Any semi-automatic rifle (fires one shot every time the trigger is pulled)
A semi-automatic rifle with two or more of the features in the Brady bill.(see OP post)
A rifle that will keep firing bullets as long as you hold down the trigger.
A rifle that will fire 3 bullet every time you squeeze the trigger.
I do not know.

Sorry I misread the post.
I don't need an assault rifle but I will buy two to protest the stupid attack on same.
One I will give as a fund raising auction item to support our local shelter for battered women.
The guns from Goldeneye on the N64 that give you a little bit of zoom but not too much.
The real question should be what are Assault Weapons, as that is what is being used in most of the massacres in the US and Mexico.
Gun owners have said for years there is nothing except cosmetic differences between assault weapons and other guns legally available, until the country decides that they should maybe not sell the gun of choice by massacre lovers everywhere. The gun fanatics now say that taking away these particular guns (with only cosmetic differences they have maintained) is some kind of hardship.
Anyone else see the irony in their new position?

bullets kill people.
I read somewhere that the type of bullets that Adam used on the children were designed to inflict the most internal damage.
The children and teachers were shot multiple times.
The teacher that was in the next classroom describes what she heard as a rapid fire pop, pop, pop, pop.....that didn't last very long. Does anyone know how many 30 round clips he used? It was a quite few.
Semi-automatics seem to be the choice of mass murderers. We don't know what other guns his mother may have had, but apparently she was a gun collector or enthusiast so Adam must have had an array to chose from, but he chose a semi-automatic....probably because it would hold 30 round clips and take out the most people and inflict the most internal damage.
Banning the type of bullets meant to inflict massive internal damage would be a good place to start.
Any gun that was designed for military use really has no business outside of a war zone, imo.
Is it true, the military was the first to use "assault weapon" If so, then why is calling military style guns "assault weapons" such a problem for gun rightys?

1. Bullets: hollow points are designed to do more damage yes... but also to not overpenetrate and endanger persons beyond the target, which is why cops use them.
2. Proper "assault weapons" are capable of autofire. Military-styled semiautomatics are not properly called "assault weapons".... they just LOOK like military rifles and have a few common characteristics... except where some purely civilian rifles have been misnamed "assault" because of a few similar characteristics. It is a MUCH abused term, that is why we roll our eyes over it.

I don't consider using the correct verbage to be more important than the kind of damage a particular gun can do. Most us without gun knowledge get our information from the media. But when we talk to gun righty's about guns we get nothing but insults and ridicule for not using correct terms. It creates a barrier to communication, which I kinda think is intentional to divert the issue away from real concerns that people have with guns.
