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

Here in moronic California an “assault rifle” is categorized by what “it looks like.”
Since ordinary citizens don’t get to own fully automatic rifles, the morons here have legislated as “assault rifles,” anything that looks similar to rifles carried by the military. You can own an AR-15 provided that the mag is attached and it doesn’t have a “pistol grip” as I recall, but functionally, it’s no different than a semi auto “sporting version” of the same gun. As I said, they are morons who are simply looking for any artifice to deny citizens their right to a weapon of their choice.

If you do it with a CO2 pellet gun, is that an assault rifle?

If you put a ballbearing in their head with a Wrist Rocket, is it an assault weapon?

David killed Goliath with a rock and a sling.

You could kill somebody with a deer antler tine or a broken bottle.

Everything on earth can be used to “assault” somebody else.

Since the poll appears to be talking about semi-automatic military pattern (read black ugly, good magazine capacity)rifles will freep no to the poll.

Of course, the actual assault rifle is the full auto variant provided to the military and law enforcement only and if available through a Class 3 dealer, is among the most heavily regulated, taxed, and EXPENSIVE (nothing new since the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 (also known as “McClure-Volkmer”)

Proceeding to poll

Sturmgewehr means "assault rifle" in English.

Actually,"Sturm" means "storm" in English and "gewhr" means "gun or rifle". So "storm rifle" is a more literal translation. Don't trust translation engines on the web or anything coming from the media :) I ran it through a online translation engine and it came back with assault rifle. My guess is there is some liberal mapping the translations.

I am sure that Strum, Ruger & Company doesn't want to be translated to Assault, Ruger & Company.

Isn’t an assault rifle a type of rifle that has that thingy just before the trigger that you wrap your hand around and that has that other thingy at the end of the barrel that hides the flash from the shooter?

Of course, a folding or adjustable stock will make it even deadlier.

FYI:  ALERT!

Federal agents, meanwhile, continue to investigate the recent activities of the shooter,
Adam Lanza, who took his own life as police moved in on a classroom where he was killing children using a high-powered rifle.

Has more information come to light, that justifies this comment?

The two pistols were found inside the school and
a .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle was found in the back of his mother's car in the parking lot.

The left has been abusing the terminology for almost 25 years now.

The fact is, an assault rifle (sturmgewehr) is a rifle that has select-fire capabilites, like an M16 (full auto or semi-auto, based on a selector switch position). These are heavily restricted for civilian use, as they are NFA items.

An “assault weapon” is a scary, black thing that makes liberals wet their pants in abject fear, but is impossible for them to clearly define.

Agree: There is such a thing as an assault rifle -- the phrase describes a select-fire (semi-auto/full-auto) rifle. See post(s) above.

The made up phrase "assault weapon" describes anything that makes libtards wet their panties and that they think they can ban because the weapon looks scarey. It is a deliberate deception made up in the 1990s. The idea is older:

  "The semi-automatic weapons' menacing looks, coupled with the public's
   confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic
   assault weapons anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to
   be a machine gun can only increase that chance of public support for
   restrictions on these weapons."
                       --  Josh Sugarman, 1988, Violence Policy Center.

Carolyn McCarthy doesn't know what her own stupid gun ban really bans! It is the shoulder thing that goes up.

Poll: Is the NRA finally going to abandon the myth of a pro-gun Democrat?

Yup. They look pretty stupid with their support of Harry Reid about now. What are the odds that Harry won't bring up a new AWBan? Hmmmm. I'd say about ZERO!

So .. it’s still not an “assault rifle”. It’s just a weapon which reloads the ammo - and he still has to pull the trigger each time.

You made my point.
