Depending on the locality and type of firearm, the cutoff between a 'normal' capacity and 'high' capacity magazine was 3, 7, 10, 12, 15, or 20 rounds. The now defunct federal ban set the limit at 10 rounds.


    During the period when the AWB was in effect, it was illegal to manufacture any firearm that met the law's flowchart of an assault weapon or large capacity ammunition feeding device, except for export or for sale to a government or law enforcement agency. The law also banned possession of illegally imported or manufactured firearms, but did not ban possession or sale of pre-existing 'assault weapons' or previously factory standard magazines that were legally redefined as large capacity ammunition feeding devices. This provision for pre-ban firearms created higher prices in the market for such items, which still exist due to several states adopting their own assault weapons ban."

    good thing you are here to cite information that I already knew.

    my AR variant has no flash suppressor or bayonet lug... and it had a lil shorty mag...I had 25 or 30 30rnd mags at home just waitin' on a rifle
    the flash suppressor and bayonet lug are things I didn't care about.... they don't matter.
    the rifle functioned perfectly.. just like the banned models.

    did you see DIFI have a cow over that--a few years into the ban someone pointed out that colt et al were selling the same rifles sans the cosmetics and she whined they were NOT COMPLYING WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW. and someone pointed out that they told her the law was stupid and had no merit and of course they were going to keep selling stuff

    what a silly self important turd she is

    she's like 99% of gun grabbers... a dolt... and totally befuddled when their bull**** doesn't work out the way it did in their dreams.

    the AWB ban that was ready to go in 2009 ( never introduced though) addressed alot of that stuff that was easily bypassed in the first ban.... as well as giving the AG wide discretion to ban any firearm that is in use by the military or law enforcement ( can you imagine what Holder would do with that power?.. sheesh)

    I hope that's the one the doltess introduces....

    "Not complying with the spirit of the law" huh? That's rich coming from that little crook who has no problem not complying with the law of the land(Shall not be infringed) or even complying with laws prohibiting fraud and malfeasance(her husbands defense deals with no benefit to the military). I swear that C-word needs to be involuntarily committed.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I do not know.

    Semi-automatic rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A semi-automatic rifle is a type of rifle that fires a single bullet each time the trigger is pulled, automatically ejects the spent cartridge, chambers a fresh cartridge from its magazine, and is immediately ready to fire another shot.

    Automatic rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    An automatic rifle is a type of magazine-fed rifle that uses either its recoil or a portion of the gas propelling the projectile to operate its action. And, to remove the spent cartridge case, cock the rifle, load a new cartridge and fire again repeatedly, as long as the trigger is held down or until the magazine is exhausted.

    Assault weapon defined by the 1994 assault weapons ban.

    Semi-automatic rifles able to accept detachable magazines and two or more of the following:

    -Folding or telescoping stock
    Attachment 67139437


    -Pistol grip

    Attachment 67139432

    -Bayonet mount
    Attachment 67139433


    -Flash suppressor, or threaded barrel designed to accommodate one
    Attachment 67139435

    -Grenade launcher(more precisely, a muzzle device that enables launching or firing rifle grenades, though this applies only to muzzle mounted grenade launchers and not those mounted externally).
    Attachment 67139436
    What strange objects are these! We are so ill informed when it comes to these that you call "A salt weapons." Our salt weapons are smaller and we use them for dinner to make foods more salty.

    If those were the only type of handguns available, then you could make the argument that people's "rights" to handguns were being infringed.

    As Conservative Justice Scalia noted in that decision: "Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited," that it is "not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever"
