Kits or stock sets that add a pistol grip to guns like a mini 14, ruger 10/22, SKS, and many others would be defined as assault weapons
Those are illegal in non-class 3 states, they have to be made pre-1986 and must be registered as a machine-gun and cost upwards to $4,000 dollars. They are extremely rare and no one would just hand them over.
And it's further defining what an "Assault Weapon" is. Not even our wacky looking thumbhole stocks are safe.
That's not how pistols work guys.
SKS with detachable magazine
time to go shopping
My point is that the definitions are still retarded, and this could potentially set precedents, IE: they could become the federal definition at some point.
What the fuck
Truly, we are living in the end times.
FORGIVE ME RON PAUL
don't worry FP, obama isn't taking all of your guns! stop whining!
you'll still have bolt actions and single-shot (until we get rid of those too, LOL)
Why don't they do a handgun turn-in act, handguns are used to commit the vast majority of firearm homicides. .22 lr handguns to be specific since IIRC they are accountable for the further majority of handgun murders.
This "assault weapon" shit is becoming beyond inane and I'd seriously be surprised if this measure even prevented a single firearm homicide from happening.
I find it somewhat funny they didn't ban semi auto rifles when they banned full auto. Semi auto rifles can be just as deadly, if not more deadly than a full auto rifle. With a semi auto if you're fast enough with only ten bullets you could hit ten targets, With a full auto, most of the time you're going to do half that with even 20 if you use the full auto setting. On the range i was able to hit 9/10 with a semi auto, and 6/15 with a full auto with a 30 round mag. the recoil plus the recovery time was higher. leading to miss three outta 4 shots. I'm not a gun owner, but i've been to rifle ranges considering how hard it is to get a rifle/handgun in CA. the range owners are mostly police in my area, so they have access to m16 variants and put them on the rifle range for gun safety.
ITT: The gun owning userbase of Facepunch squabbles over guns and their rights like wimps.
Edited: Yay! I kicked the hornets nest this time!

You should return the favor bud.
There's no fucking point you need to own a gun that shoots armour piercing rounds.
They fill the wording with so much incomprehensible nonsense that they can allow for loopholes.
Just what the fuck defines an "assault weapon?" I'm sure a battering-ram or a raised truck can be turned-in for $2000 tax break as well?
Obama has wording too along the lines of "Americans have to push to enforce gun control." Putting words in our mouths and he mentions Sandy Hook as well. Dude, leave the guns alone imo
I'm sure you don't need all those old computer parts, which consume electricity causing pollution and contain dangerous chemicals, but I'm sure you don't want to be told to hand in your collection of old computer shit just because it contains mercury or some shit, or because one time a hacker used that model of computer to breach a government database, and then told that you don't need them so you shouldn't complain.
and why would you be ok with handguns (Which the vast majority of crimes are committed with) and not ok with assault rifles, which are used in basically no crimes?
