    Is it an "assault" or a....

    "modern sporting rifle"? The ATFE says it's a modern sporting rifle.

    Even BATF Says is a Fake Term - AllOutdoor.comAllOutdoor.com

    Every gun can be said to be an instrument of "assault" or not. I consider the poor use of the term an Orwellian invention of liberals to attack gun ownership one kind of weapon at a time......

It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    Yup. New York is considering a ban on "assault" muzzle loading flint lock and percussion muskets and rifles.

    I heard the Nazis coined the term "sturmgewehr" not sure if true or not.

    The StG 44 (abbreviation of Sturmgewehr 44, "assault rifle 44") is a German selective-fire rifle developed during World War II. It is also known under the designations MP 43 and MP 44 (Maschinenpistole 43 and 44).

    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon! KEEP AMERICA GREAT, TRUMP 2020

    I propose the term "red henning" henceforth be used to refer to any stupid business decisions.

    Yup it's true. Hitler was against development of a new rifle so the German High Command got the rifle passed through Hitler by calling the new rifle a machine-pistol. Eventually Hitler was happy with the new rifle so the new rifle was designed StG 44.

    Sturmgewehr means "storm rifle".

    Every muzzle loading flint lock and percussion lock musket and rifle can be fired like that according to the dummies in Albany.

    You can bet that anything that comes from the lips of a politician is an obfuscation or an outright lie. The AR-15 family is certainly NOT an assault rifle, and anyone who choses to call it so, is simply unworthy of being listened to.
    The November 2018 elections represent a lynchpin event, regardless of the outcome.

    "Assault" weapons are FULLY Automatic.

    And, they are already ILLEGAL. (Except for those who want to spend a LOT of money, to be specially licensed. Someone, like an NBA player, who will then, promptly loose said ASSAULT weapon, by leaving it in his car, after showing it off in the hood....)

    Even then, the whole concept of FULLY Automatic ASSAULT weapons is somewhat over rated.

    Many troops, in the field, switch their Assault weapons down to SEMI Auto, both to improve accuracy, and, save ammo.

    You only need to "Spray" bullets in the air, in a few, specific situations.

    Likewise, if you are in an interior, crowded space, a club and a shot gun can do as much, or more, actual damage.

    Hell. If someone wanted to, he could turn his gas grill into one hell of a bomb.....
