Sorry man, but there is such a thing as an assault rifle. It's a distinct class of firearm that fires an intermediate round cartridge, generally bottle necked such as the 7.62 X 39 mm or the 5.56 mm NATO, from a magazine, and capable of semi, burst, and/or automatic fires. The name was coined by Adolph Hitler for various weapons that fell in the "Sturmgewehr" category. Sturmgewehr translates to storm rifle, with storm being assault, like storming a castle. Assault rifles include the AK-47, M16A2, and many other rifles. They are distinct from Main Battle Rifles which are similar but use full rifle cartridges like 7.62 mm NATO, Submachine guns which fire pistol caliber rounds, and Personal Defense Weapons which fire often unique, small bottle nosed rounds.

The 'assault weapon' category is the one that's a bogus creation of the left...I figure this is what you meant to type.

A.H., which stands for Adoph Hitler and something else, also promoted the brilliant Autobahn, which inspired our Interstate Highway system, the V.W. beetle, the assault rifle, and other things. If he'd not been so caught up in conquest and racism and not been an evil person, imagine what good things someone with that charisma and drive could do. Tragic, horrific waste of talent.


But that's all a side note.

The Gulags, the Death Camps, the Killing Fields and a host of other horrors can't happen if there's an armed populance!
