The other day wile I was at one of our local gun store I over heard the guy behind the counter answer the phone. It went something like this. "Hello this is ******** Pawn and gun, No sir we don't carry those, We do how ever carry military style sporting rifles." I had to hide the smile on my face.

The begining of the term Assault Rifle.MP44, StG44
In April 1944, Adolf Hitler decreed that the MP 43 be renamed the MP 44. In July 1944, at a meeting of the various army heads about the Eastern Front, when Hitler asked what they needed, a general exclaimed, "More of these new rifles!". This caused some confusion (Hitler's response is reputed to have been "What new rifle?"), but once Hitler was given a chance to test-fire the MP 44, he was impressed and gave it the title Sturmgewehr. Seeing the possibility of a propaganda gain, the rifle was again renamed as the StG 44, to highlight the new class of weapon it represented, translated "Storm (Assault) rifle, model 1944", thereby introducing the term
Any firearm could be used for military purpose. In WWI, American troops used a trench shotgun in the form of the Winchester Model 97. Seems like the term "Assault Rifle" has the evil connotation and used for effect when journalists report the use of a rifle.

I once heard or read someone refer to an AR-15 as a semi automatic modular rifle. Seemed fitting to me as it can have parts added and subtracted at will, hence modular. I like it. You could just abbreviate it to modular rifle, sounds pretty non threatening to me!
I just call them SBR's in jest to the sheep that wet themselves at the mention of one.
