The process to actually get an assault rifle generally takes about 6 months. So what 3 million "assault rifles" in the hands of citizens are you talking about? I try to educate and you give a cute sarcastic response.
You are quite correct in that and I am familiar with the terminology. However, "assault rifle" has become an almost accepted term for the generally legal semi auto clones of the military weapons so I went with that.

I will however never use the term "assault weapon" since that's leaving any logic behind and entering the realm of completely wanton ********... ;-)
