Well, I've never wanted one. They're impractical, and civilians don't have any real need for them, although they were available to the public until the 1920s and Prohibition, I think. The only thing that they're really useful for is war. I certainly don't believe that full-auto assault rifles should be available to the general public. That would be crazy. I don't think that even the NRA is advocating something like that.
And I agree with you that they should not be called "assault rifles" if they are semi-auto only because they don't fit the definition, just like you said.
"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
