Are you aware that Boxer got on her gun ban kick as a result of a friend of hers being murdered? She wants to ban "assault weapons" and leave revolvers legal because the friend was murdered with.... A revolver.

Earlier today I posted an NBC News report about the type of weapons Adam Lanza used during his Sandy Hook rampage. That report was from December 15 and contained false information. According to the Newtown coroner, Lanza used a semi-automatic AR-15, not four handguns as the report said. The entire post has been retracted. I apologize for the error.
