Fox news corrects deception by Moveon.org. Look at the bottom of the webpage to see it at their site.


Ad Assault

A new ad by Moveon.org's political action committee shows a picture of an AK-47 assault rifle, and says, "this ... can fire up to 300 rounds a minute. ... In the hands of a terrorist it could kill hundreds ... But on Sept. 13th George Bush will [have] let the assault weapons ban expire."

In fact, such a weapon has been banned since 1934, with the gangster-era passage of the National Firearms Act. According to the non-partisan Annenberg Public Policy Center, the only way to legally own such a gun is to undergo an extensive background check and obtain signed clearance from a local law enforcement chief.

I noticed they started getting this right about September 13th. Seriously, I think e-mails from folks like us finally got through to them.
