Well guys, It looks like this Beltway Sniper guy is gonna unleash a whole new wave of Assault Weapon Bashing, are you ready? Already the news reporters talk about the uncanny skill and precision with which this guy does his deadly work. I keep trying to tell my coworkers that I could take any of them, train them for 15 minutes at the local range with a nice, scoped rifle and have them making many of the same "clean" shots that this sniper is doing. They are already vilifying the .223 round as if it were something cast of pure evil and good for nothing but illegal slaughter of innocent civilians in supermarket parking lots. Owners of "assault weapons" are once again being depicted as trailer-park nut-cases and those who not only dare to own such offensive weapons but also train to use them safely and accurately are only one step away from being the Spawn of Satan himself. Please return your seat to the upright position and fasten your seat-belts kids! It's gonna be a bumpy ride!
