    I watched Fox News Saturday. They had a segment that pertained to explaining the difference between a semi-auto rifle and a fully automatic rifle. This was filmed at an indoor shooting range in Texas that was used primarily for training students to safely and efficiently utilize various handguns, rifles and shotguns. As a former firearms instructor, prior to my retirement, I took special notice of this. At the onset an instructor showed the usage of a semi-auto rifle. He inserted a magazine and fired approximately 6 shots at a target. He then removed the magazine, (not a"clip" that this is normally referred to) and assured the bolt was open. (This was proper). Then the next, (so called instructor), inserted a high capacity magazine and fired possibly 30-40 rounds out of a fully automatic rifle. He then placed the rifle on the bench in front of him. He did not remove the magazine nor did he check for the bolt to be locked open. Then the head instructor and the Fox News reporter proceeded to conclude their presentation directly in front of this gun that was not cleared. This is bull$hit and if we are to win this battle; we can't have these so called professional representatives acting like "rubes" in front of the media. Jeeeeez. Upsetting to say the least. Ed

    Fox has an website and you can send them your comments it would be interesting to see if you got a responce. I agree I've seen that kind of stuff on all sorts of news outlets and it's clear they don't know what they are talking about

    Only certain people would "catch" that Ed. 99% of the media has yet to figure out what "weapon" means let alone Assault!!!

    A kid in school with a number 2 pencil has in his/her hand a "assault weapon"

    But then they don't have the real "Websters" in school rooms anymore!!

    I support Fox news. Fox is the only network which supports the second amendment. They are the most trustworthy to give all the news, not just the stories that look good for the most corrupt administration thats ever been. ed nichols

    Well, was the safety off or on?

    Did anyone see that?

    Looks to me like the Senator not only is pointing that thing in the direction of her onlookers, but also has her bugger hook on the bang switch. It figures !!

    I remember the article when it happened. apparently the magazine is in the gun, the bolt is foward, the safety is OFF, her finger is on the trigger AND at one point she waved the AK over the heads of the audience.. I woulde bet that it is her personal AK.

    She's even scarier without the gun. Why oh why do these people get voted into office and continue to be re-elected? BT100dc

    Just in case some out there don't understand "Assault Weapon" according to its real meaning.

    Warning, the xray might be u-nerving to some.

    I seem to catch flack from some people when I explain to them what a Assault Weapon is or can be. IT is not just AR's.
