Gov. Browns bill HB 2251 is going to give a legal definition to the term "assault rifle". I believe this is intended to aid other legislation which will target these newly defined firearms. I also believe that the following three sections are going to allow the newly defined definition to apply to manual loading firearms that share the listed platforms and or resemble any of the listed platforms. The key sections I am referring to are: (3)(a) “Assault rifle” means: (A) A selective-fire rifle capable of fully automatic, semiautomatic or burst fire at the option of the user, or any of the following: (it goes on to list many different platforms including AR15, AK47, etc) (C) A copy or duplicate of a firearm described in paragraph (a)(A) or (B) of this sub- section with the same capability as the copied or duplicated firearm; (G) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a rifle into an assault rifle as described in paragraphs (a)(D) to (F) of this subsection, or that can be assembled into an assault rifle as described in paragraphs (a)(D) to (F) of this subsection I would like to be wrong about my beliefs here but it seems pretty clear they are trying to cover all the bases with this language. This bill will be used to assist others with legislation imposing more restrictions on "assault weapons".
