Just thinking; We all know the erroneous definition of 'assault weapon' that was made part of the AWB law. We all know that an assault rifle must be capable of automatic (machine gun) fire to be considered such. We all know that our semi-automatic rifles are not 'assault weapons'. So, when that law expired, did not the government definition of 'assault weapon' also expire? So now, when BATFE or anyone else speaks of 'assault weapons' must we not assume they refer to NFA-controlled machine guns and not semi-automatic (self-loading) rifles, carbines, shotguns and pistols?

I suppose you are correct: the federal definition of a "Semi Automatick Assault Weapon" no longer exists.

The AWB was a hoax along with the term "assault weapon". Just like the term "High-capacity" it is called standard capacity my anti-fun-gun-tree hugging-dolphin-lovin' congressmen.

Homeland defense rifles...I like it. Sounds like something George W himself might say.
