What's in a name? Assault Weapon - Urban dictionary gets it right! So do Israelis.

I guess we have this crafty guy Josh Sugermann (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josh_Sugarmann) to credit with coining the initial demonizing term, "assault weapon" to serve his task. Sadly, we are still repeating (no pun intended) it automatically...

Here the urban dictionary gets it right:

More on Sugarmann:

"A gun-control movement worthy of the name would insist that President Clinton move beyond his proposals for controls ... and immediately call on Congress to pass far-reaching industry regulation like the Firearms Safety and Consumer Protection Act ... [which] would give the Treasury Department health and safety authority over the gun industry, and any rational regulator with that authority would ban handguns."
- Josh Sugarmann (executive director of the Violence Policy Center)

Here is their extreme but effective solution to school security;

Well, I guess if he wins his argument Obama can take our assault weapons from us and arm the Muslims Brotherhood in Syria with them.

Oh wait, wait, wait that would save too much money. Better to take ours, destroy them, pay the Military Industrial Complex to make new ones then finance the purchase through the Federal reserve banks and tax us for the whole deal... Happy Christmas everyone!

"Weapon of Mass Destruction"

Does not include any gun, missile, or any of the things the "journalists" have applied it to, if I recall. I think it only applied to nuclear bomb attacks or bigger events.

They mis-use it all the time.
