    I want all assault rifle owners to turn them in, possession of them made a felony

    I won't be happy with just an assault weapons ban, I want all the people who currently own them to give them up. You can have all the damn squirrel guns, shotguns, hunting rifles, revolvers, pistols or pop guns you want, but no civilian needs a fucking assault weapon.

    And when the ATF shows up for you to voluntarily give up your military assault weapons, you'd better damn well not pull a david koresh branch davidian stunt, because our constitutionally guaranteed, well regulated militia, the U.S. Army has more guns than anyone else.

    You can keep your Bibles, and you can keep your religion, and you can keep your pornography and you can keep your paranoia and your racism and your hatred too, but you have to give up your precious, masturbatory assault machine guns.

    It should be the law of the land. All civilians turn in your assault rifles, voluntarily, patriotically, peacefully, you don't need them, our soldiers do.
    Sorry DUmmie, you can't have mine.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I love it when a DUmbass thinks he's so smart but proves in his post just how much of an idiot they truly are....

    Here is the definition of an Assault Rifle....or if you're Nads, Assault Riffle:

    Definition

    The term assault rifle is a translation of the German word Sturmgewehr (literally "storm rifle", as in "to storm a position"). The name was coined by Adolf Hitler as a new name for the Maschinenpistole 43, subsequently known as the Sturmgewehr 44, the firearm generally considered the first assault rifle that served to popularise the concept and form the basis for today's modern assault rifles.

    The translation assault rifle gradually became the common term for similar firearms sharing the same technical definition as the StG 44. In a strict definition, a firearm must have at least the following characteristics to be considered an assault rifle:
    It must be an individual weapon with provision to fire from the shoulder (i.e. a buttstock);
    It must be capable of selective fire;
    It must have an intermediate-power cartridge: more power than a pistol but less than a standard rifle or battle rifle;
    Its ammunition must be supplied from a detachable magazine rather than a feed-belt.
    And it should at least have a firing range of 300 meters (1000 feet)

    Rifles that meet most of these criteria, but not all, are technically not assault rifles despite frequently being considered as such. For example, semi-automatic-only rifles like the AR-15 (which the M16 rifle is based on) that share designs with assault rifles are not assault rifles, as they are not capable of switching to automatic fire and thus are not selective fire capable. Belt-fed weapons or rifles with fixed magazines are likewise not assault rifles because they do not have detachable box magazines.

    The term "assault rifle" is often more loosely used for commercial or political reasons to include other types of arms, particularly arms that fall under a strict definition of the battle rifle, or semi-automatic variant of military rifles such as AR-15s.

    The US Army defines assault rifles as "short, compact, selective-fire weapons that fire a cartridge intermediate in power between submachinegun and rifle cartridges."

    So, Assault Rifles are already illegal for law abiding citizenry to own unless you have special permits to own them or are a member of the US Military. And the people who do have those permits are the people I would trust with them.

    And one DUmbass gets it....

    13. Can't always get what you want.

    I think a noted British philosopher once said something along those lines...

    As for the rest of your screed, virtually nothing in it bears the slightest resemblance to reality. Hard to know where to start.

    First, the ATF is not the military. They have nothing to do with each other, and the latter is forbidden by law to act in matters of domestic law enforcement. That law exists for a damn good reason.

    Next, the military isn't the "well regulated militia." One can make the case that the National Guard is part of the militia, but the regular military is just that: the regular military. They're not the same thing.

    As for "my" Bibles, religion, pornography, paranoia, and hated, I have none of the above. I'm an atheist, a rather hard-core liberal (a confirmed socialist), a feminist, and my mental health's just fine, thanks. Keep your inane, borderline-slanderous assumptions to yourself, pal.

    Loved this gem: "assault machine guns." You really don't know the first thing about firearms, do you?

    Oh, and one last thing: "All civilians turn in your assault rifles, voluntarily, patriotically, peacefully, you don't need them, our soldiers do." No, not really. They have plenty of their own. Civilians don't have "assault rifles," save in very, very small numbers. They have millions of semi-automatic rifles and carbines that look like actual assault rifles, but don't actually operate like assault rifles (which can fire in fully-automatic mode, like a machine gun; the civilian ones can't).

    Still, as uninformed-but-hysterical rants go, that one was top notch. I'm sure you feel much better now...

    An assault weapon would be anything you use to assault someone, If I stuffed foam rubber in Nova's mouth and suffocated him it would be an assault weapon.

    What is the definition of an "assault rifle"?

    What does it go by? Looks? Performance? Caliber? Range?


    Other than looks and size there is no difference between a 10/22 and a SKS, they both function the same way...

    Idiots don't know that a bolt action 30.06 is way more powerful than their vaunted foe, the "ASSAULT RIFLE"...

    I want a cannon like the militia guys had in 1776. And some cannonballs. And a place to fire it off.
    Be Not Afraid.

    There sure are a lot of people out there (including media hacks and politicians) who don't know the difference between automatic and semi-automatic firearms. It's comical to hear folks with such strong opinions on things they don't even understand.

    They've never owned a gun, nor have they ever fired one. They're afraid of guns.
