Very interesting. Although it leaves some questions unanswered. Like are civilians now allowed to own semi-automatic rifles like AR15, Mini-14, M1 Carbine etc?
Below details what civilians may own:
(dd) Small arms refer to firearms intended to be or primarily designed for individual use or that which is generally considered to mean a weapon intended to be fired from the hand or shoulder, which are not capable of fully automatic bursts of discharge, such as:
(1) Handgun which is a firearm intended to be fired from the hand, which includes:
(i) A pistol which is a hand-operated firearm having a chamber integral with or permanently aligned with the bore which may be self-loading; and
(ii) Revolver which is a hand-operated firearm with a revolving cylinder containing chambers for individual cartridges.
(2) Rifle which is a shoulder firearm or designed to be fired from the shoulder that can discharge a bullet through a rifled barrel by different actions of loading, which may be classified as lever, bolt, or self-loading; and
Does this mean that for rifles, civilians can now own any semi-auto rifle like an AR15 , Mini14, or M1 carbine?
