Petition the House of Commons to ban the term "assault rifle"

Whereas:

The term "assault rifle" was created by anti-gun groups to scare people and demonize firearm owners. The term doesn't focus on the functionality of the firearm but rather scary looking features such as pistol grips or collapsible stocks that can be added to any firearm;

The "assault rifle" ban targets law-abiding firearm owners and does not address the root cause of gun crime, gang violence and gun smuggling;

The term "assault rifle" is inaccurate, unscientific and misleading.

We, the citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to stop using the term "assault rifle" when referring to firearms.
