The following is the Associated Press report on the standoff between police and the man who they say opened fire at a barber shop and a car wash on Wednesday in upstate New York, killing four. But as the gun debate rages, it’s interesting to note that the gun used by the killer was not an automatic weapon, a so-called “assault weapon,” or even a handgun. Instead, it was a shotgun — the type of gun Vice President has been touting as a better protection option although it’s unclear what exact shotgun was used.
Other than the Blaze zero media mentions of this interesting fact.
Shotguns are awesome powerful in close quarters combat when you don’t care who dies around you. The damage per shot is staggering compared to that of “assault” rifles. … No matter to some. They actually want to ban everything. It’s just one gun at a time for these folks.
