    It's kind of like driving a sporty sedan. It looks like it will go faster and perform like a race car, but it's just.... a family car.

    Military firearm that is chambered for ammunition of reduced size or propellant charge and has the capacity to switch between semiautomatic and fully automatic fire. Light and portable, yet able to deliver a high volume of fire with reasonable accuracy at modern combat ranges of 1,000 – 1,600 ft (300 – 500 m), assault rifles have become the standard infantry weapon of modern armies. Their ease of handling makes them ideal for mobile assault troops crowded into personnel carriers or helicopters, as well as for guerrilla fighters engaged in jungle or urban warfare. Widely used assault rifles are the U.S. M16, the Soviet Kalashnikov (the AK-47 and modernized versions), the Belgian FAL and FNC, and the German G3.


    Cause that's the non-liberalized definition. I'm surprised they used High capacity magazines and not high capacity banana clips.

    Oh and my opinion an automatic Corvette is, well not something I would be bragging about.

    Assault weapon
    Top

    Home > Library > Miscellaneous > Wikipedia

    Assault weapon is a non-technical term referring to any of a broad category of firearms with certain features, including some semiautomatic rifles, some pistols, and some shotguns. There are a variety of different statutory definitions of assault weapons in local, state, and federal laws in the United States that define them by a set of characteristics they possess. Using lists of physical features or specific firearms in defining assault weapons in the U.S. was first codified by the language of the now-expired 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban.[1]

    Very generally speaking, a semi-automatic firearm is defined by these laws as an assault weapon if it has both a detachable magazine and a pistol grip, sometimes in conjunction with other features such as a folding stock or a flash suppressor. Assault weapons are often similar in appearance to military firearms, but are capable of firing only once each time the trigger is pulled.

    Whether or not assault weapons should be legally restricted more than other firearms, how they should be defined, and even whether or not the term assault weapon should be used at all, are questions subject to considerable debate as part of the arguments of gun politics in the United States.

    If its only for target practice and hunting, why are 10 rounds in a mag not enough? Give me a good example of a hunter needing to spray 11 rounds at a target before it goes down. What are they hunting kodiak bears with spit wad's? Is there not ample enough time to reload a new magazine when shooting target practice?

    Simply put, a pause between reloading a 10 round magazine, could be enough for a state trooper to take a shot and bring down a suspect, or for someone to get out of the building, or for someone to notice the amount of ammo/ weapons someone is carrying into a building. This seems to be common sense, but some how those NRA loons think its infringing on their constitutional rights.

    I did think this paragraph in the article was of interest: Law enforcement responded immediately when Ryan was threatened back home in Wisconsin. The lawmaker was out walking with his daughter when a black sport utility vehicle pulled up alongside them. “You’ve got a bull’s-eye on your head,” the driver allegedly told Ryan. “You’re gonna die, motherf---er.” Local police records show that the driver believed Ryan had “blood on his hands” for supporting the war in Iraq. He told police that he was on disability for arthritis and that he felt “frustrated” that he could no longer support his family, the documents show. “Congressman Ryan told me that although they receive threats quite often, this one was more specific and directed,” a Janesville police detective wrote in his report.

    I'll go out on a limb and say the guy that threatened Ryan (R) was some crazy liberal. Does he get qualified as an "angry white guy" or is he just a good citizen that had reasons to be upset? LOL In a related article, it discussed how Jean Schmidt (R) from Ohio received a "profanity laced voice mail in which the caller wished that the congresswoman had broken her back in a recent accident." So, while the threats and crude comments towards Republicans aren't reported as vigorously as those against democrats, they clearly are occurring. But I'm sure you guys will defend these as deserving or have some other way to make it seem not as bad.

    Just curious davidra, are there also democrat "morons with a bunch of guns", or is that exclusive to the t-party folks?

    relevance to the definition of an Assault Rifle?

    Never mind your the one who referenced "banana clip" right.

    I am sure there are. I guess they just happen to be together enough to not threaten to kill politicians because of their votes for Obama. That would be my guess. Certainly, the t-baggers are out in front based on that article.

    "Based on that article"? Which article? Maybe I skimmed it too quickly, but couldn't find any mention of the t-party folks. Can you look back and find that for me? I must have missed it because surely you wouldn't put a label on a group because of your own biased opinion, would you? Also, you do know that Ryan and Cornyn mentioned in the article as having received threats, are Republicans, right? Mabye it was some of those democrat morons with a bunch of guns that threatened them, huh? Maybe?

    wiki is a Community built, meaning you or I could type what we wanted in there. That said type in assault rifle and educate yourself. Infantry rifles have a long history and to compare a civilian version to a military version is silly. Do they look the same? Yea, but I don't see any countries military's issuing them.

    The issue is that 'assault rifle' does not mean the same thing to everyone. The average SKS sold in the states is not really much different from a hunting rifle. Most people see something with a synthetic stock with a pistol grip and think machine gun or assault rifle, when it's not accurate. That being said, under current US code, all citizens that meet the defined criteria are actually part of the militia. You're really supposed to be prepared to be called up if necessary.
    And I'm for gun ownership and the right to carry (civil liberties) but would feel safer if I knew gun owners left them at home.
    What if guns were treated exactly like cars, and you were required to have a certain amount of training, but then were allowed unfettered access so long as you did not commit a crime with it? There could even be classes of licenses or endorsements for things beyond the basics.
    My police sergeant buddy tells me gun owners are more likely to be shot by their own weapon then by the weapon of a criminal. Not sure if that's true or just a catchy thing to say?
    Statistically, it's accurate from what I recall seeing in the past, but I don't think the statistics excluded accidents, suicides, or domestic violence, so I'm not sure if it makes the point some seem to imply.

    I certainly fall into the category of people who discuss guns without the slightest hint of education beyond what I see on tv. And if i get called up, prepare to be disappointed. I can yell pretty loud and run away, thats about it

    A close friend of mine has a CHL. He is extremely responsible and the type of person that, while armed, makes me feel safer. I'm not sure if he is representative of the majority of gun owners. I'm a skeptic so my guess is he would be in the minority regarding his level of commitment to responsibility and common sense.

    Same sergeant told me people are more likely to be killed by someone we know vs. a stranger and be in an auto accident within 1 mile of our house versus out on the highway. He has a largish head so he must be smart, right?

    The difference between a ar15 and an M4? Just the semi auto vs full auto and select fire plus some looks and cosmetics plus length. It's the same type receiver and basic function. You can say that they are completely different, because the NRA tells you to do so, but that does not make it true.

    I'm not so convinced. There are more guns than people in the US according to some statistics that I've seen. If things were unsafe simply because of that, we'd all be dead by now.

    Well, he at least can remember a few stats. But are you never going to go within a mile of your home to avoid being in an accident?

    Wouldn't a better analogy be comparing a late 80s/early 90s 4-cylinder Mustang to a GT? I mean, sure, you can slap a turbo on the 4 banger and make it into a faster car, but it's still only a shadow of the V8.
