Gabrielle Giffords (the congresswoman who was almost assassinated by a madman during a townhall event last year) testified, along with her husband, before congress today concerning the gun control debate. Her husband made a fantastic point, the mad man came into the townhall with a 9mm that had two 30 round extended clips. The shooting only lasted less than a minute but the damage was already done. The first shot hit Gabby in the head, the 16th shot hit and killed a 9 year old. The shooter ran out of bullets in the 30 ROUND ****ING CLIP and when he went to reload he dropped the magazine on the ground and was tackled down to the ground by people there. His point was...what if that were only a 10 round clip he had to reload? The damage done would have been substantilly lower.
Plus who the **** needs a gun with a 30 round extended clip to go hunting? Are you hunting the chupacabra?
