RUSH LIMBAUGH: No Such Thing As An “Assault Weapon”… “It’s A Political Invention.”

RUSH: Let’s go through these gun terms just for the heck of it here, for what it might matter. “Assault weapon.” “Assault rifle.” There is no such thing. Go to a gun store and tell ‘em you want an assault weapon, and the guy will look around and show you his entire inventory and say, “Pick one.” But there is nothing — no brand, no label — that identifies the weapon as an assault rifle or assault weapon.

There’s no such category.

It does fire multiple rounds with one pull. A semiautomatic weapon fires one bullet at a time and puts another bullet into the chamber. It’s called an “assault rifle” to create the image that it is an instrument of mass death with one pull of a trigger. It’s a political invention. The whole term “assault rifle” is a political invention. Semiautomatic and automatic weapons, really there’s not much difference. One bullet at a time. You have to squeeze the trigger every time you want to fire a bullet.
