I am watching Bill Maher on HBO, and the commentary has run to the Cho killings at Virginia Tech. Bill admitted that he owns a gun, and doesn't want the Dems to take it away. But in his next sentence, he claims that the NRA wants people to have hollow point bullets and the right to own "Assault Rifles".
First, the NRA has stated that the hollow point bullets are not an issue.
Second, there is no such thing, (in reality) as an ASSAULT RIFLE. Anybody who can define what that is, is full of crap. The only thing different from "assault rifles" and the semi-automatic hunting rifles available to everybody throughout the country is the appearance of that weapon. Just because a weapon looks like it is a military weapon, it becomes an "assault rifle".
On Iraq, Bill has agreed with Harry Reid that the Iraq war is lost. Stupid is as stupid does.
There are numerous blogs that have pointed out that the soldiers in Iraq think that Reid (and Maher) should shut up. Here
is an excellent analysis of Reid's stupidity.
Senator Reid should at least be censured by the Senate. For the good of the country, he should resign.
I'll be back
