What's an Assault Weapon?

This isn't about banning "assault weapons", this is about disarming the American public and rendering the 2nd Amendment null and void. This is about total control of the populace, just like it was in Germany in the 1930's when Adolf Hitler confiscated publicly held firearms. Anybody that pushes this garbage is a traitor to the Constitution. That includes Obama, Feinstein, Schumer, Biden, and on down the list.

Last week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced a new, supposedly improved version of the federal "assault weapon" ban that expired in 2004. But like that earlier law, which the California Democrat also sponsored, Feinstein's bill prohibits the manufacture and sale of guns based on characteristics that have little or nothing to do with the danger they pose.

Although arbitrary distinctions are a defining characteristic of "assault weapon" bans, recent polls indicate that most Americans support them. New survey data suggest one possible explanation: Most Americans don't know what "assault weapons" are.

Feinstein's bill would ban "157 dangerous military-style assault weapons" by name,...
