    I like this definition:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assault_rifle

    Specifially this part:

    a firearm must have at least the following characteristics to be considered an assault rifle:[4][5][6]
    • It must be an individual weapon with provision to fire from the shoulder (i.e. a buttstock);
    • It must be capable of selective fire;
    • It must have an intermediate-power cartridge: more power than a pistol but less than a standard rifle or battle rifle;
    • Its ammunition must be supplied from a detachable magazine rather than a feed-belt.
    • And it should at least have a firing range of 300 meters (1000 feet)

    Cosmetic. Possible requirements for an "assault weapon".

    That's where the term "Assault Weapon" comes from, because an Assault Rifle is defined as having select fire. Interchangeable use of the two terms falls into the same category as conflating semi-automatic and fully automatic.

    A horribly missleading and arbitrary phrase. Any objects ussed to "assault" can be an assault weapon.

    Assault bricks, assault screw drivers and lets not forget the dreaded hi-cap assault car that can run over hundreds of innocent children on just one tank of gas...

    And this is a true story, but what do you expect? It's a law made by politicians.
