No, I mean fucking guns in general shouldn't be near kids. They're deadly weapons no matter which way you look at ti and shouldn't be treated as toys.

Well, whether I could take it or not is a matter of circumstance, but if you were going to throw out a challenge like that it is pretty certain that you'd need it.

Depends on the definition of "assault weapon".

A burp gun with the ability to fire on full-automatic pretty much falls under any sane persons definition of assault weapon.

There is only one definition of an "assault weapon":
"An assault rifle is a select fire shoulder arm chambered for an intermediate power rifle cartridge capable of being fed from a detachable magazine."

Under you definition, a BB gun, firing plastic balls, utilizing an internal electrical motor and made of clear plastic is an "assault weapon". Even if it looks like from a Sci-Fi movie and not an exact replica of a real firearm.

We in Canada have a Cadet Corps (Army, Navy, Air Force). They are teenagers who are involved in militaristic/fitness training. As far as I know they get to fire .22 rifles and I have never herd of a rifle jumping in their hands and killing anyone. It must be a special Canadian air.

That is the definition of an "assault rifle" not an "assault weapon"

"An assault weapon is any of various semi or fully automatic firearms, especially assault rifles but not exclusively"

No they switched to pellet guns last I heard.

Apparently whiny parents who don't understand what a .22 is complained.

I'm assuming you realise the difference between a 9yr old with an Uzi and a teenager with (probably) the lowest powered semi-auto/bolt action rifle money can buy.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

Why does a cadet need to learn how to shoot a bmg?

By the definition of the "assault rifle" the "assault weapon" can not be "semi-auto" especially if no any other distinctive characteristics are given.

In my time, some of the senior cadets were also trained on C7A1 and went with my battalion for yearly shooting qualification to the range.

I know the difference, it's Serpion5 who thinks that kids and "fucking guns in general" shouldn't be together.

He is from UK. They are only allowed side by side shotguns there as everything else is an "assault weapon". It's our future if the Liberals win again in the federal election. As much as I hate Harper and his buddies at least they were smart enough to bring down the moronic gun registry for the non-restricted class. The only thing I am jealous of UK is their law allowing them the use of sound suppressors for "health reasons and the elimination of noise pollution".
