By narrowing its focus to "assault weapons," the District took advantage of Heller's reference to "dangerous and unusual" firearms that can be banned without violating the Second Amendment.

A "dangerous and unusual" weapon is a mustard gas artillery shell, not an M-16 rifle.

I’m sure they would say that my PS-90 is a “dangerous and unusual” weapon.
