Army Spec. William Gilbert, a frequent customer at Guns Galore, testified that he was in the store when Hasan first visited. When he pressed Hasan on why he was interested in the lightweight, easy-to-shoot semiautomatic pistol, he didn't get a straight answer.Most technologically advanced weapon on the market. So he bought what is more or less a hot-rod .22. What a dumbass. Really, is the Glock 19 or Beretta M9 THAT much more "technologically advanced" than, say, a Remington-Rand 1911 from World War II? Don't they all use exactly the same basic principles? Firing pin hitting primer that ignites gunpowder which produces hot gases that propel small lead-and-copper projectile down barrel at a high rate of speed?
“He said he wanted the most technologically advanced weapon on the market and the one with the highest magazine capacity,” Gilbert recalled.
But remember, guys: Only the police and military should have guns because they know so much more about them than us mere civilians!
