Thats one of the reasons they limited the number of rounds in clips or tubes.
Thats exactly right.. This is the point here I think it is symbolic more than practical. I've owned an SKS which I had the fiber stock, 40rnd clips..blha..bla.. also a MAK-91 which is pretty much exactly the same as an AK but it's not fully automatic
they are classified as assult rifles but they are all "semi-automatic". I also have .22, 12 gauge, .270 and other assorted guns that would not be covered under the ban, but never the less are all "semi-auto" and could do just as much damage.
Fully automatic weapons are allready illegal. I agree with the poster who said they are trying to ban these guns because they "look" bad
