Brady Campaign proves 'assault weapons' not defined by 'military features'
That a major anti-gun group is so transparently and unabashedly contradicting its own position is a point that cannot be made too loudly. That they are now arguing that the most expansive and restrictive "assault weapons" ban in the United States contains "dangerous loopholes" that must be closed with even more draconian gun laws is exactly the slippery slope argument in a nutshell. Semi-automatic, detachable magazine-fed rifles are probably the best general purpose weapon for defending one's life and liberty. That's why the other side cannot abide our having them.
