    Otherwise assault weapons have an explicit purpose and that is to kill people in war. Shotguns have their purpose too. And that is to kill game pretty much. Cann the two be interchanged sure. But one is to feed humans the other is to kill them.

    so why did guys on point carry shotguns in the Nam/ why do prison guards and US Marshalls guarding prisoners carry shotguns. why does a guy like me who was a world class shooter and who had dozens of guns to choose from keep a shotgun as my primary home defense weapon. And why do thousands of people shoot at the National championships at Camp Perry each year with real or semi auto "assault rifles"

    And lets look at your pathetic argument. You somehow think its wrong to have a weapon for killing and you limit that to war. That is just plain ignorant. I have guns for all sorts of reasons and one of the most important is to protect my family from criminals and my animals from coyotes. and in both cases, military styled rifles are ideal tools in SOME situations

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    YOu are starting to engage in idiocy in your posts

    you obviously have no clue what the term "assault weapon" encompasses

    under the Kalifornia code the pistols used in the most popular olympic pistol competition are called "assault weapons"

    Shotguns were originally designed as weapons. Most of the guns called "assault weapons" by ignorant people are not military issue or bought for "killing"

    did you know that the rifle Sgt carlos Hathcock won the national target championship with was also the same rifle he killed dozens of NVA and Chinese with? now was that winchester heavy barrel model 70 with that 8 power Unertl target scope designed to "kill people" or shoot paper targets?

    in reality a firearm is designed to shoot bullets. some are designed to shoot more accurately than others
    some are designed to function in adverse conditions more than others

    remember what wyatt Earp once said-speed is nice, accuracy is fatal

    in some cases a very accurate weapon is "more lethal"
    in other cases-a rapid firing weapon is more lethal

    They aren't very accurate either. They are more of an area fire weapon. Also, when I am trying to pick off individuals from the grassy knoll, it leaves that bothersome smoke trail behind it that just screams "Arrest me!". Yeah, rocket launchers are no good.

    tuned M16s are very accurate. A lady i used to shoot with (she was on the 96 Olympic team) was on the USAMU
    and her husband was the armorer for them. He would make match rifles out of the A2s. these overtook the M14 rifles as the preferred tools for the USAMU team at the national service rifle championships where they shoot out to 600 yards
