Gunman on St. John's University Campus

The anti-gun kooks are going to have a field day with this one... They are going to say "OMG! HE WAS CARRYING A .50CAL GUN!!!".

I haven't seen this pointed out yet but, let me make you, my readers, aware that he was carrying a .50cal single shot, black-powder gun! You know, circa 1776 technology. It's the kind where you dump powder in the barrel, put in some wadding, and then add a lead bullet and ram it all with a rod between shots. IF he was planning on going on a killing rampage, he wouldn't have gotten very far.

Of course, in this day and age, we have taught our kids to be cowering helpless do-not-defend-yourself lumps of flesh so, may he could have reloaded each shot while the targets cowered in a corner...
