    Hammers also, you know, serve another purpose. The primary intent of a hammer, or a rolling pin, is not to bludgeon someone to death. The primary intent of an "assault rifle" is to kill.

    EDIT: No, I am not arguing in favor of banning "assault rifles."

    Primary intent is irrelevant, we are talking about use in crime. Kobie, I own several rifles including a pair of AR's. They punch holes in paper, from point blank range to 1K+ meters.

    What is an "assault rifle", and to whom are you referring that uses them to kill?

    I put assault rifle in quotes because it's kind of a BS term anyway.

    To whom is it used to kill? Whomever it's pointed at when the trigger is pulled.

    Thank you; I learned how far distances are at a young age.

    At that range its hard to eyeball. There are rules you can use (height of your thumb, size of target through mil dots, etc) but range estimation alone is an art form. Then you have windage, altitude, temp, barometric pressure, and the coriolis effect coming into play. Its truly a cerebral hobby.

    No, its a military term for a military weapon. Its not, as implied, used by civilians to kill civilians.
