Bunch of twits.

..Or did I miss the part where it became some sort of El Reg'ism to post derogatory comments on all of Ted's articles regardless of quality. Kind of like this:

US stocks up on semi-automatic rifles


@ Steve - Semi?

"The AR15 is semi-automatic, but a stock AK47 is not."

Wrong, a typical AK-47 for sale in the US will only be semi-automatic. The only exception is a full auto that was registered and built prior to 1986. Even then the only way to get a full auto is to pay several hundred dollars to the BATF for the permit (if the local law enforcement will sign off on it) and then pay upwards of $15,000 for the weapon itself.



In the DC vs Heller case the US Supreme Court ruled that the 2nd Am. referred to an individual right to keep and bear arms. That means every American (except felons and minors) not just militia forces.
