A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

That "assault weapons" ban: It's gone. The thing was useless anyway -- based on not what particular guns could do, but instead what they looked like. MoveOn PAC's latest ad is, according to the sometimes nonpartisan FactCheck.org "about as misleading as it can be."


Through words, graphics and sound effects, it invites viewers to think that the expiration of the ban on 19 semiautomatic assault weapons will allow people legally to buy fully automatic machine guns that can fire "up to 300 rounds per minute." That's false.

It has been illegal to buy a machine gun without federal clearance since 1934, and remains so.


Remind me which political party it is that keeps accusing the other of "scaring" the American people?
