60. it is still dishonest coined for dishonest purposes

We are talking military similar weapons.

The terms assault weapon and assault style weapons have received court recognition.

Whether you like it or not, they are used in a clear way and will continue to do so.
where? They have not been used in a clear way because the definitions vary.

An NO, had Breivik NOT used something that fired that rapidly, he could have been overpowered. He was very clear about what he chose and why he chose it. Among other things, it would have taken so much longer to even try to attack that he would not have been able to target so many people. He himself noted this in his plans and in his testimony.
assuming the kids would have been inclined to do so. I actually doubt it if he was doing at more than very close range.

He was very clear that if he could not have obtained a cheaper version - his words - of a Bushmaster AR-15, he would have been much more concerned about succeeding - in other words, it would have made it less likely, considerably less likely, that he would have even attempted it.
once again Bushmaster is a name of a manufacture, just like Rock River, Colt, Olympic Arms. You are repeating pundits without looking things up for yourself.

That was his justification for waiting to do so until after he had acquired the weapons that included the assault STYLE mini-M14.
he used a semi automatic rifle with a wooden stock. In another post you said Norway banned "assault weapons" which is it? That meets no definition of "assault style"

Further that short list of mass shootings and the numerous other correlations to crime of these kinds of weapons make restricting or even outright banning them legitimate, regardless of whether or not you are happy about it.
they are almost never used in street crime, as the FBI UCR shows.

Your approval or consent is not required; neither is mine. It is not a decision made by individuals. It is a decision made by overwhelming public support.
There is no overwhelming public support. How much of that public assumes they are talking about machine guns, since Bloomburg has been implying that they are talking about such. Public opinion has moved very little if at all since Sandy Hook and all of the ranting and disinformation from TV pundits and politicians.
