    "Attributes in assault weapon definitions

    Attributes previously defined in assault weapon legislation and their purposes
    Detachable magazines[citation needed]
    Collapsible stocks allow for adjustment to the length of pull.
    Folding stocks[citation needed]
    Pistol grips (on rifles) reduce the angle (and thus rotational strain) of the wrist.
    Bayonet mounts are often on civilian firearms due to the same parts being used on both government and civilian rifles [4]
    Flash suppressors shield the shooter's vision, as well as those beside or behind the user.[10]
    Threaded barrels mount flash suppressors, compensators and muzzle brakes both used for aiding recoil management.
    Barrel mounted grenade launcher mounts are concentric rings around the muzzle.[citation needed]
    A barrel shroud is a tube around the barrel designed to limit transfer of heat from the barrel to the supporting hand, or to protect a shooter from being burned by accidental contact.[11]
    Magazines greater than 10 rounds [4]
    Semi-automatic, functionality meaning that they can eject spent shell casings and chamber the next round without additional human action, but (as opposed to automatic firearms) only one round is fired per pull of the trigger.[5]

    So it is OK with you for American women to carry guns in order to kill those who would harm them?

    I can't justify the value of a semi-automatic for personal self defense with so many innocent people killed in this country with semi-automatic weapons with high capacity mags. And its looking like more and more people are feeling that way too.

    Sure, just not semi-automatics with high capacity magazines.

    Serious. If a gang makes a living off of home invasion and robbery they dont go in with just 1 person. It could be 2,3, hell maybe even more than 5. If all of them are armed then a full auto sure would come in handy for defense.
