13 teachers, two students and a police officer)...

...or the September, 2004 attack in Suzhou, China (man with a knife and homemade explosives attacked 28 children at a kindergarten)...

...or the June 8, 2001 attack in Ikeda, Osaka, Japan (intruder stabbed 13 elementary school students and 2 teachers)....

...or the November 26, 2004 attack in Ruzhou, China (intruder stabbed eight students to death and injured four others at Ruzhou's Number Two High School - The sixth such incident in China in four months)...

...or the September 28, 2004 attack in Carmen de Patagones, Argentina (15-year-old boy fatally shot 3 classmates, wounded 5 others)...

...all of which occurred in countries which either strongly discourage civilian gun ownership, or ban it entirely.

They already are - interestingly enough, in Scotland (among other countries):



Knife amnesty success
by Sarah Lay
3.2.2001

Attacks in towns across North Aberdeenshire have been significantly reduced since the launch of the Evening Express Bin the Blade weapons amnesty, part of the Safer Scotland campaign.

Launched last year, the amnesty has resulted in the recovery of more than 40 knives, with police officers seizing a further 20 since October.

The campaign allows people to leave their weapons in specially designed containers at police stations in the region.

The range of weapons recovered stretches from penknives to small swords - with some of the haul put on display at Peterhead police station.

Co-ordinating officer Gordon Farman said: "We are delighted with these results. The idea is that people could surrender their knives, place them in these drums and no questions would be asked."

The campaign has also lead to a significant drop in the amount of violent crimes committed with weapons.

Gordon Farman added: "During the last quarter of 2000, there was one serious assault, compared to five a year before.

"This is very encouraging. Not only has the number of assaults involving knives been reduced, but 60 blades have been taken off the streets."

Crap I was only kidding. Next they'll be banning sticks and rocks or maybe hammers.

What really bothers me about the newscaster information atrocities is that there are hundreds of thousands of prople out there just drinking it all in as the gospel truth.

The day that the media types start to use correct nomenclature,
magazines for clips
cartridges for bullets and all the rest,
I'll start becoming scared, because they'll start to sound like thery're making sense.
I like it just the way it is right now.
They don't have a clue.

I'll bet in any major city the cops get more than that on a single Saturday night.

I no longer rely on TV for news i get it here. I am tired of all of the fucking bullshit that is directed torwords the dumb fucking people we share this country with.The stupidity on tv makes me want to put a fucking bullet in my head. What bothers me the most is the stupid fucking people that buy everything they see on TV. Every fucking body who has a brain knows you cannot buy ammo on Ebay. you cant even fucking buy a gun part without the risk of getting your paypal account locked.

If you think the evening news is bad, try watching 60 Minutes.

The whole program is either agenda based or a puff piece for some has been entertainer.

Since when does ABC news have anything to do with facts? I'm pretty sure the two things are mutually exclusive.

Just remember that before cable TV, we only had 3 networks, ABC, NBC, and CBS. They were all liberal and controlled carefully what news we heard.

Thank God we have the Fox News Channel today.

Scotland only has a population of around 5.1 million people, and a MUCH higher percentage of people with nationalistic views. It's easier for people to become isolated in our country and slip through the cracks.

I think this is actually the case, they do not think "clips" are reloadable and you buy them with ammo in them then throw them away. This is actually true for actual military clips like the 10 round strippers for M-16 magazines. The military does not reuse them (but we do).

I remember Feinstein speaking about imported pre-ban mags during the ban saying that she though all the magazines should of been "used up" by then. Indicating she believed they could not be reloaded.
