    Its easy to be against "assault weapons".  When I saw how they define "assault weapons" in the legislation I immediately saw the weaknesses you point out.  IIRC, the features listed were cosmetic accessories that don't really make the weapon all that much more effective.  The most deadly aspect of the weapon is OK, as long as you don't have too many cool extras.  It almost seems designed to antagonize law abiding people who want to own that kind of weapon.

    "So I can own this incredibly dangerous firearm, but a bayonet mount is off limits.  That makes total sense."

    And yeah, every time I go through airport security or get wanded going into a sporting event (the freaking Carrier Dome is not going to get bombed) I think "The terrorist won."

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
