What Constitutes an ‘Assault’ Rifle? Merriam-Webster Dictonary defines “assault rifle” as “any of various automatic or semiautomatic rifles with large capacity magazines designed for military use.” The keywords here are “designed for military use.” If that definition doesn’t quite cut it for you, here’s how David Kopel (via the Washington Examiner) describes it in an article in the “Journal of Contemporary Law” based on a definition from the Department of Defense (emphasis added): As the United States Defense Department’s Defense Intelligence Agency book Small Arms Identification and Operation Guide explains, “assault rifles” are “short, compact, selective-fire weapons that fire a cartridge intermediate in power between submachine gun

Nice call Jarhead! The discouraging part of all the kerfuffle is that we are NOT dealing with Reasonable People....but fools, sycophants, the lowest of the low , and the most abased in morals, character, honesty or integrity.....with FUBAR-AK at the head of the pack....Leading by example so that the rest of the lemmings will know where the herd is headed. Unfortunately, they appear determined to take ALL OF US over the cliff to drown in the Sea...which said sea will be the overwhelming FLOOD of new and onerous and ILLEGAL Laws...which all the lemmings will Support!

As most of you know, Vice President Joe Biden has been appointed by Obama to make certain that another Sandy Hook never goes down on American soil. Being an American who digs freedom, I’m not getting the warm and fuzzies about this legislative venture. A myopic cyclops staring into the sun can see where this duo is heading.

And as most of you can guess, Biden and Obama are talking about levying an executive order on our populace that would ban certain semi-automatic rifles and high capacity pistol and rifle magazines. It’s a similar policy to the Clinton Assault...
