[url]http://www.timesunion.com/AspStories/story.asp?storyID=65157&category=FRONTPG&newsdate=10/25/2002[/url] I wish I could tell Kristen Rand, the legislative director for the Violence Policy Center in Washington that ANY object is an assault weapon when used in a violent fashion when shes speaks of the post ban Bushmaster,[i] "It complies with the letter of the law, but it is still an assault rifle,"[/i] In that matter, if you take a Daisy air rifle and put enough BBs in a person to kill them, I guess Daisy air rifles are assault weapons too. And oh yeah, who in the hell buys a verticle handgrip rifle so they can shoot from the hip, Ms. Rand? [b]ArmaLiter[/b]

I called the VPC last night and left this message: [i]"Would the VPC be happier if the DC Snipers had used a 1750 Kentucky Long Rifle? After all, every single shot could have been made with that rifle instead of the evil black gun. Would that make things better for you?"[/i]

But Kristen Rand, the legislative director for the Violence Policy Center in Washington, a gun control group, said that the XM-15 seized in Muhammad's car still had features that mimic an assault weapon, including a pistol grip that makes it easy to fire from the hip and a detachable magazine that holds 10 rounds. "It complies with the letter of the law, but it is still an assault rifle," Rand said.

Let's start a campaign to inform this thumb-sucking moron of the truth. I think a new round of calls is in order. [pissed]

You do not have to kill someone to assault them with a "weapon"...

While the Fed is charging the defendant with illegal possession, they should also find out how he came into possession of the firearm and, if he bought it from a licensed dealer, prosecute to the fullest extent. Unless NICS failed. That never happens.

I went to the Tacome gunstore where he bought his gun and picked up a case of PMC .223 ammo. There was some chick out front with a camera.

Did you give her the one finger wave? [:D] I'm sure the store appreciates your support.
