"Assault weapons" and "wepons of war" are political terms. Not military terms.Liberals and Commies did not create the "assault weapons" term. It was coined by gun guys.
Phillip Peterson (as implied) didn't coin the term. The original, assault rifles (subsequent and intentionally morphed into the politically nebulous assault weapons) was coined by a Socialist Democrat. Kalifornia's Socialist Democrats overreaching ban was, at least temporarily, declared unconstitutional by a federal judge. Stanc, do you have a problem with the rule of law?
