Vinny DeMarco’s Dubious Claim about Columbia Mall Shooting

Here’s a snippet from my latest piece at Baltimoresun.com 

A close read of this statement reveals either one of two things.  Vinny the gun grabber has no idea how the guns he banned actually work, or he is deliberately misleading the public. 

 
 DeMarco is conflating the two types of ammunition.  Shotguns don’t use magazines to hold ammunition.  That’s like saying football is played with a hockey puck. 


Furthermore, his use of the terms “AK-47” and “assault weapon” are meant to put the image of a fully automatic machine gun in the mind of the reader.
