Let's start with the ever-creeping definiton of "assault weapon". I have no intent to assault anyone. How about "balanced capabilty defensive weapon"? Mean-looking black folding stocks, or evil hand grips instantly converts a soft-look Elmer Fudd-style shotgun into an eeevil assault weapon. A semi-automatic pistol is starting to creep into the defintion because the word "automatic" is in there leading some dimwit to think that the pistol will shoot people all on its own.
The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. Personal protection does not limit you to the 4 corners of your dwelling (hence the mandate for ILL-ANNOY to some up with a CC law in less than 30 days). You have the right of self defense wherever you are - per the courts.
