However, when the show tries to talk about firearms there's always misinformation and a political message. For example, in Season 5 Episode 5 there are numerous references to "assault weapons." There's no such thing as an assault weapon. It's a term that was made up and used by gun control proponents in the 90's.

FMJ is standard ammunition and is not specifically designed to pierce armor. I just wish they'd get their facts straight before airing the episode. I can excuse incorrect terminology, but when you're spreading blatantly false information to make firearms seem scarier it's just ridiculous.
