    There is no such thing as an assault weapon,the term came from the liberal media for impact,just like high capacity magazine.Some designs allow more rounds to be stored than others.Some guns are for defensive purposes and some are for offensive purposes.I've never seen a gun assault anyone because it's an inanimate object and it can't,but a person can use it and many more things to commit an assault.Have to wow the sheeple or they won't watch or buy the news.

    I'd imagine that you'd object to the terms "hunting rifle" and "target rifle" as well?

    While the liberal media loves it I'm sure, I'm pretty sure the term came from the German StG 44 rifle, the first with that name, during the Second World War.

    Actually not at all,I just kept it simple but those are 2 legitamate catagories.The first guns made were for defensive and offensive purposes,hunting and target work came later as I recall.

    I didn't know about the StG,they were a little before my time and I never really studied military weaponry.The first time I ever heard of an assault weapon was long ago in the media and didn't know what they were talking about until they mentioned an AK.My father was a cop,my Grandfather was in WWII,and we all hunted,media was my exposure to the term.

    Gun, firearm, weapon, piece, whatever!

    Only thing that really matters, is that you give it the respect it deserves.
