why anyone wants an "assault rifle"

I carry a pistol for defense. Why a pistol? Is it because it is the best tool for the job? Not at all. It is because it is convenient enough that it can be carried at all times, both comfortably, and without sending the hoplophobes fleeing in terror. The assault rifle is far superior from an accuracy standpoint (important for a variety of obvious reasons) as well as its ability to inflict lethal damage.
The only time shotguns are the better weapon is in a situation where both you and your target are moving quickly. In every other circumstance a decent rifle is the better weapon.
And of course the final piece of the puzzle. The rifle is much more capable of being a proactive weapon than either a pistol or a shotgun, which is why we're having any of these discussions in the first place.
