Assault Weapons

There seems to be a lot of confusion and disagreement about the definition of an assualt weapon, either a rifle or handgun. While states have used the cosmetics of the weapon, some have a better definition which would be by the action of the weapon, namely how it fires the rounds.

To me, I agree with this definition, to include the capabilities of a basic gun, meaning the trigger action, the types of ammution and the speed of the round; options for the weapons, meaning flash suppression, scopes, and types of stocks, etc.; the options for the ammunition, meaning high capacity magazines/clips; and the ability to adapt or modify the weapon for greater capacity.

In short, the more the inclusion of weaspons, the better. This includes a lot of civilian style versions of military and law enforcement weapons, a lot of civilian style military and law enforcement handgun. All of these weapons aren't designed for personal safety, hunting, sport shooting, etc., but to kill people, which is the criteria of the reason for the weapon in the first place.

Yes, I'm extreme but it's time the pendulum swung to the opposite side for awhile and we exercise common sense than denying the reality of what weapons do to our country, our people, and now our children. What more reason do you need?
