Feinstein Assault Weapons Ban Covers Rifles, Pistols and Shotguns

Correct! And the lack of rigorous definition of "assault weapon" is both conspicuous and deliberate. The term exists solely to whip up public fury (falsely). It is a deceptive term at heart and is a symptom of the leftist propaganda state.

The New Year is just around the corner and although the Senate still hasn't made a fiscal cliff deal, Senator Diane Feinstein already has parts of new gun control legislation ready to go. Two Sunday's ago on NBC's Meet the Press, Feinstein talked about giving President Obama a bill he can "lead on" and used the term assault weapon loosely.

Feinstein has posted a summary of what the legislation will cover, which inculdes a ban on semi-automatic handguns and shotguns in addition to rifles. The legislation also requires registration...
