 Rational Basis Analysis of "Assault Weapon" Prohibition, David B. Kopel, Independence Institute   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In 1990, "assault weapons" comprised thirty-six of the 963 firearms involved in homicide or aggravated assault and analyzed by police crime laboratories, according to a report prepared by the California Department of Justice, and based on data from police firearms laboratories throughout the state.
Firearms expert Jack Lewis, whose two books on "assault weapons" are cited as authoritative by gun control advocates in their briefs defending "assault weapon" bans, likewise writes that almost all of the guns dubbed "assault weapons" are well-suited for defensive purposes, although some of the guns are too heavy and cumbersome for field sports.
Official statistics prove that so-called "assault weapons" are rarely involved in criminal activity, and hence the use of "assault weapons" in crime is insufficiently demonstrated to pass the rational basis test.

 Los Angeles Times Special Report on Assault Weapons
Although weakened by compromises with gun interests, the law was the nation's first to attempt to control the spread of assault weapons, with their fearsome firepower and large ammunition capacity.
Rather than describe the characteristics of an assault weapon, the law restricted several dozen named models, with the important caveat that additional assault weapons would be included by the attorney general as they came onto the market, even if arms makers sued the state in each case.
Legislators and law enforcement officials say the deadline also was intended as a way to keep a lid on the number of weapons in circulation--and thus reduce the risk that they could end up in violent hands through theft or under-the-table transactions.

 Harrot v. County of Kings
Harrott, its stock, was dissimilar to the AK series reference weapon, while features that might be familiar only to a gun buff, such as the "sear," [FOOTNOTE 5] were interchangeable with those of the reference weapon, and still others, such as the "receiver cover," [FOOTNOTE 6] were not.
Although most of the weapons included in the list set forth in section 12276 are identified by specific make and model, in some instances section 12276 refers not to a specific make or model but to a designated "series" of weapons.
As the majority' s statement of facts discloses, Harrott never possessed the weapon in question, and thus he was not required to determine, subject to potential criminal sanctions, whether it was part of the AK series and therefore a restricted assault weapon.

 Assault Weapon Panic
The targeted "assault weapons." contrary to the claims of the gun prohibition lobby and their media allies, are frequently used for such sporting purposes as hunting and competitive target shooting.
The experience of law enforcement officials in Maryland has also failed to reveal a problem with so-called "assault weapons." [73] In 1989-90, there was only one death involving a politically incorrect semiautomatic rifle in all 24 counties of the State of Maryland.
Before proponents of "assault weapon" prohibition conclude that public opinion supports their bill, they might ask themselves if this support is more than just confusion over what an "assault weapon" is. If the public is confused, much of the blame lies with journalists who conceive their duty as producing agitprop for the gun prohibition lobby.

 12275 thru 12290 Assault Weapons - Dangerous Weapons Control Laws - Bureau of Firearms - California Dept. of Justice - ...
The Legislature has restricted the assault weapons specified in Section 12276 based upon finding that each firearm has such a high rate of fire and capacity for firepower that its function as a legitimate sports or recreational firearm is substantially outweighed by the danger that it can be used to kill and injure human beings.
It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this chapter to place restrictions on the use of assault weapons and to establish a registration and permit procedure for their lawful sale and possession.
Required authorization is defined as verifiable written certification from the head of the agency, identifying the recipient or possessor of the assault weapon as a peace officer and authorizing him or her to receive or possess the specific assault weapon.

 The Spratt-Furse Law on Mini-Nuke Development
The law was adopted as part of the FY94 Defense Authorization Act (Section 3136 of P.L.103-160), and was a response to interest among some in the Pentagon and policy community in developing low-yield nuclear weapons and developing roles for them in the U.S. post-Cold War arsenal.
The law does not restrict in any way the ability of the weapons labs to research and assess the feasibility of advanced weapons concepts, or to conduct design work on new weapons until that work becomes specifically oriented toward production of the warhead.
Indeed, one nuclear weapon reportedly under consideration to be used as an earth penetrator, the B83, is the largest weapon in the U.S. arsenal, with a reported yield of one to two megatons.

That enhancement would have added three mandatory years to the assault sentence.
Under Washington law and practice, assault with a deadly weapon and assault with a firearm are discrete charges, attended by discrete instructions.

 Saint John's Law Review
Van de Kamp,[89] the California assault weapon law, the first state-wide restriction in the country, was attacked on Second Amendment grounds.[90] After tracing the history of the amendment, the district court held, not surprisingly, that "the Second Amendment stays the hand of the National Government only.
Virginia gun ownership law was supplemented in 1658 with a requirement that all households have a functioning firearm, and in 1673, the State provided indigent citizens with firearms and required them to repay the government for the weapon at a reasonable price when they had the means to do so.

 Law as Weapon in the American Revolution in Rhode Island and Massachusetts
If (as there was) a solid and operational civil government in a colony, English constitutional law generally forbid the use of military law or military forces within that colony to enforce the law that, in theory, was being applied by the local judges and juries.
American control of the law and its processes was a civil (and peaceful) weapon in their resistance to British laws.
This allowed the common law court system of Massachusetts Bay and Rhode Island to threaten the British navy and officials into ineffectiveness as long as open war was not declared.

 Rational Basis Analysis of "Assault Weapon" Prohibition
Foremost among the features which are said to make "assault weapons" different from other firearms is their "high rate of fire."[31] If "assault weapons" were actually automatic firearms, such as machine guns, then the claim would clearly be true.
In Denver, for example, Chief of Police Ari Zavaras testified to the City Council that "assault weapons are becoming the weapons of choice for drug traffickers and other criminals."[84] In a lawsuit resulting from the prohibition that the Chief had endorsed, the Colorado Attorney General's office examined the Chief's ipse dixit.
