Localized 'Assault Weapon' Hysteria

Say Uncle writes of Knoxville, Tenn. police, who say that people who possess military-style semi-auto rifles are a danger to the public.

NOTE: Interesting. The police everwhere need to get a better handle on just who owns such firearms. I live in the 15th largest U.S. city. In my county alone here in Central Ohio, I know judges, attorneys, police, software developers, contractors, sales people, Realtors, commodities day-traders, even politicians, who own scary-looking black rifles. They are no more criminals than the police chiefs and other politicians who demonize this commonly used competition tool.
