    and nuclear weapons. It's a standard definition recognized worldwide. Rifles, handguns and any type of individual firearm isn't a WMD.  What complete nonsense to try and use the term WMD for firearms.

    However, I think the term Weapons of Mass Murder (WMM) could fit some automatic and semi-automatic rifles and handguns.

    •  It's a very recent "definition." (0+ / 0-)

      Non-existent before 9/11 and its use by the Bush administration.

      You won't find it in dictionaries prior to 2001.

      Does he own the definition? Is it his and his alone?

      I think WMD applies quite well to the AR-15, for example, among other high-capacity weapons.

      You don't. I can live with that and will keep using it the way I do above.
