    where are you, now that I've taken away your only opportunity to spin this into a silly argument about words like manufacture and cosmetic, you seem to have backed out of the argument is this to me that you forfeit?

    If the "cosmetics" are not the issue, then why do the rightwingers repeatedly make dishonest claims about cosmetics?

    It is sangha attempting to "spin" which means being intellectually dishonest. He pulled the same crap with me and the word manufacture. He insinuated that to change parts on a gun was manufacturing, I beat him with logic, saying that changing parts in my vehicle makes me an auto manufacturer then. To that...silence.

    All he has as a foot hold is the dead horse he delights in kicking, this meaning of the word cosmetic. Even though numerous times it has been stated that he was correct that cosmetic may not be the right term. He goes back to his dead horse and commenced to kicking it again

    Yes, you were right.

    Now that your ego has been stroked and your deviation arrested. Do you have anything to say about this topic?

    Or just more word games?

    Because most people who have these kind of guns add those things on just for appearances.

    Because the true functions of these accessories are being labeled "dangerous," when no subsequent increase in danger or lethality is involved. The functions as described by the anti-gun faction are, in fact, cosmetic, as they only "look" more dangerous.

    You failed to answer my question - why should these features such as pistol grips, collapsible stocks, and barrel shrouds be banned?

    According to the FBI (I can provide a copy of the email from them stating the following if you wish) the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act is what they use to determine what constitutes an assault weapon. Assault weapons consist of rifles, pistols and shotguns with a certain number of features to them as well as some specifically named weapons.

    So if you say assault weapons then you are talking about all three groups. If you want to discuss only assault rifles, then you need to say assault rifles.
