I don't think we do ourselves any favor by calling a type of firearm a "black" weapon. A military style firearm is not more or less dangerous than a hunting firearm.

I don't care for the term "black guns" either, however that is what the media is calling them here, and sometimes much worse. The uninformed are also telling the public that they're "machine guns."

The media has painted a sinister picture over the past couple weeks about the volume of sales of these firearms. In my opinion, there is nothing sinister, but simple economics at work here. #1) they may be banned shortly, and #2) the price will most likely go up dramatically, if they are not banned.

I own an AR15 and it has all but be banned up here already. The US export rules have restricted the sale of parts for any firearm so much that we have be realistically banned right now. This new move south of our border can only strengthen our plight.
