They won’t like your politically incorrect, self-loading rifle either
A discussion of terminology: Assault rifle, modern sporting rifle, assault weapons. I don’t think it matters anymore what we call them. It used to. And, believe me, I’ve spent a lot a of time distinguishing between the made up term assault weapon and the misused term assault rifle for years. But I think we’re passed that. Doesn’t matter anymore. The AR-15 is now mainstream and the most popular semi-auto firearm out there. Sure, it’s technically wrong to call them assault rifles or assault weapons but I don’t think that distinction matters much in the political discourse. Unless we start calling them baby-killing, hippie-punching purveyors of death or something, it won’t make one wit of difference. The anti-gunners will lie. And they will still lose.
That we’re even having this debate means we’re winning.
