30. I believe in freedom from restriction, in most forms...
I am willing to change a personal belief on this issue but would need a little help.

I just need to know why a citizen would have need of an assault weapon.
My understanding, admittedly limited as a city dweller that has only heard of their use as weapons used to hunt humans, is that the only use for them over shotguns and hunting rifles is to kill people.

I am not being an ass I really just want to know what people want them for if not murdering other people. I guess I am looking for a point of view I am unfamiliar with out of curiosity.

So please, if you can, let me know why they should be easily available and for what practical use.
