    The thing I found interesting is that the AK was called an assault weapon but when they showed MPD's AR-15's they were just called 'semi-automatic rifles'. This, of course was Flyn talking.

    What would you have the AR-15 called but a semi? And the AK-47 is a select fire automat rifle an assault weapon. Will we damn the lamestream media for truthin' as well as lyin"?

    I guess we should call them both assault weapons or both a semi-automatic rifles.

    The weapon used was not an actual select fire AK47 assault rifle. It was a semiautomatic AK clone. There are only a couple manufacturers of "AK" clone platform rifles which use the AK47 designation. The media should stick to the semiauto descriptor for both the LEO rifles and the thugs' rifles.

    We should call neither assault weapons as they are not. They are both simply semiautomatic rifles.

    I agree but that's far to complicated for the Lib Media. by saying AK-47 / Assault Rifle it frightens people more, a sensational word far too over used by the media.

    I thought Bushy Sr.'s import ban (executive order) banned the import of AK-47's by name, and that was why most manufacturers went with names like "MAK-90", "SAR", and "AKM". Which were essentially the same rifle, just with a different name on it. Of course, that wouldn't apply to any domestically made firearms. Besides "AK" stands for "Автомат Калашникова 47" or in English "Automatic Kalishnikov 47".

    He is pleading "special knowledge" without any evidence cited. The newspaper article said "AK". Sure, its probably wrong, but there is no evidence to the contrary.

    No such executive order is in effect. The root issue is the 1968 Gun Control Act which bans the import of any firearms that do not have a "sporting purpose". This was given more teeth in 1989 when the BATF redefined its interpretation of that law. This is when you saw the advent of the MAK 90s, etc with bald barrels, etc..
    On March 14, 1989, BATF suspended imports of "AKS type weapons, UZI carbines, FN/FAL-type weapons, FN/FNC-type weapons and Steyr Aug semi-automatic weapons." The "temporary" ban was extended to virtually all other imported military look-alike semi-autos on April 5, 1989.
    Bush Sr's biggest sin was to not oppose the ATF and just roll over. While the NRA played a significant part in his election, their lack of support in reaction to this inaction played a significant part in the failure of him being elected for a second term.

    Rhetorical question is rhetorical......


    The NRA merely did not spend the money and resources to back Bush. I do not recall who their candidate of choice was. We both know it was neither Clinton nor AlGore.

    The NRA didn't endorse a Presidential candidate in 1992

    Semi or fully automatic, how can a firearms be described with a tactic or action, which is what 'assault' is?

    'Assault rifle' is a noun phrase, with 'assault' the attributive adjective and 'rifle' the simple noun. 'Assault' has many definitions, both verb and nouns.

    Doug, that sounds correct. English class was not my strength. My point is the adding of the word 'assault' denotes a purpose for the rifle, when it is only a mere tool. When the general public reads these articles and sees another 'assault weapon' robbery, they come to realize it as evil, because that's what is sounds like to them. Like the weapon has no other purpose at all than 'assault', however you define it.
