Here's another interesting tidbit about this weapon...
"The New York Police Department and Israel's Shabek are two notable forces that use a modified Glock 19 as its standard issue service pistol. The NYPD has 12 point NYD connectors in its pistols; and the Shabek, uses the Glock 19C which features an extended slide stop, meprolight night sights, an extened magazine release and a 3.5 pound trigger." read more here
Despite the howls from the gun-grabbers - it seems that the Glock 19 is a weapon worthy of your tax dollars - that is - when it comes to arming the enablers of tyranny. If you are an American citizen you'd better get'em while they're hot.
But what else is "interesting" when it comes to the Arizona shooting? After all - isn't it something that there is no video of anything? I mean damn - with all the cell phone video cameras etc... there is a dearth of expected footage. But - maybe folks in Arizona don't carry video equipment.
When the shooting happened we were told the shot to the Representative's head came from the back then they changed their tune to say that the shot came from the front - or maybe it was the other way round? Whatever. We must expect incompetence when it comes to medical care in the United States. And we should give a little latitude to the docs since the whole situation was a mess and they were probably busting ass trying to save lives. But for me - I haven't seen any evidence of anything. Nothing.
It is all hearsay - TV talk - but I haven't seen anything but the usual shills using this event to eliminate the Bill of Rights from Americans. Pretty sad.
Wait - that's an interesting thought - what if this shooting was planned? I'm not saying it was or wasn't - but look who benefits from this tragedy. Those intent on re-upping the NAZI PATRIOT ACT need an emergency to serve as smokescreen in the media while scaring the soccer moms into sending their kids into yet another war for oil, drugs, or other natural resources:
"Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) has introduced a little-noticed bill that intends to once again renew controversial provisions of the Bush administration's USA Patriot Act that are due to expire this year.
Let's be honest with ourselves - the US public is sick of this police state and they want their "representatives" to stop the madness. Although the cowardly congress would prefer to ignore the ever-awakening public - they are realizing that they will be unemployed soon if they don't start to do what they were hired to do - represent WE THE PEOPLE.
But the puppetmasters that bankroll our representatives-in-name-only - know that they must do something to ensure that the representatives remain more scared than the US propagandized-public. And when it comes to herding the Congress of the United States like the sheep they are- what better to get said sheep to run like "Chicken Little" and pass anything in a paroxysm of fear than for a "lone gunman" to shoot a Congressperson? Mighty convenient huh? And what a weapon to do it with - that is - if you had a coupla' shooters there to make sure the body count and intended victims dropped as necessary:
"*** Glock 19 ***
The Glock 19 takes the opposite direction of the longslide G17L: compactness. The G19 is essentially a reduced version of the G17. It's a half inch shorter, a half inch longer and hold 15 rounds instead of 17. read more here
It seems that the Glock 19 has a special feature making it difficult to trace the origins of the bullets. I didn't say impossible - but....:
"Polygonal rifling prohibits the examiner from measuring the width of land and groove impressions because the lands and grooves have a rounded profile instead of a well-defined rectangular profile.
