In last night’s debate, President Obama repeated his belief that “weapons that were designed for soldiers in war theaters don’t belong on our streets.” He was referring to AK-47s and, presumably, “assault rifles.” But make no mistake, the CIC’s comment puts sniper rifles squarely in the crosshairs. ‘Cause if All The President’s Men can’t see any reason for a civilian to own an AK, they sure as hell don’t want Joe.
