The "gun show loophole" is mentioned as well as the problem of straw purchasing, but it's his treatment of the "assault weapon" argument that I most enjoyed.
Every major U.S. law enforcement organization supports strong restrictions on assault weapons. Does the gun lobby really believe the police oppose these guns because they merely "look scary"?And the funniest part is how pro-gun writers, who endlessly repeat this "look scary" motif, will accuse the gun control folks of being sheep.
Isn't it often the case that the accuser is guilty of the very thing he claims for the others? That's what we've got here. We've got hundreds of bloggers and pro-gun writers who continually repeat a handful of slogans and themes, many of which make no sense, like the reason we oppose military ordnance for civilian use is because it's scary looking.
