Though their reasoning is no doubt different than mine. I guess the Pilot was expecting an endorsement of the firearms restrictions they are on record as wanting, but that just wasn’t possible as there is no evidence anywhere that any of the measures they want would have done any good.
But there is another thing to be disappointed about. The day of the VA Beach shooting Chief Cervera claimed the shooter used extended magazines, yet there is nothing in the commissioned report to indicate he had any. There was a mention of magazines, apparently in his vehicle, for the rifle he did not use. Is it possible Cervera was confused and relied on 2nd hand information, mistaking those magazines for magazines for the handguns actually used? If so, Cervera should admit the error, as his first statement is being used to advance proposed legislation.
I have corresponded with Pilot writers, and they have asked for clarification on the magazines, but the VBPD has refused to respond.
