The Assault Weapons Ban

Ya'd think a presidential candidate with pretensions of trying to woo over middle-of-the-roaders and those a few steps farther to the right (and especially those southern voters) would have some understanding of what the Assault Weapon Ban (less than 300 days 'til the Sunset!) actually does.

But nope. They don't.

It doesn't ban the weapon used by Malvo for hunting people. Though many states do ban that weapon for hunting deer - because it's ineffective!

It does ban the semi-auto version of the AK-47 (full military config) which actually happens to fire a cartridge suitable for hunting deer.

See my other rant, here.
