MexicoMembers of a small community in Mexico defend their town against gang criminals with guns.

Brian Witte/Associated Press"Assault weapon" is among the most contentious phrases in discussions on gun control. There's not a universal definition of what an assault weapon is, which is part of the reason this subject tends to antagonize the gun lobby or gun advocates. In short, gun enthusiasts typically say a firearm should be called an assault rifle only if it's capable of fully automatic fire — and they tend to reject the term assault weapon altogether. "None of the so-called assault rifles legally owned by US civilians are assault rifles as the term is used in military contexts," Gary Kleck, a criminal-justice professor emeritus at Florida State University, told PolitiFact. Kleck added: "Assault rifles used by members of the military can all fire full automatic, like machine guns, as well as one shot at a time, whereas none of the so-called assault rifles legally owned by US civilians can fire full automatic."

This Saturday, on October 15, 2022, the movement is marking the fifth anniversary of the hashtag going viral. "What they're saying really is, 'I want to continue to behave the way I've been behaving,'" Burke told us in response. She doesn't want the movement to result in work environments that are tense for anyone. Burke said she wants to see more open dialogue in workplaces, and cited Accenture as a company that has done it well. Going forward, Burke wants "Me Too" to not be a divisive issue, but a common-sense one — where it stands for supporting survivors of violence and creating inclusive workplaces.
The hashtag went viral in 2017, but Tarana Burke first started the movement back in 2006. Tarana Burke: My name is Tarana Burke, and I'm the founder of the #MeToo movement. #MeToo is a movement that was founded in 2006 to support survivors of sexual violence, in particular black and brown girls, who were in the program that we were running. We were encountering numbers of girls who were disclosing sexual violence. And sometimes they didn't even know that it was sexual violence.
"Ukraine doesn't have nuclear weapons, so the risk of nuclear war in this scenario is if, somehow, the conflict escalated to pull in NATO countries or the US," she added. "That raises the risk of nuclear confrontation because some of the NATO countries have nuclear weapons." The US, for instance, has about 5,500 nuclear weapons, while Russia has about 6,000, according to the Federation of American Scientists. When a nuclear bomb strikes, it sets off a flash of light, a giant orange fireball, and building-toppling shockwaves. The fallout of a nuclear bomb also depends on how a country chooses to detonate it.
