Either that or ban the higher capacity magazines but I think that any rifle that can fire a whole lot (more than 10) rounds in a real fast (semi-automatic )fashion will be in danger. I think they can make a case with the public that nobody "needs" to have that type of firearm.
My hope is that since so many own them now that will be harder to do; that is to paint them as a "fringe" weapon.
