Hunting accidents happen every year and most of the ones you cite involve human stupidity, not anything tougher gun control laws would have prevented.<quoted text>
and the rifles used must have a barrel length of 18 inches.
so a bushmaster assault rifle is not allowed.
but to your main point yep you got a lot of people so restricting assault rifles would have no effect on your army.
A shotgun leaves a much larger hole than a small-caliber, semi-automatic handgun or rifle, which still requires a trigger-squeeze for every bullet fired. So what makes an "assault weapon" that's available to the public exceedingly dangerous?
My understanding is that a pistol grip is the only thing that makes an AR-15 an assault weapon, no grip and it's good to go. Bloomberg's ban is a sneeky way of banning ALL currently legal semi-auto handguns because small clips for them are not on the market.
Seems to be a lot of confusion as to what is an assault weapon. Maybe there should be some agreement before enacting legislation. After all, we want the criminals and homicidal maniacs to comply with the new laws. LOL
