    “Dumb lane”

    Did this guy text the article to the publisher, or what?

    Assault weapon? We’re not even allowed by law to own the modern day equivalent of a musket! That would be an M-16 or M-4 – they’re banned! We can only have semiauto imitations of those, with no bayonet lugs where I’m at, and there’s not even any argument against bayonet lugs – bayonets were around long before the Second Amendment. These ban happy lunatics need to take a hike!

    Wolfwood nailed the first sloppy error in that article; his citation of Wisconsin as no-carry is the other, as it’s been shall-issue since November.

    I also don’t care for his unilateral certainty of “the solution” he presents. Involuntary commitment laws have their own dangers should they be strengthened too far; how many times have you seen mere political dissent labelled as “derangement”?

    Sloppy error #3: he gets the expiration date of the Clinton ban wrong (2003 vs. 2004).

    @Seerak, Yup. Someone, somewhere recently linked to this:

    I keep hearing rumors that the AR wasn’t used in the Newtown shooting. The promised Coroner’s report seems to have disappeared. I’m not a conspiracy guy, but what is going on here?

    And it works.

    Almost all the not-gun-people I know on Facebook (as my easiest sample) seem to think that “Assault Weapons” are a Real And Special And Extra-Dangerous Thing.

    I am no conspiracy guy either. I believe the best report we have is the count of spent shell casings from teh .223 was 76-79ish. But the coroner’s report will most likely be a long time coming. The issue will be decided before then.

    I want to laugh whenever I read people on Facebook talking breathlessly about how certain cosmetic features on “Assault weapons” increase their lethality (pistol grips, folding stocks, bayonet lugs); Magazine capacity maybe, but someone with enough skill could quickly re-load an SKS with a pouch full of stripper clips…and a levergun in .30-30 hits somewhat harder than a .223
