    Or, that's what you would think if you blindly read this story... And I believe that was the intent of this author...

    From http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/11/05/cops.guns/index.html?eref=ib_topstories

    What can we do, as responsible gun owners, to defend against flagrant deception?... :confused:

    Two of the perps cited in this piece have a record of such 'misstatements'. But, since the allegations are perpetrated by those convinced in the sancity and thoroughness of big government, you might point out that 'assault weapons' are already controlled and regulated by the government via the BATFE and have been withouot interruption since 1934. But that would be fact and the hoplophobes don't deal in fact, they deal in emotion and rhetoric and endless repetition of false 'factoids' because they know the mass of the public hasn't any knowledge of the real facts - or the real issues, FTM. >MW
