Playing on the same emotions as anti-gun crowd...

Of course many people *here* would know the technicalities, but for a story like this, when posted with the hope to be spread far and wide, I see no reasons not to add a bit of scare tactics, if it is truthful, of course!

"Assault weapon" would be even better, IMHO -- is not it what a SWAT team carries *by definition*, and is not it what some people *think* should never be in law-abiding civilian's hands? ;)

And, I am relieved to know that girl survived, really... Can not imagine what the family been through... :(
