    Don't know if this will fly or not. More "assault weapon" nonsense.

    In this legislation, a pump-action rifle can become an "assault weapon".

    (2) a semi-automatic rifle or pump action rifle that
    21 has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has any
    22 of the following:
    23 (A) a folding or telescoping stock;
    24 (B) a pistol grip or thumbhole stock;
    25 (C) a shroud that is attached to, or partially or
    26 completely encircles the barrel, and that permits the

    1 shooter to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand
    2 without being burned;

    That last part is a new one..... the rest is much the same that was in Obama's failed bill in about 2004.... at least they didn't ad the "or a caliber of .50 or larger"......
