Sorry to say, you are indeed wrong there are assault weapons, and they are already banned. I have been a soldier (8 years) A police officer (23 years) and a gunsmith (8 years), and have fired several assault weapons. In fact we carried them in Vietnam, an assault weapon differs from the AR-15 in one important way, it lacks the selector switch which allows you to fire either semi auto (the same as the civilian version) or full automatic (thus being banned as a machine gun, and you need a special permission from the fed to own one of those. The same as the AK-47 selector switch illegal, no selector switch not an assault weapon, and thus legal.
