Q. What is the difference between semi-automatic hunting rifles and semi-automatic, military-style assault weapons?
A. Sporting rifles and assault weapons are two distinct classes of firearms. While semi-automatic hunting rifles are designed to be fired from the shoulder and depend upon the accuracy of a precisely aimed projectile to kill an animal, semi-automatic assault weapons are designed to kill as many people quickly, as would be needed in combat.
Opponents of banning assault weapons argue that these military-style weapons only “look” scary. Assault weapons look scary and are scary because they are equipped with combat hardware. Combat features like high-capacity ammunition magazines, pistol grips, folding stocks, and bayonets, which are not found on sporting guns, are designed specifically to facilitate the killing of human beings in battle.

Ausfag /fit/izen here.
I've finished my degree and I am about to start training to be in the Police.
I have never seen a gun that was not hanging off a copper's belt, so I have no idea about guns apart from what Battlefield 3 has taught me.
I am very left-eye dominant, and by that I mean my right eye is pretty much fucked. Do I have to learn to shoot left handed or can I shoot with my preferred right hand?
I will be undergoing extensive firearms training, involving sidearms, rifles, automatic weapons and grenade launchers.
