Can I guess? Is it "Ari" in real French? And, uh, maybe "le Lard" in that Beliquian French?

I seem to recall he had blue hair, which seemed a little odd to me, considering his Goth/emo leanings. But the knives made it unnerstandable.

As long as he didn't have orange hair, a cape and an assault rifle.

Did he suffer mental illness? Can we tell by the color of his hair? By his preferred choice of weapons?

Unfortunately, only by the body count.

Although I'm sure Ari wasn't clever enough to weasel grant money from the government for a doctorate.

Does anybody really believe that assault weapons and 1000's of rounds of ammo are everybody's unquestionable right?

"Assault weapon" is a term that was invented by politicians in an attempt to ban rifles that sort of look like assault rifles, but don't function the same way. If you're comfortable with such a process, here's a donut for you.

Sorry, I'm not a "weapons" guy (as you realize). Please, define for me what is an "assault rifle"? My son asked me, I waffled (not being a "weapons" guy). I'd rather have your recommended search results than trust my own judgment on this one. Or better yet, your own personal definition.

Assault rifles are capable of automatic fire, like a machinegun, but unlike a machinegun, they don't fire on automatic all the time. They have selector switches that allow the rifleman to go from single shot fire, to bursts of three rounds or so, to full automatic, which would empty the magazine with a single squeeze of the trigger. It's a way of delivering some of the firepower of a machinegun, which is typically a heavy, not easily portable, crew-served and/or vehicle-mounted weapon, into the hands of all the riflemen in a rifle squad. M-16 is an assault rifle. AR-15 is not, but it looks like an M-16 to the casual observer. Assault rifles were already illegal in the U.S. when the "assault weapon" ban (later repealed) was enacted. If words mean what they say, than an ax is an assault weapon, but Congress people aren't known for meaning what they say, much less saying what they mean.

Thank you. In words I can understand and convey. Much appreciated.

Is the AR-15 reasonably classified as a hunting rifle?

In your opinion, are assault rifles something that all resident US citizens of some quantifiable degree of mental health should be entitled to own? I mean, under the right to bear arms clause.

Assault rifle was dumbass Hitler's lame attempt to rename what the German Army had correctly labeled a Machine Carabine. Namely the MK-43
A carabine is a weapon shaped like a rifle, but whose size is less. A size somewhere in between the short ranged pistol (P), and the long ranged rifle (G). Machine (M) is used to designate automatic firing (full auto as the commie media calls it).
The German Army realized most eastern front fighing happened to at most 700m, and that there was no need for the uber powerful and cumbersome Mauser rifle. Also in urban combat, being able to select auto sure was handy, so they designed a carbine using a medium sized cartridge, detachable magazines, and be able to select between automatic fire, and semi-automatic fire (1 round per trigger pull). Hitler promptly banned it, because he was a dumb douchebag. The Army kept making them under the table because they were sorely needed. When Hitler realized this, and realizing there were popular, renamed them Assault Rifles so machine carabines could still be illegal, but assult rifles were not. (StuG-44). The StuG-44 was the same weapon, but with a new cool and socialist friendly name.

Seems to me that a weapon designed for these purposes isn't terribly reliant on accuracy. Hell, in war, it's more effective to wound your enemy than to kill him. Takes more man-power away caring for the wounded than for the dead.

Isn't a hunter, someone shooting game for provisions, better served by a weapon designed for accuracy?

Or are we talking self-defense? With legal access to 1000 rounds at a go.

I don't hunt, but if I did, I can't think of anything I'd want to hunt with it. The bullet is only .22 caliber (actually, slightly bigger at .223), but with a whole lot more gunpowder in the cartridge than a .22 has. For small game (rabbit), it's overkill, and for large game (deer), the bullet isn't heavy enough to ensure a knockdown and clean kill. But some people do like to shoot at non-living targets with them.

All full auto firearms have been illegal in the U.S. since the Prohibition era or so, in the absence of a special license that has to be obtained from the Feds, even though technically this is contrary to the Second Amendment, but the majority of the people have been able to live with that.

AR-15 is great for coyote. For what it is it is quite accurate, far more than the automata kalashnikova.

2A is not about hunting, but about protecting the 1A. the nutball was just a nutball. As a phyicist, he would have known bombs cause far more carnage, but I guess the sick bastard wanted to personaly kill a 6 year old. A handfull of gun owners in that theater could have ameliorated the bloodbath, but it is hard to second guess.

Depends upon the weapon, I'm sure. M-16 is pretty damned accurate up to about 460 meters (and the reason for that is, that's about as far as the average rifleman can see to make a shot with the naked eye). When I qualified with the M-16 in the military, I put the whole magazine (20 rounds) into a space the size of your clenched fist, even though I hadn't fired one before.
Range instructor said "NRA, huh?"
At the time, I barely knew what the NRA was, but I said "yes sir" anyway.
