    All too often CNN/MSNBC/FOXNEWS/etc. will discuss recent shootings that involved semi-auto weapons while showing video clips of full auto M-16's, MP5's etc... I watched one where the topic was semi-auto and the video was a belt-fed full-auto M249. The reasoning for this lies somewhere between sensationalism and ignorance. It appears that most of these talking heads simply have no clue when it comes to firearms.... or pretty much anything on which they report.

    The general public simply see the videos and believe that's what the BG's are using.
    Hell.. I was at the range with my AR Pistol and several standard cap mags and someone showed up with some guests that had apparently never been close to a gun.. One girl asked the other what it was I was shooting and the response was "it must be a Glock".

    They don't call it the boob tube for nothing, whoever (or is it whomever? never can get that straight) coined that phrase sure got it right.

    That's either negligent or outright malicious. Terrible.

    Frank Zappa said it back in the sixties.

    I am gross and perverted
    I'm obsessed 'n deranged
    I have existed for years
    But very little has changed
    I'm the tool of the Government
    And industry too
    For I am destined to rule
    And regulate you

    I may be vile and pernicious
    But you can't look away
    I make you think I'm delicious
    With the stuff that I say
    I'm the best you can get
    Have you guessed me yet?
    I'm the slime oozin' out
    From your TV set

    You will obey me while I lead you
    And eat the garbage that I feed you
    Until the day that we don't need you
    Don't go for help . . . no one will heed you
    [ From: Song Lyrics - eLyrics.net ]
    Your mind is totally controlled
    It has been stuffed into my mold
    And you will do as you are told
    Until the rights to you are sold

    That's right, folks, Don't touch that dial...
