    Texas should be ashamed of that newspaper....but as to the "automatic rifle" they must have Clark Kent eyes to see that.

    and Ernie---I'm in on your bet---its airsoft. if it was real, its worth more to sell on the streets than a petty robbery is gonna net him.
    though it is not unheard of for a criminal to be stupid. unusual, but it happens.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    The media in general, is either ignorant and/or intentionally deceptive with regard to firearms.

    The liberal media always describes unfortunate gun events with unflattering untrue terms. Guns are "high powered", "automatic", "military-style", "assault weapons" or "high capacity". Gun owners are portrayed as paranoid, irresponsible, unsteady, anti-social, recluses. Ammunition is described as "cop killer" and "able to penetrate bullet proof vests". Then they tell you that guns are dangerous in "untrained" hands, that you will be disarmed and killed by your own gun. Then the new one: lack of regulation and easy access to guns is "racist", when in fact, regulations aim to prevent minorities from acquiring weapons. Here's some famous gun control advocates in history: Hitler, Stalin, Idi Amin, Mussolini, Ghaddafi, Obama.
