You hit the nail on the head.
Are restrictions of the ownership of semiauto rifles and larger capacity magazines the main goal?
Or are they actually after something else?
Tom Gresham, on his Guntalk podcast, has been discussing this.
Maybe what they are really going for is the so called universal background check, expanded to a firearms owner database.
And that could easily lead to a form of gun registration, making confiscation easier.
Could this be the administration's true ambitions?
“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” ~George Washington
