    Terms used by anti gun people

    I'm trying to make a list of all the terms used by the anti gun people to scare us. Here are some I already have.

    1. Assault rifle/weapon
    2. Sniper rifle
    3. Armor piercing bullets

    I know there are a lot more, additions would be great. Thanks.

    o High caliber rifle.
    o Cop killer bullets.
    o Saturday Night Special.
    o Exploding bullets (commonly referring to 5.56mm/2.23 ammo)
    o High powered rifle when referring to AR-styled rifles.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    White male, camo pants, combat boots, OC'd sidearm = Klansman! (been called that more than a few times o.O)

    Hmm... I'd like to set a stand at a firearms convention, with a Hunting rifle, and a M95 BMG. With a big sign with neon pink letters that says "This is NOT a sniper rifle... THIS IS!"

    sooo, you want a needle gun? lol

    a couple more: packing heat, gun toting. Those two always get under my skin because I know they're always said or printed with a side of smugness and meant to sound negative.

    If by "needle" you mean rivet gun! I could only imagine the size of a 2.23 caliber bullet given that it is 10x as large as a .223 caliber!

    any AK or AR style weapon = Machine gun *even though it is considered a light rifle by the military and a machine gun is belt or drum fed ........

    us=gun nut

    anything over 10 rounds= high capacity magazine. even though alot of .22 plinking rifles have 20rnd mags.

    guns= killing machines

    lazer sight = tactical enhancement for murder . no i just call it better accuracy in the dark.

    just a few i've heard.

    um who doesn't use the term "armor piercing bullets". Everyone that has an AR15 should have a case of them. Hint: they are the green tipped ones. Or do you prefer the more engineering lingo of "enhanced penetration cartridge"?
    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    Continuing on with what the OP wanted. I think...

    4. Assault Clips
    5. Assault Pistol (new one I just saw on the brady bunch website)

    Congresswoman McCarthy, from new york, during the Assault Weapons Ban hearings was asked about Evil Features.
    when asked about Barrel shrouds, she described it so all could understand its function.
