AP Sources: 1 rampage gun purchased legally By LARA JAKES and DEVLIN BARRETT (AP) 20 minutes ago
WASHINGTON A 5.7-millimeter pistol used in the Fort Hood shooting was purchased legally by suspect Nidal Hasan at a Texas gun shop, law enforcement officials said Friday.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.
Records indicate Hasan bought the FN 5.7 at store called "Guns Galore" in Killeen, Texas, well before the attack that left 13 people dead, one of the officials said. The pistol has been dubbed a "cop killer" by those who have tried to stop its use.
The most powerful type of ammunition for the gun is available only to law enforcement and military personnel. Gun control advocates call it a "cop killer" weapon because that ammo can pierce bulletproof vests, and its use by Mexican drug cartels worries police.
It is not clear what kind of ammunition was used in the Fort Hood attack. One official said the store records do not indicate Hasan purchased any ammo when he bought the gun.

I don’t care if he used a BB gun or a bazooka. What needs to be stressed is that our bases, our MILITARY bases, are “gun-free zones”. Like shooting fish in a barrel.
Omoslem promised to pull the USA out of Iraq, but didn’t.
That “upset” Jihad Johnny.
OBAMA LIED, SOLDIERS DIED.
The thing that makes that gun so effective is that it carries a 20 round magazine (pretty sure)
Quite worrisome. Makes one wonder about how secure our homeland bases truly are against an organized attack...
Maybe it would help the AP if when reposted, this article should be rewritten to call them “Muslim ‘cop killer’ bullets”.
But what is a “Muslim ‘cop killer’ bullet?”, you might ask. Simple. It is an *ordinary* bullet, that when fired from a gun by a Muslim, is *magically* enhanced by Islam to be able to kill police officers.
The only drawback to this idea is that writers for the AP are such a dense lot that they would probably take it seriously.
The media are idiots then. Dang, I should have figured that. They never get anything about guns right.
“Another thread is saying he has at least one FN Five-Seven pistol.
The magazines for those hold 20 rounds, with one in the gun. Also, that gun has little recoil and is relatively easy for even a novice shooter to shoot fast. If he had 2 of them, that’s 42 rounds without reloading.”
I was told this earlier today by someone with far greater knowledge of the subject than I. Perhaps this will help.
figures that the media never gets anything right about guns
The media: Comedy for the 21st century. More funny because they’re not in on the joke!
ANY gun can kill a cop ( and you and me also )!!!
Our devout Muslim, Mr. Hasan, was also stopped by a gun. And their point is? These “journalists” will use this crime to advance anything.
A Draco AK pistol would do the job also .
It is probable that many of the victims survived due to him using a 5.7mm firearm. The number of deaths would likely have been higher if he had used a gun which fired the far more common 9mm, 40s&w, or 45acp jacketed hollowpoints.
Obviously the spin talking points have been issued to the MSN by Axelrod from the heady precincts of the White House.
We need to change the language. I laugh about all the descriptions of this incident.
Words are used like shootings , killings , ( couched in terms as if the victims could shoot back.)
This happened at a med facility where there was a long cue for flu shots and other medical processing.The perpetrator calmly got to his feet , reached into his jacket, drew two pistols and calmly started walking down the rows of people , pointing his weapons and shooting them calmly, point blank, in cold blood.
This was not shootings This was not killings. This was genocidal execution. These human beings were dispatched as if they were animals.One woman was 6 months pregnant.
TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH. GENOCIDAL EXECUTION is what this was.
The same sort that happened in Kenya , courtesy of Obamas tinkering there, in 2007.
THIS WAS AN ACT OF RELIGIOUS GENOCIDE.
THIS WAS A WAR CRIME.
So says the same media who reported the muslim perp was dead!

If he’d been shooting any of the rounds you mention, there’d have been more fatalities.
I wonder if he had any of those 10 round magazine extensions? http://www.impactguns.com/store/CMMG57EXT.html
