i dont since they are not designed to assault people.
there has only ever been one rifle designed that is specifically an "assault" rifle. the Sturmgewehr 44, it translates out from german as assault rifle model 1944.
the ar10 and ar15 are armalite rifle model 10 and armalite rifle model 15. no assault anywhere in the name. the ak47 is not an assault rifle either. its full name is Avtomat Kalashnikova (Автомат Калашникова) model 1947. which translate out to automatic rifle designed by kalishnakov. no assault in the name there either.
since the term "assault rifle" is linked solely to nazi germany its little wonder the news media tars every firearm with that term.
please dont use it unless your referring to a stg44
