    I've not seen that any news media has yet release this pic. But here is the pic of the Glock used by Roof in the Charleston Church Mass Shooting this week. This is from his wwww.lastrhodesian.com blog.

    It looks like he had some type of laser sight installed on the pistol.

    So far I have not yet seen anyone in the press demonizing the Glock as being a "bad" gun, despite it being used in this horrendous tragedy. Although one can only wonder if high capacity handguns like the Glock might be targeted in future legislation.

    What is the capacity of the Model 41, anyway? I'm really not much of a Glock person. The surviving witness to the mass murder said that the killer reloaded his pistol 5 times.

    My guess is 17+1 just like the Glock 17. Someone will correct me if I am wrong.

    Here is another photo from his blog showing him trampling on the American Flag, while spitting on it.

    Clearly this is a highly disturbed young man. His fantasies and rants written on his blog are quite insane in nature.

    I don't understand why the press cannot see this incident for what it clearly is: an aberration caused by a mentally ill person. Roof even writes in his blog that he could find no white supremacy groups in the Columbia area. Apparently his delusions were all fueled by stuff he saw on the Internet.

    How can that be stopped? I don't think that any of the proposals that have been put forth so far would have prevented this tragedy.

    No, the original Model 21 was 13+1. But I don't know if the newer generations and models have changed that or not.

    Glock 41 is 13+1 just like a g21 - the slide is longer not the grip.

    The Aurora theater shooter had an AR-15 and the drum magazine jammed after firing a few rounds.

    Not surprising, given that the Glock brand includes numerous models and is one of if not the most popular sidearm brand in this country. You don't see many Webley-Fosberrys used in mass shootings, but then aren't many of them to start with.

    Exactly.
    This is like saying every Ford is designed for extra lethality because there are a lot of Ford involved accidents.
    That Huffington Post "article" is a joke.

    This shooting would have been way worse with a less mediocre pistol used.

    How do you figure that? 9 out of the 10 people that he shot died. There was an 11th person in the room, but he purposely let her live so that she could tell the story of the murders.

    That is easily the highest kill ratio ever in any mass shooting incident.
