Antigun media going nuts over Senate vote
Amusing. Interesting that they never once consider the possibility that a gun bill might be voted down because there were better arguments against it than for it. Instead, it is always reported as NRA or gunowners' political pressure. I suspect this is simply because the first explanation would require reporters to understand the issues involved. What is an "assault rifle"? Why is the AR-15 platform banned, and the Mini-14 protected, when they shoot the same round, at the same rate, and take magazines of the same size? How frequent are private sales, how often do criminals buy at gun shows, what are the data supporting either conclusion? Saying that one side politically overpowered the other requires no such study and reflection.
