    Detachable magazines[citation needed]

    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]

    Thank you for proving my point. "Assault wrapon" is not a kind of firearm, it' just a non-functional cosmetic appearance, no different than banning cameo by labeling it "assault clothes".

After the prosecutions are completed then let's talk about disarming other dangerous politicians. Leave the citizens alone.
    Yea ive heard you say this before and still waiting on some background source or any information you have, but have yet to back up this claim up at all.

    here is but one example

    Do you believe I will continue to play your silly game?
    and you still keep playing as evidence by your latest post. So you have answered your own question strongly in the affirmative.

    Most of the free world in modern democracies have more strict restrictions on firearms than us... Are they tyrants too?

    We have a right to self defense that is independent of the state. The state has no business making it impossible for me to defend myself during a waiting period nor does it have the moral right to make it very difficult for me to do so.
    So you think it should be very easy to purchase a firearm? Just as easy as shopping for groceries at Walmart?

    have come out of the clouds. IN reality, Obumble, Biden and their toadies were planning on trying to ban guns all along once Obumble won the election
    Any proof of this?

    The Constitution says nothing about assault weapons and high capacity magazines. We the people banned them before, and we can again.

    Glad to hear their ban will not be a hardship for you!

    Why do liberals and socialists always use evolution as part of their argument? What is worse is they always use it for state control of something. What makes you think that is evolution? It would seem to me your dream is not to evolve but to become unevolved.
