A Primer on "Assault Weapons"

This footage was shot back in 1989 after the mass shooting incident in Stockton, California. We see the differences between the AK-series of automatic rifle, and the SKS-series of semiautomatic rifles. Notice the "sporterized" version of the SKS. It's the same action as the other semi-auto rifle. The conversion from "friendly" to "assault weapon" is well-shown by changing the stock on a Ruger Mini-14. Its a good way of showing that a ban on semi-automatic weapons has great consequences to Second Amendment rights.
