Hype and reality

From Dr. John Lott regarding the mis-named Assault Weapons Ban:
The new FBI crime numbers show that the only casualty from sunsetting the ban has been gun-controllers' credibility. Letting the law expire has at best only showed its uselessness. The real question is how much longer can the media take such hysteria seriously when it is so at odds with the facts.
Sarah Brady and Chucky Schumer have had to eat their own hysterical words from last year, when they predicted blood in the streets, children armed with Uzis and AKs, and terrorists running amok with our own weapons.

I just checked, and the sky is still not falling.
