toss in our supposedly conservative buddy, Colin Powell basically saying the same thing. These guys, for some reason, don't seem to have all that much knowledge about firearms, despite being career military men. What is the difference between an AR15 and a Mini14, other than looks? Yet FineSwine wants to ban the AR15 but not the Mini14. She's an idiot. If McChrystal and Powell go along with her, with respect to this particular topic, they are idiots too. I respect their military service, but not their information on semi auto firearms. With regards to the latter, they are wrong headed about it.
