Illinois: The assault weapons myth

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Gov. Quinn wants to outlaw the sale and possession of "assault weapons," insisting that "there is no place in Illinois for weapons designed to fire rapidly at human targets at close range." He doesn't mention that even if his ban were to pass, there would be plenty of other legal firearms that can be used to fire rapidly at human targets at close range    or long range, for that matter.
Assault weapons are just ordinary guns dressed up to look scary. Quinn is making a mistake to buy the ruse.
