ASSAULT WEAPONS have been banned in the US since 1974..
What the commie-gun-grabbers want you to believe is that semi-automatic rifle is an assault weapon... IT IS NOT!
You can revise definitions 'till hell freezes over but only the ignorant will buy it and every day there are fewer and fewer!
For the Commie-gun-grabbers it's an EVIL Assault Weapon if:
it has a pistol grip ... ooooogh SCARY!
it has a muzzle device... ... ooooogh SCARY! (if it's up your butt)
it has a folding stock... ... ooooogh SCARY! (if you catch your finger in it that is)
it is black in color... ... ooooogh SCARY!
The irrational fear of guns by liberals is simply an example of ignorance... or puking progressive commie-gun-grabber talking points.. take your pick of the two!
