    They're .22s. Dressed up and fancy....but .22s none the less.

    Try to ban .22 rifles, and, honestly, their WILL be some problems, like some avid folks say. The .22 rifle is the single most common rifle in the US, and possibly the world.

    Re: Are These "Assault Rifles" ?

    One must first define "assault rifle", since you have not done so, thus my answer is "other".

    Colt .22:

    Are These &quot;Assault Rifles&quot; ?-22-rifle-jpg

    Marlin .22:

    Are These &quot;Assault Rifles&quot; ?-marlin-rifle-jpg

    Ruger .22:

    Are These &quot;Assault Rifles&quot; ?-ruger-rifle-jpg

    Most "reasonable liberals" would likely say only the Colt is "scary looking" enough to warrant the immediate execution of the "terrorist" that would carry such a rifle on our streets, the others would simply warrant immediate arrest and confiscation of the "military style" (black) rifle.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    Oh, I don't know. I've "assaulted" many a squirrel with those, in my day. To a squirrels, those may as well be a 50 cal sniper rifle.

    Now if you are trying to argue which one is an "assault weapon".Then because the top one pictured has a telescoping stock,pistol grip,bayonet lug and what looks like a flash suppressor(it could be a muzzle brake/compensator instead of a flash suppressor) then that would be an assault weapon as defined by the brady bill assault weapons ban. Now if it only had one of those features instead of two(assuming the Ruger .22 is a semi-automatic firearm with a detachable magazine,I am not that familiar with firearms) or more of those features then it would not be an "assault weapon". If those other two rifles had two or more of those features then those would be defined as assault weapons under the brady bill assault weapons ban.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    None of them are assault rifles.

    This should be there.
