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.

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.

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.

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.
