    Define assault weapon

    That's it. Simple. This is a thread for both gun nuts and gun haters to posit and work put exactly what an assault weapon is.

    Full auto, semi auto, bolt action, flint lock? How many rounds per minute? Magazine capacity? Barrel length? Caliber?

    A weapon designed to mimic military weaponry, with no specific recreational features.

    Recreational features?

    Re: Define assault weapon

    a firearm that may use some surplus military parts and may look like a true assault rifle, but since it lacks the feature necessary to make it useful for military assault, it cannot properly be labeled with term. It generally means whatever some scumbag gun banner wants it to mean.

    All guns mimic military weapons, along with most new technology. Gotta be more specific? Firing rate? Caliber?

    Do you consider pistols in this as well? Since pistols are used in the military as well, and you can buy the same ones with literally no modifications unlike the AR-15.

    There are assault rifles.

    Then there are "assault weapons" which is a artificial political catch all for 'ugly guns'.

    Weapons designed to kill multiple people in a short period of time such as weapons issued to the military. There is no reason for these type of weapons to be in the hands of private citizens.

    It's that simple.
