The saddest part of this is thanks to spin, like the thread title, people are ignoring what he said in favor of what they think he means.
"Guns used for killing people, exclusively..."
Y'know, like a belt fed machine gun? Something that's fully automatic? I can't lay claim to having hunted animals all that much, but I don't recall ever thinking "God I wish I could shoot this deer 31 times in less than three seconds. That would make this way better."
Now, one could reasonably argue he (sanders) might include any assault type rifle in his statement, but I think that's up to him to clarify and not others to ASSUME, isn't it?
Nah. Way more fun to tweak his statement juuuuust a little bit and then scream about it.

Counter point: Where in the second amendment does it say that people should have weapons of an equal quality and type to the government?
No, seriously. Where does it say that? Where is the clause in the second amendment that guarantees access to anything better than a musket?
