This latest ad from Moveon PAC is about as misleading as it can be. Through words, graphics and sound effects, it invites viewers to think that the expiration of the ban on 19 semiautomatic assault weapons will allow people legally to buy fully automatic machine guns that can fire "up to 300 rounds per minute." That's false.

it's rather pathetic. they bill themselves as 'non-partisan' which is laughable.
The 'assault weapon' ban did precisely nothing to reduce crime and violence. The weapons banned weren't assault weapons in the first place. if you really believe that the way a gun looks makes a difference to how much harm it can cause, then i'll be happy to try to disabuse you of that misconception.
