Coalition To Prevent Assault Weapon ViolenceSubmitted by pil45 on Fri, 09/27/2013 - 18:46
"The Coalition To Prevent Assault Weapon Violence was hastily organized in the wake of the 1994 Assault Weapon Ban expiration on September 13, 2004. We organized when one of our founding members read a press release by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence that AK-47s and Uzis were "coming to [our] neighborhood this summer."
We investigated and determined that all scientific research to date shows that these weapons are rarely used in crimes. We trust that John Kerry, the Brady Campaign, and independent experts like Tim Robbins would never mislead us, so we set out to prove what the experts cannot - that assault weapons do cause crime.
To that end, we obtained the above "Colt AR-15" assault rifle from a local death merchant and configured a web-cam and lighting to monitor it 24 hours a day.
Much to our embarrassment, some astute volunteers pointed out that we needed to "load" the rifle with assault ammunition. A few days later, thanks to some generous paypal donations from our volunteers, we have the rifle loaded with a "magazine" and we again wait for spontaneous acts of violence."
