First of all, assault weapons is a made-up political term used for rifles that have "scary" features such as a pistol grip or bayonet. An assault rifle is a rifle that fires in an automatic or burst fire mode. Assault rifles have been banned in nearly every case for some time now.

This IS an assault rifle:

Assault Weapons ban is a ban on guns mostly on cosmetic features, not on their danger. The media has given the impression that scary-looking rifles are assault weapons when they have frivolous features.

All terms are "made-up" buddy. Humans invented language.

Sometimes I have difficulty understanding exactly what people mean when they make unspecific statements using words or phrases in unconventional ways like that. Instead of trying to belittle me for that, why don't you explain what you really meant when you said it is a made up term?

Because maybe if you had finished the rest of the sentence, you know then you'd see:

First of all, assault weapons is a made-up political term used for rifles that have "scary" features such as a pistol grip or bayonet.

That wasn't so hard, was it?

So it's like any other word, term, or phrase in that it was invented by humans in order to describe something?

So out of the 2 which has a higher ammo capacity, better range, and a higher rate of fire?

Actually never mind I just realized you're the kid who used a clip from Boardwalk Empire then said it wasn't Boardwalk Empire. Surprised you didn't have a picture of a steam iron.
