"1966? They didn't have assault weapons back then. He didn't have an iPad either."
- Genius Bob, scoffing at the idea that the guns used by Charles Whitman matter because "assault weapons" like the AR-15 didn't exist back then
Er, you do realise that "assault weapons" predate Charles Whitman's massacre at the University of Texas, don't you?
During World War II, Hitler personally chose the name "Sturmgewehr" (literally, "storm rifle", translated in English as "assault rifle") to describe a new class of small arm, the Sturmgewehr 44, which combined the characteristics of a carbine, submachine gun and automatic rifle.
The Sturmgewehr 44: Not an "assault weapon," according to a gungrabber.
The Bushmaster AR-15: An "assault weapon," according to a gungrabber.
But, do you wanna know what does predate the iPad?
