    As I was reading Time's latest article on the hunting shooting, I was dreading throughout the first few paragraphs that the SKS used would be characterized as an all-too powerful "assault weapon" that would rouse anger and dissent amongst the anti-gun populace. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised:

    "He was carrying an SKS semiautomatic rifle, a legal deer-hunting weapon but an uncommon one because it isn't particularly powerful."

    I'm happy to see that the editors didn't jump to the conclusion that the SKS should be made illegal due to it's military-like characteristics! Anyway, I now feel happy and relieved. :)

    I think you're probably just wasting feelings of happiness and relief: the presstitutes of Time magazine are obviously saving most of their venom over this story for January or February of next year, when the leftist extremists in Congress will attempt to resurrect the so-called "assault weapons" ban. It's possible, of course, Time's presstitutes were so distracted by the holiday, they merely overlooked an opportunity to take cheap shots at law-abiding American citizens who keep and bear arms.

    "Presstitutes"?

    I'm happy with the article because it breaks with a common trend of using guns in crime to justify gun bans; I didn't see any of it here and I certaintly don't feel a need to hold angst against Time magazine. With that attitude you'll never be satisfied.
