For those of you who were ever puzzled by that line in the Gettysburg Address, a score is 20. So, "four score and seven years ago" is 87. Score does not equal thousands.
So, how does one explain the "headline" on this AP video describing the "scores" that marched against Roe v. Wade earlier this week?
Bias? Or incompetence on the part of the "scores" of AP editors?

That's a 22 rifle that the governor of California is calling a "weapon of mass destruction" because of what it looks like. https://twitter.com/GavinNewsom/status/1542872574467510272
This is an AR-15. A weapon of war. The gun industry is openly marketing these to KIDS. With cartoons and mini JR-15s.
These don’t belong in the hands of our kids or on our streets.
I just signed 2 bills that ban ghost guns and these sick marketing ploys.
BREAKING: We just filed a motion asking the Ninth Circuit to lift the stay in our lawsuit challenging California's ban on so-called "assault weapons," which, if granted, would allow the judgment striking down the ban to go into effect. Read it here: https://www.firearmspolicy.org/miller
Stole the image from a reddit post, but it appears to be an accurate summary.
The losers in Sacramento are throwing a temper tantrum in response to the ruling in Bruen. Now that they have to issue carry permits, they want to make basically everywhere a "sensitive place".
It's cool that they are pretty much admitting gun control policy is based on feelings, not data.
The data is clear that people with carry permits rarely commit crime. In fact it's not merely "clear", it's overwhelming. https://twitter.com/AnneMcCloyNews/status/1542285958703366146
Anne: Do you have numbers to show that it’s the concealed carry permit holders that are committing crimes?
Hochul: I don’t need to have numbers. I don’t need to have a data point to say this. I know that I have a responsibility for this state to have sensible gun safety laws.
