"Assault" is in quotes because the important part is what comes out the end, not the way it looks.
"a rerepresentation of the opposition's argument created for the sake of more easily dismissing it" "purposeful misrepresentation of an argument in order to strike it down" Explain how that is any different.

A strawman argument is a rerepresentation of the opposition's argument created for the sake of more easily dismissing it. It's not in any way a strawman argument because none of my claims have anything to do with what you're talking about. Meanwhile, you're turning what I'M saying into "You're saying 'automatic', when it's SEMI automatic". THAT'S A F**KING STRAWMAN, because automatic actions and automatic fire are NOT THE SAME THING. Also, way to talk about fallacies, WHEN YOUR ENTIRE CLAIM IS BASED ON EQUIVOCATION! You know, the fallacy of attributing a phrase to a specific definition, when there are other definitions applicable? The term "automatic weapon" can refer to both weapons that fire continuously AND weapons with an automatic action, which solely applies to how a gun is loaded.

Also, YOUR pages support my position. "Although both "semi automatic" and "fully automatic" firearms are "automatic" in the technical sense that the firearm automatically cycles between rounds with each trigger pull, the terms "automatic weapon" and "automatic firearm" are conventionally reserved by firearm enthusiasts to describe fully automatic firearms." LITERALLY THE ENTIRE POINT

Good one... using the entries that have absolutely no relevance to what I am talking about. Automatic and Semi Automatic weapons have the EXACT SAME ACTION.

Name a difference between a semi-automatic action and an automatic action. You can't. I can: The former DOES NOT EXIST. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_(firearms)#Automatic_actions See? No such thing as a semi-automatic ACTION.
