    I'm guessing he left it intentionally poorly defined, in order to give future courts a lot of leeway in what weapons they think should be banned.

    You're case about the AR-15 leaves out an important variable in the equation - the rate of fire. If you can spray out 30 rounds quickly, then an AR-15 (or any semi-auto) plus high cap mags is doing just about the same as fully auto.

    Or event 5 rounds is very short amount of time. 3 rounds, like hunting regulations require now, is all you need to hunt. You don't want to turn a deer into lead laced hamburger, do you?
