assuming one cannot have a ak/ar type “assault rifle” (stupid, ill defined term but let’s use it here for the sake of laziness), what are decent non tactical alternatives, i.e. a rifle that is handy, fast firing, rugged, but still politically correct in peoples republic states and canada. ruger pcc? lever action? ruger mini 14? lets leave aside ex military issue rifles, i.e. no sks or m1 carbine, and bolt actions. has anyone here, likely in the n.e. or california, made this decision?
