Assault Weapons Ban

This legislation bans the sale, transfer, manufacturing and importation of all semi-automatic rifles, pistols and handguns that accept a detachable magazine, have at least one military feature or have a fixed magazine that accepts more than 10 rounds. It excludes such weapons lawfully possessed before this measure is passed and protects certain hunting and sporting rifles and shotguns.
