What is an assault weapon in your mind?

If its a full-auto machine gun then you are not doing a damned thing. All you are doing is seizing toys owned only by the rich, few regular folk have them, there are very few legal full-auto weapons around now.

If you aren't talking about full-auto weapons, then you need to be specific. Just waving your hands and saying "OK, I'm not talking about full auto weapons, and yeah the AWB was dumb, but something in between" is simply not good enough.

There is no in-between. virtually ALL of the features in the AWB are useless, and bans on high-capacity magazines are dumb. Either the gun can fire as fast as you can pull the trigger, or it cant. Either it can fire powerful .45 rounds, or it cant.

If you want to ban either of those, you will face fierce opposition. If you don't, then you are really not doing a damned thing.

This is NOT a false choice. There really is no meaningful middle ground here.
