Why do the gun lovers need auto assault rifles?

Gun lovers: Nobody wants your shotgun, deer rifle or personal handgun. Nobody wants to take away your right to defend your home.

But really: For what do you need semi-automatic assault rifles with high-capacity magazines? A crazed army of North Korean paratroopers? Zombies? Aliens?

If so, run, don’t walk, to your nearest psychiatrist and get some help (before your disenchanted teenage son borrows your arsenal to take out the Oly High fifth-period lunch group).
