Poor little Piers Morgan . . . can't win the argument, so he starts bullying again! Oh, by the way, Ben has to do a little more research on "assault weapons." Ask an American soldier or Marine if he'd like to carry an AR-15 into battle, and I GUARANTEE you he will say NO. An AR-15 is NOT an assault weapon; it is a semi-automatic rifle of modest caliber. It differs not one whit from a myriad of semi-automatic rifles that simply don't LOOK LIKE AN M-16!!! Here's an incidental aside for you: It is possible to modify a Browning Hi Power 9 millimeter handgun to fire automatically. Care to guess how many rounds a minute such an illegal handgun could fire? 600 rounds/min.--that's right; think about it!!!
