    I dont think that they have gone far enough!
    They could have apologised for raising the fears of the public?
    Also they could have used the term fire arms instead of weapons.

    Weapons signify a object and the intent of using it

    Fire arms is a term used to Describe a design. Actually I think that we should start to refer to the rifles we own as fire arms, not weapons.

    This appears in quite a few posts now.

    How about a quick and dirty 2 paragraph explanation of the differences, and what they actually MEAN rather than just leave it hanging there

    Says it all about a newspaper when their 'recommended stories' include Kerry Katona wearing a blonde wig.

    I doubt if two paragraphs would explain it fully to the uninitiated and uninterested. One photograph might though.

    Just tell the good readers (and bad journos) of the Sun that the numbers beneath are a measure of power and then show them this:Attachment 23910

    Can't see why any sporting rifle shooter would want an AR15 clone in any calibre anyway. Just my opinion.
