What’s an “assault pistol”?

After firing on co-workers with an assault pistol during a meeting about 9am Wednesday (2am Thursday AEST), the suspect killed himself when confronted by police

I’ve heard of a starter’s pistol or starters gun.

I’ve heard of an automatic pistol.

I’ve heard of a Sex Pistol.

But…what the living fuck is an ASSAULT pistol???

Did it leap out of its holster and start shooting people?? Is it a Glock (I mean yeah yeah we know to gun grabbers they are ALL Glocks) with a bad temper?

Was it a Kimber having a bad hairtrigger day?

Me confused.

Anything that is black and scary and can be fired with one hand. If it needs two hands, it’s an assault rifle, even if it’s a single-shot .22

But remember, according to the media, .22s are “high-powered”

“But…what the living fuck is an ASSAULT pistol???”

I guess there are some theoretical contenders:

H&K VP-70
Beretta 93R
vz.61 Skorpion
C96 Schnellfeuer
Lebman 1911

The Leftards Dictionary™ definition.
assault weapon: noun Any scary looking gun that makes me wet myself.

Now they are saying the Virginia shooter used an SKS!

I guess if it can accept an evil “banana clip” it must be an “assault whatever”.

God save us from all these morons.

More range time and reload practice needed by the good guys, and I mean us on the street. In my view the security detail did a fantastic job in suppressing the threat while being outmatched in firepower but not in aim and poise.

Oh snap!. For a moment there Brendan, I thought a gun amnesty was where all citizens subjects, were encouraged to go and acquire a gonne.

I truly feel for you folks down under. Are there any sane people working in government (a rhetorical question)?

Ah! Never mind, we seem to have an equal number of dolts in elected office here though there is growing push back by “we the people”. :em01:

Those two things are mutually exclusive, sir.
A gun amnesty, eh?
Does the gun go free? Can it keep it’s bullets?
If it goes to therapy, will it get a lesser kinda’ descriptor?
You know like, ‘Scary’ pistol or ‘Bad weapon thingy

It’s an evil black scary looking pistol with a shoulder thingy that goes up and down and rail thingies for attachments and a bullet that holds lots of clips. Duh.

I had this same conversation with my roommate, and I had to explain it to him.

………

Quit looking at me like that. My roommate looked at me in the exact same “have you lost your friggin’ mind?” way when I explained it to him. I didn’t make this shit up.

Exactly.
Assault polled the scariest so they use that for any gun, I’ve even seen “assault magazine”

They want to use “military style” but people like the military and hate lefties.
