Why is this important? Why do we need to know anything about “assault” rifles?


It’s important to be able to combat liberal hysteria. Knowledge is power, and if you’re the one in the room who knows this stuff, the rest will be forced to shut up and listen, or leave, lest they reveal their ignorance. There is nothing more important in discussions like these than to arm oneself with indisputable facts.

So what’s an assault rifle? Truth be told, there is no such thing. It’s a made up term that has been adopted, yet essentially has no meaning, except for terms assigned to it for the express purpose of scaring people. After all – an “assault” rifle could only be used to “assault” the innocent – never for defense. See how this works?

Well, if this is the case, why is the AR-15 thusly named? What does the AR of AR-15 stand for? Most claim it of course stands for “Assault Rifle” or Automatic Rifle – right? Well NO, no is does not, because, as I stated, “assault” rifle is an imagined term, and “automatic” rifle should be self-explanatory. If not, I’ll get to it.

The AR-15 stands for ArmaLite Rifle, model 15. ArmaLite is the company that originated the AR-15 all the way back in the 1950s. But ArmaLite makes a variety of other rifles like the AR-10, AR-30, 50, and the M-15. These are also black and scary, pistol grip rifles. read more
