Military-Style Guns (Formerly Known as Assault Weapons)

The Utah News reports
Hundreds of the weapons advertised on KSL.com classifieds are rapid-firing military weapons with pedigrees from around the world.


The proliferation of these weapons, based on military designs, including the ubiquitous AK-47 by Mikhail Kalashnikov, have become wildly popular among shooting enthusiasts. And that popularity is a grave concern to gun-control activists.


"I don’t know how anyone can justify having one of those weapons," says Steven Gunn, a spokesman for the Gun Violence Protection Center of Utah. "Except their usual explanation that it is to ‘resist tyrannical government.’ "


I'm not sure what they mean by "rapid-firing." I suppose that can apply to any semi-automatic weapon. It fires as rapidly as you can squeeze the trigger.
The problem seems to always get back to this: how can we distinguish these undesireable weapons from the others which have more-or-less the same characteristics?
I'm certainly no expert, but I'm going to throw out a suggestion here.  If the gun fires one of those scary, pointy bullets, it's banned. Would that work for ya?
Military-Style Guns (Formerly Known as Assault Weapons)What's your opinion?  No more guns that fire these kinds of bullets.  All the remaining ammo stocks can be turned into cool jewelry.
