MSNBC's Balanced Story Confuses A Few Things

Sebastian over at Snowflakes in Hell reports that MSNBC tried to do a decent job with a gun story.

And they messed it up. Sort of.

Generally balance, one of the most crushing indictments against much of the MSM is the lack of basic knowledge about firearms. Even general assignment reporters are expected, as generalists, to have working knowledge of most of the issues they cover. So what does MSNBC say or report that shows how out of touch they are?

The reference to semi-automatic ammunition. As if there is a difference between fully automatic and semi-auto ammo.

Still, its worth reading. Then pass it on.
