Well, the term “assault weapon” was largely made up, so I don’t see why it should be so wrong that a media outlet decided to use made up guns to illustrate assault weapons. I wonder if there are any models in there that shoot that dangerous armor piercing 10mm caseless ammo.

Just wanted to say I got the reference. Also you do have a valid point given how dumb it is that such components make a “Safe” gun to a “Dangerous” one.
But they tipped their hands when they called guns that complied with the AWB as the gun makers exploiting a “Loophole”.
Personally, I think that is a rare correct usage of the word â€œloopholeâ€ by them. A loophole has to do with intent of the law. It is incorrect to call it â€œThe gunshow loopholeâ€ because it was the intent of the Brady law to not cover private sales. In the case of the California Assault Weapons Ban, it was absolutely the intent of the drafters to make it so that California residents could never own AR and AK pattern rifles, unless they already owned it and it was to die with them (particularly with SB-23). But gun owners and manufacturers looked at the language of the bill and found new ways to legally own and sell guns that were intended to be banned (bullet buttons, monster grips, ridiculously shaped stocks, etcâ€¦).
Of course by â€œexploitingâ€ this loophole, it is only pointing to how arbitrary these laws are. These are supposed to be death machines that warrant imprisoning their owners, yet they canâ€™t come up with a more conclusive definition for its killing power than the shape of its grip??? The only way to close â€œThe AR-15 loopholeâ€ is to ban all semi-automatics, and that is an admission that they have been using bogus â€œassault weaponâ€ arguments for the past 20 years.
Where’s the phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range?
