2 Sheriffs shot in LA - "Assault weapon"?Submitted by bcfast on Thu, 08/16/2012 - 13:11
Notice the use of term "assault weapon" in this article...you military folks correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't an assault weapon one that has a switch on it for firing fully-automatic? The AR or AK that we can buy in any gunstore...or WalMart for that matter...is a semi-automatic sport rifle, nothing more.
Sad that the officers were murdered, but the media is spinning this into a propaganda piece. I guess the lesson here is, get'm while you can!
