In my travels, I get to read different newsprint, this time in Tift County. One article from a columnist was about gun control. He used the word “assault” six times in the article. He used the words assault rifle, assault-type rifles and assault-type weapons. In my opinion, the use of any weapon to harm any person would be an assault on that person.
I have heard of a single shot, a bolt action, a semi-automatic and a full-automatic. When we started going green and going forward, we started hearing about assault weapons. A machine gun or a Gatling gun can be used to assault people.
The military used the M-1 rifle, sometimes referred to as the Army rifle. This rifle, even though it was extremely accurate, was just too dog-gone heavy.
Without using Hollywood movies, I challenge anyone to prove that there has been over 10 shots fired in any American home!
