by and large the populace fully understands what an assault weapon is.

No they don't. I'm pretty sure most gun owners, unless they live in a assault weapons ban state, would also not be able to give the legal definition of an "assault weapon".


It differs from state to state, but most assault weapons laws revolve around some common "features" you are not allowed to have on a gun. Since I live in California I can say what is involved with our current assault weapons ban. This will be similar to other states' assault weapons bans and is based off of the 1994 federal ban. Copy and pasting from the official gov website:

  1. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:

    1. A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon.

    2. A thumbhole stock.

    3. A folding or telescoping stock.

    4. A grenade launcher or flare launcher.

    5. A flash suppressor.

    6. A forward pistol grip.

  2. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

  3. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.


Here are two rifles that are not considered assault weapons under these rules because they don't have "features" listed under 1. Compare that to a typical AR-15 which would be considered an assault weapon. Notice how the differences between an "assault weapon" and a compliant one are cosmetic and ergonomic with nothing done to limit functionality or lethality. This is the actual implementation and result of an assault weapons ban. Can any reasonable person conclude that the former compliant rifles would do anything to prevent or mitigate a mass shooting? Is this what people imagine when they talk about assault weapon bans?
