Assault Weapon And Other Words Used To Divide Us

AmidsTheNoise trades in his v-neck for a crewneck and speaks on the topic:

I’m anxious to see whether or not in video three we will see him in a mockneck, then in video four a turtleneck.

All jokes aside, this guy has a great way or presenting the facts and giving examples.

If you missed his first video; choose your own crime stats, make sure to check it out… it’s very good as well.

Thoughts?

Yep right now the term “Assault Weapon” is 100% meaningless….even here in Massachusetts where we still have an “Assault Weapon Ban”. I have a ban-compliant FAL, but depending on what bullshit laws get floated, it could magically transform to the “Rifle” it is now, to an “Assault Weapon”.

Why? Well no reason at all.

Many people use the word/prefix “assault” in a generic way to describe something that is used to attack/harm someone. It is redundant to generically label any ‘weapon’ as an ‘assault weapon’ because by default, all weapons/guns are capable of and intended for assault. By default, EVERY firearm is an ASSAULT WEAPON. But, when that term is applied to the word “rifle” it becomes a very specific type of rifle that must meet specific requirements (hence AR-15 is NOT an Assault Rifle because it does not have select fire). This guy has a great point that people just misuse and twist words to sell and coerce others into compliance by toying with their emotions. It’s exactly what happened in the movie Inception – the gang couldn’t get that guy to comply based on logic/reasoning, so they used something that he could not resist: by making him act on a strong emotional response…
