    Thumbs down Same dealer armed three mass killers: Pa. gym gunman, Va. Tech shooter, Ill. student

    BY Rich Schapiro
    DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER




    The sex-deprived loon who killed three women at a Pittsburgh gym bought gun accessories from the same online weapons dealer that sold firearms used in two other massacres.



    George Sodini, 48, bought a Glock Magloader and a Glock Factory Magazine from TGSCOM Inc. in April 2008, the company confirmed Friday.
    The Wisonsin-based online shop also sold weapons to Sueng-Hui Cho, who gunned down 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007, and Steven Kazmierczak, who killed five students at Northern Illinois University in 2008.
    It remained unclear if Sodini used the accessories during Tuesday's rampage.



    TGSCOM President Eric Thompson said he was saddened by the loss of life in the Pittsburgh slayings but defended his company.
    "This tragedy underscores the need for people to protect themselves and not rely only on police," Thompson told the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
    "There is evil all around us and we must be able to handle it."



    Sodini, who obsessively documented his inability to attract women, killed himself after opening fire inside an aerobics class, murdering three women and injuring nine others.

    SO I guess the next time I take an aerobics class I should take my gun with me instead of leaving it in my locker.

    Like Zardoz say's..... "The Gun is Good!"

    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    That's the biggest bunch of made up, propagand LIES I've ever seen! That shop did not ARM the killer. Yeah, he bought a magazine there and a loader for the magazine, so fucking what? He did NOT buy any guns there, he couldn't have, you can't buy guns online. But the anti-gunners of the world will go right ahead and spread the lies because it serves to promote their agenda.
    Rules? You mean we have RULES for that???

    not even the ammo, but he bought something there so did the others so they must be lacing the products they sent out with crazy dust......

    Buying Magloader and a Magazine is not "arming a killer." I guess it's simply a popular online source for Glock stuff, which means the other 99.99% of buyers either (1) harmed no one or (2) used their gun to prevent a crime/defend themselves.

    Nope, sorry, that can't be. ALL guns are eeeeeeeevil. They are incapable of being used for good.

    Leaving guns in lockers is never a good idea anyway.

    I really can't see why they would allow those weapons to be sold at gun shows. These weapons have a certain purpose, and it is proven time and time again they work all to well. I just can't see how they can sell that type of tool to any schmo off the street.

    That's just one of those questions that make you go, hmmmm.

    Please explain what you mean by "THOSE types of guns". Plastic? That's a generic term used for any gun with a polymer frame. You do realize they're not plastic, don't you? Poylmer frames allow them to be lighter weight and much more comfortable to carry for hours on end.

    Also, when you say, "these weapons have a certain purpose and it's proven time and time again they work all too well" I have to ask, yeah? So what? What are guns SUPPOSED to do? And would you buy a tool that DIDN'T do what it's supposed to do?
    Rules? You mean we have RULES for that???
