Eight minutes of your time that will be well spent. This is a well researched, and well presented video on the ‘assault rifle’ terminology, media use, and anti-gunner’s use.
What is truly frustrating to me is the ‘purposeful’ misuse of the term to, yet again, advance a false agenda of gun control. When you couple this with the demonization of the NRA and its members, it is, IMHO, a concerted effort to shut us up/criminalize us in the minds of the general public.
YMMV, IANAL, and I didn’t stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night either…
