Subject: RE: BS: Gun ban - yep already
Mick, I'm not a hunter (recently), and I know that a person can hunt with a military weapon (I remember hunting deer in the Korean DMZ with an M-14), but I have trouble visualizing a hunting weapon that includes two of these criteria:

B) a semiautomatic rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least 2 of--

      (i) a folding or telescoping stock;

      (ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;

    (iii) a bayonet mount;

      (iv) a flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor; and

      ï¿½(v) a grenade launcher;

That is what an "assault weapon" is, according to the bill under discussion - there are separate, but similar, definitions for automatic pistols and shotguns.
