Thanks Big Dog, it's tiring to have to repeat the truth at every turn (on every thread and forum) but if the conversation isn't based on simple shared understanding of terms, we're talking past each other. Oh wait, we're doing that anyway.... Must add that "assault weapon" has no such definable meaning, and in fact was not even in use before the debate attendant upon the 1994 ban. It is a meaningless term.

* Editors note: TOWNHALL News Editor Katie Pavilich is participating in a multi-day firearms training course at the Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona. Stay tuned for daily dispatches. The first dispatch is below. As the dispatches accumulate, they'll all be available here.

Over the course of the next week, I'll be spending my time at Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona learning the ins and outs of the AR-15 and pistol handling. For those of you who don't know what Gunsite Academy is, let me give you an introduction.

We teach Marksmanship – how to hit...
