Democrats often say racist, sexist, and other offensive things. They just rarely get called on it, for once, someone actually noticed. If only they had noticed the "typical white person" comment by one of the other bigots in the party.
Was it really an assault rifle or just a basic semi automatic rifle? Its hard to imagine a drunk who acts like this with a $10k assault weapon. The press rarely gets it right, ask a marine to define assault rifle not a reporter or politician. At the very least anything suitable for "assault" would have 3 or 5 round burst fire, if not full auto.
