I think we should ban assault rifles ...’ etc.” We offered to publish a correction if she could access a recording of the interview; regretfully, she could not.

According to researchers Dr. Clare Gollnick and Emily Wilson, the dark web is less of a science fair filled with the world's worst people and more like your average teenager's bedroom.
