Interesting is that the proposal, if taken as is, would make a large number of Black Powder rifiles illegal as "Assault Weapons" since many of them nowadays have the "Thumbhole Stock" style of grip, and the "one factor" rules would make even a single trait enough to classify a weapon as an Assault Weapon..
A Black Power, manually loaded, single shot rifle.....is an Assault Weapon.
This is why I'm against how Gun Control is done in Government. Because it's arbitrary, based on perception and fear, not facts and figures, and is (when looked at in detail) patently rediculous in many ways.
There is a wide variety of ways Gun Control could have been handled. This is the most ham fisted and illogical way possible, and reeks of both ignorance, and hatred, of all guns, not a reasonable effort to control illegal guns in illegal hands doing illegal things.
