The gun was his grandfathers, and he stole it. The grandfather noticed it was missing from his barn after the shooting and believes it’s the same one. It’s a Ruger Mk. III target pistol, which is probably one of the most commonly owned pistols out there. I own two, one Mk. III and the previous Mk. II generation.
I’ve noticed that chatter from the gun control crowd has been very light today. You almost have to wonder if they are disappointed it wasn’t something they could paint as a high-power bullet spraying death machine. Or, perhaps they are merely tired. Two days of exploiting tragedy for political gain can take a lot out of you.
