What an idiot. Why is it moral to kill 10 people with a normal magazine, but immoral to kill 20 or 30 with a larger magazine? Who are these low-information, low-intelligence morons who define these rifles as assault weapons? Baseball bats are also assault weapons. Kitchen knives are also assault weapons. Motor vehicles are also assault weapons. While in the military, I never once used a semi-automatic rifle to assault anything. The M-1 tank, and the M-2 Bradley are assault weapons, but I think they're already illegal to use in the US. The abortionists' suction machines are assualt weapons, too. They killed 2900 babies yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that. Pot-kettle, Nancy. What a doofus.

The term "assault weapons" has been thrown around a lot in the past few days and a lot in the past 20 years by Democrats. "Assault weapon" is term that was made up in the 1990s when the first Assault Weapons Ban was passed under President Clinton. There is no such thing as an assault weapon and when we ask for a definition of the term, we rarely get one.

Assault is a crime. Aggravated assault is a crime involving a weapon. Be it a bat, bottle or Bushmaster.

Yesterday on MSNBC Nancy Pelosi...
