Can we define Semi-Automatic Rifles the Government way?

Great !

None of us own "Assault Rifles" anymore. Case closed Joe !

Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 “personal defense weapons” — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians.

General Service Administration request for a proposal on behalf of DHS seeking more than 7,000 AR-15s and matching 30-round clips “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.”

    Here's the text of the Federal Law that defines what they are, not my opinion:


    title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the

    following new paragraph:

    firearms in any caliber, known as--

    `(ii) Action Arms Israeli Military Industries UZI and


    `(iii) Beretta Ar70 (SC-70);

    `(iv) Colt AR-15;

    `(v) Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, and FNC;

    `(vi) SWD M-10, M-11, M-11/9, and M-12;

    `(vii) Steyr AUG;

    `(viii) INTRATEC TEC-9, TEC-DC9 and TEC-22; and

    `(ix) revolving cylinder shotguns, such as (or similar

    Every gun that goes bang once each time you pull the trigger is semi-automatic.

    Automatics shoot multiple rounds with a single trigger pull.

    I suppose a musket would be an example of a non semi-automatic gun.
