Mainstream Media Will Mislead You

3. Lorcin Engineering .380 semiautomatic
4. Raven Arms .25 semiautomatic
5. Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun
6. Smith and Wesson 9mm semiautomatic
7. Smith and Wesson .357 revolver
8. Bryco Arms 9mm semiautomatic
9. Bryco Arms .380 semiautomatic
10. Davis Industries .380 semiautomatic
This information is from BATF from 2000, so it’s old.
I find this all very interesting about what is on, and not on, this list. I emailed 3 experienced law enforcement professionals. 2 federal and 1 local. In their experience, Hi-Points are also highly used, as are Cobra and Charter Arms. Also, the guns that are not on the list according to what mainstream media says are used so much they should be controlled: AR-15′s, AK-47′s, and Glocks. Now, crime according to the Movies and TV: AR-15′s, AK-47′s, Uzi’s, Desert Eagles, Mac-10′s, Nickel Plated 1911′s, HK P-7′s, and Walther P99′s.
The reality of guns used in actual crimes are that they tend to be cheap, and they tend to be stolen. S&W revolvers in .38 to .357, this report is as specific as saying “Ford Truck”… You are talking about the most common longest continually made double action revolver on the planet that’s been manufactured since 1908 with the first Hand-Ejector model. That’s over, by my math, a hundred years of constant production. They are going to be out there in some numbers. A brand new full sized S&W 686+ is not a cheap gun, MSRP is $849.00. But I doubt that criminals are sporting a brand new gun. Not unless they stole it in a home invasion.
This statement is not necessarily true: “If you can’t take care of a threat in 6 shots then you’re in trouble anyway.”

Obviously sometimes more is needed. I would like to think that I could get it done with 3 well placed shots, but I sure would like an additional 13!
The hype of gun control does not fit the facts. Next time you hear a “news” report on the evils of guns, remember this short report. The hype is not really the truth.
Most mainstream media cannot be trusted. "No news in the truth, no truth in the news".
