The term "assault rifle" is a direct translation of the German word Sturmgewehr


Wrong. It isn’t a direct translation, it is a loose translation.

The DIRECT translation is STORM gun

Fair enough. That is the word-for-word translation, though we could quibble about the EXACT meaning of "gewehr" as "gun" or "rifle."

But the standard practical translation of Sturmgewehr has been "assault rifle" since about 1950 ... long predating the current gun control controversy.

Also known as the direct translation.

I don't want to go off on a philology tangent, but if you speak any language other than English, you know that a word-for-word translation VERY OFTEN does not convey the same meaning in both languages.

If you translate "que horas son?" to English word-for-word (what are the hours?), no one would have any idea that you were trying to ask "what time is it?"

Yes there is - although it doesn't apply to ARs.

You're not on a tangent, you're wrong.

You were attempting to look smart and you failed because your cut and paste source was wrong.

Jesus, take the L and move on.

This sort of squrimy BS makes you look small.

You know that excessive editing of posts makes a person look dishonest, don't you?

I disagree. All rifles are assault rifles.

We agree. It is all a bunch of word games to influence morons and it works.

Sorry I triggered you, little man.

BTW, calling a woman "sugartits" is exceptionally misogynistic...if I were as small as you, I might report you to the Mods.

Perhaps (as with every 3rd or 4th post of yours) you should quickly edit this away, little man.

Careful, Mr. Locke seems to be a pretty sensitive little guy.

And a Misogynist as well.

No, it's people like you that like to lump everything that they don't like as bad and needs to be banned.

Don't like it or understand it? Banned.
Regardless of if you understand or fail to understand the topic at hand.

The only topic that should be discussed with this horrible instance in Texas is that this country needs a serious discussion around our mental health situation.

Mr. Locke, NO ONE on this board believes you are a man, so perhaps we are even.

I will give you one last chance to apologize for your unprovoked Misogynist attack.

I said squirming makes you look small, you responded with a sexist personal attack.

Stop digging and apologize.

You may use one of your several alters to do so if you wish.

There is such thing as an assault rifle but by definition it’s a firearm that can switch from semi automatic fire to automatic fire. The vast majority of US gun owners do not own an assault rifle. A lot of people own semi automatic rifles. The anti gun crowd does need to come up with a new term because every time they call a semi automatic rifle an assault weapon they just show their ignorance.
