So an assault rifle has to be full auto but a BAR, which is full auto (or select fire), is not an assault rifle because it uses a full-power cartridge, making it merely an automatic rifle. No wonder people get confused.
Say, who was it who said what an assault rifle is? Was it the Lady of the Lake? John Browning? Josef Nickl? Or Mikhail Kalashnikov? I have no idea who designed the StuG 44.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
