Glock sells magazines that hold 19 or 33 rounds, which are banned in some states (as is the gun).
In which of the 57 states are Glocks banned?

the media was wrong when they rushed to report that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords shooter Jared Loughner used an automatic rifle to carry-out his heinous crime.
I could've told them that and I've never fired an "automatic rifle" in my life. He was way too accurate.

Early reports had mother with “parks and recreation”, could she be a source of such a firearm?

The 9mm is noted for deep penetration, until its been conclusively proven otherwise I believe that in such close proximity that several rounds entered one person, exited and struck another.

It is possible that the perp used a glock 17 magazine in his mod 19 which holds 17 shots. It can also be used in the mod 26.

I never realized “journalism” was dead in this country until this weekend. I knew it was bad, but this reporting was shoddy and very second rate.

It's also likely he was using ball ammo in the 9mm.
To shoot Giffords "through and through" the head with hollow point ammo is unlikely and would almost certainly resulted in death.
