Comments: NY Daily News Writer Corners the Market On Ignorance

Facts are a tool of the racist patriarchy, man!

Didn't Timothy McVeigh own an assault rifle magazine? I am pretty sure he was seen handling one once or twice when he was in the Army. The connection is obvious.

I also would like to encourage a little more history, dropping back from her 1984 timeline a couple of decades, to the mass murders by Richard Speck using a knife. Or even further back in time to Lizzy Borden using an axe.

Dimwits all. Gun control isn't about guns, but about control.

The only question is whether the NY Daily News finds this sort of deception acceptable.

Mandatory.

"A clip holds bullets to load magazines."

Ummm, isn't this a case of the pot calling the kettle black? I have never, in my three-score-years-and-ten plus, seen a bullet held by a clip. (Unless, maybe, in a Crossman air pistol?)

Bullets are projectiles. Cartridges (or rounds) are assemblies of case, primer, powder, and bullet, and are held by clips for insertion into a magazine.

However, having had a little fun with y'all, I am in complete agreement with your call on the foolishness, and blatant falsehood, of the Daily News article.
