golly gee where did you 2 come up with “cop killers
pistols called “cop killers” because their ammunition can penetrate armor.
a pistol is not a cop killer because of the ammunition it uses
the favored name is COP KILLER BULLETS OK
NOW HERES A KILLER REVELATION
n a new development in the continuing scandal at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives—a division of the Department of Justice—CBS News is reporting today that Barack Obama is denying all knowledge of the illegal scheme but that an ATF whistleblower insists that someone in the highest levels of the Administration not only knew about it but gave their approval… HERES THE URL

now i hope fromm my you realize 1. there is no such thing as a cop killer weapon
its COP KILLER BULLETS
commonly called BLACK TALON ammo in the old days
now days its back as a 147 grain 9mm and available for purchase under a different name
and 2 check the url obama knows all about the program and was using it as disinformation to take away gun rights
lord i hope you two do better on ohter articles than this one if you dont even know what your talking about in terms of guns and ammo
are u 2 really journalists that have been on the job awhile ????????

well chuck hawks sez a 9mm has more killing power then your so called cop killer guns and any centerfire rifle cartridge will go thru a vest o and the gun your talking about shares the ballistics of a 22 magnum
so i think think id rather have a 9mm…. whole lot cheaper and effective according to hawks
if ya dont know who he is hes just a guy thats spent his life testing out all kinds of different guns

“....interesting… but that does not explain why they were watching that car and group….  they were there because of info from a year earlier from a secret U.S. task force working inside Mexico with the Mexican Marines… when are they going to get the story right….  seems we are going politics and inter-agency fighting on this puppy and the real details behind this three year secret ops are going to be buried..
