Technically speaking this clown is not too far off the mark.

If one "holds" a gun in a "certain" manner it does become an assault weapon aka "it is being used to assault someone." (Held by the grip and pointed in the direction of the victim.)

If one were to hold said gun by the barrel, in an unloaded condition and pointing in a safe direction, (say as in packing it up for travel); it would not become an assault weapon.

Now that's a thought process...

This person has the following creds:

Harvard University (A.B.)
University of Neuchâtel (Fulbright)
Yale Law School (J.D.)

Wonder if he's heard of the "Ove Glove?"

No need for barrel shroud or grip with an Ove Glove.

I vote that we award whomever popularized that particular way of holding a gun on TV and in the movies with a lifetime humanitarian achievement award. Think about it: had they actually taught people to aim using the sights, many more people would have been killed and/or wounded by people trying to shoot at them using - and I'm guessing here - the safety as an aiming tool.

I always forget: are they assault weapons when we don't hold our pinkie fingers in the air like the truly genteel, or is it the other way around?

Well, let’s make sure that we have many states that won’t. We are the people!
We were given a directive by the founding fathers, nowhere did it say that we should compromise that which they gave us. We are armed men dang it, we need to act like it.

Exactly. It's called direct civil disobedience. It's called Molon Labe. You can't take away something from free men that never belonged to you to begin with. The very idea of that is hateful and anathema to all things American. It's actually quite simple when you think about it.

N.B. The 2nd Amendment grants no rights. It merely states that the government will not try to infringe on your preexisting inalienable rights.
Repealing or ignoring the 2nd Amendment takes away no rights; it just serves notice that your government has become the type of government that DOES try to take away your preexisting inalienable rights.
The name for such governments is tyrannies.

That is correct and sooner than we think. Here is my thought process on that (think bump stocks). The government says I can legally purchase a semi-automatic firearm and then wants to confiscate it. You allowed me to purchase it and it is mine now. The government will get it when I want them to have it and not before.

I'll add to that by saying "Most Americans care more about money than their Constitutional enumerated rights".

Pretty much. We have tolerated a lot just because of prosperity. Once the economy finally hits the fan and money becomes worthless, it won't be pretty.

The only thing worse than what that guy said is that there are people (idiots) out there who actually believe him.
