I don't think Shapiro did such a good job. That's the problem conservatives have. They go on talk shows and let the hosts get away with not answering our questions. They are much better at avoiding the tough questions or outright lying. Also, who says an AK-47 is an assault rifle? It is an ominous looking weapon but it is just a semiautomatic weapon. Once again, the left picks a target and demonizes it and gets its ideas accepted as the truth. Shapiro made good points but also caved on some points. We have a right to own guns. If that doesn't suit the Marxists let them change the constitution via the amendment process rather than through back door legislation.

That is a distinction that has not been argued.

Those on the left demonize 'assault weapons', without a clear understanding of what they are. A good point would have been for Ben to ask Piers "Just what is an assault weapon." Then, let him go through his explaination. When finished, have a picture of an M-14, an M-1, and then ask Piers if these are 'assault weapons'.

I can almost hear him go "Clearly they are not". Then Ben could look and say you twit "Clearly you do not understand the difference between semi-automatic and automatic weapons."
