Would They Have Called for a Ban on Automobiles if He Had Used One Instead?

How about hammers? Baseball bats?

Carson City IHOP rampage brings call for change in state gun laws


Nevada National Guard Sgt. Caitlin Kelley, one of the victims in the IHOP attack, responded to the shooting by calling for a ban on assault weapons, which can be purchased without a background check at many gun shows or through private sellers.

"I can't imagine why we are even selling assault weapons to civilians," said Kelley, who was shot in the foot and still uses a wheelchair. "There's no reason for an AK-47 or an M-16 or an M-4 to be in a civilian's home."

How sad is this guy? As a member of the military reserves, he doesn't even know the difference between a select fire 'assault' weapon, and a look alike semi automatic version. Select fire Ak's, M4's, and M16's can NOT be purchased at gun shows, and are illegal to posses without the proper paperwork.The general public is being duped by these ridiculous statements, and by a Sgt no less.

Then we have the Sheriff:

Washoe County Sheriff Mike Haley agreed, saying: "I don't see any logic to having assault weapons available to the public."

Uh...they're not. Aren't you glad that these are the people who are going to keep Nevadans 'safe'?
