60. I hear my name, I read the words ...
he had an SKS....
which has a 10 round integral box magazine. It's NOT an assault weapon, even according to the 1994 AW ban. The rifle fires the 7.62x39mm round, which is an "intermediate" cartridge at best.


... I think to myself ... why would someone be saying this in response to someone who has just said:

I could not care less about the brand name of the firearm that this individual used to kill and injure if I were comatose.

(knowing as we do that "brand name" was a facetious reference to whatever frills and furbelows this item may or may not have had and that some people have such a strange fascination with.)

I scratch my head, I move on. I'll address the rest under your other post.
