Fair enough, Wes. But Rap is talking about the rate of fire. How about my 7mm magnum. It fires one round each time you pull the trigger. It is a pure sporting arm, used for long range deer hunting ...... unless I were to use it as a sniper rifle, in which case it's ballistics make it one helluva long range weapon. I am a law abiding citizen, so that is not what I use it for. Is it an "assault rifle"? Nope. Could it be used for devastating effect? Yep. Would I rather have a shotgun at close range? Yep. Is it an assault weapon? Nope, it's for hunting.
