The training required to infiltrate and stalk a target aren't something available to a civilian,it's because we kill not wound.
A .22 requires a surgically placed shot that a larger caliber would work for as a more traumatizing attack to a greater mass target.
The .22 is GOOD for assassins,not gun fights.


Christ you guys are dense.

I'm actually on your side here and you are proving the points I made.

Why is this so hard to understand?

Because we are VERY clearly saying YOU CAN'T ASSAULT with it so it is NOT an assault rifle at all.

Right, that is why home invasions by people who have never been in the military never happen.

So, I'm thinkings, we, as a "civilization" , should keep idiots away from steak knives, hammers and nail guns... Lord knows, them liberals don't understand the potential "power" they hold in their hands. Them half head, 16 penny nails, could be used to undo "civilization" as we know it. ... I'd personally begin with a butter knife ban. .. Heck, what do I know?

What do you mean by assault?

Legally, you can assault someone with your fists.

They happen, as any half assed civilian attacks happen ,you are just impressed by amateurs and define your world in a different way than a predator does.

Who said I was impressed?

You don't even impress me and you talk the talk more than anyone here.

Maybe people have to agree on the meaning of the terms before discussing:

Assault:

1. a. A violent physical attack, as with blows.
b. A strong or cutting verbal attack.

2.
a. A military attack, such as one launched against a fortified area or place.
b. The concluding stage of an attack in which close combat occurs with the enemy.

I'm guessing introvert went with 1 and you and cav can't help but think in terms of number 2.

What? I remember butt strokes very clearly during basic training. Also Shooting someone is assault. How do you even come up with this

Ahh because youre big and bad? Half assed huh? I would say 50 dead and 500 plus wounded is pretty good for one or two people in vegas who werent military.

Youre not a predator, youre a guy on the internet pretending to be something hes not to compensate for his own weak ego. See, I can insult people too

Whatever introvert is thinking, if he does think at all, He has zero idea about what he is saying. But, his insecurity prevents him from recognizing his issue.

I see him trying to explain it to you and you just being obtuse.

I even posted the two ways the term could be used and you still want to blame introvert as if they were the one that defined what assault means.

Says the guy throwing insults at other posters to try and derail or otherwise diminish his point, when really youre just making yourself look a fool because youre refusing to take what hes saying into context.

So what, Army scout, that doesnt make you 007, hate to break it to you.

Did YOU learn with a .22?
NO you DID NOT do that at at all in CONUS.
WE BOTH DID with a .223 WHICH IS THE DIFFERENCE here,ENTIRELY, between a .22 firing REPLICA and a supposed assault weapon
