Type of rifle

.223 assault rifle needs to be changed to armalite rifle. Assault rifles require a class 3 license/stamp and also have select fire. His gun was a semi automatic .223 rifle. He did not have a assault rifle, it was an armalite rifle.

Can you provide sourcing for this? Web links? We can provide an additional {{correction}} on this point if we have solid documentation. (As I recall, I investigated this question after the previous comment, below, but the definition of "assault rifle" appeared to be ambiguous with different definitions floating around.) We cannot, of course, simply change the wording if it's wrong, because that would be rewriting history to cover up a publication error, and we don't do that.

There's no such thing as an "assault rifle" as all rifles can be used for 'assault'

It's all wrong

Too vague to act on. Specifically, what is wrong? (If you're thinking of the number 28, btw, no it's not wrong.)

Contradictions and factual errors seem evident compared with wikipedia article and other sources. Presented as recent/updated/breaking. Seems old and erroneous instead.

And yet, you are apparently unable to name a single thing that is supposedly a factual error, let alone attempt to correct it (the article being less than 24 hours hold is not yet under the archive policy, for another three hours or so as I write this).

Pi zero (talk)17:14, 15 December 2012

I do agree this is no longer breaking (something else you are apparently able to complain about but not able to attempt to remedy).
