Oh BTW Haymarket, if i were intending to assassinate a politician after a war against guns was launched as opposed to defending myself against gangs, active shooters or looters I would use a far different weapon. an "assault weapon" whatever that may be is not ideal for taking out a politician who is surrounded by armed guards. For that, the best weapon is say a Lazzeroni War Bird or a Barrett 50 or an AI 300 Mag. stuff that you can make head shots at long distances with or stuff that is so powerful that it will blow right through body armor 800M out.
those weapons have almost no self defense use against criminals.
In case your are interested (since I doubt you have ever heard of a Lazzeroni) I have included a link of some of their current rifles. they cost a lot of money and take months to get
