Democrat's proposal to "Ban" so-called 'Cop-Killer' Gun

CNSNews.com provides a valuable discussion of legislation introduced by Senators Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Jon Corzine (D-N.J.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Congressman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.). The legislation would ban the Five-seveN gun. The bottom line:
"It is a semi-automatic pistol, just like millions of other semi-automatic pistols. BATFE has determined that it is 'particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes,' and has approved its importation. "There is also nothing special about the 5.7mm ammunition being sold to the public," the NRA said, since under federal law, only non-armor-penetrating types of 5.7mm ammunition may be sold.

There are plenty of useful points in the piece, but it shows how much of the gun control debate relies on misinformation.
