We’ve all heard the leftist propaganda about guns. Almost every time, the words “assault weapons” or “assault rifles” are used to spread fear and hate by liberal lunatics.
They tell us that “assault weapons” are a threat to all of us, an abomination and the greatest evil since the Nazis. We must crack down on “assault weapons,” and it’s time for an “assault weapons” ban.
What kind of monster wants to allow “assault weapons” on the streets of America’s cities?
Here’s the thing, though: liberals don’t know what the hell they are talking about. Even the term “assault weapon” is not what leftist gun laws say it is. This is very important to know if you care about gun rights in America.
What the Hell is an ‘Assault Weapon?’
Democrats and leftists use the term “assault weapons” to scare people. They seem to mean that an assault weapon is any “scary looking” black-colored weapon.
According to policies going back years now, assault weapons are semi-auto weapons that have detachable mags and a folding or telescoping stock, pistol grip feature, or other add-ons that make it “scary.”
Here’s the thing: that doesn’t make them “assault weapons” in any way. The term started being used in the 80s to scare people into restricting semi-auto rifles and it’s done well. Liberals use it all the time, and people argue over it.
Now, they’re arguing over a fake term, since calling all semi-auto weapons “assault weapons” is like saying your used beater Ford truck from 1993 is the same as a 2021 Maserati.
It’s not the same at all. The only thing that an actual assault weapon and a semi-auto rifle or pistol has in common is that they’re both guns.
There aren’t any “Assault weapons” in the hands of citizens. People kill people. Not the guns. An inanimate object can’t kill someone. Also if I want to own 5 shotguns, 6 rifles, and 3 handguns I have a constitutional right to. Come back when you know what you’re talking about.

Semi-Auto Weapons are Not ‘Assault Weapons’
Semi-auto weapons, including semi-auto pistols, have been wrongly called assault weapons for years now; furthermore, the Democrats are trying to sneak in and ban them as well.
That’s why propaganda terms like this are so important; communists love to use language to twist meaning, scare the people, and steal their God-given rights. Don’t let them do it.
If you ban all semi-auto firearms, every second person in this country will have their weapons taken. Calling all semi-auto firearms “assault weapons” is an emotional tactic to take your guns and get well-meaning but ignorant Americans to sign onto it.
Proud Boys are tough when on street armed with assault weapons in a gang. Not so tough in a standard jail setting.

The Bottom Line
Semi-auto weapons of all kinds are what most Americans own. We use them to hunt, to keep away pests, to go shooting and to defend ourselves and our family.
They are not “assault weapons” and they are not responsible for the majority of crime. We will not let the Biden regime or anyone else take our guns in order to supposedly crack down on crime.
If you want to actually crack down on crime, then do it. Stop coming after responsible patriots who own guns. We aren’t buying what you’re selling.
