When Banning Something That Wasn't Used In A Crime Makes Sense

Of course, if you read the headline, it makes NO sense.

Apparently nothing, even fact, will prevent U.S. Rep. Joseph Sestak of Pennsylvania, in his announcement for a run at the U.S. Senate, to clamor for restoration of the widely discredited ban on so-called "assault weapons." Not even the truth.

Adding to his credibility problem is that his statement about the need for implementing such a ban mentions the murder of three women at a health club by a deranged man. The story made national news.

Of course, Rep. Sestak either intentionally, or negligently, never mentions the fact that the criminal was armed with two handguns, a 9 mm and a .45 caliber pistol.

But then, like some of the legacy media, it appears Rep Sestak doesn't like the facts to get in the way of a good story.
