Government's twisting of reality

The Obama administration has announced its intention to ban reimportation of World War II era M1 Garand rifles.

To the best of my knowledge, the only time the Garand was used in a domestic school shooting was when it was a service weapon deployed in the hands of the Ohio National Guard.

From Ammoland:
When gun control advocates talk about the United States’ history of mass shootings, they seldom include the Kent State Massacre. While they oppose the civilian ownership of “military style” weapons, they are more than willing to support the militarization of domestic police forces. But I must warn against allowing gun control advocates to frame the argument in a way to include antique rifles in the “military style” category.
