Nope, it does not sound cooler.

You have Bolt Action Rifle, Lever Action Rifle, Semi-Automatic Rifle. Automatic Rifle, Machine Pistol, Sub Machine Gun, Light Machine Gun, Heavy Machine Gun, Single Shot Rifle, Automatic Pistol, Revolver, etc....

"Assault Rifle" was a term coined by Adolf Hitler and the Anti-Gunners.

I disagree that the term "assault rifle" is an anti-gun phrase. "Assault weapon" is an anti-gun phrase since it was solely created by anti-gunners and is only used by anti-gun politicians, ignorant journalists and reporters, and ignorant police officers at scare tactic news conferences (no offense intended 5.56).
