With the recent killing of innocent victims in Colorado, I want to share an opinion on assault rifles that was written by Bob Poe.

“Assault Weapons Kill” by Bob Poe, Orlando, Florida

“Assault weapons are just that. They are not hunting rifles unless your prey is human. No self-respecting sportsman would use an assault rifle to hunt quail, deer or even bear. Assault weapons were designed for the military to kill, not hurt or injure enemy combatants. Imposing restrictions on assault weapons is no more a limit on the 2nd Amendment than the ban on a citizen’s right to own surface-to-air missiles, land mines or hand grenades.”
