We've tangled w/ this twit before.
He knows he can't defend the fact that MAIG wants to ban private sales and litigate dealers out of business thereby no legal sales can be conducted, that they want to pass laws eliminating due process, etc. so he, as usual, ignores those points and jumps on the one thing he thinks he can attack:
Simply not true. MAIG doens't take a position on semi-autos. Prove to me where they doOK. They don't have an 'official' position on their website. Here's what their founder has to say on them:
The Mayor was quite blunt in his criticism of the sale of automatic assault rifles. "No rational person thinks you should be able to sell a rifle that's advertising as able to bring down a commercial airliner," he said at Monday's press conference. "Nobody thinks we should be selling armor-piercing bullets -- you don't need that if you're hunting deer or elk."And from the MAIG push-poll:
A federal law making it illegal to manufacture, sell, or possess semi-automatic weapons, sometimes known as “assault rifles.”And funding comes from the Joyce Foundation.
So their founder and leader wants them banned to the point of hysterics. They use wording to try and create opinions against them and they get hundreds of thousands of dollars from a foundation that spends MILLIONS to try and ban them.
But they don't have a position on them. Really they don't.
