Any gun you attack with is assault weapon

Letter to the Editor

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!

When they pick up more than 43 casings after a driveby in Los Angeles, I would say more than ten rounds were fired into the home. Then again you could be like me and not consider California a ligitimate part of America. I hear Mexico wants it back because it was illegally seized by White Settlers. The M1 Garand was the best Battle Rifle ever made. Those carrying it in WWII loved it so much, many of them owned one in Civilian life. Yes, it was heavy, but so was the BAR. I never met a BAR Man that would have traded that weapon off for something else in actual combat.
