"Assault weapons is a misused term used by suburban soccer moms who do not understand what is being discussed here."Rep. Stacey Newman, D-St. Louis, issued this response:
"Mr. Kinder, I don't play soccer. Moms throughout the country have had to learn about assault weapons in a way most of us, even you, cannot imagine."It does seem a bit callous for the lieutenant governor to be making jokes about an issue that is far more serious than him proving that he knows more about the technicalities of weaponry.
