The following story just confirms to me that the media has no idea when it comes to guns. http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&ncid=716&e=1&u=/ap/20020807/ap_on_re_as/afghan_fighting_6 Often when the media talks about the need to ban "evil AK-47s" in this country, they'll say civilians (whom they call "gunmen") are running around with fully automatic AK-47 assault rifles that they've been able to "easily obtain through the gun show loophole." In the story above, they're saying the base attackers (whom they DON'T call "gunmen") used SEMI-AUTOMATIC AK-47s, which I find ridiculous. I'm sure those guys ALL had REAL fully automatic AK-47s. As usual, the media got it wrong.
