He said someone had used a belt as a tourniquet on him.
So either the writer made a mistake, Mike doesn't know what a tourniquet actually does but wanted it to sound impressive, or they cut off all blood circulation to Scalise's entire lower body because they really hate him. I'm going to go ahead and assume door number one.

Story is pretty unbelievable all the way around. Indiana Jones taught us years ago that whips beats guns all the time.

Yeah. There was a lobbyist who was shot in the leg and they applied a tourniquet. No way to know if the statement from the Senator was incorrect, or a reporter conflated statements made about two different people into one. Not really that important either way though.

One of the bits that I noticed was MSNBC interviewing some guy from the Y across the street who was "absolutely certain" that the weapon used was an AK47. I immediately assumed this was complete BS, since it seems like every weapon used in a shooting is described as one of a couple popularly known automatic fire capable military weapons (despite no mass shooting or attempted mass shooting I can think of ever actually using either of them, but let's not let facts get in the way of scary rhetoric). I did expect that the weapon would at least look like an AK47, perhaps a semi-auto variant, but that wasn't the case either. The weapon used was an SKS 7.62, which looks pretty much nothing like an AK47. It looks a lot more like a normal hunting rifle in fact.

This has not prevented many media outlets from describing it as an AK47 variant and calling it an "assault weapon/rifle", presumably because as far as the media is concerned any rifle with semi-auto capability can be called that. What's really funny is that this rifle was not even included in the 1994 "assault weapons" ban. It's not a "military style" weapon. Has no fancy stock, pistol grips, large hanging magazines, or any of the other purely cosmetic features that got weapons put on that list. It seriously looks like your grandfather's hunting rifle (and could very well have been used that way, given it's a really really old and cheap design).

Never let a shooting go to waste though. We've got an anti-gun agenda to pursue!!!

I wasn't sure if I should go with gbaji turning the thread into a gun debate by complaining about how liberals will turn the issue into a gun debate or poke at how he tacitly admitted to getting his news from somewhere, but hen I realized I could do both by framing it as a a lame joke about being unable to decide between the two before finally covering my tracks with a lampshade.

I had a nice post with links illustrating how there's many SKS 7.62 rifles that don't look like "Aw shucks, Grandpa's old possum huntin' rifle" but the forum ate it and now I don't give a shit.

Well, yeah. If I gave a shit, I would have looked the image links back up and recomposed it at considerably more effort than telling about it (or even this reply). Try and keep up Smiley: schooled

The same media outlets you don't watch or read but extrapolate their reactions from the pattern of posts from the mostly liberal posters on this board?

To be fair, Gbaji likely just reads the Mediate or similar right-wing blog complaining about how unfair the media is.

Not that I was paying particularly close attention, but of the three news stations that play around my office the only people that were really hysterical over the DC shooting yesterday* the other day was Newt Gingrich, and even Fox News pretty much mocked him for it.

* My time machine experiments worked, as I seem to have lost a day.
