Almost all House hearings and votes have been cancelled today.
It's to be expected I suppose when the number 3 is incapacitated.Almost all House hearings and votes have been cancelled today.
I hope everyone who was shot recovers fully and quickly.
Why am I not surprised that CNN immediately came out with THAT headline?
been said already:It's factual but it's misleading, because it wasn't just gun legislation hearings that were cancelled. Why call out gun legislation only?
Indeed. I did not mean to make light of the situation, just thought it was a little ironic.
I wasn't talking about Craig's post. I was talking about CNN's misleading headline. There is little irony in the fact that left-leaning media and politicians never miss an opportunity to make ignorant calls for gun control laws following any tragedy - it's disgusting.been said already:
No, CNN... That's not even remotely close to what an SKS is.Federal agents are now tracing the origins of the two firearms recovered at the scene of the crime: an SKS 7.62.39 rifle (a Chinese-made variant of the popular AK rifle) and a 9-millimeter pistol, according to a law enforcement source. It is believed Hodgkinson shot at the politicians and staffers with the SKS rifle.
Just as one would think you would spend the 30 seconds to google the difference between a staffer and a volunteer.More retardation from CNN. Seriously, how hard is it to get an intern to Google something for two minutes?
No, CNN... That's not even remotely close to what an SKS is.
That said, the left's mental gymnastics will be amusing to watch once they realize that this Bernie staffer used a 70 year old gun that doesn't use detachable magazines.
FWIW, there seem to be Chinese-made variants of the damn thing that have some commonality with an AK-47:No, CNN... That's not even remotely close to what an SKS is.
"Not even remotely close"? Not necessarily.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SKS#Chinese
Type 63, 68, 73, 81, 84: these rifles shared features from several east-bloc rifles (SKS, AK-47, Dragunov). AK-47 style rotary bolt and detachable magazine. The Type 68 featured a stamped sheet-steel receiver. The Type 81 is an upgraded Type 68 with a three-round burst capability, some of which (Type 81-1) have a folding stock. The Type 84 (known as an SKK) returns to semi-auto fire only, is modified to accept AK-47 magazines, and has a shorter 16" paratrooper barrel.
