I've long been baffled by why we use the term on the wiki when classifying weapons. Why do we allow help the gun grabbers perpetuate their myths?

Like it or not, "Assault Rifle" is not a term that was made up by gun control advocates, it is a legitimate term. As that very link says, "Assault Weapons" and "Assault Rifles" are two different things and are not interchangeable. Granted most of the time in TV and Movies an "Assault Rifle" may actually be a civillian semi-automatic rifle modified to full auto, but this is what it is intended to be and what it functionally now is, so I see no problem categorising it as such. If we had a section on a page called "Assault Weapons" and put Uzi Pistols and Tec-9s in there, then we would have a problem, but as it stands we use the correct classification for these weapons.

Yeah, assault rifle is formally defined as a select-fire weapon which fires an intermediate round, it's one of the most solid classifications for a weapon type. If it were gun-grabby we'd be calling the entire Beretta 92 series "machine guns" since one of them can fire in bursts.

I list rifles altogether, M16, M1 Garand etc. So they can just be listed as "Rifles" no assault.

If I do a page that doesn't have many long guns, i tend to just put them in a "Rifles" section, but on big pages i have on occasion split them into "Rifles" "Assault Rifles" and "Sniper Rifles". Is not perfect classification as they are all still "Rifles" and some of the assault rifles will probably be battle rifles, but is better than nothing.

Ruger has a shortcut way to email all of your local and state officials, representatives, senators, and other officials.
