    does this make my favorite rifle the 1860 henry, and the 1866 yellow boy, assault rifles, since they carry more than 10 rounds?

    if you do a search you will find before Sugarmann sent his paper to the MSM, the term "semi auto" or "assault weapon" is almost non existent. Within a year of his paper, the terms were used THOUSANDS of times

    Your question is out of date. Assault weapons are already banned. They have been since 1986. That's when the Federal Government banned automatic weapons. The new AK-47s and the AR-15s that you can buy in a gun shop are limited to semiautomatic only. Therefore, according to our own military's definition (and that of the former Soviet Union), they are NOT assault weapons. There's no such thing as an assault rifle that is semiautomatic only. The definition "assault" meant a soldier assaults an enemy's position by spraying bullets.

    In '86 your compromise is exactly what they did. Those who already owned assault rifles got to keep them. A lot of good that did. Now they're back demanding a ban on "assault" weapons, which are already banned, but they're taking it further. The gun hating crowd won't stop until the only thing you're allowed to own is a BB gun.

    Repeal the 1986 Hughes Amendment to the Firearms Owners' Protection Act so responsible citizens can own modern assault rifles and machine guns.



    In compromise, we will submit to formal training and background checks. Deal?

    from my cold, dead hands...

    That's the beginning and the end of the compromise.

    No they didn't. You can still legally own machine guns.
