First off, please do not spout media popular terms like "assault rifle" when you clearly have no idea what it even is
Being an ex soldier I know exactly what an assault rifle is, perhaps you should nott ASS
ume what knowledge others have, especially as I had
already stated I was an ex soldier.
but to call something an "assault rifle" because it's black and has a big magazine and is scary looking is stupid.
An assault rifle is very different from a blot action rifle or a lever action rifle. An assault rifle typically has a shorter barrel due to its
effective range is designed to be between 200 - 300 meters as opposed to 500 - 800 meters on a typical bolt action rifle. This is to increase mobility
with the weapon and also to reduce the weight and encumbrance. They are magazine fed because they alternate between semi automatic and full automatic
fire. Whilst both Bolt action and lever action rifles can be fitted with magazines they do not offer semi automatic and fully automatic fire. A
typical example of an assault rifle would be an AK47 or an M16 and are designed for use in mid to short range combat. And assault rifle was a term
created by the military not the media so get your facts straight.
Secondly, we have them in our homes because it is our right. If you actually bothered looking up crime statistics, you would see "assault" rifles
owned by citizens in homes account for virtually zero gun crime. The VAST majority of gun crime in America is in urban areas, and perpetrated by
desperate African American gentlemen....
I never said it wasn't your right, and in fact stated in both posts that i was just giving an opinion and not trying to enforce my views on anyone,
the aggression in your post tells me what an ignorant arsehole you are, and blaming gun crime, or at least implying that nearly all gun crime is down
to African Americans shows just what a racist you are also. If you need an assault rifle in your home, I would also suggest you are a
