What's an assault weapon, anyway? A gun glossary

There are 9 comments on the KTIV-TV Sioux City story from Jan 25, 2013, titled What's an assault weapon, anyway? A gun glossary. In it, KTIV-TV Sioux City reports that:

Even Americans who have never touched a gun are probably familiar with the looks and names of a few - the military M16, the action-movie's Uzi, the historic Colt .45. The terms thrown around in the national debate over gun control can be harder to fathom.

Note to anti-gun Americans. We outnumber the military atleast 25 to 1. No order to fire on American citizens would be obeyed. Any officer giving such an order would immediately be killed by his troops. All enlisted men & officers swear an oath to the Constitution. Any President who ordered officers to fire on American citizens would be a criminal. Lincoln's ability to fight the south was because of treason at Fort Sumpter....today's specifics would not be equal. Technology never wins wars. If it did the entire US military with their planes, tanks, missiles, etc. would have won in Viet Nam.....they lost to a bunch of bare-footed men with RIFLES. The British ruled the seas, had a giant professional army, and were the "Super Power" of their day.......American farmers with muskets & RIFLES utterly defeated them.

I am amazed at the fools who ask, "What could you people do against the Army and Marines?" As implied above, they'd never fight against their own people for a tyrant they never met, so I guess we would welcome them to our side. If they did fight for a tyrannical president they would be quickly defeated, the weapons returned to the people, and the tyrant's neck broken.

An assault weapon is anything that is scary to someone. A scary name can turn it into an assault weapon.

Just require all firearms to be a light shade of pink. And have warm fuzzy feeling names like Fluffy, Bambi, Butterfly, et al. Then the anti-gun advocates have a warm & fuzzy feel good law (that doesn't work like the last ban) and legal gun owners don't have their 2nd amendment rights violated.

Sounds pretty stupid, but is just as likely to stop lunatics as a new gun ban.

Never trust anyone with your guns and never think you can't be backstabbed.

The ammo cabinet at Walmart is now half empty. Shotshells are plentiful, but the once full locked cabinet is now empty-looking.

Gun storage containers are also in short supply (example):
