    A really bad job of "reporting" from the Arizona Star on Sunday. Sorry for the late post, been kinda busy.

    "PIMA COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS — Behind the rows of gun-filled tables at the back of the exhibition hall, a large red banner shines like a beacon:
    AK-47.
    Beneath the sign, Joeken Firearms owner Joe Cox does a brisk business selling the popular semiautomatic rifle at gun shows such as this one and at his store in Winslow. The rifle is fun to shoot and easier to clean than other rifles, and, perhaps more importantly, it carries a powerful allure, he says.
    "It looks cool," Cox says. "Why do people buy flashy cars? Because they look cool."
    Semiautomatic rifles such as the AK-47 and AR-15 — commonly called assault rifles — are favorites of the warring drug cartels in Mexico, which get most of their weapons in the U.S. and smuggle them south, says the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, commonly known as ATF."





    And it goes on from there. Not quite a hit piece, but certainly mostly pulled from the Brady and VPC groups. Sigh. Fortunately they are getting pretty beat up by the pro's in the comments.
