So, when if a civilian attacks people with a semi-automatic handgun or rifle, the media calls it an assault rifle, but if a sheriff’s deputy attacks and kills six people with his issue AR-15, it’s a “police-style rifle“. And just in case CNN edits the article, here’s a screencap.
Like I said, if this had been you or I with a semi-auto rifle, there would be PSH from hell to breakfast about “assault weapons” and “machine guns” in the hands of civilians. Double standard?
Update: Uncle has the picture from CNN’s front page, when they still had it up. See it all here.
