Default "Assault Rifle" Ban

If there is an "Assault Rifle" ban, what exactly would that be?

Would the limits/changes be restricted to FFL items like full rifles or lowers, or would it also include uppers/barrels and other parts that are not actually considered to be the "the firearm" (no FFL required)?

I know no one knows exactly but do we have any idea what it would look like?

It could take on many forms, and before someone says it "What is an assault rifle"?

They could ban components like they did last time (collapsible stocks come to mind immediately because I could not get one).

They could also go after the sales of full rifles that meet a certain criteria to be sold after a certain date.

Things like uppers for an AR would be harder because you don't have to have any FFL involved, so no paperwork unless the seller hands it over.

With components they can simply see it on your rifle when you go to shoot. There are limited ways to look at an upper and say "That is a post ban upper, get over here".

If you have a receiver, of any type, on the books prior to an AWB going into place, I would say you can probably assume that there must be a grandfather clause. If there is no grand father clause, then I suspect there will be one final showdown from all those that don't want to give up what they paid good money for and have a legal right to under those ones called "Inalienable".

LOL that's exactly why I put "assault rifle" in quotes

Thanks for the feedback, kinda what I thought, just didn't know if anyone had some more solid leads on what it could be.

In the town two minutes away, you cannot own one because of the high crime rate. No exceptions.....

If the ban were to follow the Clinton model it would most likely ban specific firearms as well as parts or features of other types of firearms. A rough example would be the NJ gun laws, Lautenberg was the architect of the Clinton ban and he and Menendez are leading the charge once again.

That sucks! What town is that? I'm sure the criminals are aware of and follow the "no assault rifles law" as well.

Mods- why was this thread moved from Legal/Activism to General Rifle Discussion? Isn't the thread directly related to legal and 2nd amendment rights?
