OH NO!!! What if everyone had access to one of these?!?!?!?
Police Say Dead Snake Used As Assault Weapon!!!

Police said a drunken man became angry when his six-foot black snake was stepped on and killed....
Kenneth Davis whipped Michael File with the dead reptile after File's father stomped on it...

I must say that I'm amused by the use of "assault weapon". I wonder when spoons will make the list...

The use of the term assault weapon by the left is just another example of their obsfucation of truth by using emotionally laden terminology. Any weapon used in an assault is an assault weapon. Everybody with an ounce of sense and the will to read and learn, knows that the "assault weapons" ban bans firearms based on cosmetic features unrelated to the action of the weapon. The firearms on the banned list are identical to the firearms not banned that share the same action. The banned ones just have things like pistol grips, bayonet lugs, flash suppressors, while the unbanned firearms do not.

So after the NRA told the liberals that it was stupid to ban firearms on the basis of features unrelated to the action of the firearm, the manufacturers of the offending firearms removed the offending features so that their products would no longer be banned.

And then the liberals got mad because they didn't listen to the NRA and started ranting that they needed even tougher gun laws. Hey if one stupid gun law doesn't work, then two stupid gun laws must be the answer.

I hope this clarifies the situation.

Maybe this is the type of biological weapon that Iraq had.
