There is no such thing as a “cop killer gun.”
The media created the term “cop killer gun.” The term did not originate “on the streets” as some “journalists” claim; nor did the term originate in law enforcement. The media made the catchy term up. To me, it is no surprise that the “news” organizations most often using the term “cop killer gun” are the same ones favored by the White House over Fox News. While I will never claim to be a “gun expert,” I have fired tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition from well over a hundred different gun makes and models. Many mainstream media “journalists” who toss out colorful phrases such as “cop killer gun” have never held a gun. Yes, I have fired the FN Five-Seven; I considered purchasing one. Yes, it is an interesting gun with an interesting cartridge, the 5.7x28 millimeter (NOT 5.7 CALIBER as reported by “journalists.”) In the end, I found nothing unique with the pistol; frankly, I found it to be an ugly brick. It does have very low recoil, which is perfect for sissies who otherwise cannot stay on target. Did the Fort Hood murderer buy this pistol because he was a master gunslinger who knew it to be the ultimate killing machine? Nope, he bought it for the same reason most people buy anything; he bought it because someone else hyped it to him. The Fort Hood murderer could have chosen from, arguably, no less than a hundred other handgun models that would have provided him the same concealment and firepower that he needed for murdering unsuspecting, unarmed people packed in a crowded, inadequately protected, so-called “gun-free zone.” If no guns were available to this murderous loser, he could have gone medieval using other methods. Murderers kill, that is what they do, and they will always find a way. ”Journalists” sensationalize, that is what they do, and they will always find a way. The truth has never gotten in the way of “journalism.” Lack of firepower and “gun-free zones” have never stopped mass murderers.
No, I will not use the murderous loser’s name in my blog. I do not honor losers.
