    dictionary definitions aren't open to interpretation, if you actually read the definition you posted you would realize that I'm correct.

    if the definition of applied as loosely as you are trying to apply it then everyone who changed a tire on their car would be an auto manufacturer.

    changing parts isn't manufacture

    the definition you posted didn't include altering something by changing parts.

    but I guess since I put a better battery in my truck it's now an assault vehicle and I'm an auto manufacturer.

    This is really why the whole "assault weapons ban" confuses me. If someone walks in Walmart with an M4 I will notice it right away and will take cover. If they come in with a handgun I will not know it until they choose to pull it out.

    It is harder to conceal which in my mind makes it less dangerous. The fact that semi automatic rifles contribute to significantly less deaths than handguns confirms this.

    Functional does not mean "makes it more dangerous"

    You are still failing.

    Cosmetic doesn't mean mean useless either.
    "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"

    Not all assault weapons are semiautomatic rifles with with detachable magazines and two or cosmetic features described in the brady assault weapons ban. This also includes pistols with detachable magazines that has two or more of the following features-

    Federal Assault Weapons Ban - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Magazine that attaches outside the pistol grip
    Threaded barrel to attach barrel extender, flash suppressor, handgrip, or suppressor
    Barrel shroud that can be used as a hand-hold
    Unloaded weight of 50 oz (1.4 kg) or more
    A semi-automatic version of a fully automatic firearm.

    Then you use a far more narrow definition of more or less dangerous than the average person does.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
