“We were absolutely in a panic when this happened, as far as our inventory,” said gun shop owner Richard Munyon. “It was so ambiguous we didn’t know what was coming down the line.”

So what is an assault weapon?

Not sure why this video is downvoted so much. It seems pretty impartial, the Massachusetts AG says her bit, but it makes it clear that laws are still arbitrary and vague and politicians do not know what they are saying.

Millions of americans are not a threat to anyone. Has nothing to do with gun controls. Its about values. Whether moral, lawful, constitutional, belief and practice in rules to live by such as the golden rule, or just a value in human life, its values that prevent people from commiting violent crime. You want to prevent violent crime, instill as many values as possible, in as many people as possible.

Is assault weapon supposed to be a military weapon term? Guess what else they use in the military? Pistols, bolt action rifles, and shotguns. Assault weapon either means All firearms, or it holds no meaning.

There is no such thing as a assault rifle. Only battle rifles. From the Brown Bess to the M4. And we vote for these people.

What makes a gun an assault weapon? A stupid politician that doesn't know shit about guns.

This ban did NOTHING to stop violence. Mainly because rifles (all rifles) are least represented in gun crime. The bottom of the list.

What makes a gun an "Assault Weapon" ? Not a thing. The Assault Rifle has NOT been invented yet. We have modern battle rifles and Modern sporting rifles. The M1 Garand was a great battle rifle yet it was no different than the Remington 700 semi auto, or the Ruger 1022. It's not the firearm that's the problem, it's the people who use them to commit crime that is the problem. Why penalize law abiding citizens (Who have never shot anybody) by taking away a firearm that is a fun tool.

If I pick up a rock and hit you in the temple of your head the official report will say assault with a deadly weapon.Let's get real America,you're not banning killing machines,you're banning defensive and recreational/sport devices.

Sales did not stop anyting, she created a black market. The moment she tries to enforce her tyrannical laws on the black market all hell will break loose. State rebels and militias will rise. Same as the drug wars but worse.

what makes an assault weapon? A third position on the safety selector for Full Auto. No rifle without the Full Auto position is in any way, shape, or form, an "assault weapon". ABSOLUTELY NO SEMI AUTO RIFLES THAT ARE FOR SALE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC ARE FULL AUTO. PERIOD. Anyone who tells you different is LYING to you. So anyone who tells you different is a LIAR.

First problem in Massachusetts is your Attorney General. For many reasons.

The next issue is no one involved knowing the statistics or facts behind gun deaths, gun related suicides, gang violence, mental illness and guns in general.

Assault weapons aren't real!

I have an assault flashlight..,it’s pretty heavy so it could do some serious damage. I do know for a fact that it was used on the battlefield too. My buddy that was in the marines has the same one and used it in Iraq…

So we can literally say: "this gun has a trigger and a magazine, just like an M-16 so you are going to prison"?
Cool law. What's next? Vehicles looking like the ones used in battles are banned? Knives looking like bayonets are banned? Holy hell.

Assault weapon isn’t a real term it’s all made up by the Democrats

An adjustable stock just makes the gun fit for better control. How would you like you car seats to be locked in the full back position? Magazine? Again. How about a one gallon gas tank in your car? You don't need more! Pistol grip? How would a grip make a gun deadlier?? Has anyone ever been killed because a rifle had a flash hider…nonsense . The rifle is black. So what? What color should it be? Are racist? Sounds like it. No one has ever been killed by a color.All of this is nonsense.

The "reciever" is the gun by law as it's the only serialized part of the firearm. So they would have to ban the reciever to ban the AR-15 and that would leave a large loophole.

What's the point of owning a gun if it's not deadly? I don't own guns to kill people but they should be able to if need be.
