    They own the network, they can sway opinion how they want.

    The poll on cnn.com is showing that WAY more people oppose the expiration - they want the ban.

    I think this expiration is not the end of the battle. It's too early for us to start the end-zone dance.

    Sturm, Ruger must have sent in an attack lawyer...

    The new president of Ruger is a lawyer, formerly their top lawyer.:D

    Fox parrots AP? No sir, I don't like it.

    My favorite: "'It shoots exactly the same ammo at exactly the same rate of fire,' said Davis." It's positioned in the piece so it sounds like he's referring to the M16. Slick.

    I've fired off emails to Fox news, CNN, and the local papers/news stations...all of whom have merely parrotted Oxley's article from The AP. ACK, what a bunch of crap.:banghead:

    Watched NBC morning show. Was actually surprised that they got some facts straight. "Semi-auto" Ban was mostly "cosmetic"

    Of course they had some gunsel in a gunshop that said "Now I can get me an Ar-15 and a AK-47"

    Didn't have to wait fella....been available all along.

    It was biased....but not as biased as I expected, then they showed sarah Brady. :barf:

    The CNN 'on hold' rotating new blurb makes it sound like the ban expiration will make it legal to buy machineguns from every 7-11 and WalMart. What a way to spread dis-information amoung the ignorant masses.

    The newspaper this morning had a paragraph on how AWs were (I love being able to say "were") not machine guns, and the difference between semi and full automatic. I was surprised, to say the least.

    "It was the ultimate shock," Feinstein said in an interview. "That building is one of the great economic citadels in the city, and you see this prestigious law firm. And then -- boom. Someone comes in, aggrieved, and goes right through the place."

    Wow! What a fascinating insight into that politico's twisted little brain. She only got concerned when high-end lawyers got shot. It was too close to her own elitist, upper 1% cabal. She views the AWB as a means of keeping the unwashed (those she derisively calls "Mr. and Mrs. America") in their place.

    Does anyone know that fellow in the BBC photo? The jerks have been using his picture in every anti-gun piece they put out. He should speak up and explain that the AWB had nothing to do with machine guns like the one he is holding.

    Can anyone spot all the factual errors in that BBC link?

    These are the ones I sent them... once I found their feedback link at the bottom of the page. I selected the feedback topic of "Factual Errors."

    I wrote to Chuck Oxley of the AP whose article regarding the AWB sunset was VERY WIDLEY used and was pleasantly surprised to receive a response from him today. While not overly thrilled with his response, it seems that the misrepresentations may not have been of his design, but those of his editor (which I can believe).

    My letter:
    His response:
    Forgive me, I sent my latest response and neglected to copy it first or to CC myself. If he again replies, I'll post my second letter and his response.

    The follow up from Mr. Oxley...seems pretty reasonable except for his editors changing his story to suit their agenda.

    My second letter/response:
    His latest reply:

    Sounds like we need to start some sort of foundation to take journalists and other media related folks (editors, etc.) out shooting.

    Familiarity will help our cause.

    With the additions and deletions in Mr. Oxley's article, can it be any more clear how wildly biased editors are? Is there any way we can publicize this? Anyone have John Stossel or John Lott's number or email handy?
