Not an expert on the subject, but in general:
The definition of an "assault weapon" is complex, including cosmetic features. However, the general public tends to define any semi-automatic firearms as "assault weapons", semi-automatic meaning that they can eject spent shell casings and chamber the next round without additional human action, but (as opposed to automatic firearms) only one round is fired per pull of the trigger.
There is no federal ban of "assault weapons", although some states have their own bans.
Shouldn't those kind of weapons be banned in every state?

I kinda knew what they were, by the way. Just never understood why they were part of the second amendment if legal anywhere.

Also, I just wanted to let you know that, in Zimmerman's case, I'm willing to accept what the courts decide.

I'm just glad he's under arrest until the court decides his innocence or not.

get educated and stop talking like a fool.
"The new perspective came from the original police report which noted Zimmerman had a bloody nose, gashes on the back of his head and grass stains on his back. Obviously there had been some sort of fight. Zimmerman had told police that as he moved to go back to his vehicle the teenager asked him if he "had a problem." When he answered, "No" and reached for his phone to make another 9-1-1 call, Zimmerman said Martin declared, "Well, you do now," and knocked him to the ground. The young man then bashed his head into the concrete several times and in the scuffle, Zimmerman claimed, he shot Martin in self-defense. An eyewitness backs up this account saying the person in the red shirt (Zimmerman) was being beaten by the person in the dark hoodie (Martin). ABC News then broadcast grainy video of Zimmerman arriving at the police station in handcuffs and none of the injuries listed on the report were visible. Days later, ABC enhanced the footage and apparent head wounds were suddenly visible. "
What will the dead thug testify to?
It's not up to you or me to decide. It's up to the jury.

Whatever the outcome, we'll both have to accept it.

The "boy" was an adult in physical stature, larger, stronger, and more agile than his victim.
If you were attacked by someone like the "boy" who was intent on causing you physical harm, a gun would be your only defense. The idea of "finding strength from somewhere" is as logical as Akin's beliefs on rape and pregnancy. Or do you believe that religious BS as well?
All that said, community vigilante groups patrolling the streets are not a good idea. Wait until the "boy" enters your house, then shoot him.
That's why I said I'm going to accept whatever the court decides.

Homer glad you are will to accept what the court decides, we don't want Carol going off on a shooting rampage. He should be free on bail, why are they holding a potentially innocent man in jail? You do love your big government.

No, I just love common sense. Something we lost somewhere along the way.

Can you imagine early Americans mowing down people with assault rifles - even if they had them back then?

Those weapons are meant for wartime. What other purpose could they possibly serve in the hands of private citizens?

Let's just legalize rocket launchers.

Government is supposed to exercise common sense - which big government doesn't. It can't micromanage common sense.
