It's NOT a Heavy Weapon

"Using the kinds of guns Holmes allegedly fired requires training and practice, and law enforcement officials are now trying to figure out where and with whom." 
-- Dan Harris, Good Morning America

Um... no.

Using the kinds of guns Holmes allegedly fired, anyone with training and practice would have left a lot more than 12 dead in that packed theater.  We can thank God, Providence, the FSM, and Pure Luck that the nutjob was not an expert; I'm betting he was barely proficient with his weapons and just sprayed the crowd.

Perhaps if he had spent more time at the range getting stress-relieving Recoil Therapy (i.e., Fun), none of this would have happened.

New Buzz Word!  Bill O'Reilly has been railing about the need for reporting sales of "heavy weapons."  The nutjob didn't use any Heavy Weapons!  He didn't use anything that can't be found in a police patrol car.

Old Buzz Word!  The Smith & Wesson M&P rifle is NOT a "high-powered rifle," you so-called journalists.  The .223 cartridge it fires is too light to harvest deer legally in most states.  Nor is it a "machine gun."  I think I'll leave the TV off.

    A poodle-shooter is a heavy weapon?

    Try running around a field with an M2 over your head!

    These are the Ministry of Propaganda, after all. Tell a lie long and loud enough, it becomes the truth.

    The local ABC affiliate's anchor called it a "100 round magazine-clip" ... twice!

    Liberals have no use for facts as it just confuses them.

    Heavy Weapons. Anything bigger than a .177 single-shot air rifle.
    Ask the subjects living in (formerly) Great Britain. It's where the United Kingdom is now.
