I seem to recall, from many moons back, a simple, somewhat a rite of passage, semi-automatic, .22 caliber rifle with a barrel magazine that ran along the underneath of the barrel. No clip at all, but it held in excess of 10 rounds. Half again that many, iirc. How bizarre it might be to consider it an assault rifle, though I'll certainly concede in proper hands it could inflict mortal wounds on fowl, beast or man.
For those that dont know here is a pretty good peice about what is.....and isnt an assault rifle.
Its a good read and far more informative then anything you will see on Fox and Cnn.
The Truth About Assault Weapons
This is a civilian M14:
This is the improved version the military used to use (has been phased out):
The use the same ammo and have the same capacity, but the military one has been improved with lighter, plastic stocks and body that are more flexible in their arrangement for a better fit for the user, easier to handle pistol grip and lots of locations to mount accessories. They are both semi-auto and use the same ammunition, but one looks scarier than the other so it would be considered an assault rifle, while the other a hunting rifle. The differences have no effect on the lethality of the weapon, only the aesthetics and weight. The AR-15s that people are so afraid of are no different than the civilian M14 in operation, only in looks and a slightly larger magazine (30 instead of 20), but because they use plastic instead of wood, they seem scarier to people who don't know the difference.
I guess the point I'm trying to make is that the functions are the same, except one can be used for full auto firing and that is what makes it an assault rifle, not the grip, stock, or any other aesthetic item.
For greater mobility and to add accessories, both for how they aid with assaults (as opposed to hunting.) Sure, you can take an assault rifle hunting and make an assault with a hunting rifle but they have different design features for a reason.but the military one has been improved with lighter, plastic stocks and body that are more flexible in their arrangement for a better fit for the user, easier to handle pistol grip and lots of locations to mount accessories.
Another example of why this is difficult. I ran across one of the guys on MSNBC last night - Lawrence O'Donnell. He was talking about how he thought Tom Selleck should follow President Bush's lead and disassociate himself from the NRA.
I have no problem with him stating his opinions, but he was just a complete idiot when he started discussing other NRA board members. He discussed Brownell's and their current owner being a rich kid who inherited his father's company, ,etc., etc., etc., and how Brownell's is, in essence, some merchant of death. Blech.
I guess calm, normal folks from either side don't stand a chance...

Ooops... Maybe politicians should try reading bills first.
Politics | NY passes toughest gun laws in country | Queens Courier
Additions to be made to gun laws for law enforcement | 7online.comLess than a week after Governor Andrew Cuomo promised to make New York the leader in gun safety, the State Legislature voted in favor of the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement, or NY SAFE Act, that would effectively keep weapons away from the mentally ill and crack down on illegal guns.
The State Senate voted 43-18 in favor of a broad gun package around 11 p.m. on Monday, January 14; the Assembly voted 104-43 the following day, after hours of debate, to make the bill official.
Many opponents in the Assembly argued the bill was hastily thrown together in order for the state to be an example for the country. As a result, opponents said, registered gun owners would suffer.
Why does a retired law enforcement officer get exempted? What happens when the police become the criminals? I wonder if someone planning a mass shooting is concerned they might be violating the 7 round capacity law.NEW YORK (WABC) -- A troubling oversight has been found within New York State's sweeping new gun laws.
The ban on having high-capacity magazines, as it's written, would also include law enforcement officers.
Magazines with more than seven rounds will be illegal under the new law when that part takes effect in March.
Nearly every law enforcement agency in the state carries hand guns that have a 15 round capacity.
The Patrolman's Benevolent Association President released a statement saying, "The PBA is actively working to enact changes to this law that will provide the appropriate exemptions from the law for active and retired law enforcement officers."
State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he's going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban. In his words, "You can't give more ammo to the criminals"
Maybe because at some point they took an oath to uphold the Constitution and all local statutes in effect at the time of their hiring? Say! Maybe The Gideons could provide stacks of Bibles at Retail Outlets and Gun Shows for buyers to swear on . . . ?Why does a retired law enforcement officer get exempted?

Call me crazy if I don't think we can keep it together. We have crisis at every turn, from society to financial to religion to immigration. We haven't had a federal budget in 4 years, we are having to increase the debt limit every 16 months, the President's job council (which he was going to focus like a laser beam on) has never met - not even once, and the only way the federal government can keep from defaulting is to borrow money directly from the federal reserve who is creating it out of thin air (and then we call that growth). And what do we have to show for $16 trillion worth of debt (and the trillions of government spending that isn't debt) - nothing except a crumbling interstate system. Hell, we don't even have a single mile of dedicated high speed rail.
You know, I can see why the government doesn't want us having guns.
This will probably get some interesting responses but I was wondering....
Many, if not most, people on the right are against any form of gun control and many have stated they will rise up against their government if the government tries to enact gun control. I don't think anyone disagrees that guns do kill people, and quite a few at that. So even though it's a fact that guns kill people the same people are against abortions because they claim it kills people.
I'm against people killing people (unless it's in self-defense).
Guns do not kill people. People can use guns to kill people. I'm against people using guns to kill people (unless it's in self-defense). I'm not against guns or people owning guns.
Knives do not kill people. People can use knives to kill people. I'm against people using knives to kill people (unless it's in self-defense). I'm not against knives or people owning knives.
Hammers do not kill people. People can use hammers to kill people. I'm against people using hammers to kill people (unless it's in self-defense). I'm not against hammers or people owning hammers.
Hands, feet and fists by themselves do not kill people. People can use hands, feet or fists to kill people. I'm against people using hands, feet or fists to kill people (unless it's in self-defense). I'm certainly not against hands, feet and fists or people having hands, feet and fists.
Abortion is an intentional act of killing a living human being.
I'm against people using whatever means and/or tools to kill a living human being. I'm not against the tools themselves.
