I've said it before, and it bears repeating, if the gun grabbers are targeting semi-automatic rifles today, so-called assualt weapons, then tomorrow they will be after bolt action rifles, the so-called sniper rifles.
Let's not forget all single shots could probably classified as zip guns and all handguns as Saturday Night Specials!

I carried a sniper rifle in LE, a Remington 700 BDL Varmint in 223

How illustrative of the issue at hand. The Remington 700 BDL you called a sniper rifle is billed as a great hunting rifle by Remington and has been for the last 40 years.

Yeh, it was also billed as a great LE Sniper Rifle per the USAMU Counter-Sniper Guide from the '70s.

And so the same rifle does not care what it is doing. You can give it whatever name you want, calling it a hunting rifle or a sniper rifle, but in the end, such a name isn't a classification of the firearm, but an application of it.

Sort of reminds me of the differences between hunting scopes, sniper scopes, and countersniper scopes.
