Consider this - in California, a Colt AR-15 (e.g. AR6721), owned by a police officer is now called a Patrol Rifle[1] while the exact same rifle in the hands of a serf citizen is an "assault weapon".
Excellent point that really shines the light on how terminology is used to assign motives that are not necessarily (or even, usually) present, i.e. it's not a hammer, it's a 'bludgeon'.

So VPC calls the 'patrol rifles' assault weapons, even in the hands of police? Interesting.
