Some people want their government to protect them from everything (including a 32oz. soda)
. There are those of us how want the ability to protect ourselves and our loved ones, not only from criminals but from our government as well. I don't want my government to be responsible for everything. I want them to get out of my way so I can live my life FREE.
What has honestly been bugging me lately is that the media and our own government don't seem to know what an assault rifle is...or they've somehow forgotten. They generalize absolutely every weapon that "looks" scary into the "ASSAULT WEAPON" category and it's annoying.
The literal definition of Assault Rifle is: A rapid-fire, magazine-fed automatic rifle designed for infantry use.
It got it's origin in 1942 with the MKb42 and was further developed by 1944 with the StG44, hell it's right in the name of the weapon and was clearly defined by Hitler himself; Sturmgewehr 44 which literally means Storm Rifle and was quoted as, "A rifle to storm the enemies position", it wasn't until later when the English coined the term Assault Rifle and the term has stuck. But the fear mongering retards of today has misconstrewed it's definition and purpose to mean every *censored* gun under the sun that scares the *censored* sheep. An AR-15 is not an Assault Weapon, a Glock 21 is not an Assault Weapon a kitchen knife is not a *censored* assault weapon. An M16 is an Assault weapon, an M249 SAW is NOT an assault weapon it is a SQUAD AUTOMATIC WEAPON or more commonly known as a LIGHT MACHINE GUN it's a support weapon. An HK416 is an assault rifle. But no, these god damned sheep seem to lump everything into the category of being an assault weapon whether it is or not.
No, a Bushmaster is a RIFLE nothing more. Sure, it's magazine fed but if you hold the trigger down it doesn't keep firing until the mag is empty. YOU HAVE TO KEEP PULLING THE TRIGGER. Yes, it's pretty efficient at killing but it is still not nor will it ever be an assault rifle or assault weapon. I'm so sick of these *censored*'s using the term ASSAULT RIFLE or ASSAULT WEAPON for weapons that aren't even classified as such.
No, I don't own any guns. I plan to soon though.
