Alexandria Kinkaid in Recoil latches on to a brain-dead appeals court opinion, which ruled that the 2nd Amendment doesn’t apply to weapons that have a military application(!) and beats the court like a rented mule. We started to read the opinion but didn’t have the patience, unlike Kinkaid. So we missed this bit, that she found:
The opinion even mentions that the SIG SAUER MCX used by the terrorist in the Orland nightclub was “developed at the request of our Army’s special forces and is known in some military circles as the ‘Black Mamba.’”
That’s completely false, and one wonders just which wormy law clerk found it wriggling in the stains in his shorts. No, the MCX was not developed for Army Special Forces, and no, the Special Forces that didn’t develop it don’t call it the “Black Mamba,” either.
Usually, we expect Dan Rather to just make $#!+ up, not the freaking judges 4th Circuit Court of Freaking Appeals. (No doubt, some appellate lawyer will chime in to tell us that, naw, appellate judges make $#!+ up all the time. Sic semper all illusions).
