Howard got practically every fact wrong on todays show. First of all, the gun used is not an assault weapon. An assault weapon is an automatic - like the military spec M-16 - where you pull the trigger and the gun spews out bullets like a machine gun. The AR 15 that this guy used is a semi-automatic, which means you have pull the trigger each time you want to shoot. Plus, it was a .223 bullet. This is practically the smallest bullet available for a rifle. It's roughly the same size as a .22 caliber - very small. Hunters use AR - 15's for varmint hunting or long-range target practice. They are not powerful at all, but very accurate at long ranges - like up to a mile. Also, he did not get in in the mail or on the internet. He got the guns at Bass Pro Shop and Gander Mountain - and filled out all of the necessary paperwork and passed all of the background checks. He said a couple of other things that were wrong about the case, but I can't remember them right now. At the end he said he only read one article and got all the info he needed - yeah, to bad it was all wrong.
