2. They did better than I expected.

Sadly, they still got very confused with "assault weapon" vs assault rifle, as would be expected.
They did not even try with "high capacity magazine".

4. It is a good starting point for those who know nothing about guns.

As in, the vast majority of the posters on this site.
The mistakes in the article will cause problems for anyone wishing to debate pro-gunners.

Plenty of good folks here in the gungeon are willing to answer questions from those actually willing to ask.

5. Thanks for being available. I find i post lots of gun threads in general discussion. I think

that is a good change in that it has gone mainstream. I think separating the anti vs. pro assault rifle folk was a brilliant idea. Fewer NRA types. A great relief.
