First off, the AR-15, Bushmaster and such are not Assault Weapons. They are Semi-Automatic variations of the US Military M-16 and M4 weapons carried by soldiers, sailors, marines and airman of the Armed Forces of the United States. Jane' book on Small Arms, defines an assault weapon as, a rifle capable of being fired on semi-automatic or full automatic using an intermediate cartridge. An intermediate cartridge for those who are not fully educated in firearms is a pistol cartridge, ie: .45ACP, 9mm etc. What the liberal Democrats call an assault weapon is very simply not an assault weapon, it is in fact a semi-automatic version of an a military issued firearm, and they are not assault weapons either because they do not use a pistol cartr
