I love the obligatory reference to an "assault rifle", though. That's like when they deal with a kid who's been bitten by a dog, and all of a sudden it's a "pit bull".

Funny coinkydink... I worked at Polaris Pools as a temp many, many moons ago. Can't say that I recall this dude, though!

No no no, if the guy used a scoped Winchester 70, it would be "high-powered sniper rifle."

The last time I heard the term "assault rifle" used in a news story, they said "SKS assault rifle"

Impossible!! He could not have used an assault rifle. They have been banned in the PRK since 1989 and "copycats" were banned in 1999. I thought these bans were supposed to prevent this sort of thing.
