Please stop calling them assault weapons..

That's what they ( Libs) call them...they are using the media to brain wash non gun citizens with this term

Hey they even have us calling them Assault weapons

My rifles have never assaulted anyone.

They are just semi- auto rifles...Simple.

Same with high capacity magazines.....Mine are all standard capacity...

Not to be an A$$ (sometimes I cannot help myself) but a liberal friend of mine, who does not know of my strong Second Amendment views, posted a link and picture on Facebook pointing out that it was the firearms industry that came up with the offending terms in the early 1980's. The picture was of an issue of Guns & Ammo from way back in 1982 (ISBN 0-8227-2234-8). An issue I just happen to have sitting in front of me right now as I write this. It it titled "Assault Rifles: The New Breed of Sporting Arm" by Art Blatt, Field Editor, Guns & Ammo. It covers "Complete Data on Semi-Autos from: Armalte, Baretta, Colt, FN, H&K, Leader, ROger, SIG, Springfield, Valmet".

I also have "The Complete Book of Assault Rifles", published in 1983 by Harris Publications and "Special Weapons" also published in 1983 by Harris Publications. I bought the former due to a technical article on the .223 round and the latter because of review of the Colt AR-15.

So yes, I resent the term Assault Weapons but if we are going to be honest, the term was lifted from early 1980's literature by the anti's.

Absolutely - same opinion here. I make a point (as often as I remember) of writing "assault weapons [sic]".

It is important.

Thoughts?

DOD definition for assault rifle is "select fire" rifle. Therefore a semi auto rifle is not an assault rifle.

However, bills usually define items under the verbiage "for the purpose of this bill".....


We got lucky in Illinois for now. I was pulling for you and still am hopeful this law gets trashed.

big time

a lot of the pols are calling ar's this. and follow it with "why does da civilian need dem ......."




ive, on average, and commonly refer to EBRs as "rifles" or "sticks"

4 years in the Marines,, never once have I heard a Marine refer to an AR/M16 as an "assault weapon" or "assault rifle"

imagine a Marine walking around asking "hey billy, you seen where I set down my assault weapon? "

its more liek "hey you fucking piece of fucking shit you fucking fuck, where is my rifle, i know you have it, give it up before i dogpound your stupid fucking face"



ITS A FUCKING RIFLE.
