The first time I read it I missed the point about going from 2 characteristics to 1 characteristic. Along with the thumbhole stocks and bullet buttons being banned, this essentially means that any ar-15 will be banned doesn't it? Even the post ban Colt MT rifles would be classed as "assault weapons" as they have a pistol grip. Only way you could have an AR-15 would be for it to have a permanently attached magazine which could only be loaded by "breaking" the rifle like a shotgun and loading with stripper clips.

The whole idea of banning particular weapons based on their furniture never made any sense to me. Either you ban all semi-automatic rifles above a certain caliber, or allow them all as they are basically the same. If this does pass, sales of the Kel-Tec SU-16CA will go through the roof.
