Since there is no such thing as an “assault rifle”, you may as well ban unicorns, too.

Hmmmm ..?? There is NO SUCH THING as an “asault rifle”.

That classification does not exist. But, as usual, the left uses a premise that does not exist in order to force the right to do what they want.

This whole plan is a ruse to take away all weapons.

Please don’t fall for it .. and please call out the left for their non-existant type of weapon.

If I shoot someone with my bolt action, .22 single shot and kill them, is it an assault rifle?

There is an automatic weapon called the Sturmgewehr stG44.
Sturmgewehr means "assault rifle" in English. American liberals stole the name from Hitler who named the rifle that was a birthday surprise to him. Hitler had the weapon mass produced for his military.

Contrary to what nearly every “journalist” believes, the Bushmaster .223 is NOT a “MACHINE GUN”, IS NOT an “AUTOMATIC WEAPON” is NOT an “ASSAULT WEAPON” and is NOT a “MILITARY WEAPON”.

That’s how I like to see useless polls turn out.

It may not be scientific, but it gets the point across.

The only thing automatic about a rifle is that it ejects the spent cartridge and reloads a new one - but you still have to pull the trigger.

The only auto-shooter is the machine gun.

A little research helps.

"Assault rifles"? Why aid the gun grabbers?
I don't "assault" anybody with my semi-auto rifle.
No, semi-auto rifles nor pistols should be banned, except from clinically certified psychopaths.

There are such things as Assault Rifles. They are intermediate caliber, selective fire weapons. The military uses them and modern ones are NOT available for sail to the public (courtesy of the Gun Control Act of 1968, I think).
So, their sale is already unConstitutionally banned.

There is no need for MORE laws. You already can’t have medium calibre select-fire automatic rifles. There is no such thing as a legal, civilian, so-called ‘assault rifle’. Many are also trying to prohibit pistol-grips or any kind of vertical hand-holds for shotguns or rifles - it makes them ‘look’ too agressive - oh please! Again, there is NO NEED for more laws. This poll is already slanted, thus a waste of time.

In my state, the people who want to restrict ownership of firearms are the same people who gave mental patients drug prescriptions, proclaimed them cured, closed our mental institutions, and turned the crazies out onto the street.

A friend of mine who evaluated mental patients in one such institution passed two of his former patients on the street recently. He was shocked.

And we wring our hands over violence perpetrated by insane people?

Agree... You are totally correct!
What’s next? Banning those dangerous SUV’s?
A gun is an inanimate object, guns do not react on their own!
Assault rifle description as viewed by the left;
Mean looking!
Holds more than 10 rounds!
Looks like something used on battlefield (think musket)!
OOH that mean old flash suppressor!
Has a scope!
Has a pistol grip!
DOES NOT HAVE A SELECTOR SWITCH!

A bogus question, as true assault rifles are not sold to the”general public”, only to those who jump through the proper hoops and pay the required fees.

Correct me if I am wrong, but, the M-16’s used by the military are not fully automatic firearms.
The current M-16’s (look’s like an AR-15) have a selector switch, This selector switch has 3 positions, SAFE, SEMI (semi-automatic), BURST (3 rounds fired for each trigger pull).

Not enough information. Does the gun look mean and intimidating?

What color is the bolt? Do you have a mean look on your face while firing? Are there scopes and tracks on the gun to add accessories? Laser sights?
