They don't know what they talk about, yet they keep yapping. The first point is, the definition of a "assault weapon". Assault weapons are a select fire weapon that can fire either semi-auto or full-auto. The AR-15's in civilian hands aren't assault weapons. The only difference between them and the semi-auto hunting rifles is cosmetic.
I have invited the editorial board, on more than one occasion, to contact me. I offered a free safety class and a range trip to try and dispel the myth's that they believe to be truth. And yet I never get a response. They say we should be open minded when it comes to our rights, yet they refuse to investigate and learn.
