This is what happens when someone who does not know what they are talking about tries to present information on a topic they know nothing about.

Poser, any idea what the original source of the information is?

Guess a sling swivel makes a gun an "assault rifle"

From Gasman's link

I hope this note finds you well. Thank you for taking the time to write. We indeed misidentified the bayonet mount in the assault weapon graphic from last Friday. We checked our work with a handful of gun experts, but as it happens sometimes, in the hurry to meet deadline we missed this important detail. I certainly thank you for bringing it to our attention and we will run a correction in the paper in the next few days.

Sometimes it takes a few days for these emails to get routed to the right people. I'm the right guy to talk to and I'll make sure we get it corrected and straightened out. We work very hard to be fair and correct, but we do miss stuff here and there and when we do it's important to us to run a correction.

Feel free to send any other questions or thoughts my direction. Again, thanks for the note. I wish we didn't make the error, but we did and now I'll do my best to make it right.

Thanks,

Jonathon

Found it...Chicago Tribune. Cant find the original article but I did find the retraction.

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2013-...-automatic-guns

Original article appears to be most of a page...real eye catcher. I dont think the retraction is as visible.

Maybe I can try attaching my grenade launcher there and when it goes terribly wrong I can sue them. \:D

Smart enough to write a column and spread propaganda but cant do research on the topic you speak of, then make your self out to be a fool. IDIOTS!
