Yet another this is pitiful moment
Illinois governor Blagojevich has sent a press release announcing a push for a .50 caliber rifle ban and a state ban on "assault rifles." It's full of bombast and mis-statements, but I found some humor in the Brady spokesman quotation:
"We are grateful for their efforts to keep us safe from the threat posed by weapons with a high capacity magazine, silencer, automatic trigger with a pistol grip and the other dangerous features of such insidious weapons,” said Jennifer Bishop of the Brady Campaign To Prevent Handgun Violence."
Automatic trigger ... a dangerous pistol grip ... silencer ... gad, you'd expect their designated spokesman to know a *little* about what they want to outlaw. But then, apparently neither does the governor, who quotes her.
