Then I recommend you re-look at the definition of assault rifle:
The difference between an assault rifle and any other rifle is that an assault rifle is capable of full-auto fire and semi-automatic modes.
As you resonded to Pastrami about Assault Rifles, I thought it was important to bring up
So, in summary, an assault rifle is not a sporting rifle with a larger magazine.
Unless you are being sarcastic, and I will detract my posts. I just thought you were implying that is was ridiculous that civilians don't have access to them, and I asked for justification on why they should.
If I misunderstood your post, however, I apologize.
