What’s an Assault Weapon, and why are they so deadly?

Ed Sphire is returning with a new presentation on assault weapons..

There's been a lot of discussion lately about tighter regulations on assault weapons like the AR-15. If we are going to regulate these weapons, we will need a legal definition describing them. And instead of a definition that depends upon specific configurations or cosmetic appearance, we propose a definition based on the factors that make this class of weapons so deadly. Ed Sphire is returning to present a new topic.
