“Remember that these reporters used to think everything was an AK-47; now, every ‘scary’ firearm will be an AR-15.”
You’re right, but the new buzzword is Bushmaster.
I paused before typing "AR-15," trying to decide whether or not to type "Bushmaster." So count me in.
Thankfully the wise legislators in Kalifornia have outlawed the Bushmaster by name. Of course, virtually identical rifles with other names engraved above the serial number are perfectly lawful as long as you remove the pistol grip, flash suppressor, folding stock, and some other nonsense.
How a mass murderer could possibly kill dozens of small children without a pistol grip or a flash suppressor is a mystery to these same legislators.
I hope all the bird hunters, many of whom just aren't too interested in protecting gun rights and who were convinced that nobody was ever going to take away their guns, are paying close attention to what is happening. After all, nobody needs a semi-automatic shotgun.
