    This was an article in the latest addition of the Sheriff's Office Newsletter. What bothers me is what the AK-47 was doing when it was recovered and that none of the other weapons were worth mentioning. I'm tired of hearing and reading the term "assault rifle". Besides being grammatically incorrect, I believe they term is being overused by the national media and elected officials to push their own agendas or to incite panic at the mention of a specific model of weapon. Once this falsehood is in the minds and language of the everyday, average citizen, laws like the Assault Weapons Ban of 94' will be easier to pass. That's my opinion, of course, but I did write the editor to express my dissatisfaction. What are your thoughts?
