Fox & Friends on FNC doing a little thing on the AWB. Asking if it will be renewed today.

Too bad for them it expired about 7 hours ago.

Send them an email and let them know that they're wrong about that.

If the AWB were a tree, and it fell in the forest with nobody around, would a bear notice while he was taking a shit?

Semiautomatic Assault Weapon (SAW) Ban
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
September 13, 2004

Q: What was the semiautomatic assault weapon (SAW) ban?
A: The SAW ban was enacted on September 13, 1994, by PL 103-322, Title IX, Subtitle A, section 110105. The ban made it unlawful to manufacture, transfer, or possess SAWs. The law defines SAWs as 19 named firearms, as well as semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns that have certain named features. The ban was codified at 18 U.S.C. § 922(v). SAWs lawfully possessed on September 13, 1994 were not covered by the ban. There also were certain exceptions, such as possession by law enforcement.

Q: Was the SAW ban permanent?
A: No. The law enacting the ban provided that it would expire 10 years from the date of enactment, which was September 13, 1994. Therefore, effective 12:01 a.m. on September 13, 2004, the provisions of the law will cease to apply.

You could have been a little more gentle. Fox News does a great job of actually listening to reasonable arguments. The BATF website may have sufficed.

Fox in friends could say that little green men from Mars say the AWB can be renewed but I'm going with what the ATF has said. Fox News may be more accurate on a lot of things but they're still the news media and misinformed on most things.

I haven't been too happy with their reporting lately regarding the AWB - this morning was the worst. They didn't even offer the other side's arguments - they just parroted what the political police chiefs have been saying about it as well as the WRONG information about what the AWB was all about. Sigh.

All that matters to me is ... that Feinstein knows it's over. Ha Ha, Feinstein, you ancient mass of vaginal discharge. Go fester with your anti-gun bullshit somewhere else, like China or Cuba.

Just send thiem this and a link to www.atf.gov.

This was on their site moments after 12:01...
