Quote:
Unlike the term assault rifle, however, the term 'assault weapon' has no consistent or specific definition and is, therefore, subject to varying definitions for varying purposes, including definitions that include common non-military firearms.
So, since the people proposing bans can't define what they are talking about banning, not just no, but hell no.

Oh I believe they know exactly what they are defining , and more importantly REDEFINING to include as many as they possible can get away with to ban, and they are also liars when they say they don't want to confiscate existing ones, they just can't say it out right so they write twisted dirty details in the legislation in a backdoor way.

Good analysis!! Since when should a person or entity have the right to determine the means of how an individual protects himself. There are already enough restrictions on purchasing firearms,...they just need to be routinely enforced.
