Yahoo Marine,

I was commenting on a post above, "... if a rifle is capable of holding a magazine of over 10 rounds it is an assault rifle." That is not stated in the proposed law. It is NOT the capacity of the magazine that makes it an assault rifle.

As your post shows, the rifle has to be semi-automatic, centerfire, "has the ability to accept a detachable magazine" AND have one characteristic from a list which follows. The number of rounds the magazine holds is not delineated. You could have a one round magazine and it would still be an assault rifle.

The CAPACITY of the detachable magazine is not a factor in classifying a gun as an assault rifle.
