1,100 Green Berets set record straight on guns
'AR-15 is not an assault rifle. It is a single shot semi-automatic'

Res Ipsa Loquitor

“The terms ‘assault weapon’ and ‘assault rifle’ are often confused,” they say. “According to Bruce H. Kobayashi and Joseph E. Olson, writing in the Stanford Law and Policy Review, ‘Prior to 1989, the term ‘assault weapon’ did not exist in the lexicon of firearms. It is a political term, developed by anti-gun publicists to expand the category of assaults rifles.’”

The Green Berets, who use the weapons, point out the M4A1 carbine is a U.S. military service rifle – it is an assault rifle.” [Full]

Accurately and succinctly put.  However, they've heard all this before and are either just too stuck on the stupidity emanating from their Progressive cloister or,  like Chucky Schumer [Schumer’s False Fire] is captured by the brilliance of his own false analogies..

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”
The gentlemen are wrong. The term was invented in WWII by the Germans when they first issued the new Sturm Gewehr (Assault Rifle) to their troops.
Read the post, the term they refer to as made up is "assault weapon."
The term of interest is "Belagerung Waffe", or "Siege Waffle" which is insufficiently pejorative and -ahem- assaults the USDA carbohydrate pyramid. Hence the ham-handed substitution of a salt rifle.

--Jimmy don\'t play that
In 1983 I first heard the term "assault rifle" to apply to full-auto capable .223s and "battle rifles" to apply to full-auto .308s.
Rog, question, if you are firing your M-16 over a sand bag berm in defense of your outpost. Is it still an "assault weapon". In 5 years in Uncle Sams Misguided Children I never heard that term. -Anymouse
It's a gun for fun
Siege Waffle? Sounds delicious.

"This is my weapon, this is my gun.."

You know how the rest goes...
