"Assault Rifle" is a technical term, for a light rifle firing an intermediate round that is capable of selective fire, switching between semi-auto (one round fired per trigger press) and full-auto (more than one round fired per trigger press). It IS abused by the media, either through ignorance or to grind a political axe, as a term to describe any long arm used in a crime that does not look like Elmer Fudd's shotgun.

"Assault Weapon" is the made up term by the Brady campaign to sound scary, as part of the campaign described by Eric Holder to brainwash people to their way of thinking. The truly extremist "journalists" tend to use this term.

3. Now that we've had our daily Microsoft-is-the-stupidest-and-evilest-company-on-the-planet-for-not-accurately-predicting-an-arbitrary-holiday-date-change-years-in-advance post, I'd like to see some more stories about how Americans are stupid and evil and some scientific studies showing that Christians are genetically inferior to the Atheist master race.

Too much work. Can't we just bitch about the /. "editors"?
