Beavah, the anti-gun lobby and the liberal politicians they write legislation for are the ones who defined what an assualt weapon was, and it was all based on appearance. I own a single shotgun that I bought 30 years ago to hunt with. It probably has not been fired in 20 years. That being said, my house is full of "assault" weapons. The kitchen has an array of exremely sharp knives of all sizes. My garage......I can't even begin to list the things in there that can be used to assualt someone with. Hammers, wrenches, pipes, etc. And then there are my sons old baseball bats from when he played little league. And I can't forget my scouting equipment like my Buck knife and my cast iron frying pan. On 9/11, terrorists used box knives to take over aircraft full of people and crash them into buildings. The list of items that can be used as an assualt weapon are endless. The issue isn't the tool used as it is an inantimate object when not in a person's hands. The issue is mental illness that would drive a person to kill others. If I don't have a pry bar, I'll use the biggest screwdriver I can find. A person intemt on killing others will find another way to kill them if their tool of choice is not available. Besides, we don't penalize law abiding citizens by denying them of their constitutional rights because of the criminals who misuse the right.
