    It has been defined for some time and easy to find on the web!

    Criteria of an assault weaponAssault weapon (semi-automatic) refers primarily (but not exclusively) to firearms that possess the features of an assault rifle (which are fully-automatic). Semi-automatic firearms, when fired, automatically extract the spent cartridge casing and load the next cartridge into the chamber, ready to fire again; they do not fire automatically like a machine gun; rather, only one round is fired with each trigger pull.
    In the former U.S. law, the legal term assault weapon included certain specific semi-automatic firearm models by name (e.g., Colt AR-15, TEC-9, non select-fire AK-47s produced by three manufacturers, and Uzis) and other semi-automatic firearms because they possess a minimum set of features from the following list of features:

    So, if I'm reading this correctly my Browning BAR .270 semi automatic is considered an assault rifle?

    No. The BAR270 only holds 5 or 6 rounds.

    Susie, right now the "AR rifle" is the fasted growing firearms in terms of sales today, if you read Outdoor Life, Field&Stream or any of the hunting magizines today almost without fail they will be talking about them as hunting guns. In my local community about 80% of the coyote hunters are using guns bases off of the AR platform, these are the same rifles that Romney defines as assault rifles and banned in Mass, along with regulations of adding fees to the purchase of every new gun purchased.

    wants you to be required to have that same license to mount a scope on that harmless recreational rif of yours.

    this is his reasonable regulation he talks about when he states

    I believe in the second amendment, as long as it includes reasonable regulation.

    The man took an OATH

    Gooser I agree with you on Obama but for the life of me can't see why the Republican party would run a candidate with Romney's stance on gun control. Between the two of them Romney I believe is probably the lessor of two evils only because the Republican party may be able to reign him in as seen in his recent flip-flopping of beliefs.

    I didn't change a freaking thing, I just posted more of it. Don't complain when you are too lazy to look it up for yourself!
