    All in a name

    The term "assault weapon" makes a gun seem more ominous than it is. Automatic Arms is a much better name, only my opinion. And seeing how the first English patent was applied for in 1718 the naysayers don't have much of a leg to stand on with the whole "Constitution" argument and what our Fore Fathers had in mind. Multifiring systems were first thought of in the 14th century and will never go away. Thank God. That's a no for me on banning any weapon.

    Just voted no. Still over 98% no. Yay.

    The spread in favor of no may be in part because US News tends to be a bit to the right of center on political issues (certainly compared to Time & Newsweek anyway).

    While I was there, I saw another interesting US News discussion called "Debate Club - Did the Sandy Hook Shooting Prove the Need for More Gun Control?"

    In this feature, three experts took the "yes" side and three took the "no" side. As rated by the readers, the "no" side debaters placed 1-2-3; the only "yes" debater to get more favorable than unfavorable votes placed 4th. I've not had time to read the positions yet as I just saw the summary myself.
