    I am not the one afraid of an assault weapons ban. I would welcome it. There is no reason for me to leave as the majority will prevail.

    I'm not afraid of ban, just think it's stupid and recognize those pushing for one are afraid of certian guns.

    By definition they are for the most part. Weapons are used to assault people. Assault weapons is kind of a moronic term when you think about it. Weapons by definition are tools used to assault people and their property. So assault weapons more assaulting? Maybe better at assaulting. Assaultier? Is that even a word? FIIK.

    Which requires specific, non nebulous language. Care to provide?

    Re: Define assault weapon

    When you bring bear spray, bleach, acid, baseball bat to a rally you've brought assault weapons. If your wearing a mask or any forms of body armor and have such weapons you are there to commit assault.

    An assault weapon is totally a function of the mind set of those in possession.

    Perhaps, because it disappeared on its own and the make-up of the SCOTUS was deemed too risky.

    So now you've eliminated even muzzleloader rifles


    You already eliminated all handguns a with your 12 shots/minute rule.
    Awww...well that's too bad. Thoughts and prayers. The general point stands. Limit the number of rounds that can be fired to a reasonable amount. Limit the effectiveness at a distance. Make it hard to sneak them into places.
    Obstruction of Justice also applies to overt coercion of court or government officials via the means of threats or actual physical harm and also applying to deliberate sedition against a court official to undermine the appearance of legitimate authority.

    =haymarket;1070492771]Are there not experts in this matter who will write the definitions into the bill?
    Oh I'm sure there are experts that would just love to. California Sen. Kevin De Leon for one. Of ghost gun fame. In other words politicians that don't know the muzzle from the butt plate.
