No thanks, I'll stick with my state training.
I have no doubt he could kill cause serious harm or even death to 2-3 people with a knife. There is a reason a knife is considered a deadly threat within 20 feet. It's the 4 other people that would have most likely run away in that time frame that make the same level of carnage unlikely. Apparently Guns and Ammo didn't explain that living targets move when threatened.
As far a sneaking a shortened weapon in, sure he could do that. I suppose we could assume he has the same black market contacts that you seem to have, but the fact that he bought the gun "legally" seems to make that a questionable claim.
BTW you still haven't answered my question: Why shouldn't private sellers follow the same laws as dealers? (and no, saying private people has sex without regulation isn't answering the question, unless of course you think paying for sex in normal in a private exchange)
"State training?" Care to elaborate? Lay your credentials down and I'll do the same.
As for your belief that he'd be able to kill 2-3 with a knife and the rest would escape:
October 2008, Seoul, South Korea: 5 dead, 7 wounded, 4 seriously in a knife attack.
July 2008, Shanghai, China: 6 police officers
stabbed to death, 4 wounded.
June 2008, Tokyo, Japan: 4 killed, 8 wounded with a knife.
March 2008, Sitka, Alaska: 18-year old kills 4 with a knife.
March 2008, Tsuchiura, Japan: 2 killed, 7 wounded by man with a knife.
May 2006, Berlin German: 41 wounded, 6 seriously by drunk 16-year old with a knife at train station.
September 2004, London, UW: Mentally ill man kills 4 and wounds 2 with a knife.
June 2001, Osaka, Japan: 8 dead, 15 wounded by Janitor with a kitchen knife.
Thanks for conceding that he could have taken a long gun in. Remember this was a big guy, could have easily taken a couple of long guns in concealed. If it had been a shotgun we'd be lucky to have any survivors.
