... now we face the threat of hi-cap -- multiple warhead? -- cartridges.
Down in Des Moines a thugnut went out in his yard and started blazing away at this and that with something that looked to Des Moines Register reporters like an assault rifle.
No one got hurt until cops arrived and shot the perp down.
Later, a police spokesman and the six -- repeat six -- Register reporters combined to produce this explanation:
Police found a semi-automatic rifle similar to an AR-15 and a handgun with the suspect in the backyard. Several gun cartridges were found in the backyard, police said. (Police Sgt. and spokesman) Halifax said cartridges for the rifle used often contain 10 or 15 rounds.
It is simply mind-numbing that a mirvel like this was developed without any of us gun freeks having heard about it.
