Like Rush said today - what is the definition of an assault rifle? Aren’t all guns ‘assault’ weapons???

When I was in the Army National Guard we called the M16, including the earlier fully automatic models “assault rifles” rather than “machine guns”. We called the M60 a “light machine gun” (although when I carried the M60 around I did not consider it all that “light”...it is just much ligher than medium or heavy machine guns, which are too large for a person to hold and fire, and are instead always mounted on a vehicle or stand). Calling an M16 a “machine gun” or even a “gun” would get one ridiculed by a Drill Sergent.

I did 2 tours in Iraq, and when I was there we allowed every Iraq to have an ak-47 and a clip of ammo. Now I remember going on patrol and having Iraqis tell me that when Saddam was in power it was not uncommon to go to school and see the teacher with an Ak slung around his arm or a student with an Ak plopped right down on his desk with his books.Point being first off all, an armed populace did not deter tryanny as witnessed by the abuses of Saddam and secondly, nobody was going up to the school and shooting it up.Crazy people by definition have to live on the fringe, but if everybody is armed then all of a sudden the guy with the gun doesn't feel too fringy

Recently an idiot liberal was fuming at the mouth at me insisting that AR stood for “Assault Rifle”. I just shook my head.

Need to round up and prosecute all of the doctors who have seen and treated these “disturbed” persons without notifying the police. Fortunately, most of the insane persons wandering loose are harmless, but most would benefit from compassionate institutionalization.

(Hell...even Rush got it wrong today..automatic rifles are NOT BANNED...just heavily regulated....same way slingshots will be someday....*S*))

With these kind of AFT leaders, you now know why our kids can’t read, write, speak, or think clearly.

Guns don’t kill, bad teachers union leaders do.
