It isn't really a surprise that a federal judge would overturn the AR-15 assault rifle ban. The gun is the most lethal weapon we have. It was used in the Pulse Nightclub assault in Florida, the mass shooting in the church in Texas, the Pittsburgh synagogue, the music festival massacre in Nevada, the terrorist attack at the medical facility in San Bernardino, and the most tragic because of the students killed, the Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida and Sandy Hook kindergarten class in Connecticut.   

How crazy must Roger Benitez be to overturn the ban on this weapon? Doesn't he pick up the paper and read with horror the news accounts like the rest of us?
