State by state assault rifle laws
Assault rifles are NOT semi-automatic rifles with "military features". (I've got a bolt action Mosin Nagant from WW2 that is more wood than metal. Does that make wooden stocks count as a military feature?) Assault rifles are rifles capable of both semi-automatic and fully automatic fire. The select-fire FN-FAL rifles used by Argentina in the Falkland's War were assault rifles. The semi-auto only FN-FAL rifles used by the British in that same war were NOT assault rifles. The Federal government regulates all firearms capable of automatic fire, as do several states, with laws designed to keep such guns out of the hands of poor people. Since 1934 there have been only two homicides with legally owned fully automatic weapons, neither of which were assault rifles. All semi-automatic only rifles are just that: Semi-automatic rifles. Also, the 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with sports.
