The Glock 7 is REAL!

Luckily a news insider has the scoop for us!

Fact checking in our news media is either dead, or deliberate.

MSNBC did a "scathing" report on the gun industry and the correspondent asked the report about how lethal the GLOCK 9 is that the Tucson shooter bought... hilarious how obviously unknowledgable they are

Didnt the two kids from Columbine prove that during an Assault Weapons Ban it was possible to purchase guns that were banned under law?

Who is this lady anyway? Her pauses kept making me think a video clip was coming then she kept talking and not making sense to me

Watch the end of the video. She claims you can't fact check gun information because the internet is dominated by pro-gun sentiments, and that the only reliable source of information is the library. She goes on to discourage her viewers from searching Google about the issue because of this, and because it doesn't have anything to do with porn (which apparently is all Google is good for). At least it was something like that; I can't make this **** up. She rambled on and on about Google and porn when talking about how you can't find reliable gun facts online.

Here's the quote, verbatim from the show;
Quote:
Laws about guns are one of the few things in the world that is un-google-able. In all the things that all of us that work on the show research all day long everyday and all of the days that we work on the show there's a tiny handful of topics that you literally can't do your research about on Google.

But laws about guns; that is the one thing that has nothing to do with sex that you can't get any useful information about by Google-ing. Because the gun lobby so completely dominates the debate. Because of that I will not even advise you to do your own independent research about this online. You have to do it at the library and in books. You will not find trustworthy, unbiased, about this online. I'm telling you.
This would be comedic gold if I didn't know a ton of people probably watched that and agreed with every word of it.

Maybe they went direct to Glock and someone slipped up and mentioned the model number for a single stack 9mm.

I never knew that the 7.62mm is now an artillery round?

Never let a good tragedy go to waste, huh.

There was sooooooo much mis-information in that clip it is astounding.

That and it appears that they don't want you to Google anything to educate yourself.

She's little more than a massive waste of skin and oxygen.

She said that America is the only country in the world that has a problem with shootings. Somehow I highly doubt that and think she is talking out of her ass. But you know people now adays believe anything so...

Might have been, but according to this link, it was "composite". That site has the actual prop used in the movie, now cut in 3 pieces.

Jesus...

I think I my IQ just dropped from watching that... Absolutley no context to any of the hardware mentioned. Plastic gun? Come on... How about plastic bullets??? 7.62mm anti aircraft??? And the gun laws for my state are posted clearly on the State Law Enforcement Website. Needless to say.. I know I'll be purchasing some more Hi-Cap Mags because another ban is defineately lurking.

So...is she trying to suggest that there was ever a plastic gun? Or that Glock originally had an all-plastic gun? I don't get it...

She made it sound like the US is the only country with nutjobs killing people with guns.

So, when they use a car bomb in Northern Ireland or Beirut or Lebanon, it is somehow different?
