Assault Rifle is an arbitrary term, based off of the name for the first one made. The Sturmgewehr was the first one made and it's name was translated into "Assault Rifle" but it was a Rifle made to aid in rapid attacks because it was a rifle that could shoot like a machine gun and a submachine gun.
It's like if we all called submachine guns "Machine Pistols" because the first one made was called the Maschinenpistole.
They're rifles, if they shoot on automatic then they're an Automatic Rifle and if they're Semi-Auto they're Semi-Automatic rifles. Nobody needs an automatic rifle, stick with the civilian versions like the AR-15.

It's the actual reason for why they're not "assault rifles" as every rifle can be made and used to assault. Technically they're automatic rifles, colloquialism for an automatic rifle is "assault rifle".
I bet you think that the AR in AR-15 stands for "Assault Rifle", don't you?

No, I do not think that. As you said its a colloquialism. It's like insisting that a hearth attack is actually a myocardial infarction. Neither is really incorrect and both can be used. Honestly it just makes you sound like a tool. I don't know if theres an equivalent term to weeaboo for people who like guns, but that's what comes to mind. Not to mention I first brought up the term 'assault rifle' due to the ak47, which makes your attempt at partonizing me look pretty autisitic.

Not really autistic as the AR-15 is a civilian automatic rifle used by some police departments and uses the same type of firing mechanism as an AK-47. Seeing as though I was mocking your ineptitude at making a distinction between "assault rifle" and "automatic rifle" I chose the AR-15 as an example because a lot of people of your similar mindset will assume that the AR stands for "Assault Rifle" and use it to service their own brand of social justice.
As far as colloquialisms go there is a difference for certain colloquialisms and certain technical terms. For example "heart attack". You see when a person has a "heart attack" they are having a myocardial infarction(nice job trying to seem smart here) but there are different types of "heart attacks". When you say "heart attack" most people will assume you mean that the heart has stopped but that's cardiac arrest and not the actual heart attack. The actual heart attack can be due to several different kinds of blockages ranging from clots to emboli, even a sudden change in blood pressure. The source of the heart attack, the location of the heart attack, and how it occurred are actually very major specifics in providing accurate care and actually change the term used when referring to the actual situation. Then you have other people who think that strokes are heart attacks and that screws up all sorts of things.
By the way it's spelled "patronizing", most web browsers have a built-in spellchecker.
