Yes this is the question so let's see the answers to Which is the True Assault Style Weapon?
Winner, winner, chicken dinner!Somewhere back in the history of the AR-style weaponry someone started calling them "assault rifles" because of the AR prefix. It actually stands for Armalite Rifle.
Fiction and Fact, from The Master Chief's almanac.
And, of course, the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
Along with some other facts on the topic.
This whole topic came up the other day as a bunch of us were sitting at the dinning room table visiting and having a good time. I do have to agree and suggest our group also had this same consensus. So because of the MSM and Politicians anything AR or AK is automatically an assault weapon.I would say, according to those who claim to be the experts and know nothing. That the AR is what they call an assault weapon.
