In the same way that the Union Leader decided to change the common language concerning past and current, The Laconia Daily Sun tried to deflect from their bad wordsmithing by blaming it on others.  To wit, this article with “assault rifle” (reformatted, emphasis mine): Judge finds probable cause in felony weapons possession case By Michael Mortensen …
