Could they tell us what these terms actually mean?

To the Editor:

— Could someone please explain what is an “assault” weapon. And, while we’re at it, what is a high capacity “clip?”

At Quantico, Va., I qualified on the rifle range with a semiautomatic M-14 rifle with a 20-round magazine.

Would a semiautomatic M-14 or a semiautomatic M-16 be considered “assault” weapons?

Would a 20 round or 30 round magazine be considered a “clip?” These are tough questions tri-state liberals should consider!

Do these same people realize that many of us are laughing at them?
