Say what? Would someone please explain this to me?

I guess he follows to the “Two is one and one is none” principle. Smile

Well the quickest reload is another weapon.
Since we can depend on the media to get it wrong when reporting, it could have been that first rifle had a red dot on it and the second rifle had a magnified scope to better see the suspect in the wrecked car. I could see myself doing it that way.

"It’s unclear what prompted the shooting spree to begin with."

Perhaps he smoked some MJ laced with PCP or maybe embalming fluid. I bet his tox report shows something.

Should have shot him in the eye - any eye will do just fine.

Easier said than done under real world conditions.


Getting shot anywhere in the face is not a lot of fun, but the eyeball is ideal.

As you say, IF you can.

An acquaintance of mine emptied the 13-round mag of his HP into the face of his would-be hi-jacker at a traffic light. It sure wasn't pretty.

Not necessarily.

If someone had to put down a rifle, pick up another, and load it (or even just chamber a round because if it’s in a vehicle having a round chambered would be illegal in Colorado), I could probably beat his time with a reload—assuming another magazine was available, of course.

There’s no way of knowing what goes through other people’s minds in such situations, but his wanting a rifle with a different sight might have been the explanation.




“Most men … can seldom accept the simplest and most obvious truth if it … would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions … which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabrics of their lives.”
— Leo Tolstoy
