    There is no such thing as a semi-automatic assault weapon. "assault weapon" is a made up term. An "assault" weapon, by definition would be a rifle used my military, and police forces, which is capable of firing 3 round burst, or fully automatic firing. Any rifle sold for civilian use is either a semi-automatic, or a single shot.

    Criminals don't follow gun laws so tougher laws won't detere them from commiting the violence that is permeating society. Also the only thing similer between the ar-15 and ak-47 is that they are rifles. Get the facts straight before you put out mis-leading stories.
