Hell in a Handbasket notes a case where the media misidentifies a weapon. They call it an “MP9 9 mm. submachine gun” though it clearly isn’t. It appears to be either a DC-9 or a TEC KG-9 semi-automatic pistol. Though the fitting for the magazine appears longer in the news photo than it does for a DC9, a KG-9, or an MP-9, so maybe it’s something else entirely. Follow that link and you be the judge.
Come on, gun nuts. Help me out here.
But let’s say it IS a fully automatic submachinegun, just for the sake of argument. Was it legally purchased? Hmmm. I don’t think so. So which law needs to written to stop people from breaking laws? Or maybe it was stolen. So which law needs to be written to stop people from stealing things?
And is the misidentification of not only the weapon but the TYPE of weapon intentional or accidental?
IMPORTANT UPDATE: It probably really IS an MP9.
