    Nope.

    That is a machine gun. It is only capable of full-auto. Assault rifles have select-fire (both full and semi or burst)

    Just because we technically can, does not mean it is NOT a ban.

    It is not illegal to buy explosives. That does not mean dong so is practical for the average citizen.

    You are not calling it a ban when for most people it is.

    Depends on who is holding it and what their intent is.

    Both could be used in a mass shooting of unsuspecting civilians.

    Is it? They sure have proven capable of killing lots of people really fast. Call them what you want, but semi auto rifles which can use large capacity magazines must be banned.
