    Assault is a behavior, not a device.

    A machine gun is a fully automatic mounted or portable firearm, usually designed to fire bullets in quick succession from an ammunition belt or magazine, typically at a rate of several hundred rounds per minute.
    A semi automatic like a AR 15 Bushmaster will fire with each finger pull of the trigger. You would get off between fifty or sixty rounds in a minute.
    Of the two types which is the military assault weapon and which type would you take in battle?

    Assault is an action and "assault weapon" shouldn't even be a thing. I could assault you with a spork or a knife or a rock. Should those be banned too?

    You can get a good description by googling "clinton assault weapons ban" that was law from 1994-2004.

    It showed two firearms on the news this morning. One firearm was a pump shotgun which was legal. The next picture was of the same shotgun with a pistol grip stock which is illegal under the term "assault weapon"

    I've always felt that the bayonet lug by itself can be a particularly dangerous item.

    For the Men in government, with an anti-gun agenda, it is considered an assault rifle if it causes a flow of testosterone when they look at it. For the women, any thing that doesn't look good with a Gucci purse.

    In the eyes of most liberal gun grabbers, an assault weapon is anything that goes "bang".

    The "bans" started with guns needing two (2) characteristics to be classified as an "assault" weapon.
    SOME of those characteristics were pistol grip stock, detachable magazine, semi auto, bayonet lug and on and on!
    The "current" (New York's "Cuomo Law" and Feinstein's proposal) only require "ONE" of those characteristics!
    That means your old Mossberg bolt action .30-30 is an assault weapon because it has a "detachable" magazine!
    Your gramps old Rem Mod 11 is an assault weapon! (it's semi-auto!)
    ....and it just goes on from there!
    Give 'em an inch (gun grabbers!) and they'll take a mile! (or all they can get!)
