Reader Matt sent this screen grab (original from seattleguns.net) from a University of Washington test question. Click the image above to embiggen it. The creative math prof asks his charges to calculate the relationship between “state-registered automatic weapons” and murder rates in Northwestern states. But it’s a trick question! Because, as the clueless anti-2A academic is blissfully unaware, automatic weapons have, for the most part, been outlawed in the Northwest – and pretty much everywhere else – since 1934. Maybe this molder of young minds should be one of the first to take advantage of Take a Newbie Shooting day on March 9. We’re pretty sure Chris Dumm or another northwestern person of the gun would be more than happy to show him or her the ballistic ropes.
