Will the assault rifle ban include hunting rifles?
Like the marlin or the henry lever action rifles and so on

what they consider a assault rifle and what many americans own is much different. may look the same but may not have same functions. assault weapons are automatic. most of what american citizens buy is semi auto. some have no bayonet stud. shucks, some bolt action rifles are more powerful in the wrong hands than the ar's people own. and ar doesnt stand for assault rilfe, it was for armalite 15 the father of this line.

I get the feeling that if it’s anything that can go bang it will be on their cutting block. We will have to see what they can actually do in court.

After Biden's second term, First & Second Amendment will be null and void.
What's the first thing marxists do when they take over? Remove all means of self defense for citizens. You have communists in the White House.

Yes, of course, if it is semi-auto (maybe not bolt or lever action). The 2019 bill proposed by Pelosi included 205 specific makes and models, as a smokescreen, and anything else having a pistol grip, semi-automatic action, and a detachable magazine capable of holding 10 or more rounds of ammunition. In other words, just about every semi-auto rifle and pistol ever made. It's right there in the definition of "assault weapons" in the proposed law. Look it up.
This may become a good opportunity for the US Supreme Court to rule, once and for all, that the federal government cannot regulate firearms at all, and that the Second Amendment actually does include the individual right to carry a machine gun. Then maybe we'll see a Constitutional crisis as people start discussing a 28th Amendment to effectively repeal the Second Amendment, along with parts of the Fourth, Fifth, Tenth and Fourteenth Amendments, leaving only STATE constitutions to protect the right to self-defense by use of individually owned firearms.

There won't be an assault rifle ban. It is unconstitutional. The 2nd has never been about hunting. It says "to provide for the common defense".

Eventually, yes, along with kitchen knives and pointy scissors sooner or later.

Those aren't classified as assault rifles, so I would imagine no.

If the democraps get their way it will be a ban on everything that can fire a projectile including sling shots. Only BLM members using trash cans to break store front windows to collect restitution will be allowed.
