    No reason they should be


    Thad assault weapons ban was on the basis of cosmetic features. You could have two guns identical in caliber, range, accuracy, rate of fire, and on was legal and one not. It made no sense.
    There is a link for questioning Politifact. You can continue your quibbling with them. Meanwhile, the rest of us will take a common-sense non-quibbling approach towards assault weapons.

    Ok, what is an assault weapon, as opposed to a regular semi-automatic rifle, and why do they need more regulation and banning? What is your common-sense approach? (In my experience, "common sense" means "I don't have an explanation and cannot support my claim; but I'm convinced I'm correct an am not open to considering alternatives.)
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Banning assault weapons is pointless. 30 -06 is far more deadly as are many weapons

    I mean you could just google that. That's all I would do to answer your question, google it and post few results.
    Vaccines, because it's not always about you.

    I don't care what you call them, banning guns is unconstitutional.

    Nothing rational or common sense comes from the left on "assault weapons"/ When someone uses that term to describe modern sporting rifles or common handguns, we know that their proposals will not have any semblance of common sense.

    any one who calls them "assault weapons" is almost guaranteed not to have a common sense approach.

    No it's not. Where'd you get that ridiculous notion? Guns, in their different forms, have been banned in different areas of the United States, at different times in history, since the founding of our country.
