Olbermann's already implicating Bush and gun-rights advocates for the massacre.
Both ABC and Olby are saying that the high-capacity 9mm magazines the shooter was using would not have been available had the Assault Weapons Ban not expired.
The Ross entry states that high-capacity magazines "became widelyavailable for sale when Congress failed to renew a law that bannedassault weapons." This is a patently false statement, containing notruth at all.
High-capacity magazines have been around for more than half a century, and the sale of high-capacity magazines was not impacted whatsoeverby the 1994 Crime Bill. These magazines were freely and commerciallyavailable, both in retail stores and online, without interruption, forthe 10-year life of the ban, the decades preceding it, and afterward.
Ross implies that high-capacity magazines are now for sale on Websites as a result of the ban expiring. Again, this is a deceptive,inaccurate statement.
The fact of the matter is that high-capacity magazines were alwaysavailable for purchase (as noted above) both online, and in retailstores, without interruption.
Update: Ace notes:
PS, I'm not terribly certain a guy armed with two pistols up against a college population armed, all told, with zero really needs all that much of a reduction in reload time to maintain his advantage.
