NSSF: Modern Sporting Rifle

The NSSF has launched an educational campaign to demystify the Modern Sporting Rifle, commonly referred to as an AR-15. The lamestream media has colorful names for it designed to cause confusion among those who are not familiar with the details, such as "assault weapon" or "military style weapon." Assault is a verb, not a noun (an action, not a name).

Assault can be performed utilizing a vast array of tools, utilizing any number of common items like a kitchen knife, knuckles, or a baseball bat. Nevertheless I don't hear anyone calling my baseball bat an assault bat, and there is not any reason to call my modern sporting rifle an assault weapon. If I were to add any words to the name of my modern sporting rifle, I'd say Self Defense would be more appropriate than assault. Self Defense Rifle is a fitting name, and it applies well.

I'm glad to see the NSSF running a Modern Sporting Rifle educational campaign, it is definitely helpful.
