Don’t call it an assault weapon. Don’t call it a military weapon. That was the advice from an article published in November 2016 in Blue Line, Canada’s national independent police magazine. At the time, police across Canada were adopting what they call “patrol carbines” but what most people would call an AR-15, the rifle Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants you to be deathly afraid of as he bans it from civilian use.
