    CNN has had some pretty balanced, if even slightly right leaning news reports lately.

    Audience being what it is, FOX is the only one leaning right. Everyone else is fighting over scraps of the left news media.

    Is CNN going to try and steal some of FOX's market share?

    I see it as "Lets ban handguns". I don't see it as any better.

    I just got that a AWB is a moot argument.

    Yup, I'd say this is a warm up piece of what's next.

    I see it as worse. They are left of president HWSNBN. He is doing enough to destroy America quickly enough for them.:steamed:

    They just haven't received their payoff from the Obama Administration lately.

    Plus, per the story, they obviously would like to see a much more comprehensive and encompassing gun ban legislation than just "assault" rifles and high capacity magazines. Hardly a "right leaning" position.

    I think some in this thread are looking at that as a report that an assault weapon ban is ridiculous, which it does show. However, the intent behind it, and the message receievd by those on the left is, "an assault weapon ban is not enough, we need to ban handguns too."

    That is how I see it.

    Apparently they weren't given the memo that this ban is just part of the incremental plan.

    And that is what I got out of it too.
    "Hey guys, you aren't looking in the right spot....these are the things you really need to ban"

    My guess would be it's a lead up to calling for bans on additional weapons.

    Yeah, that's what I came away with, "Banning assault rifles is NOT enough, we need to ban handguns too".

    I see it more of a "banning these rifles won't do anything and you know you have zero chance of banning handguns nationwide so give up now."
