I own a Remington model 700 .270cal rifle, a J.C.Higgins .270 cal with Mauser action, a Browning "Sweet 16", a Spanish made 16ga O/U, a Ruger 9mm and a Gamo .177cal air-rifle. I have taken game from deer, to squirrel, to rabbit, to grouse and not once have I needed an assault rifle to bring down any game. There is no need to use assault weapons for hunting purposes, unless you want to spoil alot of meat. The only folks I know who actually buy such things are collectors who have no intention of ever using them for anything, and those suffering from severe cases of testosterone poisoning. As for the collectors, there are still plenty of weapons available that were grandfathered in under the old assault-weapons ban. As for the testosterone poisoned, they need to grow up before they're allowed anywhere near a weapon.
