Definition of Assault Weapons
http://civilliberty.about.com/od/guncontrol/a/Assault-Weapons.htm


excerpt:
Fully-automatic weapons have been prohibited in the U.S. since the National Firearms Act of 1934. Fully-automatic firearms can spray fire with a single pull of the trigger, while semi-automatic guns fire one shot with each pull of the trigger.

excerpt:
Shortly after the law was allowed to sunset in 2004, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study of the AWB, in which it found “insufficient evidence to determine the effectiveness” of the law for reducing crime rates.

You can buy the parts to convert semi automatic weapons to fully-automatic firearms.

The Assault Weapons Ban accomplished nothing but making the Democrats feel good about themselves because they hate all guns and would like to see them all banned.
It didn't affect crime one iota in any regard whatsoever.
But that doesn't matter to Democrats.
To them, it's the thought that counts.
I wish they could just wear another ribbon or something to make themselves feel better and think they're accomplishing something like they usually do.
Instead of taking away our Constitutional Freedoms and Liberties guaranteed by The Bill of Rights.
