- The Firearms Illiterati
I should really find a way to teach a class on Firearms for urban liberal journalists. In an attempt to make them sound scary they tend to make utter fools of themselves.
A "Sawed Off Assualt Weapon With Military Grade Bullets"?! WTF is that? What a tragic joke.
This laughable media firearms moment was brought to you by Rocco Parascandola of the New york Daily News. He seems to think that simply having ammunition near a baby's crib should be a felony. Why isn't important I guess - so long as you're scared.

Apparently it was the cops who came up with that idiotic phrase (a reflection no doubt of too long working for Mike Bloomberg) because another paper also used it verbatim, and tossed in some "cop killer" bullets to boot.
Plenty for Firearms stupidity to go around I guess.
