The AR-15 is Not an Assault Rifle
Gun nuts are all about definitions. The AR-15 is not an assault rifle, they say, because it is semi-automatic while an assault rifle is fully automatic. Semi-automatic means you have to pull the trigger to fire a round. The concept of "semi-automatic" is a lie. The AR-15, and all other "semi-automatics" can easily be fired fully automatic without modifying the weapon using a technique called "bump firing." The lazy lunatic can easily, and legally, buy adapters for the rifle's stock that converts any AR-15 or AK-47 into a fully automatic weapon.
