What bothers me about this whole story is the use of the term "assault rifle." It sounds like a technical term, but it largely translates to "scary gun." While there are legal definitions, they are rarely used. So we have guns like the M1 Carbine or SKS, which aren't assault rifles by any legal definiton, but which are called assault rifles by the press.
