Real assault rifles are taxed $200 every time they are transferred, have to be registered with BATF, and have to have been made before 1986. The first attempt to confiscate assault rifles occurred when King George III tried to confiscate military style firearms equipped with bayonet lugs that had greater firepower than rifles. This was on April 19, 1776. Meanwhile, I have 3 .45 autos, 2 Mini 14s, and an M-1 Garand just in case my house is attacked by a duck. What part of the word "arms" does Emanuel fail to understand? Viva la revolucion.
