"In Miami, authorities say the proliferation of assault weapons led to an increase in killings, from 56 in 2005 to 79 in 2006 and 86 so far in 2007.
"You just pull a trigger and 20 or 30 rounds come in a second and in those 20 rounds you're sure to hit your intended target and some innocent bystanders, totally unlike a firearm that is just one bullet every time you pull the trigger," Miami Police spokesman Willie Moreno said."
Way to go, Willie. There has been absolutely NO evidence that fully automatic firearms have been used in crimes or confiscated from the Miami gangs, but why let a little thing like the truth stand in the way of you whimpering to save your sorry ass because law enforcement has let the situation get totally out of control.
Go after the criminals, Willie. Yes, modern semi-automatics can be really really scary but if you can't take the heat then find another line of work. ANYTHING but this continuous sob story about how dangerous alla this here police work is and how pretty much ALL guns should be banned to make YOU feel safer.
