Words Have Meaning

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. …”  –  William Jefferson Clinton

The Quote of The Day (courtesy of Joe Huffman)

The term “assault weapon” is the fake term. “Assault rifle”, or Sturmgewehr, is the correct term for a light rifle or carbine firing an intermediate power cartridge (more powerful than a typical pistol but less powerful than a typical high powered rifle), having full automatic fire capability and feeding from a detachable magazine. The largely cosmetic feature of the pistol grip stock is a other, possibly defining trait, being the THE original Sturmgewehr (fielded by the National Socialist Workers’ Party) had a pistol grip stock.

The serious use of the term “assault weapon” pretty well defines a person as having little or no credibility in regard to firearms. Today’s socialists are pissed off at seeing anything that even resembles an assault rifle, I do herein posit, mainly because it’s THEIR weapon design and they don’t like seeing advocates of liberty carrying THEIR weapon.

Food for thought.

Or at least food for amusement.

  1. It always ticks off the liberal mind when the “enemy” (you know: conservatives, libertarians, and freedom-lovers of all stripes) appropriates their lingo and makes it benign.

    Shame we can’t do the same to the liberals, themselves. 🙂

  2. They say “assault weapon” and I say, carbine.
    They say “large capacity” and I say, standard.

    They say “X” and I say, Up Yours Pajama Boy!!

  3. About 99% of the ‘gun-haters’ would not know a rifle from a post hole digger.

    • Agreed. I have a neocon childhood friend, with whom I got into the subject of ‘gun control’ He had no idea as to the inaccuracy or limitations involved – he just wanted ‘x’ banned. I’m certain it was because of the ‘facts’ he say on the news…
