The Volokh Conspiracy and others are reporting that the Chicago Sun-Times has retracted their "assault weapons=machine guns" assertion two days early. Read my previous post for why this is a good thing.
Update: Did you know the AWB expired this morning at 12:01 AM? Well it did! Woo hoo! Assault Weapons for honest citizens again! Time to start planning that AR-15 M4orgery I want. I hear Rock River Arms does good work.
