If the assault law is confusing to trained law enforcement personnel how is the citizen supposed to figure it out?
The police officer was supposedly a subject matter expert according to the DA. Then you have the state expert say he is wrong.
The end objective is to get the law thrown out as being unenforceable because it unfairly penalizes the citizen because it is confusing to law enforcement and places undue burden on the citizens.
If the law is not thrown out then at the hopefully it is going to penalize the state, county and local governments with costs for training that will still cause confusion or require a rewrite of the law that has specific criteria for an assault weapon or specifically names firearms that meet the criteria. May even allow citizens to recoup costs from a wrongful arrest. This is at a time when there is no money in the kitty for a lot of levels of government.
Have a nice day at the range
