    And again....

    "Reinstate ban on military-style assault weapons

    This country needs to re-impose a new, effective ban on military-style assault weapons.

    Banning semiautomatic assault weapons designed to kill lots of people quickly isn't quite as simple at it may appear on the surface. That must not keep us from trying.

    In fact, even given myriad defects in the now-expired federal assault-weapons ban, we could do a lot worse than essentially reinstating it as originally written. Flawed though it was, it reduced the flow of such weapons.

    Even better, Congress should consider emulating California's assault-weapons ban.

    The 1994-2004 federal ban was riddled with loopholes. The law outlawed the sale and possession of 19 specific types of weapons; it also outlawed "copycat" weapons that had two or more combat features - such as bayonet mounts, threads for silencers, pistol grips or flash suppressors. But if you made a copycat without two of the listed combat characteristics, it was legal."

    And a further host of astounding inaccuracies, misrepresentations and untruths at the link.

    Unless they were low on paper for wrapping garbage and lining their birdcages, why would anybody buy this rag? Someone needs to start a boycott of this paper. I have no doubt they are barely hanging on, so an effective boycott would put them out of business. Start with the largest advertisers and work down. Subscribers don't pay the bills for print media.

    The "Bayonet and Bayonet mounts" were never Illegal in California, that was a false myth.
    And many started to cut them off and There-by Altering the firearm and that is what messed things up for people.

    Here are the Cal regs on "Assault Weapons" from the AG website.
