I have a friend with a shotgun that has a pistol grip, that can carry more than 5 rounds, that's an assault weapon under current definitions.
i never said assault weapon = automatic weapon.
Actually, assault weapons to me, are anything past your standard pistol, shotgun, bolt-action rifle--so basically anything semi-auto and above. If you think you have a legitimate need to carry a fucking semi-automatic weapon, or anything more powerful than anything used for hunting, then there's a problem.
Is there a reason for a civilian to carry military/law-enforcement-grade weapons? If you want to fire one of those off, sign up for the military.
