People like this think they are qualified to make laws regulating firearms? And the media doesn’t even point out they don’t even make sense?
Moylan said he has taken heat from the gun lobby for his stance opposing semiautomatic, .50-caliber military-style assault rifles.
Assault rifles are, by definition, capable of fully automatic fire and of a medium caliber and power. Therefore the sentence above is nonsensical from at least two different perspectives. I suspect a third because “the gun lobby” likely would not care if he was opposed to something that does not and cannot exist.
