Yeah. And probably only a transfer through an FFL. Private sale should have been cool. Good catch. Journalists seem to believe that all “assault rifles” disappeared during the ban.
“Pre-ban” weapons and “pre-ban” “high-capacity” magazines (those manufactured and possessed by civilians before September 13, 1994) were legal for sale and transfer to other civilians. Several states passed their own AWB laws (with no sunset date), most of which mirrored the federal AWB.
