As a resident of the Washington, D.C. area, I can vividly remember the 2002 sniper shootings. With each shooting, cartridge casings littered the crime scene, but none of them could be traced back to the assault rifle being used to kill innocent civilians. The frustration among investigators striving to protect the terrified public was palpable.Why would law-abiding gun owners oppose something like this? That's often the question, isn't it?

Each of the DC shootings was a single shot fired by Malvo from INSIDE the trunk of a car. They had cut a hole in the trunk just large enough to poke the barrel out and get a sight picture.
It is highly unlikely any shell casings were recovered by police through this tiny hole.
First of all, Kaveman is quite correct. The reports at the time said that no shell casings were found at the scene of the crimes.ReplyDelete
Second of all, we all know that Josh Horowitz is a liar and will be more than happy to make something up like this. Of course we should probably excuse him for this since most anti-gun loons are liars be default because the truth is never on their side. "Ends always justify the means" sound familiar?
Lastly, microstamping is crap theory and will not solve anything but raise the cost of firearms. Also, in spite of Horowitz's nonsensical ramblings, no microstamping laws that have been proposed, apply to anything but handguns. Josh's bullshit attempt at fear mongering using the DC sniper is fail yet again.
Horowitz knows all of this of course but he can't help but lie any chance he gets.
Thanks to you two for inspiring me to write a new post on this one.ReplyDelete
