    Would you care if you owned such a firearm and there was a movement to use the force of government to take it away from you?

    It's something the bad guys use. Good guys use pistols.

    IMO an assault rifle is any rifle you assault somebody with.

    Emotion, hyperbole, thinly veiled insults. Lacking in substance and fact, lacking logic and reason. Not much of an addition to the discussion.

    Many hunters carry a handgun and may shoot at game as a novelty, but few actually hunt with a handgun.

    Re: What is an assault rifle?

    An assault rifle is almost certainly a high capacity rifle with different firing modes.

    The political definition of "assault rifle" is "scary looking gun" or "something that looks like it was in a video game."

    Of course, these "scary" rifles like the AR-15 used in the recent shooting are completely unnecessary to shoot large groups of people and the notion of banning them because something bad happened is absurd.

    Actually, according to NBC, 9mm pistols were used in the shooting. An AR-15 was only found on the scene.

    So, even assuming a hyper-charged emotional response to this made sense, which it doesn't, why the hell go for an "assault rifle" (scary looking guns) ban?
    One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.

    I voted I don't know because it is an invented, fallicous, and arbitrary term.

    The **** they're not. When large game hunting it's advised to have a large bore sidearm in case your main weapon jams, this includes bear, wild boar, and other animals known to charge. In fact sidearms are not a bad idea when tracking down rabid smaller game for the same reason.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Actually, there is an accepted definition of assault rifle, typically they are select fire carbines and other medium barreled select fire intermediate cartridge rifles. Assault weapon, is the created term by the anti gun movement and is a false term with no actual technical meaning.
