Just exactly what is an "assault weapon ban"?

I like to watch Tucker Carlson on Fox.  He's pro-gun, and a conservative, but interviews his fair share of folks with a different mind set, aka liberals.   I've watched him ask a number of people who want an "assault weapon ban" just exactly what means.  I have yet to hear a clear, cogent response.

When he asks them specifically what they would do with such firearms already in the arms of private citizens, the spinning ramps up so high it's easy to forget the question.  He then asks point blank if a ban would mean that the government would forcibly take such guns from law abiding citizens.  The spin only gets worse.

Maybe Alpha  knows some anti-gunners who can answer this, and post their response.

Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    It isn't about assault weapons with those people. It's about ALL firearms with them, and they want them ALL confiscated, but they're too cowardly to actually state that fact.
    A double action revolver is a semiauto firearm. It fires once for every trigger pull.

    We may give some up but I will guarantee that quite a few will have something held back.

    Political correctness is a liberal degrading of the freedom of speech. George Orwell's 1984 famously incorporated the notion of limiting thought through language (see Newspeak)." Meanwhile, the beatings will continue until morale improves around here.

    Meriam Webster has revised the definition to include any and all semi autos.  Proof that if the dems say something enough, people believe it to be fact.

    Whatever thay can force other people to give up that they're not personally interested in having for themselves.

    I may, or may not, have some made of aluminum and some of polymer like that. I also may, or may not, also have some that aren't milled yet. :smiley:

    If you remember reading the book '1984' then you should have a cold chill running up your back right about now.
