I don't think that word means what you think it means...
"To have somebody that I consider a friend, have been with dozens of
times, shared meals with, treated as a friend, to have her be an
employee, a subcontracted spy for the NRA, is just mind-boggling. It's
so venal," Miller said. "In the battle of ideas with the gun lobby,
we're at a constant disadvantage because we're honest."
Assault weapons -- just like armor-piercing bullets, machine
guns, and plastic firearms -- are a new topic. The weapons'
menacing looks, coupled with the public's confusion over fully
automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault
weapons -- anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed
to be a machine gun -- can only increase the chance of public
support for restrictions on these weapons. In addition, few
people can envision a practical use for these weapons.
Honest, hmm? Right.
