But he also had multiple automatic handguns so that makes that argument a bit weak, plus its only assult rifles so i take it bolt action is fine?

I understand that It defines the rifle type of assault weapon as a semiautomatic firearm with the ability to accept a detachable magazine and two or more of the following:
a folding or telescoping stock
a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon
a bayonet mount
a flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed

so its sounds like its not difficult to find a semi automatic rifle that id NOT classified as an assault rifle

so as measure designed to stop these terrible events it looks as effective as a chocolate fireguard
You cant outrun the world, but there is no harm in getting a head start

Real stupidity beats artificial intelligence every time.
