  •  Another misunderstanding... (11+ / 0-)

    ...of the so-called "assault weapons ban."

    The line used to be that we had an assault weapons ban that restricted the kinds of weapons people had and the number of rounds that were allowed in a single clip.
    The law did not, in fact, restrict the kinds of weapons that people had or the number of rounds that were allowed in a single magazine.

    It temporarily ended the manufacture of certain firearms and magazines with certain features -- it did not restrict ownership of these weapons.

    The fact that so many people are so misinformed about this issue -- at such a high level -- is deeply troubling.  I would really hate to think that this misunderstanding was purposeful and being used as a talking point, even though inaccurate.

    Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?
