"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 'assault rifles'."

- Bruce H. Kobayashi and Joseph E. Olson, Stanford Law and Policy Review

    It's true that at this moment we're focusing on big guns and not handguns and we ought to be looking at both, but the idea of "assault weapon" is important because we need a term to describe weapons capable of killing lot of people very quickly.

    The website says that semi-automatic weapons can fire 45-60 times a minute, much less than automatic weapons, like that's something we should be okay with. I don't know about you, but even 45 bullets a minute is way too many bullets.

    I'm not sure what the website is looking to say. Clearly it's pro-guns. To me, though, it says that out attempts to limit guns were too weak. That makes me think we ought to have stronger limits, more bans.
