    most folks cannot and do not own select fire rifles, known as assault rifles ...they are too expensive and too restrictive to obtain.

    The rifle does not have a 30 shot capacity...the magazines may.

    I am all for banning high cat magazines...no hunter needs more than a 10 round magazine IMO.

    These rifles are activly used by hunters of varmints and for competition shooting so they do have other uses FYI.

    If we cannot speak accurately to what we are trying to achieve we can expect to achieve nothing.

    The term assault weapon was and is a political term...this killer's rifle doesen't do anything that a hunting rifle in the same caliber can do...if the legislation proposed by Diane Fienstein does only what her last 'assault weapon' ban proposed then it is useless.

      the terms of the art.

      I am curious about shooting competitions.  I keep hearing they exist, but how many people really participate.  It's not exactly NASCAR.
