Why should the government get to tell me what a firearm is? I think bazookas and grenade launchers are firearms too.
Again, obvious straw man. The vast majority of people don't want to own such weapons and I think the difference between a semiautomatic rifle and a bomb should be obvious. Bombs are designed specifically for indiscriminate killing.
By who? And why do you consider it an assault rifle? Maybe because it looks all big/bad/and dangerous?
These ar15s are considered assault rifles.
Let's not try mediocre logic. If you think you can point out a fallacy by ignoring a connection that's fine but the truth is that the government has drawn a line for what people can have and you seem to be fine with those lines correct? You seem to understand the absurdity. Yet you can't do the same with other weapons that are designed for war. It's all just a label. The "bullets" determine the category. What size bullet is acceptable to you? Can those bullets explode? How big of an explosion? It's all about agreeing on where the line should be drawn. Personally if you like machine guns join the military.
More assumptions from people who don't know me bubb. I'm a gun owner and despite what you think. These ar15s are considered assault rifles now even though they are technically semi auto. The vernacular has changed. Or should I just research and learn stuff about guns I own

why do you have to kill sentient creatures - it is disgusting and evil.
Why not just scare them away and lock your meat up properly.
I hate this ' lets kill anything that moves ' mentality.
