The term "assault rifle" is obviously a

verbal tool of the antis.

If, for instance, you were to consider any

Mosin M44 made before 1945, it was used on the front

line, at the Eastern Front, in WWII, to storm Nazi trenches, and

retake what was left of the Russian towns and cities. With

Bayonet extended, and blasting away with rounds roughly

equivalent to the 30.06, and a steel buttplate on the stock,

this rifle was used to blast, stab and smash the Wehrmacht into

submission. But the antis consider this simply a

"bolt-action carbine, relic".(?????????????????)

HOKAY...

As stated previously, take someone new shooting. WE

have truth, reality, and self-empowerment on our side.

The antis merely have propaganda, hysteria, and the fog and

stench of lies.

The National Firearms Act, and Hughes Amendment continues to infringe our 2nd Amendment to protect the people against global and domestic tyranny.

The National Firearms Act was put into place over one law abiding citizen using a machine gun in a criminal act.

My Colt M4 with a Trijicon Acog should be select fire along with the other thousands of Colt's our American troops carry oversees.

Repeal the Hughes Amendment!!

In law, assault is a crime which involves causing a victim to apprehend violence. (Wiki).

If thats the case, no weapon is An Assault weapon unless its used in a crime and that leads to every weapon being an assault weapon if it is used in a crime.

Its really a stupid term. A classification that gives both an action and an object but doesnt describe either with any accuracy.

So I really could support the actual activity of attacking someone illegally with any type of weapon being illegal but it already is illegal to do that so whats the point! These types of laws are extensions of ones like being forced to have your vehicle inspected; no sticker, you are breaking the law, pay the fine, no matter if your driving a brand new car or an old piece of junk. You and your car are illegal because you didnt pay to get a sticker, not because it caused damage or was proven to be a hazardous device.

This is like the Cellphone Texting Laws, just money makers! After all, we already had distracted driving laws, they just arent as easy to give as dispensing toilet paper. The Government cares not if intent, cause or outcome are negative, just ban something then collect big bucks prosecuting crimes committed against a law not for attacking people.

Zoey, the nineteen thirties case that Roosevelt used to get the NFA passed wasn't even a machine gun, it was a sawed off shotgun. But back then, just like today, if it LOOKS evil, then to liberals, by God, it ISevil

There have been nutcases around since Adam and Eve came out of the garden.

What I have read in gunsmithing books is that the definition of a assault rifle is a rifle with the ability to fire in both semi-automatic and automatic. But if you think about it, "assault weapon" isn't a real thing, just a liberal gimmick to make rifles like the AR-15 seem like a mass murder machine.

assault weapon or assault rifle is a term made up by the media and gun hating politiciacians to paint certain types of military looking rifles as evil. they try to imply that we mere citizens are owning and shooting the same type of fully auto firearms as the military! we wish we had such luck! it's hogwash and propaganda, nothing more. two terms that i absolutely hate are assault rifle and sniper rifle! just because a rifle wears a scope doesn't make it a sniper rifle and any firearm used to assault another person, IMO is an assault weapon.

When you use the ACTUAL name for a semi-auto rifle, CIVILIAN RIFLE, it doesn't sound so bad, hence the birth of the name assault weapon.

Uhhhh.... IIRC, my military history, the first use of the term "assault rifle" was by the Soviet Red Army to describe the original, and " utterly miraculous" AK-47.

They desparetely needed to have a term to differentiate it from the German SturmGewehr (Storm rifle) so they could pretend that they actually had an original idea.
