"Assault Weapons" excite the media once again

Posted: 08.25.09 01:15 AM

The fact that a very small number of people attending public gatherings recently have been caught on camera carrying firearms, has driven many in the mainstream media to focus on "assault weapons" being brandished at political events. One man was caught on camera in Phoeniz, Arizona by at least one national cable outlet with an AR 15 rifle slung over his shoulder on a strap. The media immediately -- and incorrectly -- highlighted this as an "assault rifle" being carried outside a building at which President Barack Obama was speaking.
