WTF is a semi-automatic "assault gun"? There is no such thing! It is only a term invented to demonize guns.

Where to even start with this question? First of all its assault rifle not assault gun. They are only use by the military. An AK-47 is fully automatic not semi automatic. They come from the Soviet Union so how would the US ban them in any way? Any even if that made any sense there are over 75 million of them already made that criminals would still get their hands on, assuming you are trying to keep them from criminals and not law abiding citizens. semi automatic rifles make up maybe 1% of gun crimes so what is the point? How does someone actually write such an erroneous poll question? Ever heard of research? What's worse is finding 900 morons that were actually as stupid to answer it. Nice work donkey.
