Attorney General Eric Holder said today at a Senate hearing that he believes he once shot an AR-15, a so-called assault weapon:
"This committee will be taking up legislation about banning 'assault weapons,'" said Senator Lindsey Graham. "Are you familiar with the AR-15?"
"I'm familiar with it, yes," said Holder.
Graham interjected, "Just generally speaking--"
"Yeah," said Holder, "I think I might have shot one at the FBI academy."
An "assault weapons" ban would likely make the AR-15 illegal.
