Are you guys under the impression that the "assault" rifles we are talking about are full auto? To get a full auto (legally) in this country is almost impossible. I can load and fire a hunting rifle as fast as any AR type rifle, plus there are many that are more powerful and accurate then any civilian version AR.
No i understand that it is semi automatic. What I'm saying is if you have a hunting rifle with a 5 round clip compared to a guy with an AR with a 20 round clip then there is no human way you get off 20 rounds as fast as him.
Plus bolt action hunting rifles are not just a point and shoot you obviously take your eye off the sight to chamber another round. an "Assault" rifle you just point and keep shooting.
