Semi-Auto Ban Introduced In Michigan

posted on October 22, 2016

A package of anti-gun bills introduced on Wednesday in the Michigan Legislature would, among other things, ban the manufacture, possession, sale and transfer of so-called “assault weapons.”

“Assault weapons,” as defined in House Bill 5996, introduced by Democratic state Representative Robert Wittenberg, would encompass the most commonly owned semi-automatic rifles and handguns. The measure also would ban the use of detachable magazines capable of containing more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

As most A1F Daily readers know, semi-automatic rifles, like the AR-15, are the most popular rifles in the United States and are used for home protection, defensive skills-based firearm training and marksmanship competitions. They’re also becoming increasingly popular among hunters.
