MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle Falsely Claims ‘An Assault Rifle is Different Than a Gun’

Assault rifles are actually not guns at all — that’s according to MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle, at least. During a morning segment of MSNBC Live, the host made the false, patently absurd claim during a discussion on repealing the Second Amendment. “Why do you need any assault rifles? An assault rifle is different than a gun. A hunting enthusiast and one who needs an assault rifle, those are two different things,” said Ruhle.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ASSUALT RIFLE...assault troops use select fire (machine guns) weapons. NOT assault weapons!!!!!!!

The whole of the English Language is now under assault. It's crazy.
The term "assault rifle" is actuall a "term of art." If I am attacking someone with a bolt action .22LR rifle, a single shot Flintlock Kentucky Long Rifle, or a Garand, I'm "assaulting" them .... so maybe what I'm using is an "assault rifle?" A Kentucky Flintlock ASSAULT RIFLE?

No, assault rifles --meaning AR type --- are actually used for shooting contests, sports, and, yes, HUNTING. There are other calibers available (.308 and .300 blackout) that are even better calibers for hunting the big stuff.

The whole of the Bill of Rights is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals. It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of. — Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789.
