  •  I don't think automatic operation is what defines (0+ / 0-)

    an assault rifle. Their non-defensive function is  to spray bullets pinning down defenders while the attacker advances( 'marching fire'). It applies to any short carbine weapon even with a semi-automatic settling unlike a shoulder supported rifle. It can only be a weapon of war.
    If it looks like an assault rifle and has either automatic or semi-automatic operation, it is one.
